10 months!!!!

10 months old!! 

Happy! (And ready to crawl off the rocking chair at any given second)

Attacking Mr Bear!

We meet again, Bear.

10 month stats:
Weight: I'm guessing a bit over 20 pounds? 
Height: I'm guessing around 29 inches!  
Eating: 3 meals a day. Snacks in between. Breast milk or formula every 2-4 hours.   
Clothes: 6-9 month (small), 9 month (getting small), 12 month and some 12-18 month (a bit big).
Diaper: Size 3. Size 4 at night.  

It seems like a distant memory when I would put you in the middle of the bed and know you weren't going anywhere. You are now one happy, curious little traveler - crawling is your favorite thing to do and you are QUITE good at it. You are fast, determined and willing to do whatever it takes to get to what you want. You are so perfect, so happy, so lovely - it makes me heart melt with pride watching you became this little person.
You are so gorgeous - Daddy said yesterday that he swears you are getting prettier everyday. Your eyes are this deep, deep blue - I can't help but stare at the in awe. Your hair is SO long - it gets in your eyes sometimes and the back is almost past your shoulders. It's a really pretty shade of light brown with hints of blond and golden red. Your skin is the perfect milky shade, I can't help but kiss and bite you all over! 
It seems everyday you learn something new - of course, you are crawling everywhere and discovering things you never found before. You do "So Big!" on command, high five, wave Bye-Bye, put your hands up to get picked up, and you are basically an expert at pulling yourself up. Today you pulled yourself up on the sofa for the first time and the look of pride on your face was priceless. We have baby proofed all the outlets and removed as many wires as possible, but we need to keep a close eye on you -- your speed is your best friend and our worst enemy ;) It's hard for me to get anything done but I try to soak up every second of chasing you around as I know these are the beginning of the best days. 
TV is your FAVORITE. I wish I could say I stuck to my guns about not letting you watch anything on TV until you turned two but that is out the window - you only watch Sesame Street and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and clap and dance in delight when it comes on. I refuse to let you watch anything that isn't (at least somewhat) educational. You also LOVE Jack's Big Music Show but for some reason we don't get it on FIOS - you watch it at Mom-Mom & Pop-Pop's house on Thursdays and they tell me how much you love it as well. I put on a DVD this week of all classical music and you were mildly entertained but quickly beelined for the plug of the DVD player instead- haha. 
We are in a great pattern for sleep - bedtime is still promptly at 7 PM (with bedtime routine starting at 6:45 PM) - you wake up anywhere from 5:30 AM - 7:00 AM, with the average of 6:00 AM. I try not to get you out of our crib prior to 6 AM and you're okay with that. You play, talk to yourself, crawl around and try to stand up. You also LOVE to play with "Kyle" - the lovey we gave you to sleep with (Dada named him). Napping is always a struggle but again I THINK I figured it out!! If we put you down 3 hours after you wake up, it works! For example, yesterday you woke up at 5:30 AM - napped from 8:30 - 10:30 - napped from 1:30 - 3:30 - bed at 7!! It's the power of three, for now! So that's what I'm sticking with. You are really learning to put yourself to sleep as well - we try not to put you in the crib sound asleep so you can do it yourself. 
Talking is a major accomplishment as well - my little genius!! Your words include - MAMA, DADA, DAT (Cat), MOM-MOM, POP-POP, WUBBA (Grover), UH-OH, BYE-BYE. I think you are trying to say NO and HI but haven't quite mastered them yet. You are SO SO SO smart - I can't say it enough. 
FOOD! My little piggy - you love to eat, eat, eat!! Anything mama is eating, you want as well. I've been basically giving you all foods lately - you've tried every fruit and veggie, yogurt (Yo-Yo baby organic yogurt), cheese, chicken, pasta, matzoh balls - you even loved gelfite fish last night at your first passover Seder! Next up? Spaghetti and sauce!!! You have also become a pro at the sippy cup! You love to drink water and do so all day, everyday. There are two different types of cups you like so I'll stick with those! I'm so proud of you as I know the days of bottles are winding down and we'll need to switch to all cups soon.
I can't tell if you have six or seven teeth - but either way you have a mouth full of them! They are so cute and I love when you smile and show me all your little white pearls!!
We started music class this week - Spring session!! It was so much fun - you finally really got it - participating by shaking the instruments, dancing, laughing and crawling around. I love how all the kids take care of you and help you as well - you have lots of great friends!

You officially made the switch to big girl car seat - Daddy & I each got the Britax Marathon - they are the safest - only the best for you. It's weird not having the carrier anymore but we've passed it on to your newest cousin, Remi Leah!! (Born 4/4/12 - More on that in another entry!) 

Spring is here - it was actually a lot warmer the end of winter then it has been the beginning of spring, but we've been outside a few times - we went to the zoo, swings and more. Brooke, your nanny, takes you for nice long walks on Wednesdays and she tells me how much you love it :)

We have SO much coming up over the next month - in 2 1/2 weeks we go back to South Florida for your FIFTH trip!!! Plans include lots of family time, lots of swimming and your first trip to DISNEY WORLD!!! We are so excited - it's our 2nd wedding anniversary so we have lots to celebrate... I think you will love Mickey and Minnie and the gang!! A week after we get home from that trip, we head BACK to Florida for your SIXTH trip - this time you will be staying with Grandma & Grandpa for FOUR days while Mama & Dada have some time together in Miami. I am VERY nervous to leave you but I know you'll do great -- it'll be good for everybody and I am so excited. 

Your 1st birthday is fast approaching - it's all booked - the theme is finally set (SESAME STREET!), and your invitations will be ordered today!!! We can't believe it's almost been 1 year - by far, these past 10 months have been the most magical and rewarding time of my life - you are the best thing we've ever done. 

We love you, BUNNY!
Your mama

Face. Love.

Camden Aquarium! You loved the fishies!

And this fish loved you.

Dada snuggles.

Fun with Grandma!

Mama loved touching the sting rays!

You loved every second of the aquarium!

We love when Grandma & Grandpa visit!
