Liva & Laia : 9 Months plus a bit more

By Stine Kuskner - Mon 18th Apr 2011

9 MONTHS - 3 April 2011

I spent the whole day without my family today for the first time since Liva & Laia were born! While we were in Denmark in December there were days where Albert and I went out together for the whole day while my parents took care of the girls, and I think we might have done it once or twice here in Barcelona as well, but I haven't been all on my own the entire day for the past nine months. And though I might sound like a horrible mom (again), I really enjoyed it! I thought I would miss them all terribly, especially Liva and Laia, but I was fine. The school where I work had organized a day out for all the staff - admin, teachers, managers, everyone. They had hired a bus to take us about 1 hour north of Barcelona to the middle of nowhere for the typical Catalan tradition of calçots. I LOVE calçots, and since I haven't been at the school much the past year or so, I figured this was a good opportunity to catch up with everybody. We were about 30-35 people, the youngest were around 3 years old, the oldest in their 40s. The weather was decent, the wine was OK, the place was nice, the food was wonderful and the atmosphere was fantastic!

The school is now talking about making it an annual event, I will definitely go again in the future, though then I will bring the girls and Albert if he wants to come. I saw Liva and Laia briefly before putting them to bed, I'm looking forward to spending time with them tomorrow afternoon - I'm going to be out all morning, Heather will take care of them. Gosh, am I really a bad mother???

9 MONTHS - 4 April 2011

I took Liva and Laia for their nine-month check-up this afternoon and the nurse was absolutely amazed by them. She says they are very advanced and intelligent; the way Laia can stand and almost walk is impressive, how Liva "talks" is unbelievable, the way they take in their surroundings and how much they understand is unusual for babies their age, and they are as tall as 12-18 month olds. The nurse even went as far as to say that they will be models when they are older, they'll have the body and the looks for it! :) And then she said about five times that they are so sweet she could just eat them, she wants to cuddle them and never let go. I know exactly how she feels, I'm lucky enough to cuddle them every day! Liva weighs a little over 9 kgs and is 74.5cm tall, Laia weighs about 8.5 kgs and is 74cm tall. We have to start giving them fish, and they can have cheese and real yoghurt - so far we've been giving them special baby yoghurts.

I am so proud of my little girls, I think I walked out of that doctor's office beaming brighter than any christmas tree ever! When we came home and I took them out of the stroller I gave them an extra long cuddle and tons of kisses - I can't get enough of them, and it seems other people can't either. Luckily Liva and Laia seem to love it when I cuddle and kiss them, so I will continue doing it ALL the time.
