Emma's Tenth Month

This month, Emma started drinking her milk from her sippy cup. She has milk 5 times a day, and 2 of them are now from a cup. I plan to have her take all of them from the cup by the time she turns one and switches over to cow's milk. She can now drink from the sippy all by herself. She said her 4th word, kiss, and kisses us all the time. She also started hugging and kissing her stuffed animals. She threw/pushed a ball for the first time. We discovered a fun place called Play Zone that we now go to every Wednesday for Emma to play with other kids. They have soft play mats and toys for her to let loose. We still go to storytime, too. She waves at everyone and everything, especially at Daddy when he comes home from work. She can stand alone for about 30 seconds and walk when you hold her hands or when she has her cart to push. She can bend down and pick things up with great balance, too. She learned on her own to put her purse on her arm-she sticks her arm straight out so it doesn't fall off! She loves jewelry and shoes, too, so we will have trouble when she is a teenager! Her favorite book and song is Personal Penguin, she loves reading books and if she is upset, all Daddy or I have to do is sing that song and she calms down and smiles. She can turn pages all by herself and points at the pictures. She points to anything that catches her eye and to things that she wants. She still has just 2 teeth on the bottom, but I feel them on top so they may come soon. Her smile is so cute with her little teeth sticking out! We have been teaching her a few signs since she was about 4 months old, and she now can do the sign for milk. She recognizes more, eat and ball, but can't do them yet. All three of us went to Indiana for a visit for my 29th birthday and to apartment hunt in Indy. We didn't think we would be moving yet, just wanted to be ready when the house sold. When we got back, we had an offer and we close on October 4th! We are moving to Fishers, IN on October 1st. We will see the Pediatrician one last time next month before we move, but she didn't see him this month. She has been so healthy, she has never been sick. We can't wait to move back home and spend more time with our families!
