10 months

Alabama turned ten months old the day after Christmas. The same day my sister, Audra , turned 20! I can't believe in just two months (less now!) she will be a year old. I've been thinking a lot lately about her birthday party and I can't wait. I want it to be fun for her and a memorable experience for us!

Alabama, here are some things you're doing now at ten months...
You are still such a sweet, happy baby! You are always so good, even when you're sick.
You weigh 19 lbs. 8 oz.
You are still in size 3 diapers.
You wear mostly size 9 month clothes but some 12 months for the length as you're getting so tall! My little string bean!
You love to play with all your toys. You love your piano and also MY piano! ha
You have so many "tricks" that you do for us now! It's soo fun to watch you!
- You Praise the Lord by raising both hands straight in the air! So cute!
- and Love your baby when you hug your dolls and animals and pat and rock them.
Such a sweet girl!
- and of course clap, wave to us, and sometimes give us hugs.
You eat a lot of different things. You LOVE to eat whatever we're eating. You still eat some baby foods, but love table food more. You love green beans, bread, macaroni, sweet potatoes, cake, cookies, applesauce, and potatoes. You make a funny noise to let us know when you want!
You pull up on everything but are still not walking.
You love to get into all of my things. Any cabinet, drawer, or cubby hole that you can find, you're in it! You're also constantly on the move. No sitting still for you!
We love it when you dance when you hear music playing! It's so cute!
You have two little teeth on the bottom now!
You climb on everything and aren't afraid of anything!

You're still the social butterfly who loves to look at everyone in the stores and restaurants and LOVES to be with other kids. You get so excited and love for Jenna to carry you around like you're her big baby doll! It's so funny to watch.

You "talk" to us a lot. You say da-da, ma-ma, hey, and a lot of other things we have no idea what you're saying. Sometimes it will sound just like a word like audra or yeah but I'm not sure if it's really a word for you.

You're still a Mama's Girl and I wouldn't want it any other way!

I love you more than life itself and thank God for such a wonderful baby!

  1. She sure is getting big! You'll be chasing her around the Sanctuary before you know it.
