With the ringing in of the first day of the new year, my baby girl turned 10 months old!
(sleepy before her first nap)
This month Elsie:
-got her two front teeth! She also just cut a third bottom tooth. That's 5 teeth total!
-decided she was done with baby food! It was like one day she wanted it and the next she hated it. I can still sometimes get her to eat some from a pouch if she doesn't think there's something better available. And I mix some in with her breakfast oatmeal. She has been eating what we eat for meals other than breakfast. She even had curry chicken and veggies the other day!
-eats 3 meals a day and sometimes a snack. She drink 4 6oz bottles of formula a day and water with her meals. I don't really give her much juice unless she seems constipated.
-is not walking on her own yet but walks when holding on to anything. She also has been experimenting with standing up and letting go. She can stand for about 30 seconds by herself.
-is wearing 12 month clothes and she has even worn a few 18 month pieces. I put away all of the 9 month clothes.
-loves to play! She can play by herself for hours! She also still loves to watch Sesame Street but we try to limit it to just a few episodes a day.
-says "mama" or "mum" but mostly only when she's upset or wants something and "dada" but makes a ton of other sounds.
-is still sleeping like a champ! She sleeps from about 7-7:30pm until about 7-7:30am. She will stay up later if we are out doing something but still only sleeps until about 7. She also takes 2 naps a day sometimes 3 if it's a weird day.
-loves bath time! She likes to flop from one side of the tub to the other and splash!
She's turning in to a very independent little girl and it is so much fun to watch her grow! She is absolutely the light of our lives! We are such proud parents!
