Dear Zahara: 10 Months

Dear Zahara,

Happy 10 month birthday! Another happy month in the books! The highlight of this month was seeing G-mom and Pop Pop in Paris.

You are still really social and love being around people. Lately though you've been a bit clingy to mummy. You're perfectly happy to be around others as long as I'm holding you.

You never stop moving! You are crawling like a champ and can even make it up stairs; you haven't figured out how to get down though. You love pulling yourself up on everything--the table, bookshelves, the toilet (yuk!). This new-found freedom has give you a whole new outlook on life. There is so much to see and touch and yank! Current favorites are the TV cable cords, the vase on the bookshelf and the window curtains.

The only time you do sit still in when we read together. This is one of our favorite activities. We read all sorts of books, but every day we read the Gruffalo and the wonderful copy of Good Night Moon that Aunt Bradi made for you. You love looking at the pictures of her and mummy when you were in my tummy, and of you as a new baby.

Two more teeth are poking through your gums as we speak. You seem to be handling these teeth much better than the first ones. You're still sleeping well and we haven't had to give you medicine yet. I hope it stays easy for you.

Zoey, you are truly the light of our lives. We love you so much and are so proud to call you ours. Happy birthday!
