Letters to Lily: Ten Months

Dear Lily,

This was the best picture I could get of you for your ten month shoot! You are a busy little girl so as soon as I sat you on the bed you would turn around and start climbing on the pillows. I eventually resorted to distracting you with a toy which enabled me to get a single picture of you looking at the camera. Unfortunately your toy was hiding your ten month sticker but hey, I'll take it.

You learned to say your first word this month! Was it Mama? or Dada? Nope, it was "No!" You always say it very exaggeratedly and emphatically. Pretty sure you learned that one from your sister... or from me saying it to your sister. You also say "go" (from hearing Let It Go constantly) and "woah."

You're not quite ready to walk yet. You can stand alone for a few seconds but I'm not sure if you'll be walking by your first birthday. That's fine, though. There's no rush. You won't seem as much like a baby anymore once you're walking and I want you to be a baby for as long as possible!

You have four teeth at the moment- your front top and bottom teeth. Your little smiles are so adorably toothy right now!

Your favorite activity is pushing buttons (mostly literally but sometimes figuratively.) So you're always turning off the computer and turning on and off the Xbox, This mainly bothers Eve as you usually do it when she's playing a computer game or watching a movie on the TV.

You are still the biggest floor grazer! Somehow you find the smallest things on the floor and put them straight into your mouth. I don't even know how you see them! So most of my day still revolves around fishing things out of your mouth. You especially love to "eat" your sister's Shopkins (tiny shopping toys.) This is not well received by Eve.

You're still not the best sleeper. You almost always wake up once or twice a night but you will take an hour and a half long nap every now and then. So that's a small victory!

I love you so much, baby girl! The best parts of my day are when I'm holding you before I put you down to sleep. You're all relaxed and you babble to me in a really soft voice. It's the sweetest thing.

I'm so excited to watch you grow and develop more and more of your cute personality!
