10 Months!

I missed 9 months because....well I don't know why.  But here is a perfect picture of a 9 month old little girl who has no fear and a love for adventure

And just like that she is 10 months old!  I cannot believe our sweet little girl is getting so big!  She has quite the personality, she is independent and she loves to climb, bounce and swing.  She is fearless and loves when her Daddy puts her on his shoulders or when her Uncle Ben does the 'roller coaster'.  She eats all food as long as it's not puréed baby food and is so proud when she can feed herself (and the dog).  She crawls when there is nothing available to assist in walking and would rather play with tupperware than any of her toys. 

Sweet girl you are such a joy!  We love you and we are so blessed to have you call us mama and dada.

Chinese Checkers

When we are at my parents house we play Chinese Checkers.  It doesn't matter who is there or what time of day - we play and it is serious.  But it doesn't get much better than early morning games with this light and these competitors.

Someone makes up his own rules which currently includes spinning the board around half way through the game.

And his little sister - well she knows she is loved and so safe in her mama's arms, so she will sit and watch (a breakfast break is an added bonus).
