10 Month Update

Anne's new love is to open and close doors.  Because of this, Steve has installed safety locks on the drawers and cabinets in the kitchen and bathroom.

 She loves to explore.  She first task each morning is to pull all her toys off the shelf and play with all of them.
 When ever possible, she wants to break out of her baby gate.  The park is her favorite place to go.
Chick Fila's Cow Appreciation Day
She loves to eat!
Her first 4-H fair.  The Elkhart County Fair is huge. She loved seeing all the animals.
At the Amish Acres Arts and Craft Festival, she saw her first puppet show.  She was just enthralled in the show.

Weight: 16 lbs, 2 oz
Height: 26.5 inches

Eating: She is still nursing around the clock.  She prefers to feed herself solid foods to getting fed purees.  We have breakfast, a mid-morning snack, lunch, an afternoon snack, dinner, then a bedtime snack.  This routine seems to working.  There haven't been many foods that we have had her try that she hasn't liked.
So far:
Thumbs Up: sweet potatoes, green beans, applesauce, avocado, peas, squash, carrots, bananas, whole wheat cereal, guava, watermelon, pasta with sauce, meatballs, yogurt with any fruit, BBQ anything, kidney beans

Thumbs Down: oatmeal cereal, spinach, peaches, any pureed meats (but she will eat chicken right off the bone cut into pieces)

Sleeping: Not much has changed in the sleeping department.  She still nurses around the clock, waking up every 3-4 hours during the night.  I hoping this habit breaks soon.
           * She is growing and changing everyday.  She just loves to explore and learn new things.
* She is crawling everywhere and getting into everything.
* She can wave now.

* Her favorite word to say is "dada."  She babbles it all day to her toys and anyone who will listen.

*Anne has 5 teeth now.  Two on the bottom and 3 on top.

  1. Nope. No way she's ten months. Don't believe you. ;)

    G.T. eats six times a day as well. It's nuts how much food that tiny body can pack away.
