10.5 Month Update!

Well, yesterday was an exciting day! After a few days of thumb sucking (new) and extra clingy-ness, mama finally saw another tooth popping through! Yay. So that makes 5. and I think number 6 (and more!) are on their way. Looks like her 1 year molars might be starting up as well. Might be a loooong couple of months!

For awhile now, I've been wondering if C really knew the baby sign for "more". Yesterday a friend confirmed it- she also thought she was signing it! The sign is similar to clapping, so i had been thinking she was sort of clapping for herself. But, she just watched Baby Signing Time again(i let her watch it during those clingy teething days!!) and then the next day she was doing it! I realized that she only does this type of clapping or whatever when she is eating, so it is definitely a sign! yay! I'll try to capture it on video.

She's also putting more and more effort into talking! It's so cute. Sometimes she imitates us really well.Me: "C, say, 'book!'"
C: "Boo!!"

Other times, it goes more like this.
Me: "C, say, 'Ball'!"
C: "djo!"

(which reminds me of the Friends Episode, "The One Where Joey Speaks French" )
She also does this little gremlin type voice when she's excited. It's super cute, but also kind of weird. :)
Finally, she's also started cruising a bit. Mostly, it's only a step or two. But, she is definitely much less timid at her play table lately! And she climbs on more objects than me and B. Yesterday, she pulled up on her baby gate (AKA my sanity saver!)

Is she not the cutest thing EVER? I know, I know, she is. :)

In other news...

C cruised today! She's been getting slightly less scared of standing & holding an object (she's actually standing with objects other than me!) and has even pulled herself up to her playtable on her own a few times! Today, she cruised from one side of it to the other (motivated by trying to reach a basket of laundry, of course!) Very exciting to see her gain courage!

She's eating like a champ, but is a mystery sometimes- Today, wouldn't pick up carrots, but if i fed them to her off a spoon, she would eat them! There are many of these funny little quirks that change day to day with her eating... I wonder who she got these quirks from? :)

She still LOVES to swing, and I'm itching to get one at our house set up for her, she loves it so much! I think we will have to head to the park today! We went to the park on Saturday and met another baby her age- she LOVED sitting next to the little girl and exchanging toys back and forth. I'm looking forward to a lot of fun park days this summer! (also, love that the local parks for me, are on the OCEAN! How cool is that? :)

Poor B is still recovering from getting his wisdom teeth out, so he's on the same sort of diet as C!
Hopefully he will be feeling better soon!!

This is from our Family 5 Miler we did the day before Mother's Day. I'll spare you the one of me crossing the finish line, but there is one the photographer snapped of the three of us!

This is a picture filled post! Here are some of the other pictures I considered for my contest entry. I ultimately went with the one in the post below because of her expression. Some of these pictures are definitely more "Yellow" though, so it was tough! I love this yellow hat, I'm sure we will be seeing many more pictures all summer long!

May 24th- I Heart Faces- Yellow!

This is my entry to this week's I heart faces Contest (http://iheartfaces.blogspot.com/). The theme is yellow... What do you think? :)
