Dear Baby Girl,

WOW, now I have seriously gotten behind on my letters to you. I am so mad at myself for this. I am constantly telling myself to SLOW DOWN, but life gets so nuts I often forget.

You are growing up so fast, I can't believe how quickly this past year has gone. I can't believe you are already 10 months old. We have had a busy couple of months and you have changed so much in the last few months.

You have gone from sitting up to crawling to pulling your self up to standing for a minute or two. I am grateful you aren't trying to walk yet! You sure love to stand though, you are so proud of your self, you love to let go of whatever you are holding onto and you squeal before your bum hits the floor. You have gotten pretty quick with your crawling and LOVE to crawl away and laugh in the middle of your diaper changes! Your crawl is so funny because you crawl with your right knee on the floor but wont put your left knee down, instead you push off with your left foot. Despite your silly little crawl, you still look so darn cute cruising around. You are also waving bye-bye and it is so fun to see you interact more and more.

You are still a tiny little thing, weighing in at a whopping 14 pounds. Your such a little string bean. You have to wear 0-3 month shorts and Capri's just so they will stay up on your itty bitty waist. I love that you are still so tiny because you have felt like a baby so much longer!! Although your slow weight gain has had us and your doctor a little worried. We have you on probiotics and other supplements to help you absorb the most nutrients out of your food! We are hoping these things help you to put on a little weight. Your height has continued to slowly increase, so we know that you are growing :).

You are the happiest and sweetest baby. You LOVE being doted on by your sisters and brother and they love to dote on you. You are SO LOVED, it isn't even funny how much we all adore you. Your sweet spirit fills our home with so much love and we are so lucky to have you in our family. I love how you like to snuggle right in my chest still and love when you play with my face as I hold you.

I love you to the moon and back my beautiful little princess!
