Ten Month Update



Age:  Ten Months

Height:  26 Inches

Weight:  18 Pounds

Milestones:  We are in a whole new world over here these days.  Waverly Maye is a wild woman - and getting stronger, quicker, and more mobile everyday.  She can pull herself up without even blinking an eye, and then can manuever herself from one spot to the next.  If my mom intuitions are right, she will definitely be walking before her first birthday.  And we are in trouble - this little lady is a crazy one.  She says momma & dadda all the time, and has said bye-bye a couple of times, too.  She LOVES to imitate us and it is the cutest thing ever.  And the biggest milestone of the month is definitely her teeth!  She currently has three. :)

Sleep:  As always, I am nervous to state this ... but Waverly Maye is sleeping better than ever.  And therefore, so are we.  She has been going down without an issue each night around 8 and sleeping until about 6 the next morning.  It has been pure bliss, for everyone involved.  Naps are a different situation.  This baby girl fights naps on a daily basis - she doesn't want to miss a thing!  It's hard for me to get her on a good nap schedule while working & with different sitters during the week.  And obviously, when I get home, I don't want her to sleep!  But the countdown is on for summer & my number one goal is to get her on a
good routine.

Eating:  We got the green light for legit, big people food this month and we totally took it.  We started off by trying pastina, steamed broccoli, mac & cheese, waffles, ravioli and lots of fruits.  Her favorites are definitely waffles and mac & cheese.  I am pretty sure she would eat them all day, everyday if we would let her, and then lick the bowl.  I am also proud to still be breastfeeding, although definitely not as much.  We are down to a small feeding in the morning & at night, but I feel so lucky to have that special time with my girl, even if it is just twice a day.  My goal is still one year - almost there!

Favorite Moments:  Waverly Maye's spunky, crazy personality definitely keeps us on our toes, but is so much fun.  She is seriously the happiest baby ever (I am biased), and everyday with her is completely entertaining.  Highlights of our week are anytime spent outdoors, Sunday mornings at Little Gym, meal & and bath time.  Um ... I guess that is all day, everyday?!!  She is the best. :)

Worst Moments:  I always want to be honest on this blog, the good, the bad & the ugly ... so even though I would rather not admit our worst moment, I will.  This one was definitely ugly.  Waverly got a hold of my curling iron over the weekend.  My hot curling iron.  I looked away for a millisecond and she had grabbed the handle and dropped the rod on her sweet little arm.  She only cried for a couple of minutes & has been happy as ever since, but I have obviously never felt worse.  Waverly's first injury would be with a hair appliance.  I have had about a 100 of those, but I was hoping Waverly Maye would at least be exempt until she hit high school.  TOTAL crash of the month.

Extra Comments:  My hubby & I looked at each other last night, as Waverly was shrieking, clapping, and racing across the living room floor (all at once) ... and simply proclaimed our fear of the future.  In a good way.  Without a doubt, Waverly Maye is going to ensure that our lives are never going to be boring.  She is so animated, the life of the party, and as outgoing as they come.  We couldn't love her more.

  4. I have the exact same issue with paisley and nap time. She fights me so hard because she can't be left out and miss a single beat. So glad I'm not the only one who has a cute little daughter who just wants to take it all in! Love your blog!
