10 Months

Hard to believe this little blessing has been in our lives for 10 months already. Everyday I am amazed at how much she has grown and all the things she's learning to do daily. From her serious stares, to her giggles, and her funny little crawl to her fly away hair - she's a beautiful little girl, inside and out!

At 10 months, this little one weighed in at 24 lbs and 13 oz and is 29 1/2 inches long. To celebrate her birthday, she got a new tooth... that's 7 if you are trying to keep up. She has 4 on the top and 3 on the bottom.

And she likes to use those teeth - Apples aren't part of her normal diet (at least not in this form, yet) - but if you'll let her try to sink her teeth in them, she will! But since we've pretty much dumped the baby food - she's a trooper and will eat almost anything. Actually there isn't a solid food I've introduced to her that she's refused yet. Green beans are a little iffy - but they are stringy by nature and can make her gag a bit. Her favorite food.... maybe a toss up between carrots and black beans.
My little sweet pea is still a mommy's girl - and I have to admit, I eat it up. It can be exhausting, but she's such a little snugglebug that it's hard to NOT enjoy it too. I know that this too is just a stage and one day she'll be saying, "stop kissing me mommy, that's gross." So for today - I'll kiss her, hug her and remind her what a wonderful creation she is and how blessed we are that God let us be her parents!

Here's a little reminder of big sister Megan when she was 10 months old.

It's so funny to go back and look at Megan's baby book to see what she was doing at this age - Nicole outweighs her at 10 months by 4 lbs and 1 1/4 inches. And I know that outfit that Megan is wearing is a 12 month outfit, however Nicole is currently wearing 18-24 month clothes. At this age, Megan only had 2 teeth to Nicole's 7. It is a clear picture that God creates each of us to be our own unique person. I can't wait to see how Nicole will grow into her personality.

And a note on hair.... people keep asking us if we think Nicole will have curly hair like Megan. As the picture above shows - at 10 months, Megan didn't have curly hair. Nicole's hair is actually longer than Megan's was and when it's wet, it does have curl. Megan's curls really didn't come out till after her 1st birthday - so... we'll see.
