Little One, 9 months

We’re suspicious Little One might be a slug.  Everywhere she goes, she leaves a swath of slime trailing in her wake.  Part drooling from a seemingly never-ending teething season and part snotting from a seemingly never-ending cold season.  It’s particularly cute when she raises an irritated fist to her nose to scrub away at the sludge and then rakes the gel into her hair, eyebrows, or eyelashes.  Cute crusties.  That’s how you know you’re a parent.  You look at your little snot and drool crusted one and your heart actually melts a bit.

Favorite food: mashed banana with coconut cream and cinnamon

Second most favorite food: cat food

Least favorite food: green beans

Favorite toy: Montessori rattle

Favorite non-toy: electrical cords

Favorite activity: crawling over to pull herself on something or someone

Least favorite activity: getting her nose saline and sucked

Favorite weird activity: hanging upside down by her feet

Cutest activity: patting your back when you hold her

Number of teeth: two lower with two uppers on their way

Number of naps: two

Number of self-inflicted bumps and bangs: too numerous to count

Secret identity: Cora the Explorer

Thoughts on baths: most awesome time of the day

Thoughts on being wiped up after a meal: most wretched time of the day

Things that have gone in her mouth that shouldn’t have: dishwasher plug, electrical cords, markers, envelopes, cat food

Cutest noise: a bird-like gurgle that means something along the lines of “I’m pretty, pretty, happy right about now.”

Cutest action: wiggles whole body and dips head over to the side when particularly excited

Likes: songs, books, people’s faces, being thrown up in the air, Little Friend
