ten-and-a-half months

Our Little Lady has been ten months old for a little while now.
I always procrastinate on these posts
because they seems to sum up her brilliant little personality so dimly.
But here goes.

Right now Sweet Pea...

has discovered that she can turn the pages in books
(and naturally likes the paper ones better than the safe board ones)
loves to be in the middle of what her brothers are doing
(trains? cars? tools? blocks? bring it.)
makes anything into a drum
is almost obsessed with the fridge magnets

can get from lying down to sitting up all by herself
still isn't crawling but scoots rapidly around on her bottom
(she looks a bit  like a frog
as she propels herself around with little bent legs)
is enjoying exploring the house
(cabinets, closets, the rooms upstairs--nothing she can reach is safe)
is trying to pull herself up to standing

says "da-da" all the time and "daddy" occasionally
says "hi" and "hey"
says something that sounds like brother
waves goodbye
tries to sing along with music
is learning a few signs (mostly "more")
screeches like a velociraptor but not usually because she's upset

finally has a little tooth
and is working on a second
has decided that pureed foods are beneath her dignity
loves picking up finger foods and feeding herself
is drinking from a sippy cup
eats a lot
yet still manages to be in the1st percentile for weight

has been moved out of The Nook into her own room
is doing quite well with the change
(nap times have been a little harder since it's a noisier room,
but nights are going much better
now that we're not waking each other up)
