Finley: 10 Months Old

10 Months!  Only 2 months away from 1 year old!  I won't think about it yet.  I'm just going to enjoy every day with you!  Because every day you do something new.  

 Between months 9 and 10, pulling up was your biggest accomplishment.  Although you could pull up in 9 months, you were kinda stuck once you got there.  At 10 months, you were pulling things off shelves and exploring everything.

You are a very determined little thing.  It doesn't matter what obstacle is in your way if you want to go somewhere you are going to go and go straight to it.  It never occurs to you to go around something when you could just crawl through it even if its a tight squeeze.

This shopping trip got really interesting when I turned away for like 10 seconds and turned back to find you like this.  You proceeded to do this again at target even with the lap strap on.

All of this death defying stunts is probably why cuts and bruises became so common this month.  Here is your first big bruise (on your forehead).  You were trying to show off for Aunt MoMo and hit a slat on your crib when you fell.

You got some good friend time in this month.  Dinner with Charley and Harper.
Trying to get a picture of you 3 was a challenge.

Play time with some of your favorite boys.  Toran and Jack.

And a pool party with more friends.
You are attempting to eat watermelon here.  I think we have come to decide you don't like it at this point.  You eat a bite here and there but aren't in love.  Your taste buds are ever changing though so maybe sometime soon you can join your Daddy in loving watermelon.

We surprised Aunt Candy with a visit for her birthday.  Anytime you get to see your Cubby and Crocky you are excited.  Cubby loves trying to hold you.
 And you think he is super fun even when he is endangering Crocky's life pushing him at break neck speeds around the gym.

Finger foods were a hit this month.  Here you are trying your first waffle.

You still love your sissy, Paisley.  

Playing at Big C's office is so fun.

First ride on the four-wheeler.

This month you also discovered the toilet.  

And got your first mani/pedi from Aunt Candy.

This month has been so fun.  You are becoming more of a hand full by the day but it's so neat watching you discover this whole new world around you.  We love you, Ninny!

Beach Weddings Are Fun!

At the end of June, we headed down to San Destin for a family wedding.  It was Finley's second time at the beach and she loved it once again.  Here is our trip in pictures.

 We didn't have the best weather but playing in our beautiful condo was fun too.

When we did get to go to the beach, Finley loved being in the water.  
A sweet lady on the beach offered to take our "family" picture.  They do look like they could be our kids.

Finley loved eating the sand and playing with her cousins.

We took some family pictures after the beautiful wedding. 
 He was so excited to get to hold her.
 Sisters!
 

Her cousins wanted her to sit on their shoulders until they realized she would use their hair as a handle to hold on to.
 Finley's "silly" face her Gran taught her was in full force this week.  Here she is sharing it with her cousins.
And here she is being silly with her Gran.

We had such a great week!  Congrats to Haley and Dylan!

Finley: 9 Months Old

Well as you can see I haven't posted in like a month and a half.  For a while the internet didn't work...dirty Comcast.  Now I'm just not as into it as I used to be.  I love it on one hand and on the other hand when I have "me" time during nap I just want to eat a meal in peace and watch my favorite show. I currently have at least 3 blogs to write and post.  Here's to hoping I can get those done at some point in the near future.

9 Months!
I feel like this month was full of big changes, particularly in your motor skills.  Crawling and pulling up became the norm and basically all you wanted to do all the time.  You are in ~ the 25th percentile for weight and close to the 50th percentile for height.  (If I had written this on time I would remember more exactly...nice mom.)  

Here is your last month in snapshots.

You spent the day with your favorite Kentucky cousins!

You have fallen in love with your blankie!

Why sit when you can stand? 


You discovered outlets, in particular you love to pull things out of them.

Pretty girl at CiCi & Seth's house.

Cousin love in your favorite chair.

Another favorite this month...Paisley's dog bowls. 

Playing in standing just like a big girl.  Where did my baby go? 
You love opening and shutting the "computer" on your table best of all.

Just being a silly girl.

 I love that you are so joyful and excited about life.

First ponytail!

Silly girl with her tutu on her head!

Can't have a blog post without a picture with you and your best friend, Paisley.

Happy 9 Months!
(Now for Mommy to get started on your 10 month blog post.  Maybe next nap.)
