10 Months

This little girl is such a character! Read about what she's been up to this month and you will know what I mean!
- We took Addy to the pool a couple weeks ago and she still thinks it's great. She likes to lay on her back in the water, which I think is pretty brave! I didn't get a picture of her laying on her back, but I think these ones are cute!
- She has this funny little laugh that she's been doing lately when she's really excited. It's hard to describe, but it sounds kind of like a belly laugh, where you force all the air out of your lungs. She usually does it when she's around other kids. In Relief Society last Sunday, we were sitting by a little boy and Addy was doing her little laugh very loudly and I could see several sisters with shoulders shaking as they tried to hold in their laughter. Anyway, that laugh of hers cracks me up every time. It never gets old! I captured it in this little clip, but it's just a short burst. She usually goes on longer, but she tends to get distracted by the camera.

- It is never safe to leave a laundry basket full of folded clothes within Addy's reach. She will have all of those neatly folded clothes strewn across the floor in no time!
- She has recently discovered that she can squish her bananas in her hands and she quite enjoys doing it.
- If I'm laying on the floor, she likes to crawl up behind me and squeal. She thinks it's so funny to try to scare me.
- I'm pretty sure she is saying "hi" now. It doesn't sound exactly like "hi" it's more like "ha", but she says it every time she sees little kids at the store. She looooves little kids. She also says it when Matt comes home from work.
- Despite her inability to walk, Addy is already trying to climb onto things! The other day she used me as a stepping stool to climb onto the couch!
- She can drink out of a cup by herself...sort of. She dribbles and spills quite a bit, but she sure loves to try!

I love that crazy morning hair!
