Abigail is 10 months old!

Audrey loved picking the little flowers :)



Double! I cannot stress enough how fast this is going by. I'm sad...I really miss the quiet, cuddly newborn days. Abigail is all over the place and less and less like a baby each day. As I type this I have another window up for Evite (party save-the-date), Pinterest (party planning), and yet another for Shutterfly (birthday invitations). Sigh.

She's a crazy-fast crawler. She's pulling up on everything now. For the longest time she would pull up but not be able to get herself back down. In fact, we had to stop putting socks on her (and footed PJs) because her feet would slide apart and she'd be doing the splits, lol. I love to walk into her room and find her standing, just grinning from ear to ear! I had a dream the other night that she let go of the table and started walking around. I remember being so happy but thinking, "Hey, when did you take your first steps?!" Another sign that this is happening way too fast :(

Crazy hair!

That's better!


Her hair is getting so long! It's starting to curl up in the back :)

She's cutting more teeth, I think on the top. She will absolutely not let us check so it's very hard to tell. For the past week she's had an awful diaper rash. I went to pick up the prescription diaper cream the pedi called in and it was $300! Needless to say we tried Triple Paste instead. That didn't rally work so the pedi called in a different ointment that we mixed with Desitin. It's lightening up a bit, but her bum is so red and every time she poops it seems to get worse. I'm going to take her to the dr if it doesn't get better in a few days. During diaper changes she grabs at it and I know it has to hurt :(

She mimics us if we make a sound such as blowing raspberries, sticking out our tongue, or making popping sounds. She says lots of consonant-sounds. She claps a lot and is waving again. She has the sweetest laugh and brightest smile. She's a lot less clingy, unless she tired or hungry she does great playing by herself. She loves all the toys Audrey used to play with- blocks, books, pretty much anything!

Her eating and sleeping habits haven't changed. She sleeps like it's her job! Loves to sleep in on the weekend and takes wonderful naps. Both girls are flexible enough that I can usually get them to take a nap at the same time in the afternoon (so nice when that happens!)

I ordered Audrey a new car seat so that Abigail could have the Coccoro. I'm waiting on the 2nd new car seat to arrive for Christopher's truck. Even though she's in her infant carrier, I've been taking her out of it when we go to dance and grocery shopping so she can get used to being "free." One good thing about having such a mild winter :) It's been pretty easy getting around with 2 by myself. Audrey likes to push Abigail in the stroller which is great because I can keep ahold of them both at the same time.

Our darling girl is getting so big and it's been so incredible to go through these milestones again. I just wish it wasn't happening so fast! I wonder when she'll take those first steps? Audrey was just shy of being 11 months in this video. I really cannot wait until Summer when I get to enjoy her all day, everyday!

Have you tried Destin and Aquaphor for the diaper rash. Especially at naptime and over night. It seems to help my son who gets a bad diaper rash if I don't use destin at every diaper change.

I don't usually comment but have you tried putting a little baking soda in the tub during bath? Baking soda will take the redness away & dry out the rash. Our pedi also recommends Malox or the like & it works. It's cool so when it is poured on it feels good. I know these sound odd but they work for my boys.

Happy 10 months, Abigail! Can't believe our girls are almost one! You are way ahead of me on the party planning, though! I better get in gear!
