What You're Up To - 10 1/2 Months


I haven't done one of these posts in awhile. For the longest time, it seemed like Emma Ramey changed SO much from week to week that I couldn't cover it all with just a monthly post...so I did mid-month posts too. As she grew, it seemed like I didn't really need these anymore, but there is so much going on with her right now that I thought I'd do one!
 
Emma Ramey, you are...
 
-jabbering all the time!  I'm pretty sure you're talking to us, I just can't understand your little language yet.  You do say "Bye Bye" constantly (I'm pretty sure you said it to every last person in Hobby Lobby Saturday).  You also say Hi, but usually just to Hardy. :)  Every time he comes in the room you say it to him!  You can say Dada, Mama (only when you're mad though), and Daddy's 100% sure you said "cracker" to him when you wanted one this weekend.
-thiiis close to walking on your own.  You are furniture cruising like a champ.  You can take a step or two to us if we're really close, but you mostly just get down and crawl where you need to go.  You are a champ with your walker though...you can go across the room with it!  I really think you could walk on your own if you would just get brave enough.
-so funny!  Your mannerisms are just hilarious.  The way you can look at something, or react to something cracks us up all the time.
-so curious!  You are a nosy little thing...if something's going on and you want to know about it, you're going to be all up in the situation, invited or not.
-in love with the remote, iPad, or any phone.  If we say "Hello?" to you, you'll hold your hand up to your ear like you're holding a phone.
-loving Peek-A-Boo!  You were actually playing it with a piece of plastic on the coffee table this weekend. :) If you have a blanket, you're going to play it by covering your head...if you can get around a corner or behind a door from us, you're going to do it too!
-learning how to climb...unfortunately.  Mommy's trying to teach you it's going to hurt you, but it's hard.  Your favorite thing to climb on is your Anywhere Chair.
-dancing!  If music comes on, you start bouncing up and down.  You can really get down too!
-learning how to fake whine...Lord bless it. :) There is an obvious difference between your fake cry and real one, you just don't know it.
-sleeping about 2 hours in the morning, and sometimes you take an afternoon nap...it's kind of rare now though.  Mommy's not giving up yet though!  You go to sleep at about 6:30 each night (give or take 30 minutes) and sleep until about 8 each morning...so we definitely can't complain about sleep!
 
-getting your 8th tooth.  We have FINALLY gotten a little bit of a break from teething...I swear you got a tooth a week there for a couple of months.  But it's been a few weeks since the last one.  What a nice break!
 
-the absolute light of our lives!  You get more fun each and every day.  We love you so much!
