Today is Tomoe’s 10 month birthday. Just 2 more months until she’s a year old! I can’t believe how fast the time has gone. Soon, she won’t be a baby anymore, she’ll be a toddler.
I don’t have any pictures this time, but I do have some news. Tomoe took 2 steps while standing up without any support. While it’s not quite walking, it’s a step in the right direction!
More than ever, she’s reaching up whenever we walk past her, and we definitely know what she wants. She wants to be picked up. She’s also laughing a lot these days. Very happy baby! One thing that I taught her is “high 5.” I’ve been working on it for the past week, and tonight, she finally raised her hand when I said it, and she hit my hand. She’s learning. This is a very important time to make sure that she hears as much language as possible, and not baby talk. She’s been forming “words” with 2 or so different syllables, but hasn’t knowingly said anything yet. She has accidentally said “Japan” and “yellow,” though.
Tomoe is loving books. We try to read to her every night with one of her books, and she really enjoys it. She also has plenty of toys to keep her occupied, and she will play on her own quite often.
Hopefully, I’ll have plenty of pictures later this week.
