10 Months Old

Our baby doll is 10 months old today! Her happy-go-lucky personality is really coming out. She has become much more independent in the last month. Shelby loves to crawl around and explore anything she can reach. She also prefers to feed herself. She is a real mess.

Another HUGE milestone is that she is sleeping through the night!! I didn't think it would ever happen. But, she started right after Christmas. And it didn't really take that much crying. She still gets up at the crack of dawn, but I'll take it!

I am also starting to wean her from nursing. I am doing it gradually because I am taking Claire to Disney World the first weekend of April. So, it has to be done by then because I am not carrying a breast pump into the Magic Kingdom!

Shelby is wearing 6/9month clothes and size 3 diapers.

Shelby can say MaMa and DaDa and knows who we are.

She loves the Street's dog, Maggie.

She likes other babies and big kids to play with.

She likes to be read to and turn the pages.

She likes playing with Claire's doll house and has started playing with baby dolls and our pink kitchen.

There really isn't much she doesn't like but, her favorite person of all is still Claire!

Good Morning

Good morning! We'll still here. Things have died down around since Christmas is over. We've just been hanging out and playing with new toys. This is a picture of the girls this morning. They are so sweet to each other in the morning. Shelby (who gets up at the crack of dawn) is always glad to see her sister when we wake her up at 7am. We snuggle, watch Mickey Mouse, and play in the den. Have a great Thursday!
