Little Miss is 10 Months Old...

Tuesday, July 24, 2012
Broken record and you know what is coming....but HOW IS SHE THIS OLD?  I seriously am pushing on the breaks as hard as I can and time won't stop - ah!  My baby is growing up and from time to time when I see her, she seems to have grown since the last moment I looked at her.  She is a precious, precious gift and she recieves hundreds if not thousands of kisses, hugs and cuddles a day (if I can catch her ;)


***Had to include this one....she was done being made to sit still!
...and back to being happy temporarily...


At 10 months Vera is up to everything, here is a glimpse...
  • She weighs about 17 lbs 5 oz
  • She eats mostly table food and likes mostly whatever we eat
  • She loves mac n'cheese, fruit, taco meat, Italian, sweet potatoes, Dutch Letters (ha!)
  • She will eat some veggies but I have to give them to her first so she doesn't have options
  • She drinks out of a sippy well but tries to steal Solon's because his is more tasty with juice
  • She never sits still
  • She loves to be chased
  • Has gotten ticklish this month and laughs like crazy
  • Loves to splash in any pool
  • All smiles for her big brother
  • Loves to wrestle with him and be with him, on top of him and right in his business (sometimes that works out great and other times we build a barrier between them)
  • Crawling up the stairs
  • stands in her bed when she wakes up and babbles
  • goes to sleep all on her own, doesn't want to be rocked to sleep much anymore (tear)
  • SLEEPS THROUGH THE NIGHT (PTL) from 7:30pm (6 am feeding) and goes back to sleep until 7:45-8AM
  • Morning catnap on the go for 20-30 minutes
  • Afternoon nap from 1-4pm

  • Favorite snacks are graham crackers, yogurt bites and puffs
  • Puts everything in her mouth
  • Loves to chew on her thumb and fingers (she is teething)
  • Still no teeth
  • Walks along furniture and pulls self up on everything
  • Can open cabinets and drawers and pull everything out - we have "re" babyproofed
  • Has a protective big brother who helps keep her out of trouble
  • Does not like to be in the car seat, cart, or high chair for too long - wants to be on the move
  • Spends a lot of her time chasing someone around the house
  • Likes to crawl on to the dishwasher, check out the toilet (if the door is not closed) and play in Cy's water bowl.
  • Likes to look out the window
  • babbles all the time and makes funny sounds with her lips/voice
  • waves bye-bye
  • working on the sign for more and thank you but doesn't see a need for it
  • likes to look at books and be read to
  • TV catches her attention occasionally
  • been in the stranger dange mode big and bad but getting better (no tears at church or the gym yesterday!)
  • apathetic about her pacifier - only use it if fussy without mommy
  • loves her blanket and still covers her head to sleep with it
  • pulls out ALL of her cute hairbands - boo!
  • loves to give slobbery kisses
  • prefers mommy over anybody else
  • reaches up for you
  • likes finger plays, songs, rhymes and peek a boo
  • has some excema that we try to keep under control with coconut oil and limited baths (just 1-2 a week)
