Norah turned ten months old yesterday. How is that possible?
We are nearing the big number one, and it will be here before I know it. I ordered invitations for her birthday party and ordered an adorable little birthday outfit on Etsy this week. I hope to set up her one year photos sometime soon. I can’t believe it.
I am not as sappy or sentimental about it as I thought I’d be though. She is becoming so much fun with such a little personality, and I think that is overshadowing the fact that she is soon to be a toddler.
This month was full of lots of moving. Cruising is now her preferred mode of transportation, and she is a fast little crawler, too. We also got teeth! Three have broken the surface a bit – one on the bottom and two on the top. I’m pretty sure that other bottom one is soon to follow, and she is copying big brother’s teething pattern which is to cut a handful of teeth at once. We are beginning to occasionally hear what sounds like real words, too. She has been saying “mama” and “dada” for a while now, but she erupted a loud and clear “yay!” in music class last week right after we all sang the same word. She also lies on our dog and pulls his ears and laughs and repeatedly says “duh-duh” – which I really can’t tell if it’s “dog-dog” or his name “Tucker.” Either way, it is her name for him and she repeats it often.
She is such a fun little lady who is equal parts curious and laid-back. It’s been a great few weeks!
