Happy 10 Month Birthday!

Sweet Pea is 10 months old today!

Hard to believe that it was only 10 months ago when we were told that she has DS.  The rug was pulled out from under our feet, but we have learned how to regain our balance for the most part.  We might be described as drunk...but we are at least standing again.

Here are a few of Sweet Pea's milestones that she is doing at 10 months old:
  • Rolling around to get to toys (including her doggy)
  • Can get down from sitting by bending her legs and lowering herself on her arms to the side
  • Scoots backwards (not a ton, but a fair amount)
  • Loves to receive lots of zerberts from Mommy and Daddy
  • Likes listening to songs...even though Mommy can't sing well
  • Still enjoys blowing raspberries (even though Ms. Sara and the rest of us wish she wouldn't) but definitely not as much as she did a month ago
  • Enjoys laughing with Mommy and Daddy and showing us her big smile
  • Favorite toy is still the light up musical star by Baby Einstein (This toy has gotten us through so many therapy sessions!)
  • Enjoys rolling onto her belly when she sleeps
  • Still sleeps on an incline and winds up at the bottom of the crib many mornings
  • Goes to bed by 7:30pm and normally gets up once for another bottle and then gets up around 6am
  • Favorite food is still cereal (both rice and oatmeal) and enjoys watered down juice, but not a big fan of water yet
  • Still only has one bottom tooth, but the other one should appear any day now
  • Sitting is her favorite position
  • Pulling down her glasses might be her favorite hobby and she gets extra joy out of the frustration it causes Mommy and Daddy
  • Weighs 17lbs 3oz and has lots of rolls still
All in all, she is doing really well and Daddy and I are very proud of our little Sweet Pea!

We love you Sweet Pea!  Happy 10 month Birthday!
