Ten months? Where has the time gone? It seems like only yesterday I was wondering if Little Miss would ever make her appearance and now 10 months old?
Martha turned 10 Months on the 12th. It was a week full of birthday celebrating and memories. My birthday was the 10th, if MaMa was still with us she would have been 100 on the 11th and then Martha hitting 10months on the 12th. MaMa was a Martha. I think of MaMa often when I look into Martha Ann’s blue eyes.
Little Gooseberry wasn’t content with just crawling for long. She is cruising around every where, exploring all the different rooms of the house and mastering the art of free standing. You can see in her eyes that she wants to walk. Working on balance!
Bekah and I tried diligently to catch Martha on her bear blanket that we use each month for Martha’s photo session. She really didn’t see the point in sitting still when she could chase us around the room. She is an active girl. Loves to cuddle and laugh. Always willing to be held and rocked. If she hears our squeaky rocking chair, she scoots right over to be rocked.
Surprisingly, Martha is still not interested in solids; still exclusively breastfed. She loves to grab food off the plates, crumble it up and throw it on the floor or just play with it. After getting a bit of applesauce on her tongue yesterday, she gagged. Hmmm, guess she just isn’t ready yet. Can’t wait to see what she decided will be her first solid food. Chocolate?
So amazing how quickly these little ones can grow and change. A beautiful miracle the Lord has blessed me with.
