10 months


Ten months. How time flies! 

Let's get right to business:

Sleep! You are sleeping through the night!! 10+ glorious hours of consecutive sleep every single night! Praise the Lord! You go down every night at 8-8:30 & wake up anywhere from 6-7am. We did progressive/modified cry-it-out & it was one of the hardest things I've had to do as a momma. We first started with just bedtime, did that for 2 nights, then added nap times once momma was off work for a few days. It only took 3 nights for you to go down without a problem & start sleeping through the night! At around 7:30 or so, we give you a bath, put lotion on you, PJs, then bottle. Once you finish your bottle, we tell you that we love you & it's night-night time, then lay you in your crib drowsy, but awake. You go to sleep without a problem & basically push off of us to get into your crib. It is such a difference from last month & I regret not doing this sooner! Sometimes, you do still fight nap times, but for the most part, you do okay. You take 2 naps a day.. one in the morning which is anywhere from 30 minutes-2 hours, then you take a 30 minute nap in the afternoon. Oh, how sleep makes such a difference! 

You are a crawling pro! You also have mastered cruising & walking along the couch while holding on. You are slowly learning to let go of toys & stand for a few seconds at a time, but you get scared & fall to your butt. You love pushing your toy that lets you practice walking. I bet you will be walking sooner rather than later. You are constantly into everything & we you do not like to sit still. You are able to say mama & dada & you look at us when we ask where we are. You also know who "sissy/Juno" is. You absolutely adore her & she adores you! You love waving bye-bye to people. You also have this laugh/cough thing that you do when you think something is funny & we all love it. You have one adorable personality, mister!

You eat 3 meals/day along with snacks here & there. You have loved everything we have put in front of you. You are slowly transitioning to more table food then purees. You have eight teeth now (all top & bottom 4) & are gnawing again on everything like you do before you get teeth. I'm wondering if you are working on molars but we shall see! You take 6 oz bottles every 3 hours, but with meals you only take 4 oz. You are starting to get the hang of the sippy cup & would rather have water to drink then juice (which momma is perfectly find with).

You are in size 4 diapers. You wear mostly 12 month outfits, but some 9 & 9-12 month clothing still fits.

Wt: 22 pounds, 9 ounces

We can't wait to see what the next month brings, bubs. Momma & Daddy love you so much!
