10 Months...

Another month has come and gone...I can't believe Miss Lucy is 10 months old! I'm going to blink and have a ONE year old! This past month was so much fun...

Lucy's biggest achievement/milestone this month....CRAWLING! Lucy officially became a crawler on August 3rd (9 1/2 months old). She just randomly started crawling (in full force) that scooting or army crawling for this girl. She went straight to normal crawling...and she hasn't looked back since! Our days are now filled with chasing sister girl around the house....and we love it!

Lucy loves standing up, walking behind her walker and walking alongside the couch and ottoman. Her favorite toy is her music table because she can stand up and play at the same time! She's also a big fan of standing in front of the living room windows so she can watch Chloe and Kaci while they're outside. She bangs on the window and window sill trying to get their attention. She can stand on her own for a few seconds and has taken a couple of accidental steps (into our arms).

She finally figured out how to drink from her sippy cup this month (at lunch on July 31st). She was so excited that water actually came out of that was so cute! Now she loves her sippy cup!

Lucy's sleep schedule has not changed. She's still sleeping at night from 8pm - 7:30am and taking 2 1.5 hour naps during the day (10-11:30am and 2:30-4pm). We had to move her mattress down in her crib a few weeks ago because she started pulling herself up on the railings.

She is still eating 4 times a day (breakfast at 7:30am, lunch at 11:30am, afternoon bottle at 4pm and dinner between 6:30 and 7pm) and eating a lot more solids, especially at lunch and dinner. She'll eat pretty much anything we put in front of her! She does the sign for "all done" all of the time, but I'm not sure if she really knows what it means quite yet. We've starting working on the sign for "more."

Lucy is wearing size 12-18 month clothes and size 3 diapers. She has this adorable little freckle on her left thigh that appeared this month. Her hair is still coming in fast and turning a strawberry blond color. No new teeth popped through this month...she still has 2 on bottom and 3 on top.

She waves all of the time and has started saying "hi", which I guess we can officially count as her first word!

Lucy has thrown a few of her first "fits" lately, which is a little scary and a quick reminder that we can't do this whole parenting thing without God's direction....and grace.

Happy 10 months baby girl! Our love for you is endless....truly impossible to describe. We are so blessed by your presence in our lives and thank God everyday for YOU!!
