ahh! We are in to the double digits with our sweet baby!! WHAT?!?!?
July 29, 2012 Harper turned 10 months old! CRAZY!
*weight/length: no idea! We don't visit the doctor (knock on wood) until 12 months. I'd guess around 18-19 lbs.
*diapers: recently started using Pamper's 3's just because we had a box when we ran out of 2's. Still Nighttime 3's at night.
*clothes: 6 months, 6-9 months, and some 9-12 months / she also always has to have shoes on now because she wants to walk everywhere we go! no more stroller rides - yikes!!
*nicknames: Harpie, Harps, Peazer/Peas (daddy's short name for sweet pea), baby girl, sweet girl
*sleep: YAY! No more rocking, crying it out, or singing! We just lay her down awake and she knows just what to do! She's taking 2 naps a day pretty much on schedule. Her night sleep is 8pm-730/8am. She sleeps with her 'Raffi (sound machine) and a bunch of paci's all in the crib.
*food: about 26 oz. of Alimentum a day, 2-4 fruits/veggies a day, we've switched to Gerber Oatmeal instead of rice cereal (long story), and she's eating a few 'real' foods - cheese, bread, beans, fruit
*Movement: GIRL IS WALKING! So crazy! She's been taking steps since her 9 month b-day, but the past 2 weeks she's really learned to walk! She walks everywhere and it is sooo funny to watch! She won't even crawl anymore. She LOVES walking! She can go very, very fast sometimes and it's a little scary, but I think she has excellent balance! She mostly walks holding a toy in her hands and still doesn't fall!
*New Things: Harper can throw a ball and pick up balls with one hand. Harper visited the aquarium this month and loved watching the fish. Harper is able to walk in the baby pool and just loves playing with the other kids in the pool. Loving trying to rip out eyelashes! Ouch! Harper loves songs right now and enjoys doing motions with them - itsy bitsy spider, pat a cake, etc. She also loves books. Finally we are back to sitting in my lap and reading pop-up books, books with lots of color (but that are short!) and peek-a-boo books.
*Talking: Okay, Brian and I are very afraid!! haha! :) Harper loves to babble - must be a girl thing?! She wakes up on the dot almost every night between 12am-1am and 5:30am-6:30am and babbles to herself. I mean, loud ya'll! It is super funny! Then she will go right back to sleep! She also babbles all day long! She is saying with meaning: MaMa (love!!), DaDa (love!!), and a few times 'ba' for ball. She is still a good little listener and it's just crazy what a sponge she is! As I said in last month's post, when I say "go get your book" she knows and grabs her book. Now we can say the following things and she will grab that item - baby, gator, ball, bug (her rocker).
*Toys: Harper would rather play with a dump truck or car over any baby doll! *must change that!* haha! She loves her shopping cart, her stuffed alligator, and her ball. But, mainly she likes to put toys in something and then throw them out - over and over again!
*Teeth: 2 bottom teeth, one upper tooth is breaking through! Everything is still going into her mouth!
Happy 10 Months sweet baby girl!!
