10 Month Update

Personality:Ella is playful and sweet. Last night we went to dinner with friends and their son who is Ella's age. He kept trying to play with her, touching her face and playing with her toys. You would have thought that someone was pinching her. She was not about it...she was such a diva! Haha! I've noticed in the last couple of weeks she has gotten BRAVE! I know that some Mama's would be nervous about their little baby pulling themselves up on a cart with wheels, or deciding to crawl off the couch but I've really learned to relax. These are things that she has to learn herself. I'm raising a free range kid!

Sleep: We still co-sleep. We still sleep great. I love it. We've been putting her down in her crib until she wakes up at about 2am. Then she comes to the family bed.

Health: Healthy! She has started taking swim lessons. We've decided to go with gentle learning lessons (it goes right along with our attachment parenting practice). We go on Tuesdays and Thursdays and I LOVE IT. She's learning to kick in the water and navigate the side of the pool. She loves the water. I'm constantly pouring water on her head while saying "1,2,3 GO" so that when its time for her to go under she can hold her breath. She giggles..

Eating: She is still Baby Led Weaning. She eats everything that we eat and to this day has never had baby cereal or baby food. I love it! Last night for dinner she had; avocados, black beans and a banana. 

Appearance: Did you see her picture? Haha. Her hair is getting longer, shes thinning out and she has more teeth (four to be exact). Friends say she looks like me from the side, has her Daddy's eyes and my nose. She def has her Dad's feet (poor girl).

Well...thats the end for now. 
I still can't believe that she's going to be a year soon!
