Ten Month Old on our Hands!

*head nod yes ALL the time... it is so hilarious... you nod at people on the tv or in the grocery store when they say "yes" or "yeah"
*standing in your crib and jumping/bouncing up and down giggling the whole time or saying "wooahhh woahhhh"
*"wooooooah" at everything
*pointing: absolute cutest thing I've ever seen- as you say "woahhhh" you point with your index finger and your thumb
*"wiggle wiggle wiggle" so adorable--your tongue is so heavy when you say it
*you let go of whatever you're standing up on and free stand
*on 12.20.14 you took your first "step".. and did it a few times..
*"thank you".. in a cute little squeaky high pitched voice
*signing "more"
*I say, "give me kiss" and you lean in with your mouth wide open and "kiss" me...
*you lean on us (put your head into our shoulders) to give us love
*when you are ready for milk to crawl up to me from wherever you are :)
*you like to climb up and down things... you can crawl up Gammie and Gampie's stairs
* you do this "woooooo" surprise face where you do your lips in an o shape and make a dramatic sound.. ha
*No more baby food.... the doctor gave us the okay at your 9 mo appointment when i told him you were refusing it... some of your favorite foods now are peas and carrots, mac and cheese (although we have had to limit it lately because you've had some stomach issues), peaches, baked sweet potatoes, veggie soup, spaghetti os, chicken noodle soup, yogurt melts, still love puffs, ritz, vanilla wafers, muffins, eggos, toast, scrambled eggs, grilled cheese, apple sauce, honey nut cheerios... and almost anything we are willing to feed you
*we are pretty sure (and so are both of your gmas) that anything we say you repeat it back.  It is hilarious!!! but we will not swear by it for now.. although I think it usually sounds just like whatever we say!
*you would rather yank your socks off and eat your toes than have them on
*you dance anytime you hear music & clap when you hear anyone anywhere say yay or hear someone else clapping
*you love the clothes dryer
*obsessed with getting in the refrigerator
*your wingspan is unreal--you can reach so high or so far back on tables..
*you eat everything.. leaves, toilet paper, fuzz...anything you can get your little fingers on
*you love to turn light switches on/off
*you also love to open and close doors (at the bottom) and go in a room to hide from us :)

What Else?!
*you sleep from 7:45/8-5/5:30.. I feed you and then you usually sleep until about 7:15!.. the past week has been kind of rough.. you've been waking up a LOT and usually around 12:30 and 3:30.. and it takes you for-ev-er to go back to sleep..
*for about two weeks you were on a kick of taking 2 2 hour naps... now you're back to 2 1 hour naps.. :)
*there have been a few days you have rebelled against taking a nap (agh),
*your hair is SO curly.  It is even starting to curl on top!
*still size 4 diapers...we are using pampers baby dry since you potty so much during the night :0
*12m clothes are getting too short but we are wearing them as long as possible!

Fun Stuff we've done this month:
*we went to the church Christmas program on Dec. 7--you LOVED it.. you stood on your daddy's lap the whole time we were there and pointed, said woooah, and clapped :)

*we drove you around the square in Fayetteville and you were amazed at the lights!

*The next week (on daddy's birthday) went back to the square and you LOVED the lights.. it was so fun to watch you point and get so excited at them.  so much innocence.  You also met SANTA..hahhaa.. i tried to hide you from him as long as i could while we were in line, but as soon as i sat you in his lap and you looked up and saw his beard you were screaming! so cute, though. I loved it!

*I bought some bath drops to change the color of your bath water and you were amazed... We also got some "mr. bubble" and you just tried to eat the bubbles the whole bath time.

*We went to Jonesboro to celebrate Christmas with Tone Tone, aunt wendi, uncle britt, pete, brody, and brennan. It was so fun that you could actually jump in the middle of all the fun and play with the boys this time! You were mesmerized with Brennan.  It was so fun to see you enjoying "opening presents", too.  We went to Papaw's in Marvell on Sunday and you and Brennan had fun on the swing together! :)))

*Your friend Claire Curtis was born last month! she is adorable! I can't wait for you girls to get to play together! :))

*On November 30 we participated in baby dedication at church.  We love our church and are so thankful for all of the people there who promise to pray for you and walk with you (and us) through each season of life.  We thank the Lord for you.. your ten little fingers and toes, your nose, your curly hair, your blue eyes, your fun personality, your health, and just your existence... You are His-we are just thankful we get to be the ones to take care of you here on earth.  We love you, Millie!

*We celebrated your daddy's 33rd birthday!  It was so fun having you here... we painted him a canvas that said "happy birthday daddy" (that didn't go as well as planned..haha.. you just wanted to eat the paint) and made him a photo book of pics of you the past few months!

(this was mine and aunt wendi's bow when we were little :))
