nic and i are both in school full time but thankfully we have great friends who like daphne, and daphne likes them. it works well and we're so grateful to have the help.
she has also gotten increasingly mobile which has meant she has gotten increasingly naughty.
after a few weeks of a makeshift barrier we finally got a baby gate to separate her from the kitchen. i drop too much raw chicken on the floor for her to ever be in there. [kidding- but it is always the messiest room in the house- but i must say the floors aren't as dirty as they look, they are dirty, but there are also lots of lovely dents and scratches in the linoleum. oh, the joys of renting] so here she is acting rather sad at her "cage"
check out those legs! i love them. she is going to have some great calf muscles- always on her tippy toes.
Her high chair arrived today! she was so happy and clappy when we put her in it. She already loves getting new things, oy vey.
she is actually getting a lot better with eating food and i can tell the high chair really helped today! she was excited to have new place to eat, i could just tell :)
she has eaten this week:
apple cinnamon puffs
gerber cheddar puffs
organic oatmeal (her fav)
garden veggie puffs
sweet potato puffs
hawaiian delight (banana and pineapple)
not bad, huh? I'm pretty proud of her.
if any of you super moms have any suggestions about getting your kids to eat (and drink from a sippy cup), i'd love to hear them!
I'll be sure to post in the next few days all about her latest and greatest for her 9 month post.
I can't believe we have a 9 month old... insane!
