10 months old!!

Rosalie is 10 months old now, time just flies! She is so hard to get good pictures of, she does not pose for me anymore. She is just such a fun little baby.Getting into her shelves in her room,
handing me the sticker and laughing when I try to keep it on,
trying to jump off the chair,
trying to climb and get things that she is not supposed to get,
and just pretty much laughing at my struggle to get her to hold still are all the things I had to deal with while trying to get a good picture. Silly Girl!

Here are some of the things she is up to lately:
-crawling faster than ever and getting into absolutely everything
-she loves to pull things off of the shelves
-she loves to eat a lot, and loves trying new foods
-some favorites are: mac n cheese, strawberries, waffles, bananas, grapes, cantaloupe, cereal of all kinds, frozen yogurt, cafe rio pork but no other meats, and much much more
-she loves patticake
-she combs and brushes her hair, so cute
-she waves at everyone, but only if she wants to
-she snuggles with us and everything she thinks is soft
-she feeds her dolls bottles and snuggles them
-she dances, even when there is no music if she is really excited
-she is really close to saying "dog"
-she says mama and dada but not to call us over or anything, she is not verbal, but she knows what things are
-if I ask her where is the dog, duck, frog, etc she can point it out or give it to me
and lots of other things I just can't think of at the moment

Rosalie's bows

I just can't seem to keep them in her hair, every time I put them in, this is what I get. This is my life lately, so cute!

Glad to have these smiles back

Last week was quite crazy.
We battled RSV starting Sunday night. Rosalie started wheezing pretty bad by Monday, and I took her to the Dr. early Tuesday morning and he told me exactly what I did not want to hear. Luckily her RSV wasn't too bad so she didn't have to go to the hospital, but it was not responding to breathing treatments, so she had to tough it out on her own.
We were planning to leave for California on Thursday and decided to go through with the plans hoping that the beautiful weather would do her good. The drive was a little tough for us, Rosalie normally is very sweet and just sleeps through it all, but she woke up in a fit. I ended up holding her in my lap for a couple of hours towards the end of the ride. I know it is not the safest, but it was the only thing that would calm her down, and we really wanted to arrive sooner rather than later. We got there late and greeted Grammy and Pops and the men gave Rosalie a blessing, her wheezing had gotten a bit scary. We gave her a bath with this bubble bath for colds and it helped soothe her.
She was a lot better the next day, not quite herself, but we took her to the beach and she went on swings for the first time. She loved them. She was laughing so hard and enjoying them, and I'm pretty sure she forgot she was sick and not feeling great. Saturday her wheezing was completely gone, and now she just has a cough. We love our little monkey!
We spent a lovely Valentine's day with Linda and Rick, Rosalie got a cute new outfit as her gift, and then we decided we would leave late that night so Rosalie could sleep on the drive home.
We were about 1 and 1/2 hours away when we heard a weird sound from the car and had to pull over. A pipe connecting the muffler to the engine had fallen off the car and so we had to call Sean's parents to come and get us, and have a tow truck pick up the car. It was quite an ordeal and I think it will get it's own post later. Luckily everything worked out and we are now back in Utah.
