10 Months

Today, my baby turns 10 months old.  Not sure when that happened.
Yesterday, we had Baby Dedication Day at church.  We proudly proclaimed that we will raise our child in Christ, not just in church.  What a bittersweet day it was.

 Now for the boring stuff:

Diaper - Size 3, until we run out.  Already bought 4's for at night and when the others are all gone.

Weight -  20 pounds.
We went for her 9 month check up almost a month ago and she did great.  No shots, just her finger pricked and she NEVER cried. Not one peep. She just watched the lady the whole time.  Her ears were clear and everything is right on schedule.  We go back in August for her 1 year visit.

Clothes - Mostly all 12 months.

Sleep - She goes to bed usually about 8 every night and gets up anywhere from 6-7:30, depending on the day. She still naps quite a bit during the day.

Activities - She finally learned to crawl on all 4's this month.  She still does her army crawl because it gets her there faster.  She is pulling up on everything and can stand alone but has taken no steps.  Big Sister was walking at 10.5 months so I think this one is on the same schedule.

She has 4 teeth, 2 on bottom and 2 on top.

She can clap and kind of wave byebye!
She can high-five and we are working on blowing kisses.

She squeals.  All the time.  Whether happy or mad or neither.
She LOVES the water.  Any form of it.  Bathtub, pool, lake, she doesn't care.

She has finally taken to a 'lovey'.  Since she doesn't take a paci (thankfully), I knew she needed something to comfort her, especially in the middle of the night.  I tried something before and she was not a fan.  Big Sister gave her one of her old animal blanket things so she now has 'Pink Elephant' who needs a new name.  She will snuggle with that and go right to sleep.  Thankful.

My mom pointed out that she grinds her teeth during the day. I had never noticed it, nor had the babysitter.  Until this weekend.  Oh my, that's ALL she does. I guess since her other tooth came in on the top and she has 4, she decided to chew on them.  It sounds awful.  Hopefully, we can overcome that SOON.

Eating - She takes a 7 ounce bottle about 3 times a day. She takes an 8 ounce bottle with cereal in it at night. She eats mostly all stage 2 foods.  She's been enjoying more table food these days.  She had a fever (thanks tooth) last week and was not a fan of any food.  She loves some apple juice in her cup with all this table food.

Thanks for keeping up with us!
