Oh my word, did I really just type 10 months?
Mini turns 10 months old today, I can’t believe it. The photo shoot with the sign might not happen this month, friends. But I did take this photo last week:
I’m a bit more detailed in this post than I usually am, but if you make it to the end, there’s more pictures to see. I’ve been slacking in showing off my Mini pics this month, it seems.
She is doing all kinds of fun and exciting things right now, like:
*cruising around furniture
*swaying back and forth to music (from the first measure of a song, which is so cute)
*walking with help, pushing all kinds of things around. Including my rolley chair!
*giggling (the belly laughs come once or twice a day, but she is such a giggler at times!)
*sneaking into the diaper bag and pulling out the Cheerios container
*climbing up stairs
*climbing into the dishwasher
*dropping things onto the floor – See Mommy pick it up. Again and again! Fun, fun, fun!
*some sign language (just repeating what I do but with her own style. You should see her “all done” – it’s like “heh, whatever”)
*doing the motions to songs. She waits for me to get to the “clap your hands” when I sing If You’re Happy And You Know It...
BRAG ALERT, BEEP BEEP: I can tell she’s going to be a great student of all my songs with motions. I have quite the repertoire, too.
*waves to herself in the mirror and says “ohhhhh”
*I love her crawl. It’s a thump, thump, thump crawl. Other than that, she’s extremely quiet when she’s en route to her destination.
Probably not a good omen.
*She’s pretty quiet overall, except for when she’s screaming her head off. Say, for instance, when she needs a diaper change. She does not enjoy lying down for the extended period of time that it takes me to snap, miss a snap, and re-snap Carters pajamas.
But I need her to lie down, I tell her.
SCREAM! TWIST! SCREAM! GYMNAST FLOOR EXERCISE YOGA TWIST SPLIT THING! SCREAM!
(A baby lotion bottle, the sound of crinkly grocery bags and a firm no sometimes help distract her. But let me say, diaper changing isn’t my favorite activity, although she does impress me with her agility. Can’t wait for the chance to do this in the airplane lavatory this week!)
Oh wait, crutches.
Can’t wait for Mike to have the chance to do this in the airplane lavatory this week.
Maybe we’ll just dress her like this:
She seems to like it.
Somebody needs to come up with a funny caption for the bagel picture. I’m fresh out of funny right now.
But I’m filled up with love for my baby girl. Who is growing too fast out of the baby stage. Love you, Mini.
