10 Months Old!

I can't believe my precious little girl is 10 months old today.  I REALLY can't believe in 2 months she's going to be a year old! 

There's no doctor's appointment again until she's 1 (sounds so crazy!), so I don't have any stats for you.  I'm guessing she's somewhere between 20 and 21 lbs.  Here's a little bit about my princess these days...

  • Still goes to bed at 7pm
  • Still napping around 10am and 3pm
  • She loves going to bed at night.  She has her bottle, I rock her and sing to her, we cuddle, and then when she's ready she points to her crib.  I kiss her goodnight and she nuzzles in her little corner and goes to sleep 
  • Still sleeping through the night from 7pm until between 6:30am and 7am 
  • She's working on her balance a lot by trying to stand without any support
  • She's still 100% a Mama's girl
  • We're at the height of separation anxiety these days.  If it's just the 2 of us, she's all over the house by herself but as soon as someone else is around she's stuck to me like glue
  • She has 4 teeth and is currently working on 4 more (which seems to be taking FOREVER).
  • She's much more clingy when she's cutting a tooth
  • She loves to talk, babble, squeal, make noises, etc...
  • Says "Mama", "Kitty Kitty" (which comes out more like giggy giggy), and "I love you"
  • Loves giving kisses
  • Points to her nose when you ask her where it is
  • She LOVES water and has mastered the straw cup.  She could care less about traditional sippy cups, we skipped over those and she went right to the cups with straws  
  • Loves to feed herself.  She pretty much eats whatever we eat these days 
  • She prefers veggies and fruits over meat, but I haven't actually found anything she won't eat
  • She points at everything
  • Waves "bye bye" to everyone and everything
I could keep going for days, but I think those are the highlights of the past month.  She's such a joy and I can't imagine my life without her.  It doesn't matter how exhausted or stressed out I am, the second I get home and see that adorable, toothy grin I'm right back in a good mood.  I'm so blessed that God chose me to be her Mother!
