Today Penny is 10 months old! She has changed so much in the last month I don't even know where to begin!. I guess I'll start with the most obvious and amazing change...PENNY. IS. WALKING. We were pleased and surprised when Penny took her first tentative steps two weeks ago...we thought she might walk early, but I really didn't think it would be this early. Though she will take a maximum of 7 or 8 steps before she falls, or drops down on purpose, she is definitely walking. She is also starting to CLIMB on everything. The other day I walked into the sun room where she had crawled on top of the train table! While these feats are certainly impressive physically, I think the cutest thing about it is she always looks so proud of herself after she has walked between to points, or climbed up on something. I suppose it is because she has one active, busy big brother to keep up with.
Penny is also trying more and more foods and is starting to drink from a cup. She enjoys eating all kinds of things with her fingers including wagon wheel pasta, fruit, goldfish crackers, and just the other day she ate two chicken nuggets. We haven't been pushing the cup issue, but over the last week she has successfully taken sips from a regular cup and from a sippy cup.
Just watching Penny do more and more things, eat better, and start to express herself is such a joy. She is fast moving toward toddler-dom...which is kind of sad!
