2 months shy of a year
How in THE world are you already 10 months old little girl?!
I am shocked at how time has just whizzed on by with you. Weren't you born like 2 months ago? No.
Forgive me if I try to impede your progress so you stay my baby forever. Okay, I really won't do that. Or will I?
Well, here you are.
Your new favorite activity is chasing your sister around the house with your little walker toy. She pushes her dolls in a stroller and you follow behind. You both laugh hysterically at each other. It's pretty awesome.
And those teeth. Gracious girl. As soon as one cuts through another starts working its way out. It seems you can't get much relief. I hold you and comfort you as much as you'll let me, then it's back to you moving around and exploring your world.
Now let's talk food. You are so picky. I don't know if it's a texture, temperature or just taste thing but goodness, you will not eat it if you don't want to. Some days you'll eat a little turkey, other days you purse your lips tighter than I knew was humanly possible - just at the sight! You are giving me a run for my money on the eating front.
But, what troubles you give me in the food department, you make up for in your sleepiness. You take great naps, like 2 hour naps at a time! And, you sleep 11 hour stretches at night! You are gold. Unless the teething wakes you, then you just need a little pat and rub on the back and you go back to twirling your hair and off to dreamland.
You are a rock star baby. I love you more than I ever dreamed possible and I have loved being your mom every day of your life and I thank God each day for the blessing you are.
Now, I'm off to find a time machine to keep you my baby just a little while longer, although, I know I'm going to love getting to know you even more every day to come. So, maybe I'll skip the time machine and just soak you up as much as I can.
I love you little one.
