Late last night, or actually very early this morning at 2:00 a.m. I heard this noise that sounded like a garbage truck coming from downstairs. I went out and saw Cas sitting on the couch, in his spot by the arm. His legs were out straight and he had Siri’s pink winter boots on, a dish towel on his head and he was playing trucks on the iPad!


Dear Elin

Happy 10 months, sweet girl! You have 4 teeth (2 on top, 2 on bottom) and are pulling yourself to stand. You climb up the stairs constantly. You laugh and laugh at your brother and sister. You love them so much!! You watch everything they do. You wave hi and clap. I’ve never heard a baby laugh as much as you do. We can make you laugh so easily! You have a great sense of humor and I have a feeling this will continue throughout your life. You’ll be carefree and laid back. You’ll smile and laugh constantly. You are a joy!

You love to eat just about everything. I don’t think there’s been anything I’ve given you that you haven’t liked. You love cheese, toast, fruit, bananas (you smile every time I bring one over to you). You WATCH food. If we’re giving Cas or Siri something to eat you’re eyes follow it. Grandma said the other day that she was giving Cas a piece of cheese and you didn’t take your eyes off of it. Today you were crawling around and saw your Dad giving Cas a yogurt and you were watching intently and then started crying as if you wanted some!

You’re still nursing. I haven’t had to give you any formula yet! You go to bed every night at 8pm and wake up sometime between 6:30 and 7am. You are such a good baby! We all love you so very much!
