10 Months Old!

Today Gabre is 10 months old. I cannot believe how fast the last three months have gone. She has changed so much from just 9 to 10 months. Her personality is really starting to develop and I think we have a little comedian. Well she makes us laugh all the time. We look at her everyday and think how lucky we are to be her parents.
Here are some of the things Gabre can do at 10 months:

-She is starting to pull herself up to stand.
-She loves to stand, none of that crawling stuff.
-She has two bottom teeth.
-She likes to point with her left index finger.
-She can finally find shoes that fit. She can fit into size 0-3 month shoes now.
-She dances whenever any music comes on.
-She loves her Tofu.
-She still does not love her car seat.
-She had ice cream for the first time and loved it.
-She still has to fall asleep in mom's arms for all naps and nighttime.
-She is about 17 lbs. and 28 in.

First time eating ice cream.


Last Weeks Adventures

Gabre and I spent the 4th of July in Illinois with her Nonni and Popy. She had quite the schedule and must have been held by 20 different people a day. Nonni wanted everyone to see her first grandchild. I must say she was quite a trooper with almost no complaining. She was/is also cutting her first tooth.
While in Illinois she started waving bye bye. Now she can clap, wave and today she started covering her eyes to play peek-a-boo. Sometimes instead of covering her eyes she puts her hands on the top of her head with her eyes fully exposed. She totally thinks she is still playing peek-a-boo, it's too cute.
We had to see a doctor on our visit because she has a cyst on her arm and my friend "nurse" Morgan said so. They did her growth chart for us at the visit. Gabre is a little over 28 in. and 16.5 lbs. This puts her in the 75% for height and 10% for weight. She has grown a lot in the last two weeks. She is starting to grow out of some of her clothes. All her clothes were big when we first returned from Ethiopia. I guess I will have to put them away for our next baby. Scott said today, "So when are we starting the process again". I know he was just joking, but it would be nice.

Here are some pictures from last weeks adventures.
