Ten Months: motion, direction, acceleration

I’ve got speed
That’s how fast I am moving
I’ve got velocity
That’s my speed and direction…
Motion, direction, acceleration…
They Might Be Giants, “Speed and Velocity,” Here Comes Science

She’s ten months old today! Two babies in our local friend group have their first birthdays today and tomorrow; I can’t believe it’s been nearly a year. She’s crawling, “cruising,” and has taken a first step. She eats real people food (she is going to loooooove birthday cake…she might’ve inherited her mama’s sweet tooth) and makes all kinds of sounds. She stands and claps her hands, and every now and then, if the mood strikes, she’ll blow raspberries on us.

Here are some photos from the last few months.

Mama and baby reading board book on couch

A rare snuggly moment in Maine. She’s always on the go, but will pause for a favorite book.

At book club in June. (The rest of us read Jo Walton’s excellent My Real Children.)
