ten months



Ella Bella Boo turned 10 months yesterday, yikes... one is just around the bend! She is changing so much right now, it's very fun to watch. Just today I noticed she has cut FOUR new teeth bringing the grand total to NINE. Watch out kids she may not be fast but she has a nice set of chompers if she chooses to use them. Notice I said she may not be fast, but as of yesterday she is MOBILE! She is a butt scooter and backwards slider. We should have seen the butt scooting coming given her love of shakin' it. See the video post from earlier today. She is devouring any food we put in front of her. She particularly loves grabbing whole rolls and mulching them up.

One of the most "aww" things she has picked up is her new bff "bear-bear" who she squeals in delight when she sees and holds all night long. Hubs put her to bed without bear-bear the other night and oh she was heartbroken. She has been playing model this past month for a local mom's etsy shop. She is a great sport about it generally, although red hats make her cry. Again, see the video post to see how much she loves bear bear.

She is still huge, other babies her same age are much smaller. She is wearing 18m and 24m clothes. Ella Bella Chunka Monka indeed. She was 22lbs 9 oz and 29.5inch at her checkup last month, judging by the pile of clothes that don't fit... she has gotten longer since then.

Current raves:
-fresh peas and roasted carrots
-peeking under and over her bumper at moo across their room.
-being naked
-eating any fun thing off the floor
-music with a beat
-digging through boxes and baskets
-bath time, again naked
-trees in the wind
-talking baby talk with you

Current I'd rather not and ummmm nooooooooo:
-being buckled in her carseat
-having anything eaten off the floor being scraped out of her mouth
-not having our full attention
-waiting for her food to be made
-sharing with moo
-sippy cups, that would be a NO WAY
-standing, walking, crawling on all floors... she screams when you try.
