where did the time go?

No time for a wordy post tonight, but I had promised some pictures and failed to deliver them before Charlotte turned 10 months (today). I'll post some words in a day or two, or next week... this week promises to be a busy one. In brief, Charlotte continues to be a complete joy (even when she screams at 2am). She has 4 teeth and a rapidly expanding vocabulary, both spoken and signed. She is the light in our world during some trying times we've faced lately.

Signing "cracker," her favorite food. I think she'd live on them if I let her.

At 9 1/2 months, she's unquestionably taller than the caterpillar. And I am getting worse at catching these photos on time.

Teeth! The first one erupted on 12/1, and the second on 12/13. As of 1/22, she now has a matching pair on top.

She absolutely loves to watch her B@by Signing Time videos. Her signed vocabulary now includes eat, drink, more, cracker, milk, baby, dog, all done, wash hands, and brush teeth. She says Dadad and Momom at appropriate times for us to believe she knows what she's saying, but also babbles those syllables frequently, so we're not entirely sure. She does say "Mba" to refer to our cat, Simba, and she sometimes says "daw" while signing "dog."

At 9 months, just a hair taller than her caterpillar.

She is getting so big! And 4 teeth? Wow. How are our babies slowly becoming toddlers? Looking forward to a wordy update, but the picture post will tide me over for now. C is just adorable! And I hope the trying times you mentioned are soon behind you!
