Alexis at 10 Months

Dear Alexis,

It’s unreal to me that you’re already at the double digit of months. By the end of this month you will have spent more time in our new home than in the apartment we lived in when we brought you home to from the hospital. Unreal.

Your hair is starting to get so long

You’re crawling now. You’ve been able to move yourself small distances for a while. When you wanted to get somewhere, you’d flatten out onto your belly and flail your arms and legs with the most excited squeal. But you’d move! Not far, but you’d still move! We used to refer to it as ‘the fish’. Then, last Thursday, you started army crawling small distance. By Sunday you were army crawling where ever you wanted, including to objects you could pull up on. Monday you threw a ball and chased after it!

Mommy needs to up her ball game now, things around here are about to get more challenging!

You’re also walking with assistance. You take the most dramatic steps, it’s adorable! You’re not cruising yet, but you’re close. You’re starting to shuffle your feet when you’re standing. I predict you’ll be walking right around the time of your first birthday, just like your big sister.

And are you a champion eater! You were doing so well with your purees and yogurts that we decided to start you on table food beyond just cheerios. You haven’t met the table food yet that you will not eat! Food you don’t like, sure, but not food that you won’t eat. (You weren’t a fan of my white sharp cheddar macaroni & cheese, but you didn’t let that stop you from eating it!)

I know I say this every month, but I am having such a hard time accepting how fast time is flying. I still think of you as my itty bitty baby, and now you’re mobile and eating dinner with the rest of us! You also have a few new teeth on the horizon. A corner of tooth #3 is in, and tooth #4 seems like it will soon follow. We’re starting to hear the beginnings of a few words. You wave bye, clap and high five. You are so eager to catch up to your bigger sister and leave babyhood behind you. I just have to buckle up for the ride.

Love Always,
Mommy & Daddy
