Avery's 10th Month


On February 28th, you turned 10 months old!! How are you 10 months old already?! I can't believe you will be a year old in 2 more months. Cue the tears. It just doesn't seem possible.

(All the pictures below are from your 9 month session. The blanket was made by your Maw Maw (My Mom). She made it for me when I was little. ♥)

At your 9 month check-up, you weighed 20 pounds, 11 ounces (80%) and you were 30 inches tall (95%). Your pedi. was very impressed with how you are doing and how big you are! :-) You are a huge fan of any food we give you. You LOVE to eat!! It doesn't matter if you've just eaten a whole jar or 2 of baby food, if we are eating, you want to eat! Ha. If we are eating a snack in the living room, you will scoot right on over to us as fast as you can and beg for some. It's hilarious. You can eat anything soft now, so you've tried macaroni, bread, carrots, potatoes, green beans, cake and several other things. You love it all!

You are sleeping great still! You sleep all night and usually wake up once for a bottle at some point between 3 and 5 a.m. Then you always go right back to sleep! I love that your such a great sleeper.

You wear size 4 diapers, 18 month clothes and you've moved up to size 3 shoes. 

You are still scooting to get where you want to go and you are cruising like crazy along all the furniture, tables, us... whatever you can pull up on and walk along, you will. You have started taking steps if we stand you up and let go of you, you will walk to us and it's so cute! You don't normally let go to walk where you want to go, but you have been getting braver and braver and will occasionally turn loose of the furniture to walk a few short steps to get to us! I have a feeling you'll be full blown walking by the end of this month!

You can clap, raise your hands when we say "so big", you tilt your head over when we say "upside down", you give your babies hugs when we say "awe baby", you will put your hand up to your ear when we say "hello", you can wave bye bye and you  know where your nose is! You're so smart and I'm so proud of you!

You say, Dada, Momma, Baba and Ni-Ni. I don't think you really associate those sounds with anyone or anything other than maybe Momma. You just say Momma when you are sad.

Well, I think that about covers your 10th month. You are getting so big and are so sweet and so much fun.

Pretty girl, I love you so much! You are such a blessing.

Mommy, xoxo
