Kate: 10 Months Old!

Our little bitty princess is TEN MONTHS OLD! Double digit months and only two more months until she's a year. It's just all going too fast and I don't care how many times I say that. She has grown so much but is still such a little baby at the same time. Each month gets sweeter with this girl and we love her more everyday. 

She weighs around 17 pounds and is now 27 inches long! She has graduated to size 2 diapers finally. She is wearing mostly 6 month clothes and some 6-12. And it's almost time to spice up the Fall wardrobe! I'm going to miss those sweet summer rompers though. 

Kate is officially crawling and moving all over the place. She's a wild little thing and doesn't like to sit still much these days. She's getting fast and especially loves it when Will chases her around the house. It took her no time at all to figure out how to crawl everywhere. About two weeks ago, she figure out how to stand in her crib and was so proud of herself she couldn't stand it. It's so much fun to watch them learn new things and show so much pride while doing so. 

Miss Kate is full of tricks! She claps, still shakes her head and smacks her little lips in the cutest way possible. Her wave most of the time is her hand opening and closing and it's my favorite thing ever. She has started pointing to things lately which is so cute. Her tiny voice is starting to develop and she's making more and more sounds each day. She especially loves to blow through her mouth and make the littlest whistling sounds! She says "da-da" when she sees Mark so we are claiming that as her first word. 

Mealtime has gotten messier these days as we have started her on more soft finger foods. She usually gets a puree with each meal but she's dong so well chewing on small pieces of roasted vegetables, fruits and even some meat! She loves meatballs and roasted chicken and has honestly eaten everything she's ever tried. 

Kate is loving books more now than she ever has. She sits in our laps and looks at the pictures and takes it all in while making happy noises and laughing. Her favorite book right now is a board book called Little Fish with an orange fish puppet that pokes through a hole on each page. She laughs so hard when you make the fish move. She doesn't discriminate when it comes to books though because when Will gets his daily morning story with Daddy, she is crawling up to them on the couch scooting in to join. 

Also...when you show up at the playground in the same romper as one of your baby BFFs!? All the heart eyes. 

My mom recently brought over my American Girl Doll and Bitty Baby to store for Kate to enjoy someday. I was curious how Kate would react to the baby doll and she went NUTS! I ask her where her baby is and she starts kicking and laughing and immediately kisses the baby's face. 

Aside from her own toys, her favorite toys are anything that Will is playing with! She's become especially fond of the Paw Patroller.

I never want to forget all of these little things. Like the way she buries her head in my chest when she gets embarassed. Or the way she goes crazy when Mark walks through the door. She looks at her big brother with the most loving look I have ever seen in my life, next to the way she gazes at me as she dozes off to sleep as I rock her each night. She has the same little nose as Will that scrunches up when she over-smiles or knows that she just did something cute. She has a big personality in a tiny package and it's so much fun to watch her turn into this amazing person. 

We love you so much, baby Kate and we can't believe how fast your first year is happening. This time last year we were weeks away from meeting you yet it's hard to believe how we ever lived without you.

Happy 10 months, Princess Kate!
