Haddie Mae: 10 months

Dear Haddie Mae,
At 10 months...

  • You weigh 20ish pounds but are still very short, which makes for an adorably chubby body!
  • You are wearing 12 month clothes and size 4 diapers just like your brother because you poop through the smaller size...
  • You sleep from 7pm-7am (12 hours), and still take 2 naps (9:30 and 2:00)
  • You have started getting up on your hands and knees and rocking, but still no crawling (although sometimes you accidentally move backward). You are trying to take some steps (assisted) and you want to be standing ALL the time.
  • Your favorite toy is any stuffed animal, baby doll, even the dog treat box with a dog face on it. You just want to be interacting with someone at all times!
  • You have gotten 5 teeth in the last month and have another one on the way!
  • You like to roll around in your crib and talk to your pacifiers before you fall asleep
  • Your favorite foods are turkey, toast, sandwiches, veggie straws, and sometimes baby food (mostly fruit). But you prefer table food over baby food now.
  • You have REALLY come into your own personality this month! All the sudden you are making funny faces and talking and having preferences over toys and activities
  • You have started babbling like crazy! You love talking, squealing, and making all kinds of noises
  • You still drink about 5oz per bottle and eat 3 meals a day, but a lot of times those are more like snack. You don't really care much about food!
  • You have figured out how to use a sippy cup although you much prefer your bottle
  • You don't want to sit in your jumper anymore because you want to be moving around
  • You like sitting on the trampoline while Titus jumps around you
  • When we're in the car you always pull your carseat overhead visor down so you can get a full view of your brother. He babbles and sings to you and you think it's so funny! But you don't fall asleep in your carseat anymore either, sad day!
  • People say you look a lot like your brother as a baby but you definitely still have red hair.
  • You are happiest when there are other kids around to play with, and you have started trying to hug and kiss them
  • Your separation anxiety has gotten a lot better, you don't seem to mind me leaving as much as long as you don't see me go. But you do get particular about bedtime and sometimes you won't take a bottle from anyone but me.
  • You like going outside for walks but would generally prefer I carry you in the baby carrier than to sit in the stroller for more than 15 minutes
  • Your favorite game is when I blow in your face and when we play peekaboo 
  • You hate being left alone in a room by yourself
Haddie Mae I have just been shocked at how much personality has come out in you this month! You have always been sweet and content, but that was more your temperament than your actual personality. But now you are really starting to come into your own and I can't get enough of each little piece that makes you unique! A lot of the time when you are super talkative or making funny faces you don't even know I'm watching, you are just entertaining yourself. You have lots of little conversations with your baby doll or stuffed animals and I just know you are telling them how special they are and how much you love them because that's the kind of sweetness you are made of! You are such an easy smiler and sometimes you are bashful and bury your head in my shirt, but you give out giggles and grins to anyone who will keep eye contact with you for long enough. We are so thankful for you, baby love! These first 10 months have gone by too fast, but I can't be too sad because I love every phase of yours more than the last.
