10 Months

It kind of seems like the only time that I blog now is for Averie's little updates. At least I am blogging I guess! She is afterall the center of our lives. Today our little monkey turns 10 months!
She is getting so close to a year and I can't believe it.

Averie has grown quite a bit this past month. Here are her stats:
Weight: 19.4 lbs

She is already wearing 12 months size clothes and I am pretty sure she is not going to fit into her cute 12 month dress on her birthday that I bought her a year ago! Oh well, I guess we will just have to do some shopping!

This month as I mentioned before, Averie started crawling! Yay, or nay? With her new mobility she has started following me everywhere. I laugh because the dog and the cat follow me everywhere already. The three amigos I guess. Sometimes I forget that she is crawling and it freaks me out when I have something pulling on my pant legs. Here she is on the bathroom floor nekkid because I was getting her bath ready and she followed me in.
She LOVES her "puppy". Best Friends!
She is so flexible. She must get that from her daddy. He is the only man I have met that can do the splits. Crazy!Here she is being "naughty" in the cat food. Crap, I didn't even think about that.
She is really stating the understand that the other baby in the mirror is her! Such a cutie!
She claps about over everything now. Happy or sad. It is her way to express her joy or the start of her temper tantrums. Silly girl.

Her hair is so funny. It is the oddest lenghts all over her head. She has some hair that is super long on top, but it is pretty short where it has started to fill in. Some day her hair will be "normal".

Averie is not really that close to walking, but she can hold herself up standing. She takes huge steps when I hold her fingers and walk with her. It is pretty funny to watch.

We decided to move the crib down when we realized she could do this

I have been finding her in the craziest positions in her crib.
I don't know how this can be comfortable.

Whenever I take her out, everyone always comments that she has the biggest brown eyes they have ever seen. I think her cousin, Caleb, can contend with her.
Here she is just sitting on Caleb. It was so funny and sad at the same time. Caleb was crying and Averie was just like, "What?"

Averie has been sooo sick for sooo long. We call her our "Petri Dish". Poor thing has been through a week of long fevers, teething, pink eye, and now she has a horrible cough and is so hoarse. It is pretty adorable to hear that sad little hoarse cry. I hope she gets better soon.
You can tell she is starting to get pink eye here.

She has 4 teeth so far, but I have spotted one more on its way in.
She still says Mamma, Dadda, Pappa (sometimes).
She loves music and always starts dancing when a song comes on she likes.
She is getting much more snuggly and always wants to be held.
She loves anything and everything you put in her mouth. She is such a good eater.

We love this girl so much! Happy 10 months little one!

I still can't believe how beautiful she is. Her little face is so sweet! I am so sorry she's been sick. My little one has been really sick too, for about 3 weeks now! It's been awful. Teething doesn't help either, that can make them feel really crummy. I hope you guys are doing good!
P.S. You take really great pictures :-)

She is gorgeous! She is so fun and has such a sweet personality. I can't get enough of her! And I love her little Hawaii dress :)
