Ten Months

Nicknames:Little Z, Z, Zoe Bear, Bear, Lovey, Booger Butt, Monkey, Zo-Zo

Loves: Moving. You are constantly crawling around and pulling up on everything you can get your grip on. Your favorite toys are still your Vtech Walker, your yellow chair and  your activity table. You also like your tea pot and still play with your shape sorter and stacking cups.

Hates: Waiting for food, getting your jammies on and being woken up in the evenings when we get home from daycare. You usually fall asleep in the car within 5 minutes of me picking you up and you do not like to be disturbed when it is time to get out of the car!

Milestones: You are really crawling now!!! When you first started, it was more of an army crawl. Now you get on all fours and you can go really fast! There have been a few times when you have let go of your toy or a piece of furniture without realizing it and stood by yourself unassisted for a moment. You have great control over standing up and sitting down now. You have done great with picking up pieces of food and putting them in your mouth.

Clothing: Most of your clothes are 9 months or 12 months right now. You still fit into all your 6 month onesies and rompers, but the pants have to be 12 months or they are far too short. You have long legs like mommy. You are still in a size 3 diapers for the day, and a 4 for your overnights.

Feeding/Sleeping: You are still on the same schedule as far was what time you eat and have your bottles. You usually go to bed around 7pm every night. Naps are hit or miss with you. Most of the time you are too busy having fun to be bothered to take a nap. You still eat every puree I give you. We have introduced stage 3 foods that are chunkier and have bits in them and you are doing well with those! Since your 9 month check up, you have been eating three meals a day and two snacks. You can now pick up and chew your puffs and yogurt melts.

Looks: Your eyes are still a strikingly beautiful light blue. Everyone who you come in contact with comments on how beautiful  your eyes are. Your hair is a dark blonde/light brown and has been that way for several months. It is longer in the back and touches the bottom of your neck!

Things I want to remember from this month…

You still growl and we play this game where you growl at me and I growl back. You laugh and laugh and we keep growling at each other and it is so fun!!!

You love to play ball with us. You throw it at us and we roll it back to you. Sometimes you even roll it for yourself to go get.

You shared ice cream with me for the first time when we were in Oneonta. (You have had frozen yogurt before.) You also had a few pieces of bread and fries that aunt Tracy shared with you.

You have a “boyfriend” at daycare. Every morning when you two see each other,  you both get so excited and frantically wave. Usually he is in the middle of eating breakfast and he quits once he sees you. It’s really sweet. It also reminds mommy to keep you locked up until you are 30. All of  your teachers call him  your boyfriend and often times when I look at the live feed of your classroom, you two are playing together somewhere.

Speaking of live feed, one time when I checked in on you…you were taking toys and tilting your head back and balancing them on your face. When they fell, you would grab something else and try again. It made me laugh and laugh.

You like to stick your tongue out at yourself when you look in the mirror. A few times you have tried to lick the mirror. You seriously crack me up.

You love your daddy snuggle time every night. Usually when I make you your nighttime bottle, your daddy snuggles you on the couch and you always look so content.

Sofia the First is the only TV show that holds  your attention. Besides football. You love football!

Can we talk about  how difficult it is getting to take these monthly pictures???? This is how most of them look….

    Haha those pictures are so cute. She looks like she’s ready to be on the move! That’s neat that you get to watch her at daycare on the live cam. She’s getting so big! Sounds like she has a fun and playful personality. ❤️ I hope Mom and Dad are raising her to be a GA fan too.

    Zoe and her killer smile! Sounds like she’s growing healthy with her eating and sleeping patterns. I don’t like to be woken up from naps either! lol

    That’s so exciting that she’s starting to stand up by herself, sometimes without even realizing it! And does this mean that her blue eyes are here to stay? I’m hoping that one of our girls ends up with blue eyes like me, but we’ll have to see! She really is growing up so fast, but she’s so precious!

    Zoe, I, too, hate waiting for food 😉
    It’s awesome that she’s formed a connection with another little one at daycare! I feel like kids don’t typically form friendships until they’re almost 2! She’s going to be a little social butterfly!

    10 months! Shut the front door. Also, I’m telling Sheffield about this supposed “daycare boyfriend.” And I’m totally jealous of her blue eyes! So pretty!

    Oh my goodness! So cute with her daycare “boyfriend”! But seriously, I have intense sympathy now for how my parents must have felt during my teenage years & how hard it must be when your daughter starts dating!

    Happy 10 months Zoe!
