10 Months, That was Quick - Baltimore, MD - March 2011

Okay, so maybe it's that February was so short, but it feels like there has been no time since this month and last, but alas, our baby girl is already 10 months.

Here are her new stats:
Weight: 16 lbs (5th %)
Length: 26 1/2 inches (25th %)
Head Circumference: 42 centimeters (5th %)

She has 6 Teeth and the whole house is feeling it! We've taken a step back in the sleeping department. She is much more aware of the world around her these days, and we think that that combined with significant developmental milestones are the contributing factors to the fact that our sweet little girl has stopped sleeping through the night. We thought a couple of nights ago that we were on the road to recovery, but after last night, I'm not so sure.

She is pretty much moble through a combination of rolling, butt scooting, backwards crawling, and laying on her back and scooting which is her preferred method as it's the fastest, but it's my least favorite because she's now bald again on the back of her head... So SAD! She pulls up to standing and thinks she's big stuff when she does it. She growls and grunts with excitement and of course we cheer like she's won a 5K or something which only makes her more excited. She's also at a point where she enjoys playing for long stretches on her own which is nice for me with respect to keeping the house clean and laundry folded.

Swim class is going really well and we've signed up for the next session which will carry us pretty much all the way to when our pool opens for the summer. She loves to watch other kids and lately she's been a lot more interactive with them. Splashing in the pool with other babies, as well as sharing toys at play group.

Eating has gotten to be a lot more pleasant of a time at our house. Her diet is expanding and her apatite is getting bigger. She still has her favorites like yogurt and fruits, but with the addition of cheerios she's become much more open to eating a bite of something she's not too crazy about if there's a Cheerio close behind it. Also she's starting to partake in our big Sunday morning breakfast. She LOVES French toast and pancakes!

She is a joy to be around and her little personality is growing by leaps and bounds. It's amazing to me that in less than 2 months she will be a year old. I'm not sure I'm ready for that. but ready or not, here it comes!

Till next time,
Bon Voyage!
