Oh my goodness, Maggie is standing on her own! She can stand all by herself for about a minute, it is so amazing. She can even bend down and up and again, and can correct her balance. She did it about three times yesterday, and I caught a couple pictures. Now I really think she will be walking soon, I'm sure she will this month. Only ten months old, and she's tiny! It is going to look so adorable and so funny to see such a little girl walking on her own.
She has also cut her first (two) teeth! They are the bottom front ones and they are adorable! They poked through the gums last week, and they just keep comin' up. She's getting more, too. Funny..it took ten months to get one tooth, and now they're all coming in.
I can't believe how much she is changing. It is so crazy! She can say Mama, Dada, Up, Jake (her second cousin who she LOVES) and mimics a lot of other words. She dances to music, waves bye-bye, and plays peek-a-boo. She is OBSESSED with soft things like pillows, blankets and clothing. She is constantly lying on blankets and pillows and loves to rub her face all over them. It is so funny because she constantly moving, and only stops to enjoy the feeling of something soft. We actually decided to put a blanket in her crib because she loves them so much. It has actually greatly improved bedtime. She likes to rub her feet against the blanket when I put her down. So cute!
Here's some pics of her standing (YAY!) and getting into the laundry basket (literally) to retrieve her treasure...laundry!
