10 Months Old

Oh Sayler my are 10 months old my tiny.  And you have totally come into your own.  You most certainly have your own personality and I must say I am totally smitten with you!!!  Here is what you have been up to this month:

  • You are still in a size 3 diaper and wear 9 month and 12 month clothes.
  • You sleep from 7pm to 7:30am every night.  You are a great sleeper for sure.  We took a trip to Little Rock last week and you didn't skip a beat even sleeping in your pack n' play at the hotel.  You slept the whole night and I was amazed.  When you wake up in the mornings you don't cry or yell for Mommy to get you at all  You just lay there and suck your thumb (your BFF) and wait for someone to come get you. Opening your bedroom door in the morning and seeing your HUGE smile when you see me is the best part of my day.
  • You eat table food almost exclusively.  You love:
    • carrots
    • green beans
    • mandarin oranges
    • grilled chicken
    • chicken nuggets
    • toast
    • grilled cheese
    • puffs
    • yogurt bites
    • yogurt
    • hot dogs
    • waffles
    • pancakes
  • You drink water from a sippy cup and are doing great with it.  You will have no problem transitioning off of your bottle to a sippy cup.
  • You are standing on your own for 3-5 seconds at a time.  You could stand longer, but once you realize you are standing on your own you sit right down.  I know you will be walking sooner rather than later.
  • You can wave hi and bye, do arms up, clap when someone says yay, play peek-a-boo, give kisses when asked to, and blow kisses.
  • You are starting to throw little tantrums when you don't get what you want or when Mommy or Daddy tells you no.  You will sit back on your buns and look at us and then do this fake cry to see if any one will pay attention to you or give in and let you do what you want.  We try our hardest not to laugh but it is hard.
  • You smile and laugh all the time.  Whenever Mommy or Daddy walk into the room you give the biggest smile and it melts our hearts.
  • You love to play on Mommy and Daddy's bed and jump and go crazy in all of the pillows.
  • You are starting to get attached to your strawberry blankie.  We take it with you to Ms. Dana's for your nap time, and whenever you see it lying on the floor you go over to it and lay down on it and suck your thumb.  It is so sweet.
  • You love playing with blocks and knocking them all down when Mommy stacks them up.  But you love nothing more than Mommy and Daddy's cell phones or computers.  You are on a mission to get to them whenever you see them.  Mommy usually gives in and lets you gnaw on her phone.  Daddy tries to take his case off and give that to you...but it doesn't usually work and he will give in and give up his phone too.  You kind of have us wrapped around your finger.
  • You have discovered the baby in the mirror looking back at you and you give her kisses and smile at her.  It is so cute to see you so curious about your own reflection.
  • We still can't get a decent picture of you to save our lives.  Every time the camera comes get all serious and focused on what we are doing and the smile goes away.
We fall deeper and deeper in love with you every day my sweet pea.  Every day with you is my favorite day no matter what else has happened.

I love you so much it hurts baby doll...
