It just seems like yesterday that we wrote about Berkley turning 9 months old. And I know I sound like a broken record when I say,"She is getting so big, so fast!" The last time we took her to the doctor she weighed a little over 20 lbs and she is still pretty tall.
For awhile, she wasn't sleeping through the night and not getting much sleep, but I think we have pretty much solved that problem. She still wakes up sometimes, but is pretty much asleep from 7:30pm-7:00am. We LOVE it! And so does she! She is so happy in the mornings! She is starting to make more sounds and it is ADORABLE! She has started saying what sounds like,"dadada" and sometimes "yeahyeahyeah". She still doesn't want to walk but that's ok. She gets around just fine by crawling. She is eating a lot more of the food that we do, and is loving it! She still loves fruit and pretty much anything sweet...and vegetables.

Berkley and her new "OH" face

Having fun with Daddy

Looking pretty

In front of the fountain at the Ogden Temple

Another "OH" face
Berkley is just changing before our eyes and doing new tricks on a daily basis. She has officially discovered her tongue and is enjoying all the new sounds she is making with it. Aside from her new found growl, she is making an O shape with her lips and sometimes like to stick her tongue out at the same time. She is also licking everything that she can.

This isn't necessarily new, but whenever she wants more of something we have given her (ie. ice cream) she screams if she doesn't get it right away. It was sort of cute at first because she was expressing herself and I knew what it meant. It is sort of obnoxious now, especially if we are in public. Instead of this nice, sweet, quiet baby we have this nice, sweet, screaming if she doesn't get what she wants baby. We are working on the sign language action for "more". Hopefully she will get it down soon.

She is also OBSESSED with the outdoors. We now have to either sneak out of the house or leave very quickly, because she races toward the door if someone even looks like they are going out. The other day I left the door open and she was between the door and me, and she looks at me, and then turns on a dime and races to the door. I would just leave it open, but our screen door doesn't latch and she can just push it open to two cement steps.

One fun incident that happened yesterday. Matt was at his mom and dad's to drop Berkley off before work and decided she needed a diaper change. Well it's no secret that Berkley HATES getting her diaper changed. She tries to get out of it every time. So Matt let her roll onto her stomach and crawl around for a second.....Bad decision Daddy....Berkley started to pee. She got pee everywhere. And much to her enjoyment, got to have a second bath that day.
