Lilly is 10 Months Old...

Sweet Lil,

You are TEN months old now! Here's what you have been up to...

You celebrated your FIRST Christmas this month. It was so fun to start new traditions with you and to see your reaction to all of the lights and celebrations. Daddy read the Christmas story, from Luke 2, to you while I rocked you to sleep on Christmas Eve. I can't wait to initiate even more traditions as you grow and begin to grasp the true meaning of Christmas.

You are pulling up on everything! I get so tickled at you because every morning when I go into your room to get you out of your crib, you are standing up waving at me! You are still sleeping so well. You usually go to bed between 6:30 and 7 every night, and you wake up around 7 in the morning. You take at least one good nap during the day, too.

You still have NO teeth, but your are drooling like crazy. I'm thinking they are not too far away.

We have started introducing table foods more frequently, and you are really enjoying them. You love macaroni noodles, pancakes, turkey, peaches, and baked potato. I have been considering taking your bottle away, but I don't think we are going to make any drastic changes until you are a year old. I just love feeding you your night time bottle and rocking you to sleep at night. I'm not ready to give that up just yet.

You are talking up a storm. You can say Mama, Dada, and bye bye. You are VERY good at waving at every one and telling them bye.

You rang in your first new year (at 6:00, of course) and loved looking at the fireworks that Daddy bought.

We love you more today than we ever though possible! Can't wait for next month!
