Lila turned 10 months old yesterday! This month has been a very busy one for her and she reached many milestones all at one time like she was trying to cross them all off the list!
Lila’s Time Capsule:
-Lila has a great appetite. She has picked up on eating finger foods quickly this month. Now in addition to her favorites of mashed peas and squash, she also enjoys bananas, pancakes, strawberries, blueberries, and of course PUFFS!
-We have been introducing sign language to Lila when she is eating and she has started copying us when we say “All done!” or “More”. She has even self-initiated them on occasion! It’s really neat to see her communicate in a new way! 🙂
-When she is feeling playful, Lila likes to clap ever so gently. It’s adorable.
-She also loves to wave hello and good-bye to people…including herself in the mirror!
-Lila’s babbling has increased a bit. I use the term babbling very loosely because I wouldn’t say she is a chatterbox, but when she does talk it is in the softest, sweetest, breathy little voice. She says bababa and dadadada (this one is generally in reference to the dogs!).
-On the day she turned 10 months, we got slammed with a giant blizzard so Lila got a real doozy of a first snow. Let’s just say she was not a fan.
-She did much better the next day when the winds and snow had stopped. Strapped into the Ergo with Mommy, she went to her first block party at the ice bar our neighbors carved out of a snow bank.
-Lila is really good at crawling now and we are having to watch her closely so she doesn’t get into any trouble 😉
-She’s also begun pulling up to a standing position and loves to play at her activity table.
-Lila loves to play with a big pile of toys surrounding her!
-Lila has three teeth on the bottom and her two top teeth are poking through this month.
-Lately, she has shown a growing in interest in books and especially likes books that are interactive with flaps or fuzzy parts to touch.
-Even her laugh is laid back. She has a slow little ”ha ha, ha ha” when she thinks something is funny. Best word for it is a baby chuckle.
We just love her to pieces!!
