10 Months

 
 
Emma Ramey - we are officially in DOUBLE DIGITS!!  Only two months until your first birthday - I can't believe it!

Here's what you're up to.


Weight:

You are at 23.6 pounds…still in the 94th percentile!

Height:

You might be slowing down in the height department…you are 29 1/4 inches, which is the 80th percentile. I don't know if you've shrunk or we measured you the wrong way at your 9 month appointment, but you were 30 inches tall then!
 
 

Clothing Size:

You are just about out of the 12 month clothes. Pajamas are definitely getting snug, and I've noticed your arms are a little too short for 12 month shirts now. We should be breaking out the 18 month clothes soon!

Diapers:

Still in size 4. I think we might need overnight diapers soon…you just sleep so long those size 4's can't handle it! :) You are going through 4-5 diapers a day now.

Feeding:

You'll still eat anything we put in front of you! You eat 4 times a day - breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a night time bottle. At breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you get about 4 ounces of a fruit/veggie and usually a little finger food (puffs, crackers, cereal, goldfish).

You've had just about every fruit and veggie you can imagine now! You still love sweet potatoes and squash the most. You've also had chicken!
 
 
 
Hair/Eyes:
 
Pretty blue eyes, and a little bit of hair!  You are getting a good bit of dirty blonde hair in the back...still next to nothing up top.  We're going to need to work on that - Momma needs something to clip bows in!

Sleep:

I think you're starting to phase out one of your naps (already??).  We still lay you down for your afternoon nap, but you're not having it most days.  It could be teething though.  You still take and awesome nap in the morning (usually close to 2 hours), and you sleep about 6:30 at night to around 8 in the morning most days!
 
Fun Stuff:
 
-You are such a great stander now!  You don't realize it, but you can stand without holding on to something...if you're not paying attention, you'll let go and you can stand just fine on your own.
 
 
-You are great at walking when we hold your hand - but, once again, I don't think you realize what you can do.  You might just be able to walk on your own if you tried!
 
-You have 7 teeth, and I'm pretty sure there's another one coming in (we just haven't found it yet)...you are showing every sign of teething in the book right now.  
 
-You are so giggly lately!  Just the most random things crack you up - Hardy running, us throwing a ball, and even Daddy tossing a bottle cap in the air last night.
 
 
See? 
 
-You climb on EVERYTHING.  I call you my monkey because you are into everything and constantly on the move.  You still love to hang upside down too!
 
-You love the outside.  When it's nice, we've been taking lots of walks.
-Hardy is your buddy. :) You love him so much!  He's been a good big brother too - he takes a lot of hair pulling and climbing from you.
 
 
-You have the cutest, cheesiest grin when you get tickled about something now!
-You say Dada, Nana, and Mama all the time.  You say something that sounds like Bye Bye (usually something like Dye Dye), and you can say "Hi."  You also scream at Hardy - we thinks it's because that's how he talks, you think you're talking to him. :)
You are just the most fun, amazing little thing!  We love you more and more every day.
