TEN Months...

Ten Months.


It's here. Double digits. Two whole hands.

Londyn Grace is ten months old!

What a month it's been for
this little lady!

Weighing in at 17 pounds 5 ounces, LG is starting to chub up a bit! She is wearing mostly 9 month clothes (though I have trouble finding that size at most stores. They seem to jump from 6 to 12 months and we are too big for 6 and too small for 12!) She is measuring 28 inches long.

Our biggest accomplishment this month happened when she finally figured out how to crawl! It started as a half crawl/half scoot as she would drag one leg behind her, but each day she is getting a little faster and has pretty much mastered moving on all fours without dragging her leg! The morning after she started crawling she woke up, rolled right over on her belly and sat straight up in bed like a big girl!

With this new found mobility, someone is all over the place and into EVERYTHING!!!

She has discovered the electrical outlets (hello, baby proofing!) how to dump the trashcan in her nursery, and figured out how to mess in just about anything she's not supposed to mess in! She is one busy girl! We are working hard on teaching her boundaries and the meaning of the word no. She definitely doesn't like correction, and gets her feelings hurt easily, but it is important she learns early what she should and shouldn't do/touch!

Within the last week, she has started pulling up on everything! She loves to stand! She is now taking assisted steps and will "walk" holding our hands! Unfortunately, this new pulling up thing also resulted in her first bruise! :(

Goosey is loving food these days! She had her first taste of meat this month and loved it. She hasn't really turned down anything we've given her! She gets so excited when she sees us eating! 
I can't give her bites fast enough! 

We've made sharing pancakes a morning ritual! She also shares her Pop Pop's love of Cheerios! The other night, we went out for frozen yogurt and it was a HUGE hit! Daddy was sweet enough to share his since it was much healthier than Mama's chocolate covered cookie dough filled peanut butter dessert! ;)

She is loving all these new tastes and textures, but her favorite by far  is still  her beloved milky! {I am SO thankful that today marks 10 months of nursing!! We had so many moments in those early days where I wondered if we would ever make it through our first month let alone ten months!} LG nurses every 3-3.5 hours or pretty much whenever she's hungry or wants a snack!

She is so silly and is laughing so much more these days! It is the sweetest sound! She loves to play peek a boo and wave good morning to the baby in the mirror! Clapping is her new favorite past time making "If You're Happy and You Know It" her favorite song that Mama sings to her and "Pat a Cake" her favorite game to play with Daddy!

She now does a hand gesture (sort of like a backwards wave) and says "Na-na-na" when expressing want for something! She is saying Dada and Mama with distinction. Lovey Lou can make quite the array of faces most of which include sticking out her tongue! This month she has also mastered blowing raspberries!

Londyn Grace pulled her first all nighter a few weeks ago due to her top front teeth working their way through. (They still haven't cut through, but you can see them trying to!) She cried from11 pm to 6 am and even nursing, which typically fixes anything, didn't help her. Finally a few Hyland's teething tablets did the trick! Since then she's back to sleeping normally with only one wake up. Some nights she is still starting in her crib while other nights she just snuggles in with us when she goes to sleep. I miss her when she's in her nursery and don't sleep well unless she's cuddled up next to me!

I think she is gradually turning her two-three short naps a day into one-two longer naps. We've had a few two hour stretches which is a new thing for us!

Other firsts this month include celebrating her first Fourth of July, and being dedicated to the Lord!

She is so friendly and generally a happy, smiley and sweet baby!! We can't go out to eat or to the store without being stopped by someone who says how pretty she is!

Her only dislikes include clothes and diaper changes and not being near Mama!

The last ten months have been the best. Ever. Londyn girl is such a precious gift! The Lord is good! I will never be able to thank Him enough!
