Ten Months

Sweet Baby Girl, you are 10-months-old today!

I can’t believe how time has flown.

You are so much fun, and I love watching you grow and learn new things.

You’re no longer just reaching milestones from time to time. You seem to be hitting several all at once.

You’ve been crawling, pulling up, moving from sit-to-crawl, and just on the go for a while now, but you’re getting so good at all of these things. You are so mobile, and I love watching your face as you do something new, whether it’s using a new object to pull yourself up or walking a bit farther while holding onto Mama or Daddy’s hands. You’re so excited and proud of yourself. I hope you always feel that kind of joy.

I love to listen to you talk. You babble ALL the time, and your current favorite ‘words’ sound a lot like ‘gurgle/google/oogle/goog’. You also mimic a lot of words/sounds/syllables that you hear me say. I swear you said ‘E-I-E-I-O’ and “Row Row Row Your Boat’ and 'good job' this weekend!

Sometimes, I actually think you’re having conversations with us. It really does sound like you’re contributing a ‘thank you’ or a ‘bless you’ from time to time.

And, then there are the words that I am positive you know the meaning of: mama, dada, hi, bye bye, ah-boo (peek-a-boo). You like to wave and say hiiiii or babye any time a person enters or leave a room.

It’s so much fun talking and playing with you.

You love to ‘bump’ heads.

You love to be tickled on your collar bone.

You love bath time.

And the cutest thing, you’ve recently just started laughing at yourself. I’m not sure what is making you laugh so much, but you will just giggle, giggle, giggle. I love knowing that you’ve got some great secret in that little head of yours.

You also gave the biggest belly laugh yesterday when I threw a ball up in the air over and over again. I don’t know why this was so funny, but I loved that amazing laugh.

You’re a very curious girl. You will find the tiniest button, clasp, or hole in a shirt or toy and study it for a long time. You’ve recently discovered shirt collars, and love to grasp them. I think it’s so you’ll know when we try to put you down in your crib. You’re a little clingy lately, and you want to be held all the time. (Shhh, I might complain from time to time, but I actually love all the extra cuddles!)

Physically, you’re growing too. You are just under 17 pounds and about 27-28 inches long.

You still just have the 6 teeth (4 top, 2 bottom). I know I have been saying that the other bottom 2 are coming ‘any day now,’ but I’m sure they are … those gums are pretty puffy lately.

Your dark blond hair is getting longer and curlier every day.

Your blue eyes are still blue!

I could go on and on and on. Thanks for the best ten months, we are looking forward to so many more to come!
