Cecilia 9 Month Checkup

Cecilia taught herself a new skill recently - crawling!  She is motoring around the house on a regular basis and finding all sorts of things she can pickup off the floor or cords she can pull on.  She is so proud of herself and is clapping, waving and smiling with excitement.  
This past weekend, Mom went to Arizona for a girls weekend, so Dad had both girls all weekend.  Many of the local relatives who enjoy helping out were traveling so it truly was Dad and the girls.  Maeve was such a great helper all weekend - having an extra set of eyes on Cecilia was much appreciated.  Dads favorite was when Cecilia would crawl over to the nightlight in our upstairs hallway and start trying to play with it much to Maeve's dismay!!  She would run over to Cecilia and tell her no thank you Cecilia!  Then she would proceed to remove the nightlight from the outlet and "put it up high" so Cecilia couldn't touch it.  Saturday we had a play date with Dads high school friend Craig and his daughter Charlotte.  On Sunday Dad was super brave and took Maeve to an indoor playpark and climbed around on the adventure park.  Dad strapped Cecilia into the Ergo carrier and she went along with us for the adventure!  Other parents were looking at Dad like wow, what in the world is he doing.  Aside from the girls waking up at 5 all weekend (and Cecilia in the middle of the night), Dad really enjoyed the special time together.
Tonight Dad took Cecilia to the doctor for her 9 month checkup.  She checked out in A+ health (for once we aren't going to the doc every other day).  We are going to begin introducing the sippy cup into her meal time and continue trying new table foods.  She is loving her table foods thus far.  We have a new plan for getting this child to sleep through the night, courtesy of the pediatrician who was nearly certain her plan would work.  We will report back after our 7 day program she prescribed.  
Below are the stats from her 9 month appointment as well as some pictures from this past weekend/doctor visit.
Height: 28.5 inches - 62%
Weight: 18.1 pounds - 74%
Head Size: 17.5 inches - 62%
