Hadley 10 months

I can't believe 10 months has come already, you are officially in double digit months! I am sitting her teary eyed as I write this, my sweet baby is growing too fast! It seems like just yesterday you were my itty bitty 8 pound squishy baby! You are will always be my sweet sweet little baby! Lots of firsts this month and I am sure many more are to come in the next few months!
Clothes: You are wearing 9 month clothes, 12 month is way too big still and most 9 month stuff you have plenty of room to grow still! I have been doing some bargain shopping for you for next year, so you have quite a few things for 24 months and 18 month stuff, plus you are have 2 girl cousins so hand me downs are awesome!

Health: You are a great eater and very healthy! You are growing and growing, which makes this mommy's heart sad and happy at the same time! You had your first fever/cold a few weeks ago, mommy was so sad to leave you to go to work but i knew you were in great hands.

Diet:  You are still exclusively breast fed and also getting puffs, lil crunchies, baby food and also we are also giving you stuff we are eating for the most part you seem to like everything except peas and peaches, you love toast and any fruit! right now you are really loving watermelon haha! You take a bottle about every 4 hours and you nurse when I am home about that amount of time too. You are a good eater and don't seem to be picky which is good because your mommy is still a picky eater.

Sleep:  You have finally starting sleeping through the night again, but you every once in awhile you like to get up and nurse back to sleep which I am ok with because I know sooner rather than later that, that you won't want to do that anymore because you are growing so fast! You love to get up and jump up and down in the crib and let us know you are up! You go back down after you get up in the morning to nurse for about 90 minutes and then you take 2 naps during the day, usually a 1 hour nap and a 2 hour nap late afternoon, if i am lucky you will take a 30 minute snooze for me at night but usually you dont' go to sleep until around 10:30 or 11:00 at night!

Baby Gear:  You are moving and crawling, pulling yourself up so you love your play table, you still love to be worn in your Ergo carrier, you love your Minnie doll, Sophie, my pal violet, your walk behind motorcycle, your blocks and your favorite your baby Einstein toy. You have also found a love for empty water bottles! You also love BOOKS,  I swear you would "eat" all of them if you could :) You also love any toy that sings the ABC's haha!

Likes:  Baths, crawling, trying to catch Macy, splashing in Macy's water dish, drinking out of your sippy cup swinging at the park, sleeping, snuggle time with mommy and daddy, rocking in your rocker, your sister Macy, feeding time, your crib, pacifiers, car rides, listening to music, eating puffs and sharing them with Macy, being outside watering the plants, shopping with mommy :)  you also love the pool and stroller rides.

Dislikes:  Diaper changes, being hungry, running out of puffs on your high chair and also cold diaper wipes and you do not like to be woken up, getting out of the bath and just a recently getting put into your car seat once you are in you are fine, but it is a wrestling match to get you in the seat haha!

Hadley, the last 10 months have the best months of my life, we prayed wished for you for so many years you have fulfilled every wish we had! We are so excited to watch you grow into a sweet little girl, but slow down a bit ;) You have started to take a few steps on your own and I was so happy I was home to witness your first steps on your own which was on August 28th. You also took your first girls shopping trip to Mall of America in Minneapolis on August 23rd, you also stayed in a hotel for the first time, you did a great job on the 4+ hour drive there and back, but you wanted to sleep with mommy and not in your pack in play! You were also an amazing trooper while shopping you will be quite the little shopper in a few years! We love you to the moon and beyond Hadley Marie! Happy 10 month sweet girl.
