How Can It Be

I am not sure how time goes so fast but little Miss Avin is 10 months old today! 
That means we only have two months left before her first birthday and with all the Holiday stuff going on I really need to start planning her party!

I can not even believe how much Avin has changed this month.  
Whatever could have changed has changed and she is such a different baby.

Here are some things about Miss Avin

She is still tiny . .  I would say about 15 or 16 pound?

She is in mainly 6-9 month clothing with a few 6-12 month stuff.
I still put her in 3-6 month onesies and they fit just fine.

She is starting to get a little hair. 
Seems as though it is darker then Alex hair.  She has a few little long pieces but nothing major at all.  It will for sure be awhile before she has any pony tail.

She is loud!
She talks and babbles so much now it is so cute.  
She is saying dada, mama, baba, nana but she doesn't have any idea what she is say!
She seriously loves hering her voice in different tones and at different levels.

I recently took her off of formula.
Call me cheap but I am sick of buying it and she is ok with drinking milk.
She takes whole milk, 2% and 1% and she doesn't seem to mind it at all. 

Size 3 diapers and size 3 nighttime diapers.

She still has no teeth.


She is finally sleeping through the night most nights.
She goes to bed between 8:30 and 9pm, sometimes wakes up at 12 or 1 for her nuk and then sleeps until between 6:30 and 8am.  Sometimes if she wakes early I can bring her in my bed and she will sleep longer. I can not believe that it took her 10 months to sleep through the night.

She sleeps in her own crib

Taking her first steps
Last night Avin took her first steps multiple times.  She took 5 steps and then we kept having her do it over and over again because we where just so so so excited.  Chad got it on his phone and if I can't figure out how to share that I will do some video tonight!


Up the stairs
Avin has also learned to climb up the stairs today, on her 10 month birthday!  She gets so proud of herself and the things that she can accomplish.

Turns in circles
She does this cute little thing where she is sitting and turns her self around in circles using her feet.  I do not remember Alex doing this at all and I love watching Avin do it.


Solid Foods
She is starting to eat more and more solids.  She has had chicken, steak, chicken nuggets, different fruits, french fries, pasta, burger and more.

She kicks her feet
She kicks her feet and rubs her feet together so much that her toe nails leave little cuts all up and down her legs. 

Sister
Alex still adores her more then ever.  Always wanting to be around her or near her.  She is a little mommy to her and sometimes it is cute but other times it drives me INSANE!

Mommy's Girl
She is still a big time mommy's girl but is getting better.
She doesn't mind men as much as she used to.  I am hoping this phase passes soon.



Our sweet little girl.. how I can't believe 10 months has already passed. 
Why do the years and months go by so fast when you have kids. 

She is the sweetest little thing but she sure does have a side of Sass to her!

We love you more more each and every day Avin! 

( these pictures where taken spare of the moment while I was getting ready for a photo shoot.  I was trying to adjust lighting and she was my test subject )
