Just wanted to share an update and wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year's, and everything in between! Hope everyone is in good health and growing well! Emalie will be 11 months old on Jan. 6th. Can't believe their birthdays are fast approaching for many of our little penguins!
Emalie started crawling just at 6 months old, standing up not long after, and has been cruising around furniture since 9 months. I thought she'd be walking before 10 months, sooner than her brother, but she's figured out that crawling is much faster. She's getting braver though- she's venturing at least one step before deciding that plopping down and crawling is better. Emalie got her first 2 teeth, the bottoms, one in mid-August and the second the first week of September. Her second set, the tops, both came in within days of each other the week before Thanksgiving.
We're still nursing but table food, preferably from Momma's or Grandpa's plate over Daddy's, is her second favorite. I've posted facebook videos of her growling and stamping her foot for not getting bites of food fast enough. 2 bites for Emalie, 1 for whoever is feeding her if you're lucky!
At our last well baby checkup she was 29 inches long and 18.5 lbs. She's growing fast! Wearing 12 mo. size clothes now which i'm not used to! Riley was still in 6 or 9 mo. size clothes at her this age. Everywhere we go we get comments about her big, beautiful blue eyes and how happy she is. They just don't get to see her demanding side, when she wants something, she wants it NOW! There is no hold on, just a minute, or anything in between. Now means now! She has a great set of lungs and is not afraid to use them or pierce eardrums within a 20 ft radius! Been that way since the night she decided to make her entrance in to this world!
Word wise we are still at "Dada." ask her to say Mama and you'll get a stream of "Dada, dada, dada…" She's said mama a few times when she first started saying Dada but she is definitely daddy's girl. She lights up around him! But when it's feeding time, it's all momma! Everyone else is chopped liver. She also absolutely ADORES her big brother. If there are other kids in the room, she only has eyes for him! Riley absolutely torments her in my opinion with all his hugs, tickling, and getting in her face talking to her but she laughs and giggles and just loves the attention for him.
Hope everyone is well! Here's some pics from our 10 mo. pic session
Ohhh I love that face!!! Creighton is walking, babbling (he says Dada that is the only understandable word) signing (he signs more and milk now) and still getting breast milk with some solid food thrown in for good measure! We have 8 teeth and weigh a bit over 20 pounds now. I can't believe that he is almost 11 months old Here he is at 10 months (eating Thanksgiving dinner)
