People are always asking what Alyssa is doing these days. I try not to blog about her too much so people don't get bored and annoyed with her, but it's been a few weeks, so here's another update.
Alyssa turned 10 months old last week. She is working on tooth #8. Yes, that's a lot of teeth for only 10 months old. I think most babies this age only have about four. She's working on standing up on her own. She likes to pretend she's standing on her own, but will then press her tummy against whatever she's in front of to make sure she has balance. She'll stand for 2-3 seconds at a time, but then just sits down.
She can fit 5 pieces of dog food in her mouth. Probably more, but I'm getting there faster and faster. Mike actually built a box to put the dog's food and water in, so we can close it up when she's around. Sometimes we forget to close it, and she's over there trying to eat as much as possible or just splashing in the water.
She is obsessed with my computer, maybe because I'm always on it, so we got her a computer of her very own. Her favorite thing to do with it is just open and close it. Each time you close it, it says "Good bye" in a very sweet voice.
Last I posted, she was anemic. She'll be retested on Wednesday, and I'm hoping all is well. These iron drops are expen$ive! Her favorites are Macaroni 'n Cheese and Orange Juice. We finally found a sippy cup she likes, after going through about 5-6 different kinds, and she loves just sitting there and drinking like a big girl.
Anyway, here are some pictures of Alyssa and her new computer.
She still prefers my computer... go figure...
