I can’t believe that Hannah is 10 months old today. She is a very busy little lady who makes us laugh and want to tear our hair out! She is finally taking some decent naps, her afternoon nap now can last 2 to 3 hours, instead of several 40 minute naps throughout the day. I guess all that crawling, screeching, pulling herself up, digging in cupboards, harassing the cats, walking around furniture (or with it, if it happens to move), going up and down steps, and walking with one or two handed assistance wears her out. She now has 8 teeth.
She is now almost exclusively on table food. She will eat baby food every once in a while, but not often enough that I will be keeping a large supply on hand. We really have yet to find anything she will not eat. She love ham and ground beef and pretty much any fruit or veggie. She even likes pickles. Can’t argue with that, I just hope it stays that way!
We are just starting to get some cooler weather down here and it actually feels like fall. Hannah took her first wheelbarrow ride with daddy, and seemed to like it, although not for very long. She does like the leaves, but we just had rain after they fell, so no leaf pile pictures this year 😦
We were able to go to Florida for a long weekend earlier this month. We were in the Ft. Lauderdale area and enjoyed a few days of sunny, 80 degree weather. Hannah had fun swimming. We are not sure how she felt about the beach. The first evening, we went down to the beach and she was trying to crawl into the surf, and the next day, she hated it. This is why we got a hotel with a pool, that she thoroughly enjoyed, as well as hallways and atriums with a really good echo! While in Florida we went to a Butterfly garden that had some birds as well. She was pretty fascinated, but none landed on her.
We will be having a VERY busy holiday season this year as we are driving to Green Bay for Thanksgiving and Minnesota for Christmas! We leave this friday for Wisconsin as we are stopping at the Noth’s first as I have yet to see their house! Then we will be heading to Green Bay to Thom’s parents for the Thanksgiving. Thom will be heading home the sunday after, but as he is returning with a coworker for a Packers game the next weekend, I and Hannah are going to stay at Grandpa and Grandma’s for another week! We are excited as we will also be spending Thanksgiving with Andy’s family as well as Thom’s grandpa and grandma Forsha and then Uncle Scott and Denise on the day after!
We are home for less than two weeks before we then head to Minnesota for Christmas with my family! We are very excited to see Kayla and Raegan again!! On both trips, we will be stopping for the night at some point and taking along plenty of DVD’s and put the system in our van to work! Unbelievably, not long after Christmas will be Hannah’s first birthday!!
Well, that is what our household is doing. We are pretty sure Hannah will be walking very shortly, while we were in Florida, she started standing on her own for a few seconds and has done it several times, for longer periods, since.
