At 10 months of age, Alice is quite busy. She has learned to crawl, and she is FAST. (Here is a little video of her crawling skills.) She can pull up on furniture, and she is already trying to let go and balance on her own. She can climb stairs. She eats everything in sight. She reminds me of that Tasmanian devil from the old cartoons, who traveled around in a tornado of energy. She has started waving and clapping her hands when someone says, "Yay!" She says "Mama", and her real first word, "Baby", which sounds like "Buh-buh".
In spite of her energy level, Alice is actually a very calm, easy baby. She is extremely laid-back, and she continues to be a great sleeper, even in the midst of all of the chaos of moving. I am so thankful for her content, easy-going personality.
It's so hard to believe that we will be celebrating Alice's first birthday this summer. Where has the time gone?
