I need to update my user pics lol
Ok so as I said, Evangeline is 10 months old. She is the cutest little tiny thing ever. She eats like a horse, but I guess has a crazy metabolism cause as of Tuesday she is 16lbs, 27.5 inches. The doctor laughed and said, well she gained a percentile. up from 2nd to 3rd. No one cares thankfully because she has been consistently this petite from the get go.
So I forger what I have said about her so I will just list her new awesome stuff:
-Two teeth that loves to bite with, chew her crib, her high chair, my boob 😦 everything she can get in her mouth get’s bit.
-Crawls like crazy, pulls up on everything and is now cruising well along furniture and from one piece to another.
-Has mastered steps so we have to watch out, the other day in seconds she climbed a step ladder to the top run, I still don’t know how she did it.
-She can stand alone for a couple seconds
– Catches herself 99% of the time she falls now, so way less injuries, til she starts walking lol.
-Has added Daddy and kitty to her repertoir, also mimics lots of words but dosen’t understand their meaning yet.
-Copies many of our actions, like clapping her hands and puckering her lips.
-Give big sloppy open mouth kisses.
-Shares, so cute, tries to feed everyone (including the dog) bites of her crackers.
-Feeds herself pretty much exclusively
-Eats ANYTHING, we are talking ginger, blue cheese, smokes salmon, lamb..and eats alot, it’s unreal, she LOVES food haha.
-Still has the same fiery temprament she has always had, but now that she is older, and we can tell it’s just a tantrum and not something seriously wrong it’s so much easier to deal with. I say all the time now, she was not colic, just oppinionated. 🙂
Being that this is my first round mothering :(, I certainly got myself a child of extremes and I have no idea what I am doing, but feel like I have come leeps and bounds in the past 10 months, and thus am feeling ready (in the next year) to take on another. I spent the first 5 months of this little one’s life wondering if what I was doing was ok, right, wrong, because she cried so much, so often, but now I see I must have done something right (love her to pieces, cover her in kisses and hugs) because she is becoming the most outgoing, confident little girl and my heart is bursting with pride. I think I could do it all again, and do it better this time now that I have a bit more confidence in myself. I don’t look forward to another pregnancy because of the stress and fear, but I want to have at least 2 living children so Evangeline has a sibling to grow up with.
Anyhow, here is the round of most recent pictures.
