Another month has flown by! Even though I hate how fast the time goes, it is so much fun to see more and more of your silly and sweet little personality come out!
You've developed a mega-watt grin, complete with a crinkled nose, and sound effect (which is a mixture between a pant and a hiss). You do it when you're really excited about something- whenever you see food coming your way, when daddy gets home from work, and when you hug your favorite toys...
Although you are not quite walking yet, as predicted, you are very close. Nowadays, when you're not able to cruise around furniture, you crawl more like a gorilla than a human baby...
I seriously believe that walking would take less effort, but you seem to like traveling around this way. I like it because it keeps your clothes clean, especially when we're outside... You've also just started to stand on your own. One of the first times you did this was when we were at the Arboretum. Jax and I were holding your hands and then let go and you stood all by yourself for several seconds!
Jackson had to tell everyone that we passed, "My baby sister can even stand all by herself now!!" He is such a proud big brother!
Unfortunately, it has been a little bit of a rough month. Not only is teething in full effect, you have been battling an ear infection and cold.
When I brought you in to the doctor, I thought for sure that you had pink eye because you woke up with your eyes completely crusted shut. It turns out, it was just from your extreme congestion. The doctor checked your ears and said they were on the verge of being infected so he prescribed an antibiotic right away (I was so thankful). After a few days, your crusty eyes cleared up and you seemed much happier.
Finally, this month we celebrated your baptism. You were the only one being baptized that day, so you had your own little private ceremony while daddy, Jackson, and I watched. Your godmother (Aunty Nicole) and godfather (Uncle Sam), Great-Grandma Idell, Grammy Ginny, Grammy Mary, Papa Tom, Uncle Tim, Aunty Selina, and cousin Bradley were there to celebrate with you, too! You looked like such a little angel that morning in your gown (which was the same gown Aunty Nicole and I wore for our baptisms).
Happy 10 months, sweetheart!
