six months

Last week marked six months since Clio was born and a very unproductive week it turned out to be in our house.  We have all been battling a particularly nasty virus.  Clio seemed to kick it the fastest but Leif and I have been really struggling for over seven days now.  Leif is slowly crawling out of the hole too but I managed to get a bacterial infection and am now taking antibiotics for my sinuses.

Anyway, that explains the lack of posting for the last week.  On to the cuteness...

I can hardly believe how quickly the time has flown by.  This morning I looked at Clio and could swear she actually looked older than the she did the night before.  That probably had something to do with the fact that all of a sudden she decided she no longer wanted to be swaddled and given a paci in order to fall asleep.  Bam.  All grown up.

She's thiiiiisssss close to blowing our minds by crawling.  Ok, not really, that is still a ways away (thank god) but man can she wiggle all around.  And she is fast!  So fast that we can no longer take our eyes off of her for even a second!  

She's also made the decision that sleeping through the entire night is for chumps.  Why sleep for eight hours at a time when mom will bring you back into a warm bed and feed you and snuggle you?  That is way better than dreaming the night away in a crib alone.

Oh and the teeth!  The teeth just keep coming, ready for some chow.  Bananas are good and so are sweet potatoes but avocado is not happening.  

Getting big too.  Now 16 pounds and nearly 26 inches long.   

She's also looking more and more like her dad.  Of course, I seem to be the only one who thinks that.  Maybe it is because I think she has more of Leif's personality than mine.  Which means she is bright and friendly and smily and sweet as pie.  

What a girl!  We just love her to pieces.


  1. Brianna- I lOve this post! Those pictures are perfect. It was wonderful seeing you all last weekend, I had a great time with my dearest of friends. Talk to you soon... M

  2. I believe you about Clio's Daddy. This also sounds like her Mom:

    "...bright and friendly and smily and sweet as pie."

    Isn't it? Just like you?

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, That Baby Is So Cute. I run right out of ways to talk about cuteness like that.

    Clio, you little Darling!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for such a yummy bunch of bright-eyed baby pictures. She is a "regular sunbeam," to quote HBC, I think in Howards End?

    Only she's not regular. She's super. Clio the Super Sunbeam.

    **happy sigh**
