Monthly Milestones: 9 & 10 Months

I can't believe how far I fell behind with not just blogging but with my Monthly Milestones posts as well. Here I am planning her first birthday party and I haven't even posted the 9 and 10 month updates. I'm becoming more and more emotional about the fact that she is going to be transitioning from a baby to a toddler soon. Life with a baby really is crazy- you go from wishing they would just sleep through the night to finally getting them to sleep but then wanting to go in and just admire them while they're sleeping and then contemplating taking them out the crib to snuggle. Crazy roller coaster ride this is. Crazy.

The monthly stickers are now a thing of the past. All she wants to do is rip them off now. Monthly photos shoots are getting harder and harder now that she is so mobile and wiggly. This girl is in constant motion. You can see what I'm talking about with my attempts below:

Month 9
Weight & Length: about 20 lbs., approximately 28 inches 
Clothing Size: 9 months and 12 months
Diaper Size: Size 3
Sleep: The first half of the month was rough. You were taking naps 2x a day but they were only half hour naps thankfully this was all resolved by the end of the month because I couldn't get much done and we were both unhappy with this routine. You woke up a lot a night too this month but it could have to do with the fact that you cut not one but 2 teeth this month- your 2 front teeth!
Feeding: 7 ounce bottles of breast milk every 4 hours, fruits, veggies, meat, oatmeal
Hair Color: Medium brown with a golden hue. Curls are coming in!
Eye Color: dark blue/gray with flecks of brown- a perfect combo of mine and my husbands eyes.
Milestones & Firsts: This strong little girl climbed a full flight of stairs and made it her new favorite activity because all you wanted to do was climb up and start over again and again and again... You are climbing on everything you possibly can. You love peek-a-boo and you are so excitable now. Your little personality is whinging through and you crack up laughing now- it's definitely the cutest thing in the whole world.

Month 10
Weight & Length: about 20.5 lbs., approximately 28 1/2 inches 
Clothing Size: 9 months and 12 months
Diaper Size: Size 3
Sleep: We moved into your new home this month and I was so worried about sleep issues. We got you on a great schedule a week and a half before we moved and you started sleeping soundly though the night. I was convinced that the move would end your perfect sleep schedule but I couldn't have been more wrong. You have never slept better. You are sleeping through the night (bed at 7/7:30pm and waking at 7:30/8am and napping like a champ- 2 naps/day totaling about 3 hours/day. 
Feeding: 7 ounce bottles of breast milk every 4 hours, You had some cranberry sauce and turkey on Thanksgiving and you're starting to eat what we are eating now. You decided to boycott purees so I figured it was time to transition to little bits and pieces of what we're eating and you are very happy with the switch. You love everything- you're such a great eater and I just hope it stays that way.  Oh and puffs- you love your puffs! 
Hair Color: Medium brown with a golden hue. Little curls in the back!
Eye Color: dark blue/gray with flecks of brown- a perfect combo of mine and my husbands eyes.
Milestones & Firsts: You are walking with assistance now- pushing your lion walker around and walking along the furniture while holding on. You are saying "momma" all the time which totally melts my heart. You love pointing at things and then turning to us to tell you what it is that you are attracted to. You cut a 5th tooth (bottom, next to middle teeth). You're stability is improving and I'm starting to realize that you are going to be walking so soon.

In other news, we are settling into our new home and it's starting to feel more like home. We're finally starting to hang things on the walls and figuring things out. Between the holidays, working, chasing after an 11 month old, and now with the first birthday just around the corner, blogging has been on the back burner because I really haven't had the time but I really want to blog and I have all of these ideas but I just need more hours in a day. I'm hoping to get back into the groove of posting in February when I'm planning on things calming down.
