Ten months.

Ten months have gone by since the day we met our little one face to face, and my how she’s grown!


The picture above on the left is when she was about 9 months ago {she was just under one month old.} It’s been incredible to watch God grow my daughter at such a fast pace. She’s really starting to exude personality in the last month. She’s spunky, curious, stubborn {at times}, affectionate, friendly, and silly. She loves seeing people – it’s an instant smile & double-handed wave to them. She gets visibly excited when they wave & smile back. It’s been my prayer since I found out I was pregnant again that she would bring joy to those around her, and that’s exactly what she does. She is full of joy.

10 months-horz


She’s back to her old slobbery grin – two bottom teeth in and her top two trying to pop through…


She’s always been vocal, but now she’s much more communicative. Her noises seem more intentional and have a pattern to them. No real words yet {other than Mama, Dada, & Nana}, but she is definitely trying to communicate. Oh, and she “barks” whenever she hears a dog, pictured below…


Did I mention she’s curious?! Always, always trying to touch and experience something new.


Especially now that she’s cruising. Getting’ into everything! Keeps Mama on her toes for sure!


I could be wrong {first-time-mom and all}, but I think she’ll be walking very soon. She loves to stand & cruise, take a diving lung from one piece of furniture to the next, and will even stand alone for a brief second.

She now loves drinking through a straw. She absolutely loves playing with her volleyball {or any ball, really}. She’ll play roll/pass for at least a half hour straight. She also loves her toothbrush, more sucking on it than anything!


I hesitate to put this in writing, but she’s finally sleeping better. She goes to sleep around 8:30 and usually sleeps straight until 5:30 or 6:30. It’s been a huge relief to get consistent nights in a row with sleep, both for her and for Eugene & me.


She can wave, dance, play patty cake, blow kisses, all on command. My smarty pants! {Although, I realize I’m about as biased as it can get on evaluating her, ha!}


And I think it’s worth mentioning twice: this girl has personality!


I love her silly self!

What a fun month this has been for us, watching her grow. :)
