10 Months {Gwyneth}

Gwyneth you are 10 months old today.
You weight 16.5 lbs and wear 9 month size clothes.

You’ve decided you want to be independent this month. You enjoy being alone and can entertain yourself amongst your toys for a pretty long time. Daddy and I get pretty bored sometimes when we try and play with you and you’d prefer to go off and play alone.
And then there was the day you ate a graham cracker and decided you were all grown up and would be feeding yourself from that moment forward. Somewhere in that head of yours you decided that  not only would we not spoon feed you, but you would not be eating anymore baby food either. You didn’t eat anything but milk for a week after that.

All you wanted were graham crackers and cheerios, two things you weren’t ready to eat seeing as you choked on them every time. Instead you ate dissolvable snacks and within weeks you have become quite skilled at picking up food and getting it in your mouth. You’ve sped up significantly and can put away quite a few little snacks in one sitting.

We’ve tried to give you new foods to try, all of which you touch with a look of complete disgust until you venture to put it up to your mouth. You will pretend to try it and decide you don’t like it. So far the only things you like are the fruit flavored cheerio dissolvable snacks and the cheeto looking puffs. This really upsets your parents who were trying to feed you homemade all-natural baby food!
At the beginning of the month you could standup by yourself and slowly get around furniture. In the middle of the month you not only caught speed moving around furniture, but you began pushing things around on the floor while standing up (chairs, boxes, etc.) Mommy got you a toy that you push. It goes super fast on the hardwood floors but you jog along behind it as if it’s not a problem. Occasionally you will let go of something you were using to brace yourself and not realize you’re standing by yourself. You stand fine until you realize what’s going on and immediately grab on to something or fall to the floor.
You like to giggle and laugh with Mommy or Daddy and you picked up on an evil laugh (muhahaha). You like to do it whenever you can. Nothing is cuter than a 10-month-old baby maniacally laughing as she plays with her toys. 
You’re moments away from walking, eating finger foods all by yourself and growing like a weed. It’s amazing to watch your mind expand and develop and see you absorb your surroundings. You’re such a joy and a constant source of happiness in this house. We love you!
