10 Months Old, My Ella

Dear Ella,

Unfortunately in the midst of all the chaos that has been going on I forgot to write to you on your 10 Months and talk about all the things you are doing.

Every day I fall more and more in love with you. You crinkle your little nose and give big smiles and you are just a loving soul. You've learned how to kiss and LOVE to give kisses.

You are such a smart little girl. You have started to imitate people and that has just opened our eyes that you really are learning things ~ your brain is soaking up everything it possibly can.

You try really hard on talking. You have quite a vocabulary, and you will even tell me baba if you want a bottle. You watch our mouths when we talk and try to repeat us. You love to shake your finger and everyone telling them no! no! Speaking of no no, you know when you're up to no good! When you hear the words no no you freeze and put your head down ~ that's when we know you knew that you weren't supposed to be doing that..... like I said, smart little girl!

The walking. You definitely know how to walk, yet you're still a little scared of it. Sunday at church you actually walked a good distance. Afterwards you clapped, which you always do after you accomplish something, or hear the words YAY. I am excited for you to walk, but there's no rush. My heart is aching at how quickly your baby years are flying. I love the vibrant personality that shines through more and more every day. There's no doubt that you're definitely a Leo.

You love Jayden. When he walks in the room your face lights up and you literally squeal with delight. He picks you up a lot and you smile and laugh. It's so cute. I love how close guys are and I was so scared that with the age difference, but I think it's working out perfect.

You finally started sleeping through the night. That happened shortly after you turned 9 months. I just want to say THANK YOU!!!!! You know, your brother actually slept through the night at like 8 weeks. After the 3rd month I kinda gave up, but you have been a beautiful, sleeping angel at night and I am SOOOOOOO THANKFUL!!

You don't eat baby food anymore. I try to give you 1 jar of veggies/day, but sometimes I kinda forget. You just eat whatever we eat and there hasn't been 1 thing yet that you don't like. I can already see you and your dad at seafood while Jayden and I go eat pizza. Jayden is so picky like me, and you just are a disposal w/food like your father.

I love you, Ella. I truly feel blessed that you were sent to us and are a part of our family.

One more thing to add ~ anytime you hear music you dance. You LOVE to dance.

That brought tears to my eyes Amanda. I can say the same things for Mason. He's just the peachiest of boys in the whole world.

She truly is a gift!!!
