Blakely's 10 Month Update

 Height: about 28 1/2 inches
Weight: 18 lbs 14 ounces
Head Circumference: about 18 inches
Vision: We are good in this department. Nothing to report
Movement: You are a wild woman in the crawling department. I will set you down in one room and in 5 seconds you'll be in another room. You are pulling up on everything. I think you will be walking in no time. Delainey is doing so great at helping keep dangerous things from Blakely. If she has something in her mouth she's not supposed to, D will yell Emergency! and pop it out of her mouth. She is such a great big sister.
Eating Habits/New Foods: Milk has changed a bit this month. My milk is starting to dry up so I am having to add in some bottles. I usually alternate between boob and bottle so I know you are at least getting 4 ounces every other feeding. I am feeding you 6 ounces at night, but you sometimes don't finish the bottle. As far as food goes, you eat everything! Breakfast: oatmeal, yogurt, pancakes, maybe some fruit. Lunch: deli meat, cheese, smoothie, pouch of some sort, left overs from the night before, cottage cheese. Dinner: whatever we are eating, pork, chicken, rice, noodles...anything we can cut into small bite size pieces. Cheerios are a new favorite snack and you had Chick-fil-a for the first time and are obsessed with it.
Sleeping Patterns: We've had a rough month of sleep. You have been sick or at least congested twice this month so you haven't been sleeping well. You have been getting up once or twice during the night to eat and then go back to bed. We have had quite a few sleepovers in Mom's bed which helped a little bit. Hopefully this month will be back to normal of sleeping through the night.
Sounds/Words: You are trying so hard to imitate us and repeat what we say. No words though just sounds. I will say all done and say Ahh with my mouth open to see if you are all done and you do the same when I do. It's so cute. You can wave, still do your signs well and can do the All done sign now. You are much more verbal when you don't get what you want. You stiffen your arms and legs and yell. It's pretty funny. We usually only see the temper tantrums when Sis takes toys from you.
New discoveries/accomplishments:
-You are a mad woman crawler
-You pull up on everything
-You celebrated your first New Year's Eve with a sleepover at Gammoe's house.
-You met Mickey & Minnie for the 1st time at Epcot.
-You started My Gym classes and love them. The forward rolls and flipping on the bar give you quite the worried face, but no tears so thats good.
-You went to your first circus
Places you went/Adventures: January was a little more laid back than December for us. You spent lots of time during the week at the YMCA. All the workers there love you and talk about what a great baby you are. We went to the circus. We went to Epcot & Animal Kingdom for a little family getaway. Helped Emily & Will pick a wedding venue and have just been laying low at the house enjoying time with each other.
Clothes: You are in 12 month clothes for the most part. Leggings and jeans are 12 months. We are in 12 month sleepers now. You have moved up to a size 4 diaper and have gained 2 lbs this month. Big B can eat some food! I feel like you are always hungry :)
Sister updates: Now that you are crawling, things between you have gotten fun. You crawl to wherever she is and play with her. It is so sweet until Delainey gets upset when you try to take her toy or mess up what she is doing. D is doing really well with you. We have figured out that you only really like to play with a toy for about 20 seconds so we count to 20 and usually by then you are done and D can take it to play with after. I love that I can leave you girls to play together for a few minutes while I get dressed and know you are ok!
