ten months

ten months
  • you weigh 17 lbs. and 6 oz.
  • you are 29.25 inches long.
  • you are in a size 3, or 2-3, diaper.
  • you are in a size 2 shoe.
  • you wear 6-12 month, and mostly 9 month clothes.  you're so long that most bubbles that snap at the bottom, you have outgrown, so in those you wear a size 12 month.
  • you take a morning and afternoon nap.
  • you have 3 teeth! 2 on the bottom, and 1 on top!
  • you are starting to stand on your own for several seconds at a time. and you can keep your balance squatting, too.
  • you have learned to hold something up to give it to me.  for example, the other day, your bow fell out of your hair, so you held it up high and called for me.  when i walked over to you, you handed it over to me.
  • you had your first taste of chocolate (a bite of chocolate cake), and it was definitely love at first bite!  :)
  • you love brushing your teeth!
  • your favorite book is "pat the bunny," but you seem to be interested in all books.
  • your hair has grown out a lot!  so much that i don't use headbands much anymore because it bunches your hair up in the front.
  • you LOVE being able to play with only your diaper on.  then later, if i try to dress you, you get mad.
  • you really love animals, especially our dogs, because you are mostly around them.
  • you are soooo good about going to sleep in your bed, and you started sleeping through the night around 07/12/10.  you go to bed around 8:30pm and get up around 6 or 7am.
  • you will sometimes respond to "no," and sometimes you won't.  :)  you're already pretty headstrong.
  • you love to scream, babble, spit/blow your lips, or anything else that will get you attention.
  • you love having bubbles in your bath at night, and lately, you've been trying to bend down and drink your bathwater. 
  • you can sit up by yourself from the laying down position, without having to roll over first.
  • you are so good about playing by yourself.  i try to get in the floor with you to play with you a lot, but you are good about entertaining yourself.
  • you are into everything, and your favorite thing to get into is the dog food.  i am constantly getting it out of your hands, if you get to it before i get to you.
  • you are soooo much easier to travel with, even if it's just a day out.  or maybe i'm just more confident taking you out?  either way, it's nice.
  • you are a great eater!  you still love your baby food out of the jar, but i am trying to give you more and more table food.  you love feeding yourself, but when you're really hungry, you just want the baby food so you can eat it fast!
  • you are still breastfeeding, but you don't really nurse on a schedule anymore.  it's gotten to be "on demand" nursing when we're at home.  i'm not sure if that's a good thing, or a bad thing, for the both of us.  :)  when we're out, you usually have an afternoon bottle.

It's hard to believe she is 10-months. It only seems like yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital! I love you baby girls!
