for Katie, that is. It's hard to believe that in 2 short months, she is going to be 1! It seems like she was just born.
This past month was a time of many milestones for Katie. I love this age. She is so much fun and really starting to "talk" and interact with us, especially Michael. Katie learns something new every day and she is looking more like a toddler and less like a baby to me now.
Katie now has 4 teeth in less than one month. She has the front two bottom ones and then the top 2 lateral incisors. The front 2 top teeth are bulging under the surface but haven't emerged yet. It's kind of cute to see her smile as 2 of the teeth are pretty hidden. She is eating everything and has quite an appetite. We went to Todd's office on Tuesday for lunch and she ate a bit of my taco, trying to take a huge bite out of it. It was pretty funny!
She started army crawling the day after Christmas. Over the next 2 weeks, she learned how to sit back up from her stomach, crawl on her hands and knees, pull up to her feet on the couch or a person and can now cruise. It's like everything that had to do with movement clicked all at once. On Thursday, she actually went up the bottom 2 steps on the stairs using the railing. That was a little unnerving, as it means nowhere is safe to leave her. I see her thinking about letting go of what she is holding on to and standing by herself!
Katie's talks to just about everyone that she knows and is getting a bit more generous with her smiles. She loves to laugh at Michael as he does the most entertaining things to her and it's just a deep, rich laugh. She has started pointing at things that she wants, which is so cute.
I can't wait to see what this next month brings. Katie gets more and more fun the older she gets. I also have to start thinking about what to do for her birthday. I have a few ideas in mind!
Here is Katie at 10 months:
