When she turned 10 months

I haven't been blogging for soooo long and I need to do quite a bit of catch up, simply because I want to remember those little things about Chloe.. So here is her 10 months update, even though it's already a month late :(

  • She got her second tooth!!! 3 weeks after the first one. 
  • She managed to pull herself up on her feet in her bath by holding the handles in the bath. I don't know if I've mentioned it here before but it always felt like she was trying to do things in her bath before to do them out of it... 
  • When we were at my mom's place she made some steps with my grandma's help. I have to say that I wasn't that thrilled about it... My sister has been studying for being a midwife, work in nursery etc, anyway, she told me that they don't recommend teaching them how to walk by holding their arms up because they won't learn how to walk normally without their arms up. I also read somewhere a week before to go to France that it was bad or they will always rely on us for everything.. So I decided to not do it and let her learn those things by herself... The only day I leave her alone the whole afternoon/day with my mom and grandma and they do that.. I was a bit pissed to be honest.. And also because they taught her something while neither me or Vadim where there... But anyway, what was done was done. 
  • However, with that little help she got she was pulling herself up much more on a bit of everything, mostly on sofas.
  • While we were at my mom's place she also said papa!! She used to say "papapapa" or "mamamama" before but we didn't count it as a word as she obviously was using it for everything and not for us. But she said it over there for her papa, that was soooo cute :) 
  • Her favourite game has definitely been Peekaboo this month!! She kept doing it all the time, with books, clothes, her bottle... whatever she could find :)


At home she would simply refuse to stay in her playpen, but she didn't mind playing by herself in the one at grandma's... It was better when outside but still xD 


She learnt how to drink from a straw a couple of days before that picture. She's always had a huge obsession for Starbucks cups since she was able to see properly. I have no idea how I gave her my obsession for Starbucks but apparently she has it too now ^^  Anyway, I let you imagine how happy she was to be able to drink out of mama's Starbucks cup :p
Ps. Don't worry, it was only water in it ;)

She used to crawl a lot backwards - I believe a lot of babies do before to crawl "normally". That time she crawled all the way backwards from her play area - which is next to her bed - until she got stuck under her bed

On her 9th months birthday, under a really British summer and visiting the new park next to our home -  Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park

She turned 9 months! - really nearly a month ago

Well it was already about 20 days ago, but..
I can not believe! We spend just as much time with her that she spent in my belly, how weird is that!

Here are all the "milestones" / progresses she made within this new month:

  • She started to speak!! She started by mixing all together "baba", "papa" and "mama". She then got better and better, but only on "baba" (which means bye bye for her I think) and "papa", that is just adorable when she speaks!! She's gonna be such a little chatter box!! Just like her Mama haha :p Sorry Papa :p  Now we can't wait for her to say those words with a real meaning, like to us :)
  • She clapped her fists to then clap her hands. She is now so good at it! She even does it when we ask her to do "Bravo", and most of the time - except if she plays shy - we don't need to show her.
  • And last but not least: she FINALLY got her first tooth!!!!!
I am insanely in love with that little bundle of joy!!

Sorry for this delay, I didn't realise I didn't post it - shame on me.

Maybe not the best picture from this week - not that there was any exceptional pictures actually xD - but the way she looks at her mobile... She loves it and I found it adorable how she smiles at it when I put her down in her bed for her nap, whether she is crying or not. On a little side note, I would play the music from this mobile on my belly almost every night during my pregnancy. I thought it would calm her every time she would hear it once born as it would remind her of this comfy and safe place where she was for 9 months, apparently it worked :)
