Hadley turns 11 months old tomorrow...and I'm just now posting her 10 month post...that's life with 3 kids. But I'm patting myself on the back for sticking to the monthly posts! I haven't written a single word in her baby book but at least her babyhood is being documented somewhere :)
So anyway, Hadley turned 10 months old on September 3!
She weighed 21 lbs, 9 oz. and was 28 1/2 inches tall. (90th % and 65th %, respectively)
She wears size 18 month clothes and size 4 diapers.
So, Hadley, what have you been up to this month?
You are into EVERYTHING. You crawl at warp speed. You climb on, under, and behind furniture. You cruise along the walls and furniture. You've stood all by yourself but we are still waiting for you to take that first step.
|No Mom, you may not use the restroom...if you do, I will go straight for sharp objects and cords. Muhahaha!|
|let me get that drawer open for you|
You chow down on food. You have never been big on baby food but you inhale table food. You love meat -- you are a carnivore for sure. Your favorite foods are chicken, steak, peaches, bananas, and yogurt. You also love to drink water out of a sippy cup. You won't drink breast milk out of one but you will gulp down some water.
You nap twice a day. Usually 30 minutes in the morning and about an hour in the afternoon. Your afternoon nap almost always takes place in the car rider line. You are still not sleeping through the night and almost always end up in our bed before morning comes around. It doesn't make for great sleep but I do enjoy your snuggles. Especially since you have outgrown wanting to be rocked or cradled. You are so active and if you are awake, you want to be exploring and engaging and not so much chilling out with your mama on her lap.
|In a rare moment you let me cuddle you after nursing. I was trying so hard to memorize what you feel like in my arms as a baby. It's food for my soul and I want to cry buckets that these moments are almost gone :(|
You are learning lots of new tricks. You love to throw things on the floor and say, uh oh! You clap your hands and play pat-a-cake and cover your face to play peek-a-boo, and laugh the cutest little baby laughs while doing so. You love to dance to music. You figured out how to put balls in your gumball machine and press the lever to release them. It's so fun to watch your eyes light up when you learn something new.
You are still such a happy baby. You are also full of expression. Your silly faces crack us up.
Oh, Haddie Lou. We adore you beyond words. You are a special girl and I am so thankful to be your mama. Love you bigger than big!
