10 Month Miss

Dorothea Loves:

  • Pulling Henry's hair. Her face lights up when she sees he is close, his head is within reaching distance and he is turned away. Best time to strike.
  • Looking at books. Whenever I pull a book out now she closes her right hand and sticks out her little pointer to point at the book along with mommy. 
  • Sneaking into Grammy/Henry's bathroom, and holding onto the step stool. Usually with a little dancing.
  • Pulling up on things just the right height and dancing around.
  • Pulling DVDs and books out of the shelf and anything she can off the shelf or table.   

  • Any and all tubes and containers of lotion or other like products. I took sunscreen away from her the other day and I'm sure neighbors thought I was cutting off her hand.
  • Being messy. She is a pretty messy little eater. 
  • Mangos, peaches, rice cakes, avocado, cottage cheese, chicken and any time she can get a taste of something cold and sweet like ice cream.
  • Mommy. She is definitely a mommy's girl. A little more so than mommy would like, in fact. 
  • Being outside, especially on the grass.
  • Watching Henry sword fight, wrestle or anything like it.
  • Talking.
  • Remote controls.
  • Singing. Especially "On The Good Ship Lollipop" My mom sings it to her and she just loves it for some reason more than any other song.
  • Crawling from wherever she is to welcome Grammy home. I think it's because she hears the grage opening and knows that means she's back whereas Johann comes through the front door so you can't hear it. 

  • Playing with the magnets on the refrigerator. 
  • Hitting things-bongos, xylophone, etc. 


Dorothea Does Not Love:
  • Having things taken away. At. All. Ever.
  • Sleeping in her crib.
  • Being put down on the ground.
  • Nap time.
  • Traveling in the car. Though she has mostly gotten use to it now.
  • Being held by strangers or people who are not mommy or daddy and sometimes grammy. 
  • Having her diaper changed.
  • Anyone going into the bathroom and closing the door. 
  • Vacuuming. 
  • Loud noises.
  • Teething. 

Happy 10 months, Dorothea! =)
