To My Sweet 10 Month Old Baby Girl
You turned 10 months old on the 4th of July, and we had a blast celebrating! We started off the day at a hot air balloon festival with Daddy's side of the family, which you thought was very fascinating. We then headed up to spend the day with my side of the family and watched a parade, went swimming, and had a BBQ. At the end of the day, we watched fireworks, and even though you were so tired, you stayed awake, and you loved watching the sparkly sky.
This month you took swimming lessons with me, Aunt Autumn, and your cousin Avery. You love swimming so much, and if I would let you, I'm sure you would stay in the water all day every day. I was worried you would be nervous about being in the water, but you were always so happy and loved kicking your legs and splashing in the water. We even practiced dunking you under the water, and while it wasn't your favorite, you didn't even cry. We spent a lot of time this month at a water park, and you loved crawling around in the wave pool. You were sometimes a little too brave, and would crawl in too deep, so we'd have to really stay close by and watch you, but you always loved being in the water.
You are a very fast crawler and love to get into everything. If I take my eyes off of you for only a couple of minutes, sure enough, you will try to tip over containers, empty baskets, and make all sorts of messes. Even with all chasing after you I have to do, you are still so sweet and happy that I can't help but just laugh.
This month the last of the four baby girl cousins we got in our family was born. Sonja was born a couple of weeks early, on Aunt Alicia's birthday. You actually got your first cold the day before she was born, so you didn't get to meet her until about a week later. I can't wait to watch you four girls as you grow up, I'm sure you girls will be great friends and have a lot of fun together.
You also decided this month that you were too grown up for baby food. You had only been eating pureed foods regularly for about two months, but once you had six teeth, you were much more interested in eating whatever your daddy and I were eating instead of the mush we had been giving you. You love feeding yourself little pieces of food, and your favorites right now are green peas, zucchini, tomatoes, and cheerios You are such a good eater, which makes me so happy!
You are a hoot, little girl. I love you to the moon and back, and I am so glad that you are my sweet little girl.
