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

Max's Latest Happenings

Max has been a busy boy these last few months so I thought I'd do a recap. He is a little over 3 years and 2 months old just for reference.
Spring break was a few weeks ago and Max was lucky enough to be asked to join his best buddy Chase and his parents for a Lego Land adventure!
This was our first time letting anyone take Max on an outing without us! I was a little nervous he wouldn't want to go with them since he can be shy, but he took to it right away! Max and Chase above.
I love how chill Andrew looks here. Always going with the flow as 2nd siblings have to do.

Windy did say that they have a separate area for 2-5 year olds so they stayed in that part.

Max couldn't stop talking about the tower he and Chase built.
Love their teamwork although it looks like Max is bossing orders to Chase. He takes his tower building seriously.

Later that same spring break week Windy and Chris picked up Max again and took him to the playground! I guess I should mention that Chris is a HS teacher and Windy took the week off.
Max is always interested in having a snack so they took a break. I love that Windy sent me all these pics as they were happening so I could live vicariously through her while I was stuck at work.

They look like they enjoyed themselves immensely!

Caught! I always tell him not to climb the slide.
Here are some other photos from the past few months. I also wanted to jot down some silly things he says so I don't forget them.
Build and grow monster truck building with Chase.
Max also got to go to the safety expo with David for his work on St. Patricks day. He loved riding the train and hanging out with cousin Ian.
Mommy, Max porch weather selfie.
Me- "Max, you can stay for a few minutes."
Max- "No, I'm going to stay for a lotta minutes."
Max has is almost done with his refresher course swim lessons and has done a great job! He is definitely pool ready!
Max bit his tongue a little while ago and it looked like a small piece came off.
Max- "I can't find it anywhere. I need a flash light. Maybe I can find it in the morning and then I'll tape it back on. Or glue it." Hey it was better than the alternative of him thinking he ate it. 
His response to me asking him to pick up his toys. Max- "I pick up toys at school, I don't want to at home."
He is very into ninja turtles, weapons, shields or anything to fight with.
Max- "Where are you? I'm pooping" He likes an audience while he goes to the bathroom. He usually wants us to make funny faces or do magic tricks (I guess David does that with him).
Max- "You can't go feed the baby because Daddy isn't watching me" haha isn't that the truth Max. Thanks for telling me :)

We had a picnic lunch at his school for the Easter egg hunt and he loved having me there.
Sometimes I facetime with Max after swim lessons or something exciting happens while I am at work. I love it.
Cuddle time.

He is so great at the dentist now. He knows what he comes away with (new tooth brush, balloon and special toy). He recently lost a bouncy ball he got there last time so he knew exactly what he wanted to get. Eye on the prize!

My little ninja turtle!

The first thing he says when he sees Noah outside is "Noah, get the weapons." We recently purchased his own shell and weapons as a reward for finishing swim lessons so great. Now he doesn't have to bother Noah and can play with his cousin and friends. Pin It
