10 MonthsPosted: September 18, 2011
I keep trying to tell myself that this isn’t right, there is no way my little girl is 10 months old. However, she keeps showing me that she is definitely growing up. This month has been kind of a big one in the fact that she started walking!!! Kylee has been reaching her milestones a little early since the beginning, but I really didn’t think she would be walking at 9 months. But she hit 9 months, started out by standing and then just started taking off. She is doing really awesome too! She will walk all the way across a room like she’s been doing it for a while. Every once in a while she will lose balance and topple down, but she has picked it up SO fast.
Other little things that she has started doing this month… she FINALLY started feeding herself with her fingers. She learned how to clap and that just brings the biggest smile to her face. With the confidence that she gained in walking and pushing her lion, she now thinks she needs to push EVERYTHING, even things that don’t move that well she still tries to push them around. She’s learning that she can communicate without crying, so when she doesn’t want something she will just push it away with her hand. I’m learning very quickly that you never think of these kinds of things as feats until you have a child of your own.
One thing that we LOVE to do is chase Kylee! We will say “I’m gunna get you” and she just takes off crawling. She loves doing this and will just giggle the whole time she’s crawling away. She’s gotten so fast too. She also thinks it’s fun to throw things now. The other day she threw the remotes and hit Miss with it. Those two are almost inseparable now though. Kylee loves to give her puppy hugs and Miss is usually right there by Kylee.
When I took Kylee in for her checkup last month she had some spots on her; several on her leg and one on her face. The doctor said it is a virus that is kind of like a wart called moluscum contagiosum. She said it will go away on it’s own but it does spread, so we need to give her showers until they go away completely. So now instead of her bath before bedtime, she gets a shower before bedtime and she has grown to LOVE the shower. She has so much more room and crawls all over the shower after her toys. I take my showers in the morning, so Kyle is the one that bathes with her. It has grown to be one of my most favorite times because I love seeing those two have their own thing. It always puts a smile on my face too because when both of them are all washed off Kyle will just sit down and play with her and it melts my heart every night.
Well, I guess I’ll wrap it up and give you what you really want, the pictures… It was a little bit tricky this time because it has been raining EVERY day! So Kylee got to pull out her fall clothes for this photo shoot.
