10 Months!!

Tuesday, August 11, 2015

Our Dearest Stella,
I can't believe I've started planning your first birthday party; it doesn't even seem real! I feel like you've just grown up over night. You have a tooth, are crawling all over the place, and you're so close to pulling up. You have also started to really show your temper if you're not getting your way; you're a little dramatic. We love you baby girl!

What you did this month:
  • You are weighing about 16 pounds and roughly 28 inches long.
  • You are wearing 9M and 6-12M clothes. You wear size 9M & 12M in pajamas.
  • You are wearing size 3 diapers.
  • You nurse about about 4-5 times a day--morning, noon, night, and once/twice during the night. And eat solids at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • You love eating food and really prefer to feed yourself. You're still eating some purees, yogurt, and pieces of food that we're eating. Your favorites are any (and all) carbs, yogurt, cracker, and chicken nuggets.
  • You take a morning nap around 10 for about an hour. Then you take an afternoon nap around 1:30 for about 2 hours.
  • You go to bed around 7:30 at night and you've been waking up around 1:30 and 6:00. If I'm lucky I can get you back down for an hour or so.
  • You haven't been sleeping well this month, at all. You're teething, like 3 teeth coming in, and it's caused a pretty bad cold.
  • You have 1.5 teeth. Ha! I feel like they keep poking out and then going back! But for sure one bottom tooth.
  • You're rolling over, sitting up, crawling, and pulling up to your knees!! You can even climb up the step from the den. 
  • You still preferred to be rocked to sleep. Although, I am trying to put you down and pat your back until you fall asleep; that doesn't usually happen.
  • You have also started sleeping with a Glowworm.
  • You and Wyatt are always together, especially since you can follow him around everywhere. He's even tried to pick you up a few times.
  • You've also become quite a jabber box. We're pretty sure you're saying kitty, which comes out "ki" when you see the cats and you're also saying "mamama".
  • You have enjoyed going to the park and swinging.
  • You visited with your Uncle Ryan, Aunt Jessica, and Cousin Charlie this month!!
