10 Months Old



I cannot believe that we have a 10 month old!
I am still amazed at how much you continue to change.
You are still as independent as ever, however you have started to snuggle a bit more (which melts my heart!)

You truly are the happiest baby 99.9% of the time, and only ever get fussy when you are tired.
Your personality is really coming through.
You LOVE to laugh and will laugh at just about anything (especially when Bella whines).

Last month was a trying time for temper tantrums, and I am VERY pleased to say that they are subsiding quite a bit.  You have also stopped screaming for our attention (for the most part).

Funny observation: you sneeze EVERY morning during breakfast - and it normally happens within the first 3 bites of oatmeal.  Daddy FINALLY started paying attention and the amount of oatmeal you get all over him has decreased quite a bit :)

You took 2 unassisted steps this past month...
I think you would've taken more however you saw me watching and immediately sat down.

I am busy planning your first birthday party.
Here's a hint on the theme...
M I C...K E Y
M O U S E

Because, let's face it... as much as you are our little monkey - you LOVE LOVE LOVE Mickey!
It seems so weird to be planning - it's like we JUST brought you home!

Lots more birthday updates on future posts!

You were babbling and laughing after your bottle, and all of a sudden you slowly stuck your lip out.
We could help but laugh - and you made sure to ham it up for the camera!
You definitely got that from your mama!

Favorite Moment:
I think Daddy and I will agree this month!
Our favorite moment has definitely been when we pick you up.
You will rest your head on our shoulder, and then wrap your arms around our neck.
You give the best hugs!
