Happy 10 months!

Our sweet Hallie is TEN months old! I have no idea where the time has gone. I was thinking back to all her "firsts" in amazement. She has learned so much in such a short time!

We celebrated Hallie's 10 "month-a-birthday" on the road--traveling from Alabama back to Texas. We spent the night on the eve of her "month-a-birthday" in Ruston, Louisiana. She had a fabulous hotel crib and explored the entire room--crawling under the coffee table and desks. She was adorable! :o) Her actual "month-a-birthday" was spent riding for 7 hours to Waco, TX to visit her Grammy and Gramps. She was a trooper and traveled beautifully! We let her stay up a little later to celebrate her 10 months!

Some of her accomplishments, now that she's 10 months old, include (but are not limited to):
*crawling rather quickly
being out of anyone's sight before they can even say "Hallie"
finding pennies in the oddest places and then trying to quickly put it in her mouth before Mommy or Daddy can get it
*pulling up on anything and everything
*trying (rather unsuccessfully) to climb the stairs--this resulted in Mommy and Daddy putting up a new baby gate
*cruising around the coffee table
*pointing at things she wants/sees
*waving hello and bye-bye
*feeding herself "star puffs" among other things and drinking water from a sippy
*just being silly! :o)

We are absolutely enjoying seeing Hallie grow and learn every day! She never ceases to amaze us and definitely keeps us on our toes! We never knew we could love someone so incredibly much!

Ten month pictures will be up soon.
