I haven’t posted any recent updates on my little baby. Because we were traveling I missed her 9-month mark and now she is 10 months. Boo-hoo! That means she is ALMOST one, and my baby will soon be a toddler. Because of lack of space, the hubby has been making me get rid of some of my baby gear…bouncy chair, baby swing, baby jumper. I thought it would be easy to give away, but when I had a moment of a tearful breakdown I realized how attached I’d become to these items and how they are SO MUCH more than an object to keep a baby occupied. Giving them away has definitely made it final that the baby-making chapter in my life has ended and my babies are not-so-much babies anymore. Sigh.
My Chloe is in a really fun stage now. She is talking using two-syllable words like “mama”, “dada”, “baba”, “uh-oh”. She crawls really fast. Opening cupboards and pulling everything out is one of your favorite things to do. And if books are on the book shelf, she makes it a priority to pull them all off–no questions asked. She turns her noses up on baby food–she wants only the goods. And she has just enough hair for me to put in a hair elastic. Adorable!
