Cece is 10 Months Old!

10's so cliché, but where has the time gone??

When our children first make their way into the world, it seems like time stops for a bit.  You are dealing with sleepless nights, constant feedings and just survivin'! Then the groove hits and it's smooth sailing with the occasional obstacle. But, when they make that turn from baby to toddler it almost feels like it happens overnight.  I woke up yesterday wondering how it was possible that my little tiny baby is now 10 months old.

Cece is such a joy and we are so blessed that she is the final piece in our family puzzle.  She is a perfect mix of easy-going and feisty and she almost always has a smile on her face.  Cece has been crawling for 5 months now and she's really starting to master the "furniture scooch," testing her limits on her 2 feet.  Her brother had just started walking at this age, but Cece is in no hurry for that and we're okay with it! (seasoned parents will understand why! ha!)

She loves sweet potatoes, plain bagels, broccoli, carrots, berries and bananas.  Avocados are not her favorite and she's sure to make it known whenever I put that green goo on her plate.  She's not very picky yet, but she is definitely showing us her favorites now.  She only has one tooth that popped through this past Saturday.  She's still got that gummy smile you see above and I'm a little sad to see it go!  At her doctor's appointment last week she weighed almost 20 pounds and was 80% for her height and 65% for her weight.  I wonder if she'll have my height?? I hope so! Towering over Daddy is fun :)  

Her brother is her biggest fan, calling her "my baby" or "sister" or "Celie/Celia." He loves his "baby" and she loves him just as much. They interact like 2 peas in a pod.  There is nothing more satisfying as a mother to 2 beautiful children than watching them interact together with so much love. I know it won't always be this way, but we are making every effort to document them together as much as possible. Proof for their teenage years that they did in fact love each another at one point ;)  For some reason I have a feeling that Charlie will always be Cece's biggest advocate and best friend. He's just so great with her. <3

Cecilia Anne, you are a light in my life.  Proof that perfection exists in a not-so-perfect world.  I am so proud to be your Momma and I cannot wait to celebrate your 1st year in just a few short months.  Happy 10 Months, Baby Girl!
