Claire's 10 month update!

I am finally writing this post! I thought I was going to a few weeks ago but of course life got busy and it wasn't a priority. I am glad to be writing it because I love having this blog as a journal of our lives. Claire turned 10 months old on June 22, exactly two weeks ago. I took her ten month pictures and I can't believe how much she moves around these days. It was a little hard to get a good pic.



Ha ha ha her face!

Stats: 
Wears 9 month clothing but they are getting a little small for her so she has been into 12 month clothes more lately. I have purchased a lot more clothes in that size and will probably start putting away all her 6-9 month and 9 month stuff in the next couple of weeks. 
 Sleeps 9:15 to 8:00. Usually only wakes up once for a quick diaper change and bottle around 5:00 am. After that goes right back down for a few more hours. 
Naps for 3 hours now. She only takes one nap now a days since she is sleeping through the night. 
Eats more and more "adult" food these days. Pretty much anything off our plates she nibbles on during meal times. She gets mad to if you don't share with her. 
Whistles. I have no idea where she learned this from. I mean it's an actual whistle. My sister made a joke this morning saying that Claire whistles better then she ever will.  
Crawls on her hands and knees now. She used to army crawl and depending on how far she goes she sometimes still does that. I guess it just depends on her mood but I've noticed she crawls on her knees a lot more now. 
Dances. It's the cutest thing in the world. 
Claps her hands. 
Waves to everyone all the time. 
Says pup pup for puppies and Ba for birds. She has distinguished that any animal on the ground is a pup pup and any animal in the sky is a Ba. We are working on the fact that there are different species so she isn't calling a horse a pup pup for the rest of her life. 
Says uh-oh when she drops something. Even if she drops that something on purpose. 
Says hey. 
Points to things. 
Has two more teeth on top. 
Walks along walls, in her walker, pushing something, etc. She basically loves standing and walking as long as she is holding onto something. Any day now I am waiting for her to figure out how to actually walk. 

She grows so much week to week. Sometimes our family doesn't get to see her for a few days and every time they do they all say oh she's grown again. It's so fun watching her soak in the world around her. She's figured out how to basically get into anything that mom and dad don't want her to get into so that's been fun. 
I started a new job at our local community center. I am loving it and it has been helping me with my separation anxiety I was having. I am a lot more relaxed about leaving her now and working has helped with that a lot. I don't know how long I will be able to continue working, especially since my husband is headed back to school to get his bachelor's degree in August (He is an electrician right now but he says he doesn't want to do this for the rest of his life which I am fine with). I have loved working so we will see how it goes when that starts up. We are also trying for our second baby right now. We want them to be about two years apart so now is the time to try in case it takes us a few months to get pregnant. 
We were planning on moving to a bigger house but we are thinking of staying in our current apartment until Zack is finished with school to save money. Hopefully our landlord will let us do that, we have been here 3 years already and she said that is the longest anyone has stuck around. If we stay we are going to get a storage unit and move some stuff into storage so that we can have more space for another baby. 
So there you have it for some quick updates on us and Claire. We sure do love her a lot.

Caitlin
