10 Months Old

I can’t believe it.  Our baby is ten months old.  Ten months is only two months away from a year; from no longer being a baby but a toddler.  WTF.  She has become such a little person since I last wrote.  She is so full of life and has such a dynamic personality – full of funny faces, sticking her tongue out and crawling all over the place.  Pulling herself up chanting “mama” all the time – everything is “mama” — the couch, the walls, her sister, etc.  She says it all the time but I’m not convinced she’s directing it at me just yet.  Does this count as a first word? I have no idea.  She is a very vocal baby, though.  I’m pretty sure once she starts she’s never gonna stop.  (“We caaaaan’t stop, we woooon’t stop…”)

The last couple of months have been filled with milestones for Katherine.  Crawling, two teeth (and about a million more ready to break  through), pulling herself up, big girl baths, first plane ride, eating tons of solid foods.  She loves just about everything we put in front of her and I’m pretty sure she’d graze 24 hours a day if we let her.  Last night she had tilapia for the first time and loved it.  Like, whatever – being all grown up with your taste buds.

First time at the beach.

We just returned home from Michigan about a week ago – my sister graduated magna cum laude from Eastern Michigan University so Katherine and I ventured out to the mitten for a couple of weeks to celebrate.  We had a blast and she was a total rock star on the plane, I shit you not.  I was so, so nervous about flying alone with an infant but she just kicked ass.  She either slept or played with her Mortimer Moose or made friends with the people sitting around us.  We were truly blessed with awesome fellow passengers – we ended up next to a grandma, a full-time nanny, a man with a daughter a few months older than Baby Girl, and on one flight we even ended up with a row to ourselves!

Next up on my list is planning her first birthday party.  I can’t believe how quickly it’s come around.  I feel like I’ve become such a cliche since having a child;  time goes by in a blink.  It seems like yesterday I peed on a stick; hell, it seems like yesterday Corey and I went on our first date.  And here we are, 4.5 years later with a house, two kids and a dog.  It’s insane.  Anywho…birthday party.  I’ve been browsing invitation designs on Shutterfly and hope to get them ordered sometime this week.  So that’s my next big to-do.

Hope you all are well; I promise promise to be better about writing  from now on.  xoxo!
