10 months old! Oh my goodness!



Really, 10 months ago at 2:34 in the morning our gift was finally given? 10 whole months? I sang Caroline Grace the Dixie Chicks "Lullaby" as I rocked her to sleep tonight. I remember singing and singing that refrain aloud and in my head as I pushed and pushed and pushed.

These pics were taken yesterday and today. Kev just scanned the last several posts and said "We have a darn cute baby." Indeed we do. I am so, so, so grateful for this gift finally given. I love you, Caroline Grace.

(And I love that you're sleeping soundly in your crib at the moment... I'm a bit sobered by the realization that I haven't slept through the night in 10 straight months.)

Ohhhh my.....

I clicked on that beautiful picture on top - showing her new teeth. What I didn't expect to see were all those bumps along her entire gum line. The 3 of you will be very busy cutting teeth for the next couple of weeks. Good news is - it will be over soon.

Blessing to you all.

we hadn't blown up the picture so we didn't know... but this explains a lot! the last three or so days have been ROUGH. nights especially. frequent waking. constant nursing. bizarre screaming outbursts after happy playing. weirdness around eating. we thought maybe she was getting sick or something, but after we looked at the pic close up...yup... bumps all along top and bottom. aie.

next three weeks? as in... mid terms... very funny, very funny.

i realize it sounds funny that we had to blow up the pic to know. caroline doesn't let us get a close look at the inside of her mouth usually. she locks her jaw when we try. for some reason!

Happy 10 months, Caroline Grace! What a blessing to your family. Here's a toast to the day that will come, some day, when you all get to sleep through the night!
