Eliana is 9 and 1/2 months old. She is learning so many new things. Although she doesn’t have a quick crawl, she is getting around. Yesterday I sat her down with some toys while I worked on scooping out the seeds of some butternut squash for her food. When I looked back, she had moved a couple of feet and was standing and holding onto the chair legs.
Look Mom, no hands!!!
She can do this for about 5 seconds before she needs to grab a hold of something or will fall into my arms.
Although I thought it was cute the first day I found her like this, it isn’t so cute anymore. She now gets up and cries rather than napping. I don’t know if she knows how to get down yet. One day this week I found her with her head down on the railing whining and rubbing her eyes. Some day she won’t fight sleeping as much. That day might be in a couple of years, but I am still holding onto hope.
I love Eliana. She brings us so much joy and laughter. I’m so glad that I get to be home with her.
