A Cakes is 10 months old! She has grown by leaps and bounds this month and it close to walking. This blows my mind because H crawled for 2-3 months before even making attempts to pull himself up or walk.
H started school this past week which has been great for A & I. We actually get to spend a few house just the 2 of us on a consistent basis. I am really treasuring this time because I was not home with H while he was young so I was not the one to work with him on crawling and talking during the week. I am really just enjoying getting to know the day to day of her personality and watching that change.
Weight: 17 lbs and 1 oz so she has gained a few ounces this past month.
Sleep: She continues to sleep through the night! She is a great sleeper. The other day I put her down to sleep and she wasn't tired. I stood outside her door for a few minutes and watched her crawl around the crib, stand up and try to reach things. It amazed me that she wasn't crying. She entertained herself until she was ready for bed. H is almost 3 and still cries every night.
Talking: The usual Mama and Dada but I don't see it directed at either JJ or I purposefully yet.
Teeth: No new teeth. I think another top tooth is starting to make its way down because she is drooling a lot but it hasn't shown itself yet.
Eating: She still prefers the stage 2 baby food. I have been pretty lazy and the only solid food I have given her is bread. I plan on working on that this month.
Right or Left handed: Pretty much only uses her right hand.
Eye Color: Still blue. Pretty sure they are staying a deep blue with some hazel around the pupil.
Crawling: Last weekend she started to finally crawl off her stomach and within a day was pulling herself up and walking along couches and tables. My mom says that I didn't crawl long and I can see A walking soon because she does not like to be left out.
Nicknames: A Cakes, Baby (thanks to H), and Anns BaDans (thanks to my neice C) and now Strahan Jr because of the Strahan like gap between her front teeth
Bestfriends: She still idolizes H. If he thinks that something is funny she is laughing right along with him. Darby (our dog) is also her favorite. Oh man, if Darby comes anywhere near her, she gets the biggest smile and laughs.
Darby & H are definitely going to be the first things that she really walks to.
She and H have started to play together more and I love watching him actually pay attention to her and have fun with her. I think that they will be good friends.
Personality: She is very particular. I have watched her look through a whole box of legos just to get one specific lego. It blows my mind that at 10 months she knows what she is looking for and will look until she finds it.
She is becoming very specific with the toys she plays with.
She is starting to love music. Any song that is played she moves her feet and when it ends she will try to sing. She has discovered a recorder and loves to play it.
She is my little love bug and I can't wait to spend more time with her.
I hope you have a great Wednesday!
