My 10 Month Old!

Our little 10 month old "baby" girl has been so busy this past month!

She can really crawl (like in a Speedy Gonzales kind of way), she can also pull up to stand with the assistance of anything (other small children, my leg, my hair, things that can not support her weight, etc.) and is already starting to cruise. So basically nothing is safe in our house.

She was granted one tooth (bottom right). That was fun!

She became officially to long for her little car seat, so we've moved up!

She eats 3 (very slow, messy) meals a day. She only wants to feed herself. She'll spit out any food you might try to sneak in her mouth to speed this process up.

Loves a sippy cup. But if she's not really thirsty, she'll just lay in the floor, suck and let it run out of her mouth to soak herself and said flooring underneath!

She still wants to nurse about 3 times a day and once at night.

She is wearing mostly 9 month clothes with some 6 and 12 months outfits thrown in.

She is still a complete mama's girl. She still only says "mama" but has a couple other sounds that are often heard. ("Baba" "Dada" - neither in reference to anything or anyone)

She needs two naps a day to be happy. And for mommy's sanity.

She gives the best hugs in the whole wide world!

She loves to pull my hair out in fistfuls, watch Baby Neptune, "help" anyone do almost anything, the puppies, taking a bath, reading books and playing with our floor vents when the air is on.

She is still a very happy baby! Smiling, laughing and making faces all the time. I'm so proud to be her mommy!

Happy early Valentine's Day for our little cupid!

Snow Day!

Well... Blizzard 2011 is among us (or was... depending on when you're reading this).

(notice the super appropriate pjs she's wearing)

With over a foot of snow, the dogs won't even think of going outside (really, I think they've decided to wait until summer). I really don't blame them either!

I'm ready for a vacation to a warm, sunny beach... who's with me!

Well, I guess we can just settle for some cute pictures!

This is the new position Ellis does most of her sleeping in! She will literally just be playing away in her crib and then fall over asleep.

Just a cute picture of her watching her favorite Baby Einstein video, Baby Neptune!

Apparently snow makes me a little domestic. I made baby cereal pancakes for E's breakfast this morning. Get the recipe here. And bonus, the recipe makes a bunch, so you can freeze the rest for quick meals later!

One way to measure the height of a snow drift!

Watching Daddy shovel the driveway!

Hope everyone stays warm and dry!
