Grace is really enjoying playing volleyball. I am going to have to figure out the camera settings to get good photos! I played with it some this weekend, but never really got any good pics. She has an amazing coach who is teaching her how to play. I really appreciate that more after seeing some teams we have played against. It is nice to have someone knowledgeable about the game and determined to TEACH the girls!
Week 45. Getting her to sit still and let me take a picture where she is actually looking at me is impossible! Our days have turned into a blur of trying to get the dog bowls (fun to play in the water), try to get into the bathroom (she can unroll a roll of toilet paper quickly), and getting into the plants. Along the way she will try to smash her fingers in the kitchen cabinets! She definitely keeps me busy! I have started feeding her more regular food instead of baby food. She loves string cheese!
Week 44. I have got to get back on track with this! Things have just been extremely crazy lately. This was her first kids meal. We went to Panera and grilled cheese and yogurt are some of her favorite things! She enjoyed eating the butter packets most of all though! ha!
I cannot believe she is 10 months old. Grace started walking on the day she turned 10 months, and I really thought C was going to be walking by now, but she is not. And thats ok. I think she could if she wanted to. She will let go while she is standing up, and she has fallen on her rear end a few times, so she has decided that letting go is just not for her! ha! She is cruising. She will walk all over the place as long as her hand is touching something. She is not sleeping all that well for some reason. It is worse than when she was a newborn. I feel like I am in a fog most of the time. She is starting to eat more food. I have started pureeing less and less and giving her cut up food to eat. She feels like a big girl! She is drinking more and more out of a sippy cup also. She has not figured out how to climb the stairs yet. I am very thankful for that! She never was much of a snuggler, but as she gets older she appreciates "snuggle up" more and more. She gives kisses that are wet and slobbery and wonderful! I am just very thankful I have the opportunity to stay home and be a mommy ~ it is the best job ever!
The snow was not so great when we were driving home from Oklahoma City yesterday, but is kind of nice while home today. Carolina loved it as long as someone was holding her. I sat her on a towel so she could touch it, it was too cold. She crawled out into it, and that was really bad! She is a Southern girl ~ snow is pretty to look at, but too cold to be in!
Ok. It's Monday. We were in Oklahoma City this weekend and to spend two nights in hotel with an almost 10 month old you have to pack half of your house. Friday was nuts trying to pack everything and not forget anything and I didn't get any pictures taken. The above pic is from Saturday and she was quite done with volleyball for the day! ha! We did stay in a hotel that was attached to the convention center where the tournament was held so that made things so much easier. We could also walk to the restaurant and did not get into our car the whole time we were there! She will be 10 months in 2 days, I will have a better post with cute pics then!
