10 months old! Holla!

Miss Bre Bre you are 10 months old today! I'm gonna skip the same old stuff I say every month about how fast time is flying and how quickly you are growing cause I feel a little like a broken record.  (It's so true though!)
We have officially nicknamed you "Busy Bre". You are so busy. And by busy I mean destroying everything you can get your cute little hands on. I like to think of you as being intelligent and inquisitive about life...but mostly you are just destructive! Ha! 

I can turn my back for half of a second and you have emptied a drawer, pulled down a shelf of books or managed to dump the dog food bowl.  You are good girl...I have to give it to you. When there is silence...I know trouble looms ahead. 

You weigh about 17 pounds and are wearing a size 3 diaper. You still wear 6-9 month clothes and a size 2 shoe. 

You FINALLY cut your first two teeth (yes-at the exact same time-hello sleepless nights). You have bitten me a few times during nursing and I have burst out into tears...then I cry as well.  Your teeth are not my friends right now. 

You are crawling and pulling up constantly.  You will be walking soon-I just know it. 

You are still nursing, but it is slowly declining. You nurse about 4 times a day and are beginning to eat 3 meals a day. You are not as interested in food as you used to be...I think because you don't have time to stop for meals...there are things to be discovered and destroyed! 

You still take two naps a day and are mostly sleeping through the night.  You consistently wake up at 5:30 to nurse and then are up for the day by 8:00. 

Your absolute favorite thing in the whole wide world is the dishwasher. You can be in another room and hear me open the dishwasher door and are there in under .2 seconds. You love to fling things out of the dishwasher, as well as shove dirty items into your mouth. It's a field day for you. And you usually throw a fit when I shut the door and call it quits. 

You are so stinking precious Aubrey Lane.  We have never laughed so much in our entire lives.  You have more personality and spunk than one should be allowed!  We love you so much, Bre! 

 Happy 10 months!


  1. That is soooo funny about the dishwasher because AL stakes out the dishwasher area. If I'm loading it or unloading it, she's right there to empty it for me. ugh....

    She's a cutie though! She'll be one before you know it ;-)

  2. she is adorable!! i bet she's a little spitfire... small but spunky! ;-)
    both of my girls would bite when teething, but it never lasted. it was usually just when their teeth were juuuust about to pop through and then once they did, no more biting. :)
    love that she loves the dishwasher. that's too funny. laney loves laundry. anytime there is a pile of clean laundry, she is wallowing in it like a pig in the mud. ;)

  3. I can't believe I get to be her Nanna!! Everytime I see those beautiful eyes, I smile. Love, love our Bre Bre. Nanna Brenda
