Monthly Photos: Month 10

Time seems to be speeding up now. My little 9 month old is already 10 months! But I am so thankful for these past 10 months. I feel like I am always reading things on blogs or other places about such heartbreaking stories of people losing babies, so I just feel so grateful for each month that I have had with this precious one. And what a fun age this is! Once again, this is my new favorite age. Let's she what she is up to...

Size: She was a little over 20 lbs. when she was weighed at the doctor's office a few weeks ago. She wears around 12 month clothing, and size 3 disposable diapers.

She is looking at a video on the Ipad - 1 second of being still, yay!

Likes: Being chased, dogs, crawling everywhere, feeding herself grapes (cut into pieces) and Cheerios, pulling up, stroller walks, turning book pages faster than you can read, chewing on shoes, opening and closing doors, and pulling out all the tupperware from the cabinet.

Dislikes: Naps sometimes...can't really think of anything else she consistently doesn't like.

Working on: We still try to teach her baby sign language for milk, more, and all done. No response yet.

Eating: She eats mostly puréed fruits and vegetables. However, her favorite foods are grapes, yogurt, and cheese. She is not a huge fan of green veggies, but will usually eat them when mixed with other fruits and veggies. She doesn't seem to like meat yet. In addition to baby food I nurse her 5 times a day.

Sleeping: Bedtime is between 7:00pm and 7:30pm. Sometimes she wakes up around 5:00am or 5:30am and will go back down after I feed her until 7:00am. Other times she wakes up between 5:45am and 6:30am and is up for the day. She takes a morning and afternoon nap. They vary in length from 30 min to 2 hours.

She has 6 teeth - 4 on top and 2 on bottom.

She is crawling everywhere up on all fours, no more army crawling.

She is pulling up a lot all around the house.

She babbles a lot. She said her first word, Dada, around 9 1/2 months. although she doesn't know what it means.

I don't know if I ever included this, but she drinks through a straw sippy cup. She has been doing this for a couple of months now. She couldn't do the regular sippy cups but could do the straw.

She has been very good lately about being dropped off for childcare at the church on Sundays and when I work out during the week. The teachers are all so sweet and take great care of her.

She is a very easy going and happy baby. Especially in the evening we have so much fun with her. She laughs when we chase her around the house. She loves for you to come get her. She will crawl away but stop and turn around to make sure you are still chasing her. I thank God all the time for such a sweet and wonderful gift!

What a little beauty! It sounds like she is so fun this month. She sounds very similar to Alidia in many ways. Love that she likes being chased around the house! :)
