I swore to have Christmas posted before her 10 month post. Oh well! I have more topics than just monthly milestone posts, but was sidelined by The Hunger Games trilogy last week!
Now that you’re 10 months I’ve started to freak out about your 1st birthday. Not the event itself, but the fact that it’s been a year since you joined our family. But we’re not there quite yet!
This month feels like it’s been all about food. You insist on feeding yourself, you have finally mastered the sippy cup, you throw full-blown fits if we do not share our food with you, and we have yet to find a food that you don’t like. The number of new foods this month has been astounding, but we should probably slow down and make sure you’re good with this current menu before moving on.
As far as your mobility, you’ve become quite the crawler and have been on a constant seek & destroy mission this month. If it is up, it must be down, and if it is in, it must be out. These very simple rules seem to drive your every move these days. To add an extra element of fun for mommy, you have taken your “taste testing” to a whole new level. I recently found you licking a (covered) electrical socket and sucking a leaf of a (safe) potted house plant. I swear we feed you enough.
We’re becoming more active in the local play group now that you’re mobile and you still seem to really enjoy being out and about. You “chase” the other babies, but once you reach them, you’re not quite sure what to do, so you’ll resort to your favorite activity – clapping.
As always, we cannot wait to see what you have in store for us!
