10 Month Milestones
Yesterday was MJ’s 10 month birthday. Sadly, the day got a little lost in the chaos of our return to Miami, an out of town friend visiting, our air conditioning breaking AGAIN and the fact that my mother called me up to say that she (MJ, not my mother) may have swallowed a magnet over the weekend (more on that later). So , with n o further ado, here is the list of milestones for 10 month olds which I pilfered from Stacie again, and I believe she took from What to Expect.
