Every day brings new experiences. Especially when you are 10 months old. It seems like just this past week Baby K has just blossomed. She has new words, new funny faces, new movement...it is just amazing! She is now EVERYWHERE!! She is speed crawling and getting into everything. She is pulling up on her play table and on the couch. She is also starting to cruise around - very cautiously. She sometimes makes what I call the "cheerio face" when she gets excited (she makes her mouth a tiny "o"). She loves to do call-and-response with yelling and with making a "ppffffftttt" sound. Her vocabulary now consists of these words: Mama, Dada, up, book, dog, bug, bye-bye (accompanied by waving her hands - adorable). She loves it when I sing the "ABCs". We are also working on blowing kisses - I think she understands what to do but is just not consistent yet.
Since she was teensy tinsy, we would hold her and dance around to a song/beat we made up. She has loved it ever since the very first time. Now, when she is on the floor, if we sing the song, she will dance by herself. I love it. She is so happy and so curious.
We have also, just the past couple of days, started giving her just three bottles a day of 8 or 9 ounces. She seems to be doing fine with that change as she is still eating three meals and sleeping wonderfully.
I can hardly believe that I am about to begin planning her first birthday party. Can it be possible?? Wow...I love her so much and am so blessed to be her mommy. Stay tunes for a big February Post - I have lots of pictures that will accompany that one!!
