Ten Months

Ellie, you are 10 months old!  DOUBLE DIGITS!  I cannot believe I am ordering your birthday invitations next week and planning your party.  (I know, I know, but I'm a planner and this stuff takes time and thought!)  You are such a sweet, happy, content baby and we love you now more than ever!!

You have become such a big girl in so many ways over this last month.  You are pulling up on everything in sight and you are standing, moving, talking and constantly on the go!  You still only have your 2 cute little teeth, but the drool is back so there may be more soon!  You have recently taken more interest in TV and love to watch Sesame Street, Super Why and The Cat in the Hat.  We LOVE PBS Kids!!  You are still in size 3 diapers, mostly 9 months and some 12 month sized clothes.

You are a fabulous sleeper!  If we are home and you stay on your daily schedule, you go to bed between 6 and 7!  I have learned that the more you sleep, the more you sleep!  You wake up between 6 and 7 in the mornings too and take 2 great naps!  This makes your mommy very happy:)

You have now had lots of table food!  You won't hardly eat your baby food anymore, you are Miss Independent and want to feed yourself!  You love your Yo Baby yogurt, whole wheat toast and pancakes, any type of potato, shredded cheese, your Gerber tomato puffs, cheerios, diced carrots, ravioli, fresh banana, diced pears, mac and cheese and you still love that bottle.  You are taking it better at MDO now too!  You went for a while without taking a bottle at all and I really didn't like wasting all of that formula.  So glad you are back on track.

Turning our guest room into a play room has been a great decision.  All of your toys are in there (Santa has NO clue what to bring, you don't need a thing!) and you could play for hours!

Sweet girl, you are the light of our lives!  Your smiles make me melt and your sweet voice just cracks me up.  I love you SO SO much!!!
