10 months!

dear nora,
happy 10 month birthday! i can't believe that you are in the double-digit-months now.  it is only a matter of time before my little teeny baby is a one year old.  i can't even think about that... it makes me sad, but at the same time...i've been busy planning your party! this past month has been nothing short of fun!  i love being home with you and spending our days together.  you have become quite the little mama's girl.  you shy away from anyone that isn't me..even your dad, grandparents, & uncles.  you are constantly clinging onto my legs and resist being held by anyone but me.  eventually you warm up to others and are oh so much fun!  

you grew another little chomper--#3 on the bottom.  you've been eating ALL real food more purees.  if we try and give you a pureed food, you will take it out of your mouth and try to feed it to yourself. gross.  or swat the spoon out of our hands.  gross.  

you are on.  the.  movie.  you crawl everywhere and always want to be moving.  you will walk with your walker and cruise along the couches or tables.  i feel like it's only a matter of time before you start walking, but i really think you can wait awhile for that--i'm not ready :) 

you are SUCH a talker... so much to say, but no "real" words yet other than mama and dada. sometimes you'll say "baba" when you see your bottle.  i thought i heard you repeat "byebye" when we were waving to dad one morning, but you haven't said it again.  the screeching continues, along with screaming and constant babbles.  i wonder what you would say if you could talk... 

your favorite things still remain the dog,  your blankie, and any toy that makes really loud obnoxious music.  you will dance to this music any time you hear it and it is the cutest thing i've ever seen!  you will even dance if i sing to you or you hear music on the radio.  one day we were at the pool having our snack during adult break and you heard country music on the speakers and started dancing.  the other kids around us thought it was funny, too :) 

we went to the doctor this month and you weigh 17lbs 13oz (35th%ile) and are 27 and 1/4 inches tall.  no shots this time around, thank goodness.  you are growing into this little lady and it is so neat to watch it happen every day.  each morning i look at you and see you getting bigger and bigger.  you look older to me, too.  your hair has grown and we wear bows every day.  it is so blonde and you have these beautiful blue eyes still.  everyone always comments how blue they are!  

i saw this tshirt the other day that says "mama's bestie" on it... i think i need to buy that for you.  will you always stay my little bestie?! love you, pookie.


(your hair looks kinda strawberry blonde in these photos, but it is sooo blonde in real life...)
look at that toothy grin :)

always on the move...
 and what it's really like trying to take your picture...
