Ten Months Update

Kaylynn is now well into her tenth month.  She loves to pull herself up and cruise around the furniture and especially Desmond’s train table where she promptly starts “deconstruction.”  She can crawl on all fours now and even get herself up the stairs (with supervision). 

She’s still quite vocal and you never have to wonder how she’s feeling.  She has started to talk and her most popular word is “ba-ba” which she uses for banana, bye-bye, and baby.  She also says “hi” when we come into her room to get her up from a nap.  She can say “ma-ma” and “da-da” sometimes, but not consistently enough to call it.

Kaylynn is still a bit finicky with food and I feel I’m constantly trying to offer her different things to get her to eat.  Just because she pushes something away doesn’t mean her tummy is full.  She still has strong preferences when it comes to eating and it’s not always easy to discern what will work.

She has a few more teeth coming in soon though who knows how long it will take for them to break through.  She also had a stomach bug last Sunday, but thankfully it was basically a one day thing.

She’s sleeping through the night more consistently now.  (Oh, thank goodness!)  And the norm is two 1- to 2-hour naps during the day.

Kaylynn likes to play with Desmond’s cars and sometimes it even sounds like she’s making car noises.  She consistently reaches for the pink hummer whenever it’s in the pile.  A preference for pink already?  That’s amazing how early it can develop.

I just can’t get over how cute she is, and I’m having fun thinking about her first birthday in about six weeks.
