10 Months

Poor, neglected second child. We've completely lacked in taking 8 and 9 month photos. :( And to be honest, I can't believe the stars aligned for me to take pics for her 10th month. (By stars aligning, I mean me remembering to take them at some point when Asher is napping. He's kind of a camera hog theses days...) Anyway, here are pics from Millie's 10 month photo shoot. She is missing the "10 Months" sticker because it wouldn't stick since there's a bow on her shirt and you couldn't really see it anyway.

Fun facts:
-Weighed in at a whopping 14 lbs 10 oz at her 9 month appt.
-She is sweet, smiley, relational and very cuddly and affectionate!
-Loves to be with and imitate her brother.
-Has no teeth yet.
-Can climb up our entire staircase. (thank God for safety gates)
-Likes to go to bed at 6:30 theses days and sleeps for 12-14 hours. Plus 2 naps. Yep. Kinda great.

It's true. I've been gossiping about my son lately. Daily. Particularly at meal times.

Millie, do you think that Asher can take a big bite of his egg? It would be really cool if he did...

Out of the corner of my eye I see Asher look up and take a big ol' bite out of the egg he was refusing to eat.

Wow Millie! Did you see that? Asher took a HUGE bite. I'm really impressed.

Why this works I do not know, but I gossip during most every meal these days. It works well with praise too.

Papa, did you know that Asher shared really well with Sissy today? Yep, he sets such a good example for her...

Of course I speak directly to my child as well, but this is a nice way of mixing things up. Who doesn't like to hear good things being spoken about them?
