Clara 10 months

Here's our girl at 10 months old!

March 2, 2013

Playing with her piano (by far her fav toy right now)
Playing in her pinto beans & macaroni noodles (therapy exercise) although we have to watch her now that she's putting everything in her mouth!
Playing in the bathtub
Playing in front of a mirror

Does not love:
Sun in her eyes
Any form of vitamin/medicine
When we try to get boogers out of her nose
Balancing on the yoga ball (therapy exercise)
When we try to manipulate her hands/arms to practice certain things (therapy exercise)

Takes 4 bottles a day with a breakfast (rice cereal w/ a fruit), lunch (veg and a fruit if she will take both) and dinner (veg and a fruit or rice cereal mixed with whatever we have on hand).

AWESOME! She's become a little more predictable in her patterns since 8 and 9 months. While some nights are thrown off by sickness or teething, as expected, most nights she sleeps 7:30 or 8pm - 7-7:30am. AMAZING! On occasion she will wake up to eat, but I'd say this happens maybe 2-3 nights out of the week, and she goes back down easily. Hallelujah. She takes two naps a day that typically fall around 10 or 10:30am and again about 2:30 or 3pm. We don't let her nap much past 5pm, to make sure she will keep an early bedtime.

Schedule at 10 months:
Most days look a little something like this, give or take 30 minutes on either end. . .
7:30am wake
8am Bottle
9am Breakfast
10 or 10:30 Nap
12:00 Bottle
1pm Lunch
2:30 or 3pm - Nap
4pm Bottle
6pm Dinner
7:30 Bottle/Bed

She has mastered the paci and can successfully take it out and put it in no problem!!
Reaching up a lot more
Pushing up on arms a lot more
Putting everything in her mouth (except any form of puff, cheerio, or food!)
Will get into the crawling position (OT suspects she might crawl before 1yr)
The transition from tummy/back to sitting is becoming much more seamless
Mimics us here and there (usually will only preform for Brandon)
Making a few more sounds, more frequently
Another top tooth cut the gums (total of 4 now = 2 on top, 2 on bottom)

A few other things:
Size 2 diapers
Size 2 overnights
12 month clothes (some 9 month depending on brand)
Size 1 shoe
Weaned off reflux meds, so hoping we are done for good
Sneezes ALL the time (has since the newborn days, prob safe to say she's going to have allergies)


Sporting her first pig tails :)

Meeting a few of the Duck Dynasty crew!!!!!

Getting to play in the big kid therapy room last Friday

Playing with her cousin, Sophie (& Josiah, not pictured), while their baby brother, Eli was being born!

So that's where we are at 10 months. Can't believe it's time to start planning her one year birthday!
