10 Months

Well we're in the double digits! So hard to believe that I need to start planning their 1st birthday party...where is the time going?!

So far I think this is my favorite age! The girls are becoming more independent and have a great time playing with each other. My favorite thing is when they are on opposite sides of the room, make eye contact with each other, then crawl as fast as they can over to their sissy, all while cracking up like it's the funniest thing on earth! I can't imagine them not having each other. They already have a bond at a mere 10 months old.

They crawl everywhere and anywhere. If there's something to pull up on, they pull up on it. Emmy can hold herself up standing for a few seconds before sitting back down, and Cate can walk with a walker! They both LOVE to wave! Me, Brian and the girls will just wave at each other for like 5 minutes. The girls get a kick out of it! They also imitate us blowing raspberries. They say "dada" and "baba" ALL the time....but still no "mama." :(

Eating has become more of a challenge. I think I have to let go of purees because they are pretty much over being spoon fed. In one way this is easier, another way it's more of a pain (mainly to clean up). They eat a lot of table food now. They pretty much eat what Brian and I eat for dinner. They like meatloaf and mashed potatoes, cherrios, tortellini, steamed broccoli, cheese and of course puffs. And of course they are still getting their bottles of pumped breastmilk.

Catherine is working on her 7TH tooth and Emily is working on her 5th!!! This has equaled some sleepless nights unfortunately. Emily *always* sleeps through the night, but it's hit or miss with Catherine lately. When she does wake up though, it's very easy to get her back to sleep. All I have to do is give her her paci and rub her butt for a few minutes and she's back out.

Well I think that's it for this month! I'm excited to get the girls out more as the weather gets better - we have plans to go to our first horse show this Friday!
