10 months

WHAT?! 10 months already??
17 pounds and about 28 inches long.

She's officially "a walker."  She now prefers walking to crawling. The only time she crawls now is when she wants to get to something REALLY fast, like when she gets out of her gate and tries to hurry to the stairs before I can get her.

Oh and the gate doesn't hold her in anymore. It was previously used as a doggy gate so it doesn't latch to the wall. She just pushes it with all her might and moves it out of the way.  The last few days have been hard to get any work done that's for sure!
Still no teeth! And I'm happy I didn't have to deal with biting while nursing. Since we leave to Costa Rica today, I'm done nursing! It's a bitter sweet thing... definitely would have gone all 12 months but pumping 3-4 times a day while on vacation doesn't sound do-able so we're just ending 2 months sooner than planned.  I loved every minute of it and look forward to next time!

13 days without Claire. I don't know if I'll be able to make it 2 DAYS. It will certainly be fun, and needed, but come on!!! I am going to miss this little munchkin like CRAZY!!

She says "dadda" and "babba," grunts "UH!" and yells.  She makes elephant noises, blows spit bubbles, and sticks her tongue out all day long.

She LOVES her pointer fingers. They are always out. It's how she waves hello--she points at you! Everyone jokes that it's the new thing, touching pointer finger to pointer finger to say hi instead of a shake, five or knucks.

By the way, this is Kraig's b-day cake. Isn't it AWESOME! We used the same lady that did Anna's zebra wedding cake. And I actually re-did her blog/website. Check her out! She's AMAZING.

She is going to be an acrobat. She loves doing flips or swinging upside down with daddy. 

Loves it outside and could be out all day.

Takes 2 naps a day (a one-hour and a two-hour) and still sleeps 12 hours straight at night.

She's still the happiest, smiliest, sweetest baby alive. I don't even remember the last time she fussed. She lays down to nap and bed without a peep, gets up talking or babbling, and loves people.  We are so blessed to be her parents.

Have fun with your grandma's baby! We will miss you terribly.

Holy Smokes! She's not wasting any time :) Were still waiting for Brooklyn to sit up on her own haha She is so cute! I'm sure that will be hard leaving her for that long, but I bet the break will be nice! Has she always been good at taking a bottle or did have to ween her before your trip? Hope you guys have a ton of fun!

Her cute little tongue makes me laugh. She has such a fun personality. I'm so impressed with her walking skills. They get so big so fast, huh?

10 months already- goes by fast! She's adorable! Have so much fun in Costa Rica!! You will have lots more fun not pumping 3-4 times a day for sure! I have had a hard time nursing so I'm pumping now and it's tough when you're out and about! Can't wait to hear all about your vacation!
