I can’t believe Annabel is already ten months old. The months are going fast, but this one feels like it was only a week long.

ten months old

She can’t believe it either.

turning back the clock

(month one, month two, month three, month four, month five, month six, month seven, month eight, month nine)

weight: 22 pounds 5 ounces
length: 29 inches tall
head: 18.5 inches
hair: insane

I think I put my finger on why the month has gone so fast…

I cannot take my eyes off her for a second, and not just because she’s cute. I sometimes take her to the day care at my gym, and the other day when I picked her up after my workout one of the workers said, “she sure likes to climb things!”


She now has eight teeth – four on top, four on the bottom. I would happily buy her dentures if it meant she never teethed again, but alas.

Her eyes are a mystery. I thought they’d settled on hazel, but they now go back and forth between bluish-green and hazel-ish. Chameleon!

She mimics my noises and some of my expressions and gestures. She is such a crack up. Her mimicking skills are going to come in verrrrrry handy verrrrrrrrrrry soon.

Her 90th percentile in everything has her in 12-18 month clothing, which had me scrambling to get her warm things for the season. It also meant her new friend Molly (who was born on Friday, yay!) got a lot of awesome hand-me-downs. Luckily, it seems like her weight gain has slowed a bit, for this month at least. I’m hoping that means she’ll get a lot more use out of her clothes.

She can walk if someone holds her hands. She LOVES it. So mark my words, she’ll be walking this month.

And then all hell will break loose.
