10 Months...a little late


It's so hard to believe my baby girl is already 10 months old (actually almost 11 months). When she was born it felt like her first birthday was an eternity away and now it's only 6 weeks away! She's growing up WAY too fast!

She weights about 21 lbs now according to our home scale. She's wearing size 9 month and 12 month diapers and size 3 diapers. We will be moving her to size 4 after this box is done.

She still only has 2 teeth. But that doesn't stop her from eating whatever she wants. Anything we eat, she wants to eat.

She's "talking" all of the time now. She says dada most of the time. She has said mama a few times. And she says ca-ca (for Cajun), Uh oh, and other gibberish. And she says "Mmmmm" after she takes a bite of something she likes. It's so cute.

She plays patty cake, waves bye bye, and blows kisses. She's learning new things everyday. I hoping she starts picking up on some the sign language we have been trying to teach her.

She loves her dog, Cajun, and being outdoors. I think she would sleep outside with him if we would let her. He always licks her in the face and she just giggles and giggles.

She loves drinking her bath water, which is gross. But it keeps her from standing in the tub so I let her do it.

She loves helping us load the dishwasher and load or unload the dryer. She's such a big helper.

She has been starting to do some not-so-nice things lately too. When she's tired of eating she will slap the spoon out of our hands and it slings food across the floor. And lately she's hasn't been wanting to sleep in her crib. She's sleep there for a few hours and then wake up screaming until we take her out of her bed and put her sleeping with us. We are stopping that SOON. I think we're going to try the cry-it-out method this weekend. Hopefully she catched on quickly.

I could go on and on about her. She is so much fun and brings a smile to everyone's face. We can't go down one aisle at the grocery store without someone stopping to smile at her. She's such a doll and we love her so much!
