Cecily's Celebrations: One Year (and then some)!

Well, since Cecily is almost 15 months old, I guess it's time for me to write my one-year post about her.  :)

Sweet, sweet Cecily.  She brings such joy to our family.  Right now, I think she's kind of a middle ground between the twins and Marlowe.  She's got the sweet spirit of the twins, with the curious nature of Marlowe.

Cecily is QUICK.  Surprisingly quick.  She likes to chase me around the kitchen island, and sometimes I can barely keep ahead of her!  She started walking earlier than any of her sisters, too.  Thankfully, she's not a climber, though (knock on wood!).

She has 6 teeth so far: 4 on top, and 2 on bottom.  I love her grin.

She's a mommy's girl.  Last night, she was a little clingy, so Tony tried to take her so that I could finish supper.  She literally climbed around me, from my side to my back, like a little monkey, in an effort to stay with me.

We finally moved her out of our closet (it's not as bad as it sounds!) when she was around 12 months old.  She's in the room that she and Marlowe will share, but until Cecily stops waking up at 6 a.m. (sometimes earlier), Marlowe is on a cot on the twins' room.  It's working out nicely.

Speaking of her sisters, they all have such a great relationship with each other.  Hadley loves Cecily, so deeply that she almost can't contain it.  She likes to play on Cecily's level and make her laugh.  Leila takes on a more responsible role of helping Cecily up the stairs and watching her while I'm in the shower.  And Marlowe and Cecily are becoming friends.  They enjoy each other's company and like to do some of the same things.

Cecily Truth, we are so thankful that you are in our family!  You are loved!
