Lainey 10 Months

Lainey Bear you are 10 months old! I was thinking back to your first few months and how difficult things were with so much crying and tummy issues and waking up all the time. You have come so far. Even though you get fussy at times, overall you are such a good baby. Especially when we are out and about. You are so good in the Bjorn or are happy to ride in the stroller or the cart and not make a peep. You are great in the car. You get more adorable every day and it is so nice to have a content baby!

Size: I don't know your exact stats but at an appointment a couple weeks ago you weighed 17 1/2 lbs. and were 29 in. long. You wear 6-12 month clothes and size 2 diaper.

Likes: Grabbing things. You want to grab everything. If we are sitting at a table with you in our lap you will reach out your long arms and swipe up everything in a second. You still like doing v ups. Mirrors provide lots I entertainment for you. You like baths and kicking your legs like crazy while Cambry fusses at you to stop splashing her. You put everything in your mouth. Well, everything except food. Finger food is where you draw the line. But more on that later.

Dislikes: You still aren't a fan of tummy time but are tolerating it a tiny bit better. And interestingly enough you are off reflux meds. We tried increasing your dosage twice but both times it upset your tummy. Then we tried a different medication and it made you throw up. So we decided to try no meds and it has been going well. Reflux doesn't really seem worse and your tummy seems to be doing better. 

Working On: We are really working to get you to put weight through your arms so you can get in the crawling position. You are slowly making progress at therapy. You are sitting great and rolling a little more. You have been a little more vocal this past week, but mostly cooing and not babbling. We are trying to teach you to drink through a straw. You can sometimes suck up water, but you discovered how to blow bubbles with it so you think that is way more fun.

Eating: You take 5 or 6 bottles a day. Sometimes you like purées and sometimes you don't. If we try to feed you puffs you get this disgusted look on your face, keep your lips locked, and push it away. You will eat a book page but GET THOSE PUFFS OUT OF HERE. Your second tooth just popped through on the bottom.

Sleeping: You go down around 7:30 and wake up between 6:30 and 7:00. Some nights you don't wake up at all but others you wake up once (or more) and we give you the paci and you go back to sleep. Sometimes you can find it yourself. You usually take 3 naps a day of varying lengths.

You are our sweetheart and we love you so much. I love your wild hair and your little dimple that you have way on the side of your right cheek. I still can't tell what color your eyes are. Maybe a hazelish brown. Happy 10 months sweet girl.
