The spring has been mild, albeit a bit rainy, here in Chicago. With the temperature sitting in the 60’s and 70’s and a variety of projects around the house it is hard to sit down to write. But I keep having adventures with the girls, so here is the latest.
The Cricket made it to the 10 month mark and is doing well. She is rocking her four front teeth and loves chomping on things (including parents’ fingers). She figured out the crawling gig and is all over the house. Here’s the most common view I get most days.
She is very curious about the world around her and actively seeks to engage with her surroundings. That’s a nice way to say she is “nosy” and “grabby”. And she should be at 10 months old! It is tricky dealing with her sticky fingers, though. As most of you parents know, they are so fast and grab onto things with no warning. Sweetie is learning to deal with the curious little critter. Unfortunately she usually just snatches whatever thing the Cricket has grabbed, not always the best example.
Things are getting interesting with having Cricket mobile. While she is pulling herself upright on chairs and parents and things, she is not yet walking. Hopefully (but unlikely) she will hold out and give ole’ Dad a break. Official summer is just around the corner, we have an open summer schedule and the weather is beautiful. So our adventures continue.
