Hangin' Ten


Ten months, that means she has been out longer than she was in and
we only have two months left until she is a year.
I just can't quite wrap my brain around how fast this is all going.


This month there has been lots and lots of babbling. She is definitely saying, "ma ma ma ma" and "da da da" and every now and then pointing at things. She loves to clap, clap, clap her hands and it seems to be a way she can communicate with us, she uses the clapping as a way to show how happy she is or when she is super frustrated ,she will clap her hands together extra hard along with a screech to let us know that she doesn't approve. One of the cutest things she is doing lately is to get a blankie and lay down on it and say, "ni-ni", then sit up and giggle at us.


Fifi is fast, she can crawl or bear crawl (sort of a moving down dog) across the house faster than fast. She is cruising around the furniture and doing so one handed more often than not. She has mastered going UP the stairs, but not so much the coming back down them.


She is even doing a few seconds here and there of, "look ma, no hands". I feel like this month she will figure out walking- you can tell she REALLY wants to and it is making her crazy. She loves to hold your fingers and tour you around the yard or the house, giggling the entire trip.


She and O are so silly together. He often plays pretty rowdy with her, but she usually comes up laughing and more often than not he is the one crying after she hits a little too hardly or pulls some hair. We really need to work on the gently hands with her.


We are still nursing, but she really loves solid foods. Beans are some of her favorites, pinto or black. She also likes eggs a whole lot too. My little protein girl.


As she falls asleep in my arms at night she often plays with my hair and I have found that twinkle-twinkle is one of the only songs I can sing to get her to calm down when she is in a totally hissy.
She is a total Daddy's girl. If he doesn't come to her right away when he gets off from work, she let's him know about it. I love watching her be in love with him.

This girl is still full of sunshine and mischief- and a ton of love.
xo Fifi! Happy 10 months.
