is starting to walk! Taking as many as seven steps at a time but is definitely still predominantly a crawler. (Sidge was walking by this point exclusively. Isaac was just starting and Abigail was about 2 months away.)
will bend down to pick something up and stand up again.
can stand unassisted for minutes at a time.
has six teeth.
has her "pincher" grasp perfected.
is no longer eating baby food, but she has gotten into those squeezable baby foods when we are "on the go."
is not so good at getting changed -- diaper changes could go better. She is a roller.
Isn't saying any words yet but babbling quite a bit.
is signing all done and milk. Working on night-night and about to start please and more.
doesn't have any stranger anxiety yet!
doesn't want to be read to. Just wants to grab and destroy any book left in her grasp.
puts everything in her mouth.
is all over the place in the bathtub -- laying, crawling, standing, etc.
Loves to play with the blinds and pull them off one by one.
Is drinking about 4, eight ounce bottles a day.
adores her big sister.
will begin "dancing" if you sing to her or if she sees music.
loves walks in the stroller.
has the most amazing blue eyes I have ever seen (tied with Sidge!)
is incredibly ticklish everywhere.
loves to play in the kids' dishes cabinet.
is a very fast crawler!
uses a pacifier at bedtimes and sometimes in the car.
starts bouncing her feet around if you sing to her.
is taking two naps (early morning from about 8-10 and late afternoon from about 1:30-3:30p). Goes to bed at night around 7pm and is out until around 6:00am. (If we are lucky!)
doesn't usually cry when she goes down for a nap; sometimes wakes up happy and sometimes wakes up crying.
Here is a look back at her siblings when they were ten months old:
