10 Months old...

Hali's new friend

It's true, Hali is ten months old today (well yesterday, it's midnight!) She is becoming quite the little character! Hali is now saying saying "hi", "hello", "bye, bye", "ma ma", "da da", and sometimes "pop". Last week she started to dance anytime she hears music (it's so cute). Hali is really good at giving kisses (open mouth of course) and is always giving them to mommy. She loves to make noise by singing, squealing, or pounding on anything especially the dryer.

Hali has always loved taking baths, and still does. I think her favorite part about baths is being naked. She just loves not having to wear clothes. Anytime I change her diaper she tries to escape once the diaper is off.

Hali has three teeth now, her two bottoms and her top right fang (I don't know the proper name). The other 'fang' is coming in on the other side, so she is our little vampire. Travis says it is all my fault because I have been reading to many vampire books lately. If it stays this way you can all guess what she will be for Halloween! Over Labor Day she mastered climbing up the stairs. However, we are now working on the proper way to go down them.

EVERYTHING, I repeat EVERYTHING Hali sees goes straight into her mouth. The second she sees me coming after her she zips her lips shut and crawls as fast as she can away from me. I swear my floors are clean, but she still manages to find something to choke or gag on.

The other day when I was at the dollar store Hali saw these kids playing with a rubber snake and she got so excited, so I bought it for her thinking it would keep her entertained while we shopped. It is currently her favorite toy. She carries it around in her mouth all day. It is quite weird how attached she has become to it. Travis HATES snakes so it is pretty funny to see his reaction whenever she is packing it around.

Another new thing Hali loves is to get into my makeup! Are girls really interested in makeup this early? We are in for it! She takes everything out of my bag and puts it first in her mouth and then on the ground. Whenever I am getting ready she gets so excited because she knows she gets to play with the makeup.

This girl is the joy of our lives, and every time I get sad thinking about her growing up I just have to laugh at all the funny things she does and how much more fun she gets the older she is. We sure love our little love bug!

I guess she is curling her lips with my eyelash curler!

It looks like it's time to relocate or baby-proof your make-up drawer. Jake destroys mine. He's used my eyeshadow applicator as a Q-tip, taken a bite out of a cover-up stick, mashed my eyeliner pencil into some eyeshadow, and gotten mascara everywhere! At least he hasn't tried any on, though. I guess it could be worse.
