Today Claire is 9 months old. She has learned a lot in the past several weeks.
She has found great joy in a lot of the things around her. She has had baby food for the first time, found parents, become proficient in crawling, found her screaming voice. She has also found her temper, tantrums, and whining!! She thinks that we should entertain her 24/7 and if we don't she complains.
She has traveled around Taipei. Although Jon and I did most of our sight seeing before we had Claire, we have done a few things with her. We get out every day, mostly in the afternoon when it's scorching HOT(b/c that's after her morning nap). Not a whole lot, but we do get out with her.
She is not afraid of the water and will let you lay her back in the water.
She has learned to hold her bottle. She LOVES her Daddy. She HATES to go to sleep at night. Once we can get her to sleep she will sleep through the night(most times), BUT she hates, hates, hates to go to sleep. She is teething, she has two bottom teeth, and one or two coming in on top. She weighs somewhere around 19 pounds. She grunts and vocalizes in this whining sort of way, but not what I would really consider babbling.
And for the Grandmothers......this is what she looks like when she is giving you a wonderfully smelly diaper!!
