10 Months Old!

Double digits have arrived!  That can only mean one thing, the big ONE is right around the corner.  This month has been an absolute blast.  Time is flying by as usual, but we have made a lot of good memories and had lots of fun.  We have taken advantage of this beautiful spring and gotten outside as much as possible.  I feel so blessed every single day that I get to raise this super sweet, beautiful, special little girl!

You are growing so fast little lady I can barely keep up!  You have so many new tricks I don't even know where to start.  You are right on the verge of walking.  You can stand up without holding on to anything and you are very proud of yourself for doing so.  I let you start playing with your walker and you fly around the house with that thing.  Our poor cabinets and baseboards are taking a beating, but you are having a great time learning to walk.  For now, you are an expert crawler and super fast!

Only one little tooth this month, bottom left.  I am pretty sure you are working on some more though because you are back to your super slobbery self and you put everything in your mouth.  At least once a day I am fishing something out of your mouth than you found on the dirty floor are not supposed to have.  You are ninja fast when you want something.  I can drop a crumb and before I have time to bend down you have whipped it up in your mouth.

Sleep has been so much better this month after a couple of nights of crying it out, again.  I guess mommy needs to realize this is an ever changing game and with each new stage comes new reasons you no longer want to sleep, haha.  Bedtime is around 7:45 and you sleep through the night again until around 7 in the morning.  You have been taking a really good nap in the mornings, but not so much in the afternoon.  That one is mostly spent exploring in your crib, beating on the rails and walls and pretty much anything to avoid going to sleep, sigh.

You are one smart little girl.  I can wave to you now and you wave back and say bye-bye.  I don't think you actually understand what bye-bye means, but you know it goes with a wave so coming or going or just chilling in the floor we wave and say bye-bye all day long :)
You also play peek-a-boo! You cover your sweet little eyes up with your chubby little fists or whatever you are holding and pull them down super fast when I say boo! It has to be one of the cutest things I have ever seen.

Curls, curls!  Your hair is getting so thick and it definitely has some curl to it.  Most of the time it is a hot mess so I don't know what we are going to do with it when it gets longer.  You have enough hair now to wear a bow on a clip and it looks so pretty.  My baby girl is growing up.

You have decided that it is time to eat real food and you want to feed yourself.  I have let you try lots of new things and you pretty much like everything.  I just tear up little pieces of whatever we are eating and you are happy to eat beside us at the table.

We finally made the transition to the big bath tub! With no tears!  You even let me pour water right over your head to rinse without a fuss.  The floor, walls and mommy end up soaking wet most nights, but you have a blast playing in there.

You love animals!  Anytime you go to Nana's you go crazy over her little puppy. You even love stuffed animals.  Nana got you a big kitty for Christmas and you wallow that thing in the floor and love all over it. It is so sweet.  You also give mommy and daddy lots of love these days. You will lay your sweet head on our shoulders and just chill.

Some of your not so favorite things right now include changing your clothes or your diaper.  You make sure to let everyone know you are not happy with it by shrieking as loud as possible. I do have to say your squeals are quite impressive. You even leave my ears ringing sometimes!

I just love being your momma my precious girl.  You make me so happy and touch my heart in ways I didn't even know was possible.  You are such a little joy to us.  I think I am still your favorite, but you are getting really close to your daddy and it melts my heart to watch the two of you together.  I love playing with you and I am so blessed that we get to spend so much time together.  I love you to the moon and back my sweet angel baby! 
 Happy 10 Months!
