Emily - 10 Months

My sweet baby, you are 10 months old!  Where is the time going?!  I will say that you are becoming more of a mommy's girl every's probably because you hardly ever leave my side!  I will definitely cherish each moment that you reach out for me, or lay your little head on my chest, or give me a super-tight hug (your specialty!) because I know you won't be this little forever.

This month:

Your top tooth finally broke through!
You started shaking your head "no"
You love it when I pat my hand in front of your mouth while you say "ahhh" (making "Indian noises")...sometimes you even try to do it to yourself and it is so.cute.
You started self-feeding with finger foods
You love watching cartoons, like Strawberry Shortcake, Super Why, and Dinosaur Train
You absolutely love watching videos of smile so big and make happy noises   : )
You really don't like getting in the car seat anymore
You have started bouncing up and down to music
You will now pick up a comb and try to comb your own hair! (Instead of what you previously did: wave it around or stick it in your mouth, haha)
You celebrated Mommy's birthday!  (You got me an awesome present (with the help of Daddy) - a cotton candy maker!  Boy will we have fun with that!)
You are trying to say more words:  There is a picture of Grandma & Grandpa we look at and practice labeling every day, and you said "Amma...Pa..."  the other day by yourself!  Woo hoo!  You also repeated the word "apple" in one of your books.  My smart girl!

I love you Emily!!  I am so lucky to be able to stay home with you every day, teaching you, loving on you, and watching you grow into this sweet, smart little girl.   : )
