10months

Avery is 10 months old! Technically, she hit the mark last Thursday but there was no photo shoot. Instead, that day started with the realization that both of our sites were down. Then there was a meeting to rush to and the deadline we were both crunching on. Avery went on a nap strike. It was one of those days.

But Friday was better. She slept through the night, I resolved our site issues (silly bandwidth!) and we were able to squeeze a few photos in. (I finally had to retire the 3-6 mo. white onesie. And now she’s wearing a shirt…a shirt! With no snaps at the bottom!)

Pointing is one of Avery’s favorite activities these days. Lots of E.T. moments.

Also, after predicting it for months, she finally cut her first tooth (and I just spotted the second one last night!).

With a combination of teething, separation anxiety and a bit of a cold, we have had some of our most challenging (and sleep-deprived) days these last few weeks. When you’re in the thick of it, it can seem impossibly overwhelming and throws your work-life balance for a real loop. But then, late at night when the house is quiet and she’s been asleep for a few hours, I find myself flipping through photos of her on my phone. Photos that make me smile and fill my heart with joy and before I know it, I’m missing that little girl who makes dinosaur sounds, thinks Bailey’s bowl is a wading pool and sticks her finger in my nose. Perspective is a powerful thing and although there are trying days, I know it’s not that bad. I know that we are lucky.

Happy 10 months little lady!
