Baby Girl is 10 Months!

3.25.2012

Dear Emerson,

Every single day your Daddy and I talk about how much you are growing! You just astonish us with all of the new things you are learning and your sweet as sugar personality makes us love you more and more every day. You are still the sweetest and most mild-mannered baby and everyone always comments on how good you are. We feel so lucky to have such a sweet girl! You are quite the little charmer with the toothy grin and fake laugh that you have suddenly mastered. You are a blessing to everyone that you encounter and you are beautiful both inside and out. We love you more than words could ever say!

Love,
Mommy


I don't have official stats for you this month but I'm guessing that you are a little over 19 lbs and about 28.5 inches. You are still wearing Size 3 diapers and we have finally retired all of your 3-6 month clothes. :) You are now wearing 6-9 month clothes and some 6-12 months. You are wearing Size 1 and some Size 2 shoes and we have been trying to put you in shoes more often so that you can get used to them. They don't seem to bother you at all.


You are still nursing every 4 hours and eating 3 meals a day, plus the occasional snack. You are not a picky eater at all and will eat pretty much anything I give you. This month you tried tuna, string cheese, fruit smoothie, macaroni and cheese, scrambled eggs, and goldfish crackers.  You have moved away from purees and now you mostly eat finger foods. When you do have foods that require a fork or a spoon, you love to hold it and feed yourself. It's messy but you do a pretty good job of getting the food in your mouth.  You also love to try to feed Mommy or Daddy while you are eating. Your favorite foods right now are bananas, cheese, Cheerios, and broccoli. You are still obsessed with drinking water from your cup and we never leave home without it.

You have 6 teeth and you love to show them off!
You have gained such better control of your body this month. You are crawling incredibly fast and pulling up on everything with ease. You will let go for long periods of time and you are able to sit down easily and stand up on your knees.



You love to walk behind your walker and can do it without any help. You are able to stand for about 30 seconds at a time and you took 2 steps toward me a few days ago. You haven't done it again since then.

You have become such a talker. You are constantly talking as if you are really carrying on a conversation. You said Daddy in context for the first time this month. Daddy was asleep and you wanted his attention so you called out to him. I've never seen him wake up so fast. You have also said Momma a few times but we're still not sure if you are associating it with me. You also say "what's this" with one hand up the air. It sounds more like "wuh zis" and when you say it you want me to tell you what something is.

You learned two new signs this month. You did the sign for doggy when we were dog-sitting and you also learned the sign for more. You learned to point and love to point at the pictures on the wall and have me tell you who everybody is. You are doing lots of motions with your hands so I have a feeling more signs will be coming soon.

You love to be outside. We spend a lot of time standing at the playhouse door, swinging, and swimming in the pool. You just love when the other kids come outside to play and I know you can't wait until you can run with them. They all love you and always come over and sit with you in the grass and talk to you.


Emerson Olivia- you are the light of our lives and we are so proud of you!


Happy 10 Months precious girl!

Happy 10 Months Emerson!

I kept giggling throughout your post because most of the toys I see in the background we have here at our house too! And I love that she even has SHOES to match her outfit, not just a big bow!

Aww Happy Ten Months sweet girl!!! She is just so cute and your posts always make me smile! I love her little sandals, precious! Time really does go SO fast, doesn't it?? I can't believe Emma Claire is days away from being FIVE monthsand y'all are just two months away from having a one year old! WOW! Oh and I love her little teeth, so sweet! :-) How was nursing while teething? Any tips? I would love some! We're teething right now and I'm nervous about possible biting!

So sweet. Your photographs are great... and such a darling subject! Love her teeth! Oh, and I am wondering if Holden has big feet because he already wears size 2!

She is so freaking cute. Love all the pics! Her outfits are so very cute, but she looks equally adorable eating nakey! Such a big girl, she will be one before you know it. Did you decide on a Bday yet? I need to get cracking on some ideas. Your hair looks great dark!

Her teeth are just precious! Such a heartbreaker!

Have you ever done a post on nursing? It's so impressive that you are still doing it at 10 months! My goal is to do the full year so I'm up for any tips you have!
