Miss Lydia, baby girl, you're 10 months old now, wow! Let's see, what have you been up to this month.....
She's getting faster and faster, crawling around the house, can crawl up the stairs now, chasing after her brother most of the time :) Oh, that brother, she just adores him and he loves to make her laugh! Lydia is pulling herself up on everything to stand, just now starting to walk along furniture a little bit, and even lets go and stands for second or two. Her favorite toy right now would have to be the kitchen up in the loft. She loves to open/close the cupboards and play with all the food. She'll play by herself for quite some time in the loft. Lydia is so content with being outside, whether we're going for a walk in the stroller, wagon, or Burley, or just sitting and playing on the picnic blanket. No new words that I can think of this month, just a lot more babbling in general.
There are now 9 teeth in that little mouth - that 9th one seemed to be a tough one, poor thing. It's the weirdest thing, she skipped a few spaces and it's way in the back?! Still wearing size 3 diapers and in 9 and 12 month clothing. Nighttime sleeping is still the same, 12-13 hours, but those naps haven't been the best for me lately, and I don't really know why? This too, shall pass, right? She's starting to get a little picky in the food department already. Some days she'll pick off her peas, carrots, most vegetables I guess, and drop them off the edge of her high chair. She's too little to be doing this! She'll still eat them if they're pureed, so that's ok, I guess. The girl loves her meat, any kind, she'll eat it! I'd say her favorite foods right now would be chicken, raspberries, bananas, bread, and Cheerios! My breastfeeding will be coming to an end soon. Once again, I'm glad I didn't have to make the decision when to stop, but the well is running dry. I've got oodles of milk stored up in the freezer, which I've been digging into now, and this should last for a while. She still gets 4 helpings of milk each day - it's a combo of nursing, sippy cup, and bottle.
Crazy to think that 1-year-old milestone is just around the corner!
