It begins. . .

Our sweet Baby K is 10 months old now. 10 things about our little sweetie:

10. Karsyn finally has one tooth. We are hoping that a few more follow soon, but for now, she nibbles pretty good with her single pearly white.

9. Karsyn says "Mama" and "Dada," although I'm not quite sure she directs those words at us yet. She thinks they are a game in which to say the wrong name at the wrong time... for instance. When I am prompting her to say "Mama," she quickly pipes up with "Dada" and visa-versa.

8. Karsyn loves to eat! Her favorite foods are the things on my plate. She is particularly fond of bread and cheese though.

7. Karsyn continues to light up when Seth walks in the room. She will follow him around all over the house.

6. Karsyn loves peek-a-boo and the various forms of this game that we play. Her little belly laughs of excitement are a joy to me!

5. Karsyn had her first ear infection this month. It was a sad day at the doctor, but she is bouncing back pretty well.

4. Karsyn loves to go in circles around the cocktail ottoman with as many stuffed animals in her hands as she can manage to hold. She will hold them by the tails to get more in her hands and when she drops one, she very carefully picks it up and finds a place for it within the tight grasp of her little fingers.

3. Karsyn loves for people to sing to her! I'm hoping this means she will have a love of music as the rest of the Cosper Crew does.

2. Karsyn loves to wave! When we are walking Seth to and from school, she waves at almost everyone we pass. Her little finger wave has changed this month to a full "elbow-hand" swing. She has figured out that when she waves at people, she almost always gets some sort of "cute" response and at least a wave back. And she is proud of herself for gaining so much attention!

1. Karsyn has been cruising around furniture for about 4 months now. I knew that if she had the confidence and know-how, she would be running around the house. Thankfully she had not made that discovery before she turned 10 months old (mommy was not ready for it). However, at 10 months, 1 week, and 3 days old she did! That's right, Karsyn took two steps on her own tonight. We did not prompt or encourage her in any way. She was holding on to a chair and walking around it and all of a sudden let go... she took a whopping TWO steps! She did this again later in the evening... 4 times total, 2 steps each time. We have not signed her up for any marathons yet, but I can say with confidence that it has begun!

Our little Karsyn Joy is such a sweetie and we feel blessed to have her in our lives!

I could tell on Wed. that she was getting ready to take those first steps. Lena was walking across the room at barely over 11 months.
