What?! 10 months old?!

I know, I know, I say this every month, but where has the time gone? September was super busy and flew by. Caroline and I took a trip to MS to visit family, I squeezed in a trip to New Orleans to see one of my friends get married (Amy was a beautiful bride!!), and we've done a little work around the house and yard (it only took us a year!). Caroline is doing great! She has quite the personality and a fantastic smile. We can finally spend some time outside since it's not a million degrees. We had a great time play and scoping out the park for her (insert long dramatic pause here) 1st BIRTHDAY PARTY. It's right around the corner and will be here before we know it. Here are her monthly facts:

*She has started eating "big girl food" for some meals...favorites include green beans, corn, grapes, and chicken nuggets. We're also giving her little tastes of what we're eating. She was a big fan of Margarita pizza last night!

*She has started giving me hugs! Love, love, love when she leans in and grabs me around the neck (she's been doing it to her stuffed animals--she LOVES stuffed animals--but no living beings have got the honor until recently).

*She has a favorite word, and it is "uh oh". Throw your sippy cup down...uh oh. Throw your paci down...uh oh. Throw your bottle down...uh oh. I'm trying to teach her that you don't say "uh oh" when it's on purpose! :-)

*She is saying "mama" on a regular basis. Best word ever!!

*She is walking with her push toy.

*I've started putting shoes on her to try and get ready for cold weather and *gulp* "real" walking.

*At Gymboree, she will wave and clap along with the songs we sing.

*She has 5 teeth now...2 on top and 3 on the botom.

*She loves Gerber veggie sticks and YoBaby yogurt.

*She weighs 18.4 pounds (she didn't gain her usual pound this month--she was eating less because she was sick with another ear infection/cold and teething).

*She pulls her bows out almost as soon as I put them in--it drives me crazy! And reaches up to pull at her hair just in case I snuck one in.

*She can empty out a drawer, cabinet, or diaper bag faster than you can believe!

*She will shake her head "no", smiling the whole time. Is this a sign of what's to come??

Blueberries are yummy!

I can feed myself!




OMG I have been waiting for this post. She and Luke are a match made in heaven with the "uh oh!"... he also likes to throw things and say it. I am constantly telling him that it isn't "uh oh" when you do it on purpose : ) Loved the pumpkin patch pics, did you take them yourself? What kind of camera do you have?


love them all but the one on the porch is the best! :)
