Sweetest sweet Stelly, you're ten months old today! Unbelievable, and yes, I know I say that every month. This month you are cruising every chance you get - you want to walk to badly. You're beginning to say some discernable "mama" and "dada" and I'm 100% positive you've said "Isla" a few times. You are always on the go go go and are inquisitive and mischievious. You give the side eye and you're off! I'm pretty sure your favorite person is your daddy, unless you are tired, or cranky or scared and then you want me. That's okay - I like being your security blanket.
Sweet baby, even though your 3:00 am on. the. dot. wake ups for just a bit more milk sometimes kills me in the morning, I know that time is finite and I will not complain too much. I get to hold you and cuddle you, just you and me until you fall back asleep until about six or so when you're up for the day (well, at least until your morning nap comes calling around 9).
You're a big eater and your current fave is definitely blueberries. You are also a big fan of bacon, eggs and pretty much any meat. And fruit. And veggies. Well, pretty much every food we've put in front of you you've been very interested in tasting and usually eating with great relish. Love these early days of the non-picky eater. Maybe we'll luck out and you won't follow in your brother and sister's footsteps of major food attitude.
You're strong and tall and filling out nicely and you are so so handsome. I love your blue eyes and golden hair, tiny toes and even your crazy herniated belly button (which I do actually hope goes away soon, it's kind of weird).
Soon you'll be a toddler and the sweet baby days will be but a memory. Another baby grown so fast. We love you so much. I love you so much.
