9 and 10 months

Since I was not able to post about your 9 month separately we will combine the two months in one post. :) It has been a busy few months around here but fun all at the same time.

Here are a few highlights from October and November...

* Your first tooth has popped through, you haven't had many symptoms but seem to be chewing on everything and fuss from time to time. 

*You went on your first plane ride to New York and was able to meet the captain! You did wonderful on the flight and loved to looked out the windows and play peek a boo with Uncle Nick and Lindsey. 

*In New York you were so good. It was cold and windy so we layered you up and we carried you in the Ergo the whole time. At night when we would get home we would take all your clothes off and you would get so happy, start laughing and flap your arms around. :) By the end I could tell you were ready to come home and get back into your routine, and to be honest I was too. Its true what they say... New York never sleeps... and we didn't! ;) 

You are to much fun! 

Our first day. We went to American Girl Doll and you picked out your very own bitty baby. :) 

Carriage ride through central park... you slept the whole time. 


*When we got back from our trip it was time for Halloween and you dressed as a COW... mooo! You were the cutest little thing and even made it on the news! 
Trick or Treating on the square. 

Mama made your Cow outfit. First outfit I ever made... not to shabby.

You and your Nina!

*By November you started to CRAWL!!! One day you were playing in your room and I put the baby doll that your Mom G gave you on the ground, you wanted it so bad you crawled over to it. I freaked out, got your daddy to come in the room and we recorded you.... so sweet! 

*Your 2nd tooth has popped through making your smile OH SO SWEET! 

*Nina pampered her girls one night and got out the foot massager, you got your first pedicure... without the polish. We will save that for another time. :) 

*You are starting to realize how cute you are and will squint your eyes at us... oh my heart! You also started to dance. Aunt Mattie was dancing for you (a regular occurrence) and you started raising your shoulders up and down. 

*We took you to Radnor Lake to look at all the beautiful trees. You loved playing in the leaves. I think it wore you out though because you fell asleep while Nina was carrying you in the Ergo. :) 

*We went to Papa and Gigis to help decorate their Christmas Tree. You were so cute with your cousins... precious memories! The next week we went to Nina and Poppy's to decorate their tree and you fell asleep and missed out, but when you woke up you loved looking at the colored lights. 

*You got to experience your first snow! We were decorating the house for Christmas and the most beautiful snow started falling. I got you dressed and took you out to snap a picture. :) You were not sure what to think and did not want to touch it. 

*Mommy had a hair appointment so you stayed with Nina... we were apart for 2 1/2 hours!! The longest yet! Oh and you did great no crying at all. :) 

* You celebrated your 1st THANKSGIVING! We went to Mawmaw's and PawPaw's first for lunch then we headed out to Gatlinburg for the rest of the week. (Hopefully a separate post)

*You started giving kisses. You will either stay really still when we say kiss kiss or you will come towards us with your mouth open. It is seriously so cute! :) 

*You started to stand and balance on your own. We can not believe it! Such good balance. Wondering what this next month will bring. 

*You got your Santa pictures and was not so sure about him.  Right before we went in I got you to say HOHOHO... thankfully I got it on video. :) 

*You are still nursing and only eating one bite, if that of food. We have tried just about everything but you prefer mamas milk. 

*Your NAPS are getting longer!! Praise the Lord! I think it is because you are so BUSY! Most days, I let you have free reign over your room since you can't get break or get into anything that would be bad. :) 

* You JUST started to play peek a boo by yourself... so cute!  

Here are a few extra photos from the past few months... :)
