10 months old
I am the mother of a 10 month old baby girl. I can't believe that in a short two months she will be one!
A lot has changed since her 9 month old update. If you missed it, you can read it here. Just before Christmas she finally got the hang of conventional crawling. We have had such a great time watching her explore the world. When she was not crawling I could leave the room for a quick moment without worrying that she would get into some mischief. Those days are long gone! Now I can't even turn my head for a moment.
The most exciting milestone of this month is that... Naomi is WALKING!!! She is still a little wobbly, but she can take numerous steps on her own between people. She has even ventured into the middle of the living room from the couch. I am so afraid that she is going to fall down and really hurt herself. I am trying to watch her all the time, but she has bumped her head a few times.
All day long Naomi pulls herself up on the furniture, gains her balance, and then lets go, goes for a walk, falls down and then tries again. It won't be long until she will walking without a problem. Ron and I are SO proud of her!
"To laugh often and much, to win
the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false
friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, or a garden patch... to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This
is to have succeeded!" - Emerson
