10 MOnths

Just a quick update...
Lauren is officially 10 months...
And on the verge of walking...
Ok. Not on the verge.
Really, she is.
I count walking as consistently taking steps...
Which is what she does.
She can take about 5 steps before she chickens out and drops to her knees.
She's awesome.
Seriously, ridiculously, mind-numbingly awesome.
No Paci.
Totally go-with the flow.
There are times where we have to check to make sure we have Lauren because we don't hear a peep from her.
Except when she talks...
She talks loudly. and a lot.
Ok. I know that doesn't make sense. But it does.
She rarely ever cries except when completely exhausted or she has 3 teeth break through at the same time.
Like Friday, yesterday and today.
But still, she remains amazingly sweet.
Such a cuddlebug.
Such a ticklish baby.
Such a hilarious belly-laugh.

She and Chloe are 2 peas in a pod.
For the most part.
Chloe loves feeding Lauren snacks. Gotta keep your eye on that girl!

Speaking of Chloe,
Operation: Toddler Bed is a major failure.
Failure is an understatement.
LEt's consider it more of a disaster.
Yes. That suits the situation much better.

She refuses her toddler bed now. She slept with us for one miserable, horrific night (which, I'll admit, definitely was nice for the time she was was awesome to lay there and watch her and listen to her breathe)... but for the most part, neither Chris and I nor Chloe are used to sleeping with each other and it was a disaster.

So where does that leave us?

In the pack&play in her room.
And really, she's much happier.
For how long? Who knows.
But she sleeps at night in there with some coaxing and so far, that's the best track record in a couple weeks.

See ya later.
I'm pooped.

Such an awesome blog. I love those girls and the stories you tell. They make me laugh...and get a little teary eyed. I miss them so much. I can't wait to hear their laughter and see them playing in our yard again. xooxoMOM/GIGI
