Finley's Growing: 10 Months

At 10 Months Finley is:

*Constantly making random strangers smile
*Crawling as fast as lightning 

*Pulling herself up, scaling, and standing independently every once and a while
*Eating finger foods with the family (loves pasta, carrots and Clementines!)

*Dancing and 'singing' with Logan all the time
* Weighing in at 19 pounds

*Still drinking three bottles (8oz.) per day and eagerly learning to drink from a sippy cup
*Surviving teething and currently has four - two on top, and two on bottom.

*Constantly looking up to her brother with the most amazingly eager smile (she's gonna give him a run for his money, that's for sure!)
*Finally, beginning to sleep through the night.  It's been a tough road with all the inconsistencies of moving, reflux, remodeling, and just being a second child!

It's hard to believe that our little lady will be a YEAR in just two months!  Why do I still see her as my sweet and tiny little newborn?  
Hmm...I'm guessing some things may just never change :)

Quotes to Remember: 008

"Mom, I don't think I'm going to marry you anymore...
I'm probably just going to marry Finley." 

- Logan (3 1/2 years)

(This was after having an in-depth and very devastating conversation with him just two weeks earlier about how he can't marry his family members.  He obviously didn't remember, so maybe it was not as devastating as I'd thought.  Regardless, this time, I just decided to go with it and relish in the moment with a little smile in response.)
