10 months have flown by..

Well, our family of 3 has been just that - a family of 3 for 10 months and some days I feel like we were just coming home from the hospital and other days I wonder what I ever did on my days off without Lyla. Here is Lyla's 10 month old photo... Gotta love the side pony tail - I am a 80's child you know!

Lyla continues to amaze me. He is speaking fairly well. She says "Hi!" very clearly. When we go into Gymboree now she says "HI!" as soon as we walk in the door, and she eagerly says hi to her instructor when she comes up and see her. She is saying - mama, dada, teddy, pretty, puppy. This past week she heard Ryan say purple, and she said purple very clearly. She also said "Hi Lyla" very clear as well. She claps her hands, clicks her tongue, puts her hands up high in the air when you say "Up high", and she is waving hi and bye. She is rolling and wanting to walk. She will roll herself to where she wants to get. She is very eager to get walking and walks around at Gymboree pushing a milk crate on wheels with someone holding on to her back. She is walking quite good holding onto just our fingers now.
We weighed her and she is about 18 pounds 3 ounces on her ten month birthday.
Her favorite toy right now is her teddy and books. She could sit and look at books all day and be content. She has become pretty attached to me over the past couple of weeks. It is so sweet when I come home from work and she smiles and reaches for me then gives me a big hug. Gotta love that!
For about a week now, she has been sleeping very good. Last night was an expception I hope. She now seems to be going down to sleep around 8:00 and will sleep until 8:00 or so. It is nice to have a good nights sleep again! Last night she didn't sleep well. Something was bothering her, either she is getting sick, getting teeth or gassy.. but she just wasn't herself, and even today she isn't herself.
Anyways, must run.. Ryan is bringing home take out.. Yum - Kruse and Muer pizza. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
