Since I did an "Almost 3" post for Annika I figured that I should do an almost 10 month post for Annabel.
I got all of my milestones from a Milestone Chart at BabyCenter.
I'm going to start with milestones for 9 months since that's what she is until the 22nd of this month.
Stands while holding onto something
Yes, Annabel is our expert stander
Jabbers or combines syllables
We have lots of dadadadas going on lately
Understands object permanence
Not so much on this one, she doesn't seem to get when things are "stuck" and yanks on them, so she's getting there.
Cruises while holding onto furniture
Nope, not yet, she can stand holding onto a chair or the couch but I haven't seen her "cruise" yet.
Drinks from a sippy cup
A big NO on this one. Totally and completely refuses!!
Eats with fingers
Another big NO!! Why feed herself when Annika will run over to help her?? I'm going to have to get her to stop so Annabel can be slightly independent.
Bangs objects together
Yes, all the time!
Plays patty-cake and peek-a-boo
Not yet but she does laugh when I try!
Says "mama" or "dada" to the correct parent
I'm glad this is considered an "advanced skill" because she doesn't do this one at all yet.
The only thing on the 10 month old milestone list that she has totally master is crawling with her belly off the ground. She's been doing that for almost 2 months now, she's an expert crawling machine!!
