Colette is 10 Months Old!

This adorable gal is 10 months old! No stats as we had them last month.
You will notice a trend in her faces during this photo shoot. She is a happy girl for sure!

New Developments- She is just standing away and cruising the furniture. She can almost balance standing up.
Her top 2 teeth have just pushed through as you can see. I don't know why she let me do this, but it was short lived!

She is still very talkative and becomes an angry bird if you don't feed her nonstop.

Eating- She is eating at 7am, 11am, 3-4pm and 7:30pm with breast milk (the middle 2 being bottles). She is finally back to eating finger foods. We hardly have to give purees if we have enough real people food to go around. There really isn't anything she won't eat right now so I am thankful for that. Her pincher fingers are so funny to watch.
I finally got smart and realized the pictures come out way better if the light is behind you. What a doll.
Sleeping- She is doing great with sleeping most the time. She naps twice a day for 1-2hours each time. She goes to bed around 7:30/8pm and on a good night doesn't wake until the morning. Even the bad nights are good with her waking up once (at random times) and then going right back down. She sometimes wakes up around 6am and if she finds her pacci he will just roll around until I get her by 7am.
Look at that face. That is pure excitement and joy. Doesn't get better than that!
She is growing so much hair! I had to show you without the bow. The cradle cap is now hidden but still there a little bit. It doesn't bother her and I keep picking at it.

"I peeled my sticker off and I'm about to eat it" Yes outlet covers were put on just after I realized we had an open one.
Told ya about the mouth open photos.
She's getting so big. Slow down time.

Here is some every day action shots of our sweet girl. One of her first swinging excursions. She loved it.

Fluffy hair don't care!
Colette just adores her big brother.
He is very tolerant of her and tries to include her most times.

They are precious opposites. Brown hair/brown eyes, blonde hair/blue eyes. We'll see if Coco's hair stays straight. I think it will curl like cousin Hadley because of the consistency of it.
First cart ride ( I think this was from last month but forgot to post those or maybe I did)

Who says we need an actual double stroller.
We had a closet picnic the other day in our guest bedroom small closet. Fun was had by all.
They also spent time watching the AT&T workers put some new lines in our yard from Molly's dog bed.
A bubble romper. Need I say more.
Sun hats!
Can you tell I went to Old Navy.
She was going after Max and then all the sudden grabbed the gate to stand up. I swear she was about to walk off. I had to hold her down until Michelle got back so we'll be practicing now since Michelle has returned!
I found a Georgia Southern onesie that fit and put Coco in it to show her spirit for the college nationals going on that day. She must have been good luck as the all girl team took first!
I didn't have a coordinated color bow so I just grabbed the biggest one. She's like are you serious.
First double stroller experience with her adorable outfit. Max's post is coming next week so you can see what he's been up to since this has been all about sister. Pin It

Easter Basket Hunting & Family Pictures 2015

The Easter bunny brought some exciting things for the kids' Easter baskets this year.
Max got a lot of surprise eggs with tattoos, chalk fun, playdo, school work and bandaids (always a favorite).
Colette's was filled with longsleeve bibs, clothes and a new water cup.
Max was up early and you can tell :) haha look at him. He went to get Gigi so he could look for his basket.
Is it behind the couch.... no.
In the cupboard... no
How about this one?
Oooh what's that?
It's a BIG surprise egg covered in play dough.

Filled with sour patch goodies.
He loves them.
And airheads. I think he might be my friend Leah's kid as she is a candy lover. I am more of a chocolate fan.
He sees something else!
It's Colette's basket! We'll let her find it later. She was still sleeping.
Off to keep looking. Could it be in here?
Let me see...
Ha, look at his face. It's hard to see it, but his mouth is wide open and he's very excited.

I'm pretty sure he is saying Surprise egg.

It's Colette's turn!
We just guided her towards her basket and she went right for it.
Well really just for the cup and the packaging it came in.

Yay Easter  basket!
Look how cute this bib is!
Time for some official Easter outfit pictures. We dressed her in purple. A gift from our neighbors at her shower.
Max's turn. So handsome. I think he got this shirt from my friend for his 2nd birthday (size 2T) and it finally fits him great. See, clothes last a long time at our house so it's worth the investment!
Look at these cutie pies!! Yes, Max was bribed with sour watermelon candy, but boy does he perform when he wants something.
Even a kiss!

Me and my baby girl!
and my buddy! Not sure why this came out blurry.

We had my cousins and our neighbors over for Easter dinner and the kids had a great time playing together. Pilar was wonderful and patient with Colette and I got to hang with the adults instead of chasing her around.
Look how Colette is looking at Pilar. And Noah is cooperating, but as you can see Max wasn't bribed with candy so he didn't cooperate. 
And finally our official self timered 2015 Easter pic! 

Look at Max and Hadley from Easter 2 years ago! It's almost too much to handle the cuteness!!!!!!
