10 months! (a little late)

Dear Adeline Grace,

10 months? My baby girl is 10 months old? That just seem too hard to fathom.  We just keep falling more and more in love with you, sweet girl!

So what have we learned about you this month and what have you been up to in your tenth month of life?

Here are some of your firsts this month...
On 8.13.12, you snuck off and ate a piece of Boone's food!! (You've tried this two more times since this time.  You get a piece in your mouth and act super sneaky so that we won't catch you.) You are just so silly and you are into everything!!

On 8.20.12, you had your first kids' meal at a restaurant.  You had a Cracker Barrel veggie plate with carrots and green beans! (You ate a lot, but didn't quite finish it off.)

This month you also:

-started preferring table food over baby food

-started throwing your hands up when we say "all done" and then you clap and say "yay"

-you bring the phone to your ear and say "ho" for hello (you even do this with your hand when you hear a phone ring)

-you laugh when we laugh and laugh at all pictures of animals or real animals

-you play with toy cars and make a "brrrr" sound that Daddy taught you

-you started your new routine with Mommy's part-time job (part of the week with Mommy and part of the week at your Grandma's)

-started pointing a remote to the television and acting like you're changing the channel (cracks.us.up)

-started standing up more on your own, cruising, and acting like you are so over the crawling thing, ha!

-"pop wheelies" while crawling...you get up on your knees, put your arms up in the air and then plop them down hard and fast

-sit down from standing instead of just falling

-started "helping" and handing things to people; you give a big smile when you hear "thank you"

-hide things under the couch and then get down and look for them

-hugging and patting others including your stuffed animals (you say "awww" when you do this)

-standing in the bathtub and throwing a fit when we tell you no and sit you back down

-say "mamamama"!!

-say "mi" for milk, "muh" for more, and "cah" for cat

-feed Boone from your high chair

-play awesome by yourself with your toys when we are in the room

-cackle whenever there is anticipation

-take off your bow and hand it to us

-started eating cheerios and will pull your own bites out of a snack bowl we have for you

So what do you like and dislike?

You love…

-eating whatever we put in front of you that is "real food" (turkey, chicken, hummus and avacado are your faves right now)
-to talk
-being outside
-playing with your toys
-swinging and going for rides in your stroller
-people watching/making new friend
-filling up things and emptying them

You dislike…

-diaper and clothing changes
-sitting still (your 10 month photos show that!)
-being spoon fed

What are your sizes?

You are in 9 month sleepers and 9-12 month clothes.  Clothes are snug up top (due to your little, chunky belly) and your waist is small, so smaller pants fit you.  Except, your pants are starting to get short.
At your most recent check-up, your doctor called you "long and lean" although you still have all your sweet little rolls! You weigh about 18 pounds this month (25th percentile) and you are 27 3/4 inches long (50th percentile). 

What are your eating habits like?

You are still going strong with nursing! Yay! You nurse when you wake up (varies each day), around lunchtime (12 or so), in the afternoon (4 or 5) and at bedtime.  When Mommy is working, you nurse at all of these times, except your lunchtime milk is a bottle (which you can often take it or leave it!)

You are eating finger foods at every meal and will often also eat a pouch of apple sauce or baby food by self-feeding.  You love everything we put in front of you! We let you try everything we eat and you now expect the "real food".  You have also started snacking this month--usually in the afternoon.  You love cheerios and crackers.  For breakfast you often eat a gluten-free waffle or french toast and some fruit.  For lunch, you usually eat chicken or turkey (you love that!) and some veggies and fruit.  For dinner it's a mixture of whatever we are vhing.  You still love hummus and avacado.  You drink water from your straw sippy so well and can drink from any regular straw. You love to try a sip of whatever we are drinking!

How is your sleeping?

We've made bedtime later, girl! You are just too wound-up and excited still early in the evening, so we felt a later bedtime would work.  It seems to have! We start your routine around 8:30 or 9 and you are asleep by 9:30.  You wake up with about 11 hours of sleep.

You still wake once or twice a night, but go right back down with a little rocking and/or nursing.

So what makes you, you this month?

You are so much fun, baby girl! It amazes us how quickly you learn things and how intently you study the world around you! You take everything and everyone in with so much joy and excitement! You are turning into such a little person with so much personality and sweet mannerisms.  We just love you to pieces!
