River - 10 months - DC/ Virginia Newborn/ Child/ Family Photographer

10 months??? Already???  Where is the time going?  So she still crawls and pulls herself up to stand, but now she cruises on furniture.  Nothing new really.  She still only has 2 teeth on the bottom and still no hair.  Oh wait!  How could I forget.  She started waving to us too.  It's the cutest thing to watch her to do it because she almost seems amazed at herself and will stare at her hand for a few minutes while she's doing it.   Just as we get excited to see the new things she's been doing, she gets even more intrigued.
Also, I pretty much stopped breastfeeding and she now drinks out of a straw cup (I decided to skip over the sippy cup).  I really didn't want to stop nursing but at her 9 month checkup we found out that she did not gain a single ounce.  And her Dr was a little worried so I started feeding her in a cup and she drank so much more!  I couldn't believe it.  So it made me a little sad to think that for three months she wasn't getting the milk she needed to grow.  She's so much more chatty now and happier.  I guess a full stomach will do that to you.  So now we have to catch up on 3 months of lost time and I'm trying to feed the heck out of her.  haha  She also prefers solids instead of baby food.  So I started giving her cut up bits of food but it worries me since she has only 2 teeth.  Anyway, that's enough of an update.  Here's my sweet River - who is her namesake - and never sits still like a river.  haha

River...9 Months...DC/ Alexandria/ NoVa - Family/ Child/ Newborn Photographer

I can't believe she's already 9 months. She is a constant moving target which makes my photo sessions with her more of a workout than a photo session. It's amazing that I even caught this shot.
Here are a few more that made the cut.
