Lucy: 10 Months

I'm a little slow getting this update out, but better late than never!

If I could use one word to describe Lucy at this stage it would be busy!!  This little girl is a busy body - she is constantly moving, wiggling, crawling, standing and looking around.  Constantly!  I love watching her maneuver herself around.  Lucy has great balance and can even stand on her own for a few seconds if you get her in the right position.  She is not walking, but "cruises" around using whatever is within her reach to help her get around on her feet.

This darling 10-month-old is showing us more emotion and personality.  A few times she has burst into tears as she watched her daddy leave for school.  It melts my heart.  She has the cutest laugh and loves to smile.  She is a becoming more aware of her surroundings and is a little nervous around new or unfamiliar faces.  But give her a couple minutes and she warms right up.  She loves to drop things - toys, food, clothes - anything she can get her hands on.  Lucy also loves to point, grab your nose and inspect your teeth.

Just a few days ago she started saying "dada" and "nana."  Her babbles are starting to sound more conversational.  Lucy discovered a favorite toy!  It is a darling felt elephant that her 7-year-old cousin, Megan, made for her when she was born.  She loves to carry this elephant everywhere she goes and just smiles and giggles when she holds it.  When I check on her during her nap I will even sometimes find her clutching it.  So sweet.

We love this girl more each day and are so grateful she is ours!
