The monthly baby update is back. We've skipped the past few months because I just couldn't keep up with another thing, but I'm ready to be back at it. Month 10 was just way too exciting not to write about.
Weight: It's been a month since we were at the doctor, but I'm guessing about 19 pounds.
Height: Again, a month since the doc, but I know you were about the 80th percentile. Welcome to the tall club.
Eating: You still have 4 bottles of formula a day, but we're working on eliminating the middle two and turning those into cups of milk. By working on, I mean we've done it a few times with little success. All in good time. You eat 2-3 meals a day with a few snack times peppered in. Some days you love food, some day's you're indifferent, but it's clear you enjoy feeding yourself.
Sleeping: We are down to two naps a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. You sleep from roughly 7:30pm until 7:00am, sometimes through the night, sometimes waking up a time or two.
Diapers: Size 3 Target brand or Pampers
Clothing: 9-12 month or 6-12 month clothing and pajamas. Still sneaking in to some 9 month tops and dresses but I think that's short lived.
Social: You are a complete ham and love when people make a fuss over you. You also love other babies and kids. You do NOT love when certain people try to hold you, but sometimes you go straight to strangers. It's hit or miss. You still love your momma the most and cling to me, but you're pretty content with Dad of course, and our close family members too. You are becoming more outgoing and show a real affinity to some of the babies we see every week at the library.
Likes: Eating "grown up" food, the dogs, climbing/pulling up on anything you can get your hands on, stand up toys, Little People toys, and when we make silly faces at you.
Dislikes: Riding in the car for long periods of time, sitting still.
Firsts: On June 23 you took your first steps! You walked a few times that night and have done it a few times sense then too. I know it will be no time before you're running around the house. First "real" meals. By real I mean sharing what the family has for dinner, as opposed to me having to prepare a baby friendly meal for you.
