Nine Months Old
Cindy Lou is 9 months old, though sometimes and in some ways she seems older. You look into her eyes and you just know she thinks she's at least a toddler on the inside (though she doesn't have toddler skillz). She now has six teeth. She loves water in bathtubs and baby pools, but so far (we've tried twice) public swimming pools make her very unhappy. She's started saying things, or at least making different noises to mean different things: "ma ma ma" when she's tired and wants me to nurse her; "ah!" when she sees one of her brothers and wants to get his attention; "ba ba" sometimes to say goodbye and sometimes for other things. She just started waving goodbye, and if you say, "Let's play pattycake," she'll start clapping her hands (though she's at a loss when you get to the "roooooll it" part). Finally, she no longer rolls to get around, she breaststrokes. She's getting pretty fast at it, too!
