9 month clementine (and a video!)

Friday, February 7, 2014


Clementine has been out in the world for as long as she grew in my belly. I can hardly believe it. At least 15 times a day her dad and I will turn to each other and say with a sigh, "I love her." She's quirky and funny. Playful and adventurous. Strong willed and cheeky.

She dances as soon as she hears music, waves goodbye (usually a bit too late), uses me as a human jungle gym, is slightly afraid of cats, plays peek-a-boo, pets other babies on the head and loves to climb up stairs. She's the world's messiest eater (see #clemeats on Instagram) and when we nurse she sticks her hand into my mouth and pokes around at my teeth, which she thinks is hilarious.

She has this desperate need to be standing at all times. Twice this week she has let go of us and stood all by herself. I'm so not ready for her to start walking (because then she might as well be an adult) so I hope she holds out a while longer. But with this little monkey, who knows?

  3. oh she is so delicious! and those yellow shoes! such a sweet video, beautiful memories being made. and don't be too surprised if she starts trying to walk soon.. my eldest two were walking confidently by 9.5mths and my youngest at 10mths. when I think of how small some babies are at that age I can see now why people used to stare! they look too small to be able to manage it but when they make up their mind, they're off! x

  8. So much cuteness in a neat little package! My 16 month old daughter was standing up at 8 months so i braced myself for an early walker but i don't think it even occurred to her to walk, she waited until 1 week after her first birthday to take her first steps and then it was like she'd been walking her whole life so you might get lucky and have a while before she wanders off!

  11. Aside from my own, who I obviously think is adorable I think little Clementine has to be up there with the cutest baby of all time. Of all time no less. Happy 9 months of motherhood to you too Gaby. x

  14. That first year is such a huge adjustment for new parents and of course so much happens in babies life from laying there to smiling to recognizing people, playing, waving, eating, crawling, standing.........the whole range of sensory things..it's incredible and so amazing when you think about it. We know babies are born everyday but when you actually have a baby OMG ...it's so incredible they make you smile, they make you cry, they make you exhausted but there is so much LOVE that you could never have imagined before kids. She is doing so well. Both my kids walked about one week before they turned 1. All kids are different but you'll be more on your toes at the playground than ever when they start walking... Enjoy.
