10 Months Old - Let the Crawling Begin

Today, Magda is 10 months old. To celebrate she spit up on my face (nearly made it into my mouth, too) and barfed for the first time ever when she had some trouble clearing something from her throat. She also had her first bit of whole wheat pasta and greatly enjoyed the fresh batch of pearsauce (like apple sauce, but made with pears) that I made for her this afternoon.

In the locomotion department, Stepan was playing with her on the floor of the bedroom and she actually maneuvered herself onto her hands and knees and crawled forward an inch or two. With subsequent attempts she was actually making forward progress, but was scooting along on her belly. I think it's time to invest in a heavy duty vaccum! The idea of the roomba appeals, but I think something more industrial would better suit our dirt and hair.

She is also starting to pick up baby sign. She's wonderful at waving hello or goodbye and she's been doing the sign for more for several weeks now. The only problem is that she thinks the "more" sign means "water". I think I've gotten her sign corrected, but she still does "more" first when she wants water. She thinks it's funny when I grab her hands and tell her, "that's not water!". That's almost guarenteed to get a giggle out of her.
