Two weeks ago

somebody turned 10 months old. And although there were plenty of pictures snapped to document this double-digit milestone, the holidays (among other things) interfered with my ability to actually post them! 

So here's a few updates this month:

Weighing 21.5 pounds (with clothes on and a huge meal in your belly), so lets just call it 20.5 pounds instead.   I'm sure your taller too, but measuring you is just not as easy as it once was so I think we'll wait until your one year appointment.  Hard to believe I'm writing one year.

Eating everything (that you can feed yourself).  We are buying a lot less yogurt.

Two new teeth have appeared on the top with two more on their way, which is making you a little grumpy.

We have made it halfway through flu season with just a couple runny noses.  In fact you still haven't been sick with anything other than a little cold.  Yes I'm knocking on wood.

You enjoy waving at just about anyone, and smile and giggle as if pleased with your new found talent.

You can stand without holding on to anything.  

You scream in delight when you are walking (whether it's us or a push toy you are holding on to).  Not that we are trying to encourage this kind of behavior.  We are perfectly content with the crawling phase.  

You have rekindled a love of the pacifier.  You had not used them in over 2 months and just when I was thinking about packing them up you discovered all their glory.  Sure makes diaper and clothing changes much quieter.  

You love giving us kisses, the mouth wide open kind.  I guess the puckering of the lips is a hard thing to learn at this age, which is okay by all three of us who can't seem to get enough of them!

And of course the same day Lorelei turned 10 months old, our not-so-baby-girl turned 47 months.  31 days (17 now) away from turning 4. Gosh 4 sounds so old (relatively).  Just a year and half left before "real" school.  
After taking pictures of the two of them, I got the ole "Mom I'm done taking pictures."  And begging and pleading proved unsuccessful.  I'll have to hold Disneyland over her head at next month's photo shoot.

Happy 10 months! It's funny how much of the same stuff they are doing. And for someone who didn't want to be in the photos she sure does look cute. And I know it's 2 months away but we definitely need to make sure to get a photo of the 2 babies together at 1.

I can't believe she is going to be 1 so soon. And 4 is right around the corner. Those are great photos of the two of them! Thanks for the update.
