On a Scale of 1-10...This Girl Is a 10!!!

That's right, Punkin Head turned 10 months old this week! What a sad, sad day.....well, not really. It's a great thing for baby...a sad day for Mommy though? Definitely! My little girl is growing up right before my very eyes. Of course it doesn't help that she also started WALKING! Yes, walking! All by herself...with no help from Mommy or Daddy or living room furniture. I knew it was only a matter of time. She could have started walking a month ago if she really wanted but the confidence wasn't there. She would take no more than 2 steps then safely sit her cute little diapered bottom on the floor (which is kind of weird considering she has no problem doing acrobats over the baby gates, or gymnastics off of the coffee table). But last night I was sitting with her on the floor and having her walk around using my arm as a crutch. Next thing I know, I let go and she made the 7 long steps over to Daddy on the couch. But it didn't stop there, oh no! She turned right around and walked BACK to me! I was so excited I almost cried. But I'm not sure whether my tears would have been tears of joy or sadness at the thought of my baby getting all that freedom. What's next??? Pretty soon she'll be wanting to get her driver's license then never coming home! Okay, I'm getting a little carried away so I will stop there. Her other recent milestones include talking EVEN MORE, clapping and saying "yay!" and giving kisses when she sees you hurt (she accidentally head butted daddy this morning and when he said "oww!" she kept trying to give him kisses and even bonked her own head on purpose...so cute!!!). Also, she is drinking out of a cup a lot more. But she does good with regular cups and cups with straws...not so much with the sippy. It's funny because after she takes a drink she goes "ahhh", haha...love it! Here are some images...WARNING: PICTURE OVERLOAD AHEAD!


Having some fun with a little whipped cream!
