Olivia {10 Months}

There is something about a baby turning 10 months that seems like a big deal. 
One seems SO close once you get into the month double digits...
I should probably get on planning this 1st birthday. I think I'm avoiding...
 The months seem to be blurring together a bit, and I have to look back on each previous month to see what happened that month vs. this month.
I guess that's why I do these...because if I can't even remember right now what happens month to month, I for sure won't remember in the years to come.

It was a big month for teeth, and all four of Livvie's lateral incisors broke through shortly after turning 9 months. I thought this might improve sleep at night, and it did for the first two weeks of 9 months. The time change did wonders for her, and she even slept until 5am a few times without waking. But these last 2 weeks have been rough, and she has actually been waking twice - around 2am and then again around 4am. Ugh.
Naps are still the same - morning nap around 9:30am-11am and afternoon nap around 2pm-3:30pm. Bedtime still around 7pm and wakes around 6am.

Livvie's personality shows more and more, and she continues to be extremely vocal. She says mama, dada, la-la, bah-bah, nah-nah, yah-yah, hi-ya, and probably more that I can't think of. I took her to my little college reunion lunch the other weekend, and she was probably the loudest one at the table.

She's also a climber and her new thing is crawling up on Jack's pottery barn anything chair, and standing on the arm of the chair while holding onto his crib. She thinks she's so cool when she does it, too...
While so agile...she is so timid about walking. She can stand unassisted now for pretty much any length of time and will pull herself to a stand from the ground without using anything to help her. But she will only take ONE step, and then will fall right to the ground and crawl the rest of the way. We are working on it though, and I think in the next week or two it will finally click. 

She's still a picky eater and prefers to nurse over anything. I'm about to call it quits with the purees because I think she just wants to be a big girl and feed herself. 
 We love you, our Livvie Lou!
