On June 30th, you turned 10 months old! I cannot believe how big you are getting and how fast this precious time is going. When you are in the seasons of sleepless nights and then keeping a constant eye on what you are getting into, it feels like time is going soo slow. But looking back on these past 10 months, it has gone by in the blink of an eye.
This month we went swimming, to the beach and mommy and daddy went to charleston to celebrate our 4 year anniversary.
You love the water once you warm up to it, but bathtime isn't your favorite time of day! We are still working on it though!!
Your schedule has changed slightly and it's only changed because YOU changed it!!
You wake up at around 6:30 now and nurse. Then we have some play time and have breakfast at about 8:00.
For breakfast you normally have something fruity puréed, followed by whatever fruit I have on hand to eat with your fingers.
Naptime starts at about 8:30 (or around two hours after you woke up). On a good napping day, it last for about an hour and a half.
When you wake up we have playtime or run errands and you nurse at 11.
Lunch is around 12-12:30. You eat something orange or green! Whatever color you don't have at lunch you have for dinner. I also have been mixing a multi-vitamin and probiotic with your puréed lunch. You are a master sippy cup with straw drinker and love water!
We follow lunch up with puffs or another little finger food snack.
Your second nap is about 3 hours after you woke up from your first nap and it lasts about an hour and a half as well. I have picked up the habit of nursing you before nap time.
The afternoon is when we normally go out and do something fun. Like go for a walk, go to the park, pool, or go visit the grandparents! You nurse again at 3.
Between 5:30 and 6 is dinner time. It's normally little lighter than lunch. We do whatever color veggie and fruit you didn't have for lunch and maybe a couple grapes or something with your sippy.
Bathtime is around 6:30. You don't really enjoy the bath!! We got a giant inflatable rubber ducky bathtub to transition out of the 4moms tub. You didn't really enjoy it. But it's great for travelling.
So we then tried out a bath seat and you like that a lot more! Now, this seat isn't sold in the US so I had to order it on amazon from some crazy country but I literally watch you like a hawk and even hold you in it sometimes. I never leave your side or really let go of you so it works for us!
I nurse you to sleep after your bath and you are normally asleep by 7!
You are still in size 3 diapers and wear 6-12 month clothes. The 12 month clothes are still a little big on you! You weighed 18 pounds and 10 ounces (I think) at your last doctors appointment and are in 50th percentile for weight and height and 70th for head circumference!
You pull up on everything and try to climb up and down whatever you can! You have taken steps while holding our hand and have stood by yourself for a second!!
You love to eat and tried chicken and noodle this month!! You love them! But your favorite food is puffs...of any flavor! We have to hide them from you at mealtime or you will freak out until you have them!!
You can say "Ma Ma", "Da Da", "Na Na" really well! You try to say "Doggie" and "Banana" when you see Sadie or a banana!
This phase of your life has been so much fun. You are learning something new everyday and playing so well by yourself and with others. It's so much fun to watch you grow. We love you so much and are so so proud of you.
