Well, my baby is officially past the 10-month mark. And it makes me sad. I wish I could get my teeny tiny newborn back for just one day. But just one. She was a tough newborn. So I'm putting off the wedding recap for a few more days to recap my little princess instead.
Weight: Find out next week
Length: I'll have to measure
Diapers: Officially into size 3s, but I think maybe I'm just being picky, and needing them too roomy. Still, I'm not going back to size 2s now.
Feeding: Finally FINALLY you are eating half decently lately. You typically love your morning and nighttime cereal. You're iffy at times about your daytime meals, but usually you eat them okay. You typical feeding day for the past couple of weeks is this: Morning cereal (2 tbsp of rice cereal mixed with 1 tbsp of wheat, raspberry and yogurt cereal - the past couple of days I've been giving actual yogurt along with it), a couple of ounces of bottle in between each meal, half jar of veggies and half fruit at lunch, same at supper, and same cereal at night, minus the real yogurt.
I haven't seen you gag in awhile, but I've been sticking to a lot of the same things that you seem to either like, or are impartial to: creamed corn, sweet potatoes, squash, carrots. You seem okay with most fruit, and love custard. You also love your puffy treats and Baby Mum Mums. You love sucking on bottles and sippy cups, but it seems more of a soothing thing than drinking - since you never want to actually tip them back when you're on the go. You'll eat little pieces of toast or bread, or random things I give you to try. Oddly enough, you love lemon. I gave you one expecting a sour face, and got one, but you kept grabbing for it and putting it in your mouth and the faces stopped.
Sleep: I don't think you've slept through the night in awhile, but you're still usually up only once. Twice if you know I'm really tired. And you'll wake up right at 11-12 when you know I'm trying to go to bed early. Usually you still nap twice a day, but sometimes you'll miss a nap. You now get your bedtime bottle in bed, most of your middle of the night bottle in bed, and all your nap bottles in bed. I fear I'm starting a bedtime/bottle addiction, but I'll deal with that later. At least you seem to be drinking more milk. You usually go to bed very shortly after 7pm, and are up around the same time in the morning. You still go back to bed through the night without a fight every time. I love it.
Talking: You growl, you babble, you say 'dada' and 'mama', but it sounds more like 'mum mum', and you squeal and scream a lot more lately. You've got a ton of happy sounds. Your favorite sound is the one you make when you put your wrist over your mouth and move your fingers. You also love it when you make noise and I move my finger against your mouth to make a funny noise. You're quite the girl.
You hate going for long car rides lately. You whine or cry for a lot of the trip.
You have you first friend / sister type thing, boyfriend's daughter. You've spent a lot of time together lately and are starting to play together nice sometimes - except she's still bigger and rougher, and doesn't like to share so far. Still, you seem to idol her and follow her around. You always want to do what she's doing. It's pretty adorable.
You're still a pretty easy baby. You might whine a lot, but for the most part you can have free roam of the apartment without getting into trouble or getting hurt. You still fall on your head every now and then, but much less often. You can pull yourself into the standing position now against furniture, and you walk very wobbly when we hold your hands. It looks funny because you're so small. I don't really think you'll walk before your birthday, but I wouldn't mind if you did.
Overall, you kill me with cuteness every day. Adjusting to motherhood was hard at first, but I could never go back.
