Bryleigh Rose you are the sweetest little girl around.
I love that you are still a mamas girl and most of the time you don't want anybody but me, it does make it a little more difficult to get things done around the house, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Your dad was just saying he has never seen a baby as attached to their mother as you are to me. I really hope it stays this way and we always have this special bond.
Age: 10 months
Favorite foods: any fruit (bananas, strawberries, blueberries and pineapple are your favorite) you love to yell at us for bites of ice cream anytime you see us with an ice cream cone, cheese, toast, whole grain goldfish and of course breast milk. Sometimes you would rather nurse then eat regular food. There really isn't much that you will not eat.
You have 2 teeth! (well 1 1/2 but we will say 2!;))
Activities: You love to feed the dog, you love animals so much, you have no problem throwing food from your highchair to Molly or walking food right over to her (Molly = our black lab).
You love to swing and be outside. You are really getting used to the grass now, your still not a fan of it touching your hands or sitting in it.
You like to drag all of your toys out of the baskets they are in (not to play with them just to throw them out and leave them) .
Your favorite toys are you drum and your picnic basket or anything your brother is playing with at the moment.
We've stepped up the game of peek a boo its no longer sitting there covering our face you like when daddy and I hide behind something and jump out and say "peek a boo", you just get the biggest smile on that adorable face, after the initial jump of course;)
Your brother is your best friend, you light up anytime you see him. It is the cutest!
Most of all you love to be held, I've learned to do a lot of things one handed, or wear the moby wrap.
Clothes: It is dress and romper weather and that is mostly what you are wearing these days. Size 12 months is what you are normally wearing a few 6-9 month things still fit and a couple 18 month outfits.
Our proudest moment I think would be how well you are walking, you are all over the place. Once you figures out you could walk there was no slowing you down! Your balance is amazing you step on toys and whatever else gets left on the floor and when I think your going to fall you just wobble a little bit and take off , and when you do fall you just use the power from your legs to get up no hands! Your fine motor skills exceed a lot of other babies your age you amaze us every day with all the new things that you do. The other day this really shocked me, you took your brothers cup over to the water cooler and pressed down on the water to try to get more to drink (of course the lid was on the cup so it just made a mess) but the fact that you knew what to do was incredible. Slow down B! I still need a baby around:(
Dads proudest moment would probably be when you reached for him when I was holding you. You rarely ever go to anybody when mommy has you....although we are still working in "mama".
You babble all day long but the only actual word you say is dada.
I am so excited to see how you change over these next few months, you change more and more everyday. You have the sweetest little personality and I hope it stays that way. I love the way you like to cuddle to go to sleep especially while teething, and the way you hum to yourself while falling asleep. Mamaw started that one she will hum to you while she is rocking you and you started doing it yourself:)
I know you are going to have so much fun this summer at KI, the beach water park and when we take our trip to Florida since you already love the water. You have a kajillion bathing suits and I cannot wait to see you running around in them.
I love you Bryleigh Rose Harrison and I am so blessed to be your mom.
