Blaire is 10 months

  • Date: December 17th, 2017 (photos taken December 26, 2017)
  • Height: 27.5 inches
  • Weight: 18 lbs 6oz
  • Sleeping Pattern: The tail end of this month has been so much better than the beginning! Thanks to teething and a lagging cold, the first bit wasn’t fun, but now she’s starting to sleep more! She typically goes to sleep around 7:30pm and sleeps for 12 hours. She’ll be awake until around 11am and takes a 2-3 hour nap. She’s up for the rest of the day. Busy girl!
  • Eating Habits: Since last month’s 9 month check up, we’ve been feeding her what we’re eating. I blend up our soft dinners and feed it to her. I tried giving her finger foods of what we’re eating and she refuses to try them. She’d rather be spoon fed. However, I will give her cherrios or puffs and she loves grabbing for those (she has such great finger pinchers and hand/eye coordination!) and eating them.
  • Development:
  • Mischief: With Christmas almost here, I was curious how she would do with Christmas decorations. She’s been pretty good! We put our tree up on a little table with the electric train running around it and she doesn’t have any interest. Our next step was to put presents under and around the table and she does like to put her mouth on the boxes. A quick diversion is usually all it takes for her to forget about it. She still bolts to Leland’s dog food and water whenever given the chance. I have to put his food/water up high when she’s in crawling mode (poor Leland).
  • Cuteness: Her smile continues to melt us. She’s always getting the sweetest comments from strangers at how beautiful her eyes are. We agree! And something I will always treasure is how much she loves her mama. She lights up when she sees me and just wants to be held by me. I love it and will sacrifice all future back pain for endless Blaire cuddles on my hip.
  • Talking: She still has “baba”, “nana”, “dada” and “mama” in her vocabulary, but “baba” is her favorite thing to say. I don’t know what it means, but she sure does like talking with that sound!
  • Favorites: Mamas hip (still) and her pacifier (which I try to only give it to her now when she’s fussy or going to sleep).
  • Firsts: Well, tomorrow she’s going on her first trip to Disney World! She also had her first thanksgiving this month and has been a trouper during all of our late night family gatherings.
  • Concerns: Fingers crossed she does well with our long car ride to Orlando and long days in the Disney parks! She did amazing! Best travel baby!
  • A Day in the Life: This month, Blaire goes to bed around 7-7:30pm. She gets a bath and is then nursed to sleep. (Knock on wood) She’s been sleeping through the night most nights, else just one wake up until around 8am. She’ll typically only take one long nap in the middle of the day.
