Miss A has been capable of walking for a week or two.  Out of the corner of our eyes we would see her take a step or two, but that was all she was willing to do.  Last night she really got going!
I was out last night.  This was the only picture taken.

Here is a bonus picture of her climbing onto the coffee table.  She was so proud. :)

Today she has been walking all over, even standing on her own from a squat.
I'm not quite ready to call her a toddler yet (she is only 10 months), but I'll likely have to in the next week or two.

Sister clothes, ponies, Build-a-bear.... A morning with Miss C!

Miss C was in need of jeans.  I told her we needed to go shopping for some.  We headed out to Old Navy (with big sis Miss E).  Miss C found her jeans, and two matching outfits for her and Miss A.  It was all on sale, so I let her get them.  I love that she loves her little sister so much and want to encourage these bonds. :)

One of the matching outfits.

Then I told her I needed to run into the mall for something really quickly.  Miss E and I were smiling all the way.  We had a secret plan....  Miss C spotted Build-A-Bear.  What was that in the window?  Was it My Little Ponies?  It was!  Miss C LOVES My Little Pony.  Could we go in?  :)  Miss E and I were happy with this reaction/question.  This was our secret plan!  

When our little kids get $5 or more in cash I put it in my wallet (marked with the name of the child) so they can make purchases when they come up.  Miss C had a wad saved up, I split the cost of this purchase with her.

Miss C wanted to run into Target to look at their Pony selection as well.  She spent the remainder of the day playing happily and even sharing very nicely with siblings. :)

10 months

Miss A hit 10 months last week!  Time sure is flying by with her.  She is growing like a weed as evidenced by her clothes no longer fitting (it's just about time to pull out the fall clothes!).  With all of that growing, it is no surprise that she loves to eat.  Apples, carrots and cheese seem to be her favorite foods right now.

With so many big brothers and sisters in various activities or needing appointments she's always on the go, and does not seem to mind too much.
all packed up for a long morning/afternoon out for a Science group meeting

She is always learning new things.  She can stand on her own very well.  Walking should not be too far behind.  For now she enjoys pushing her little stroller.
Miss A loves to cuddle and her favorite way to sleep is in the arms of her mommy or favorite big brother (yes, she does have a favorite).
