September Sylvie photos


At long last, here are the September photos of Sylvie, aka Space Baby!

In the past 7 months she's grown a great deal; not so much in size as in personality. Although still a very laid back baby, she does occasionally get frustrated and isn't afraid to let everyone know it. She's not yet sitting unsupported or crawling but she is a lean, mean rolling machine and if something is out of reach by hand, she'll use her little monkey feet to grab it. She's very ticklish when she's in the mood to be and giggles, squeals and squawks when Theron or I pretend to gnaw on her ribs or chew on her chubby thighs, (which are so very, very chewy.) She would dearly love to make friends with Izzy, but the beagle is a little reluctant to do so. Smudge is more accomodating and allows Sylvie to grab and yank handfuls of fur without so much as a twitch. (BTW I do admonish Sylvie to "be gentle with the kitty", but so far she hasn't quite grasped what that means.) She's proving to be a rather sharp kid, having figured out that there's a latch on my nursing tank tops which she tries to undo when in the mood for boob juice and last night she was very intently examining one of the toy attachments on her whozit, rolling it this way and that in her hands to make it rattle.

As for our girl's weight, she is now up to 12lbs 13oz. What's funny is that because of her leaness and thatch of hair, to me she has the look of a toddler despite her overall small size. Sylvie's dietary experience has continued to broaden with the additions of applesauce, green beans, mangos, bananas and as of last night, meat! She gobbled down pureed beef with carrots like a true gourmand. No doubt about it, this kid can eat. I guess that it's just mostly going to support her hair growth!
