Ten Months

Baby girl, you are not so much a baby anymore. You are growing up so quickly and becoming so independent! Lately you've gotten so bold and fearless when it comes to exploring and finding new things to do, and you're pretty tough when you inevitably stumble and fall.

Your newest "trick" is to stand by yourself until you realize what is happening then you start squatting in order to get down where you're most comfortable. It's really cute. You are so proud when we notice and cheer you on! I suppose that means you'll be walking sooner than later. Then it will all be over. You already don't keep still as it is...I can't imagine what you'll be like once you're walking! 

You are still our tiny girl, so petite, but such a BIG personality! You continue to fill a room with your joy and our hearts with your love. My favorite thing you've started doing is taking a break while you are playing to come over to one of us and just rest your head on our shoulder. It melts my heart every time. At your last doctor's appointment, you weighed in at a whopping 17.5lbs (4th percentile!) and 28in. long (29th percentile). Hehe. You are wearing mostly 6-9 month sizes but can still fit in a few 3 month dresses and tops. You still don't have any teeth but the doctor wasn't concerned...she said she's seen some babies get their first tooth at 18 months! Hopefully you'll get some before then! :)

As the months fly by we're just trying to soak it all in because we know it will be gone before we know it. I still can't believe that we will shortly be celebrating your first birthday!! Yikes! I can't wait to see what the next month brings! We love you, baby girl.
