All About Amelia - 10 months old!

Amelia, you're 10 months old!!

You weigh 21 pounds - 11 ounces. You're 28.25 inches long.

You're wearing size 3 diapers.

You're wearing mostly 12 month clothing. Some 9 month - depending on the brand. It's hard to find 9 month clothing that is long enough for you.

You're sleeping 11-12 hours every night. You take a morning and afternoon nap that range from 1-2 hrs each. You're always so happy when you wake up!

You're taking 8-10 ounces of formula, four times a day. You eat baby food at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Mommy gave you a french fry and you loved it. You also love angel hair pasta - no sauce. :)

Da-da is your favorite word right now. You just sit and say it over and over. You still only say Ma-ma when you're upset. You say ba-ba (bottle) and bye-bye a lot. You will also copy us if we say, "shoo" (as in something stinks). (LOL)

You wave hi and bye-bye.

You're very affectionate and will give kisses to just about anyone.

You recognize the word "snack." As soon as I ask you if you want a snack, you turn and start my way. You woke up one morning and decided that your favorite snack is Gerber Puffs. You like every flavor. It's so cute to watch your little fingers pick them up and take them to your mouth.

You also like the Gerber cheese puffs.

Your Granny has taught you to clap your hands and it's so cute. You stop and hold one hand still and clap it with your other hand.

You have two bottom teeth that have come through and a top tooth coming in!

You no longer army's full-blown crawling everywhere you go. You have the red knees to prove it.

You pull yourself up to the couch, chairs, whatever you No wonder you're exhausted by the end of the day. You pull yourself up and will let go and stand for just a couple of seconds before falling. You are very brave and forget that you don't know how to walk just yet. :)

You're into everything. You're constantly looking around to see what you can get into next. You will sit and play with toys on your own, but lose interest fairly quickly. Even if Mommy is on the floor playing with you, you're looking for something to get into. You keep us on our toes, sweet girl! (LOL)

You love electronics.

You're still a very go-with-the-flow baby. We can keep you up past your bedtime (for whatever reason) and you rarely fuss. You will sleep in the car or wherever you happen to be. You sleep wonderfully in a hotel crib or pack-n-play, which makes it so easy to travel with you. You have been in the car for over 5 hours at a time and as long as we stop to change and feed you, you're happy!

You're deathly afraid of changing tables at restaurants, stores, etc. You hold on for dear think you're going to fall and it's the saddest thing I've ever seen. This is what you do every time. SO SAD!! :(

We feel so blessed that God chose us to be your parents, Amelia. We love you so much and we make sure to tell you over and over, every day!!

Daddy & Mommy

How is it possible that she keeps getting cuter and cuter?! Oh, I just love her and reading about all she is up to now.

And, bless it with the changing table drama. Poor baby!

Mel said...

She's gorgeous, I love her! We went through the same thing with the public changing tables... she'd scream the entire time. I think part of it is because they are so hard! I started putting my diaper bag changing pad underneath her instead of those bed liners they provide. I also make sure to hand her something to look at while she's on them... a book, a toy... whatever I have in my "mom bag." Even handing her an extra diaper or the wipe package helps!

Betsy said...

She is so adorable. Bless her heart. She looks pitiful on that changing table! Those would scare me too. They seem so wobbly!
