10 Months Young

Today is Ellie's 10 month birthday, and it was a pretty monumental day for her. I went in get her up this morning and found her like this.

{mad because I went and got my camera instead of getting her up}

Sitting up in the crib means standing up in the crib won't be far behind, so it's finally time to remove the mobile and lower the mattress. Check.

She discovered the dog's water dishes (oh joy) a few days ago, but today she learned she can get to them from anywhere in the house, even if it means going under the kitchen table.

And today, for the first time, she came to find me after I disappeared around a corner.

She hasn't quite figured out that step yet, but as quickly as she picked up her other new crawling skills this can't be far behind.

And it seems today she's decided she's a belly sleeper, although it looks kind of like she just collapsed this way from her new sitting position.

I can't believe I have a 10 month old.

Your best post to date.... Love the pictures and your descriptions.

I had to laugh at the picture of Ellie in the diaper sleeping... I left Dacia in just a diaper to nap while we were in CA. It was too hot for clothes (parents ac broke). Well my dad went to check on her to find her naked playing with a pee soaked diaper :) From now on, I will at least put the little bloomer things from dresses on her.

Oh, she does look like she just collapsed from sitting up. Too cute!

Your daughter is adorable. I came to your blog through Day By Day. What a wonderful way to track Ellie's milestones. Who needs babybooks these days?! This is much better.
