10 Months Old!

Pearl is ten months old!
Pearl has developed a love for many new games this month.  She enjoys it when we chase her around the house.  Her crawl increases in speed until we "get her" and then she giggles like crazy.  It's a pretty fun game.  Her other favorite games are playing her daddy's tummy like a drum, peek-a-boo, clapping, and she will occasionally give high fives.  Pearl is still totally obsessed with waving to everyone.
She has started giving sloppy kisses on occasion.  I love how she comes at me with her mouth open and her tongue sticking out.  It is adorable!  I have been getting a lot more hugs from her this month too.
Pearl finally sleeps the whole night in her crib.  I don't have to bring her into our room at any point in the night anymore.  It is amazing.  She and I both sleep so much better this way.
We went on our first flight as a family to New York this month to attend a wedding.  Pearl did great with all of the travel.  She only cried a bit on the flight home and slept for the entire flight out there.  She made friends everywhere we went and charmed so many other travelers on the subway.  Pearl had the best time at the wedding.  That baby can party.  She stayed up until 3am!
We haven't made much progress toward walking this month.  Pearl is very sturdy on her feet and walks all around the living room while holding onto furniture.  Standing on her own still makes her very nervous though and she lowers herself to a sitting position any time I let go of her hand.  I wonder how long it will take for her to feel comfortable.  I just want her to walk so I can stop washing her dirty, crawling hands all the time!
See how much she has grown!


  1. So cute! She has changed so much! Waving and high fiving and clapping and hugs!!! We need to start teaching H more tricks! Haha! :) Yay for crib sleeping!

  2. It was so great to see both of you this weekend! I can't believe she is 10 months!! <3

  3. I LOVE that second picture of her with her squished nose! :) SO cute! Yay for party babies.. Cruz would NEVER have lasted that long. Heck, if he lasts until 10pm we're doing great! haha. Hurrah for crib sleeping.. it's amazing what a difference that makes! xoxo

  4. She is so adorable! I just want to squish the cheeks! When I was at weddings, ,y son (he's 10 now) would find a quiet place out of the way with his coat and my coat and fall asleep. He will still do that, but he's a bit too big for me to carry to the car now. So I have to gauge him and leave before he falls asleep, but make sure he's had enough fun.

  5. 10 months already? wow she is growing like a weed and definitely oh so cute! i'm glad she did good on a plane for you and that is great about her sleeping in her crib

  6. What? No way! How time flies. I truly think 10 months was the most fun time with my son. He started pulling the personality card a lot then, and he became unstoppable. He wasn't walking yet, but that didn't keep him out of stuff! Seriously, though? Pearl's big grin is just too cute.

  7. Awwe - that grin int he second shot. Miss Pearl - you are incredible.

  8. Oh my goodness! How did 10 months go by so fast, I feel like I was just checking out her little three month old snap yesterday!
