Molly turned 10 months old yesterday. This post is a day late because most of yesterday was spent at the hospital waiting for N to be released after having his appendix removed on Monday and then getting N settled at home. Oh, and watching the Olympics. I would also like to point out that this was N's second time at the hospital this month! Let's hope Miss Molly does not inherit Daddy's inclination to spend time in hospitals due to his own actions or those out of his control.
Anyway, back to Miss Molly...
Molly has been pulling herself up on everything. She prefers things that are her height (dog bowls, coolers, etc), but really will try anything. She has taken several steps while holding on to something, but no solo steps just yet. Which is fine by me. N started the last three weeks of his paternity leave last Thursday and we were hoping to use this time to childproof the house. Well, since he can't lift more than 5 lbs for the next three weeks those plans have been pushed back a bit. I'll do what I can, but since I'm 100% on Molly duty there's only so much free time (aka nap time). Right now I really should be doing something around the house while she's down for her second nap. Well, I am technically in the middle of laundry. That will have to count.
No more developments on the teeth front. She still just has the bottom two, but man can she make those work for her. She will pick up a single cheerio and then bite it in half with her two bottom teeth. It's pretty cute. On Monday night she woke up in the middle of the night (this was the night N spent in the hospital after surgery) and this is very abnormal for her. Her teeth with bugging her so I'm thinking the next ones are getting ready to pop through. She's been sucking on her lips and chewing on her fingers (and anything else she can find). The focus seems to be on her top gums so I'm thinking those might be next. We'll see.
I've signed Molly up for fall semester at The Little Gym. Classes start up the last week in August. This is also where I've scheduled her first birthday party to take place. I'm sure class will get her walking in no time.
OK, need to try and get a few more things done while Molly is still napping and N is content.
