10 months!

This little cutie is 10 months!

She loves the water!  I can't wait to get her in the lake.  We were out there to help my parents put the dock in last weekend but the water was too cold for babies. 

Still no teeth...

She's starting to crawl.  Not very well, but she can and does a few "steps" from time to time.

Rolling is still her preferred method of movement. 

Her bald spot is completely growing over.  Not so visible anymore.

She has more babble conversations.  Mat loves to have conversations which mostly consist of "hey!"

She's starting to use her circus tent more.  For a while there it was just where all the toys went after bed time.

It seems that some of the raspberries that we planted last spring may have survived!  Woot!

After my failing to weed in my oh-so-pregnant state the whole garden became overrun with burs. Ouch!  So once when the trash fire blew over, Mat let it burn out part of the garden to get rid of them. That meant my raspberries :(. But some survived!

Beautiful day!

We didn't get to spend too much time outside because I had to work. But hopefully after dinner we can go back out. :)

Sundaes on Sundays!

Its a tradition. It dates back a few years when I got the golden ticket of all coupons- an unlimited BOGO on blizzards from Dairy Queen. We drove past a DQ every Sunday after church so we always got blizzards. Thus the birth of Sundaes on Sundays. 

Since we've moved up here it's normally an at home thing in non-summer months, but today was our first time taking Daughter to the drive in for ice cream!

She loved it!  I love our family tradition :)

And we have Honeycrisp!

The Honeycrisp Apple tree is starting to bud!

And the Ure pears are still looking great!

In a few years, we should have apples and pears up the wazoo :)

9 month pumpkin!

Mama made me a tutu!

She's 9 months old!

She rolls like there's no tomorrow.  Almost-sort-of-not-quite crawling... She'll roll herself between her jumper and the kitchen peninsula and then start to fuss that she can't get out.  Dr Lucy said that we should give her more floor time and she'll figure out the crawling thing.

She now says "mama"!  Her favorite word is still "dada" though.

She giggles a lot more now.

She's very into textures.  She pets things... like the church door....

She almost always just eats some of what we're eating.  We just cut it up really small.

She went to the optometrist this week to check on her watering left eye.  Everything looked good!  The Dr. said she did very well.

Over the past couple days she's hit the 9 month growth spurt hard.  Hopefully she'll be done soon!
