TEN Months!!

Age: 10 Months

Birthday: January 15, 2013

Weight: 16 Pounds 6 Ounces

Height: 28 1/2 Inches

Sleep: You take two naps during the day that are about 2-2 1/2 hours. Sometimes if I am lucky you will surprise me by sleeping 3 hours. Night time you still wake up about every two hours to eat. Nursing is the only way you will sleep, and on some occasions you will snuggle with daddy and go back to sleep. With daylight savings, its been pretty bad. We are all messed up. Teething has caused us some issues too where you wake up every 45 minutes and cry.

Bedtime: Since the time change, we put you down about 8/8:30. We feel it out for how cranky you are :)

Favorite Toy: Grow and Learn Puppy, my makeup, your purple ball, anything you can put in your mouth :) You love playing in the cabinets and getting pots and pans out. Straws too! You like playing with DVD cases and with Daddys bongos.

Clothes Size: 3-6 month, the last of your 3 month clothes and 6 month stuff

Diaper Size: Size 2

Are we really at 10 months!? I dont know how we have gotten here so fast and while its bittersweet to think you are almost ONE, this short time with you has been so fun! You have a personality to boot and you are one strong-willed child. You know what you want, you dont settle, and most of the time you do get what you want :) You are spoiled to say the least! I have noticed over the past month that you really feel as if you can conquer the world. There is nothing that stands in your way and there is nothing that stops you from doing what you want. You get so giddy over things you love. I love sitting and watching Baby Einstein with you in the morning because you just start screaming and pointing soon as it comes on. You love books and the other day when we were at Target, you started screaming, pointing and telling them to come here! It was so cute! You are ever evolving and its a blast to watch! My favorite this past month has been you yelling  "Dadda" all the time and all day long! You havent wanted to say Momma much but it sure is Dadda all the time :) I think it melts his heart too :) I am so looking forward to this next month with you and Christmas. I know its going to be so fun to see lights, Christmas, presents and all the holiday cheer all over again in your eyes. Just wait for whats up a head. Although, I might be crying my eyes out that my baby will almost be turning ONE a few weeks from Christmas. What a journey its been, but I could not imagine our lives without you. You make us complete. You make me complete. I am so happy and so thankful I get to be your mommy. You are perfect in every way imaginable!!

I love you always and forever,
