ten months

Happy ten months, sweet girl!

Hollin turned ten months old today and went for her nine month check up. I just read Zane's ten month post and, randomly, he also went to his nine month check up on his ten month birthday! What a strange coincidence.

10 month stats:

*Length: 27.95 inches

*Weight: 19lb 4oz

*Head circumference: 47cm

Her height and weight were right around the 50th percentile. The nurse logged her measurements and then said, "Let me just measure her head again." I told her not to be surprised if it was big....runs in the family. She said, "Well, let me just make sure I didn't mess up.....No, I didn't! You're really 47cm!" That's like the 99th percentile or something. What can I say? My babies have lots of brains, like their daddy.

Zane's head was also 47cm at 10 months. He was one pound heavier and a few inches longer.

I can't say enough what a great big brother he is. During her exam he said, "Mama, Baby Hollin is SO cute!" and told her, "You be ok, sweet girl!" He also told me that she was 'adordable'.

The kiss was totally unprompted.
Yes, she's (almost) always this happy.
At ten months:

*Hollin has decided that she's hungry! She is finally eating solids, two to three times a day. I think she is having a big growth spurt because she has been eating a lot the past two weeks. She loves yogurt and bananas. She likes for me to peel the banana and hold it for her and then she takes big bites of it. Tonight she had blueberry yogurt, spinach, pear, and mango puree, and a french fry or two.

*I think this growth spurt is also causing her to wake up around 4:45am to eat. She goes back to sleep until about 7 or 7:30am. (I'm hoping it's a growth spurt because that would mean it's temporary and that she'll start sleeping all night again)

*She has two more top teeth coming in.

*She's still not officially crawling. She worms and rolls herself wherever she wants to go and gets there quickly. She's not trying to pull up yet. Maybe it's because I keep kicking her back down. Kidding. Sort of.

*She claps and waves. Says 'bye bye' and 'dada'. She'll say 'mama' if she's mad enough. I swear she said 'budder' (brother) today. She's very loud in the mornings right after she wakes up. Babbles and talks. LOUDLY.

*She loves when I dance with her to music. She gets tickled when we 'patty cake' and sing "If you're happy and you know it". Her favorite is playing peek-a-boo. She does this all the time.

She's smiley, happy, and giggly all day, for the most part. But she really likes to throw a fit every night while getting her diaper changed and pj's on.

*She goes to bed between 7:30 & 8:30pm. Bedtime routine consists of bath (usually every other night, because she has eczema), pj's, yellow blankie, nursing, bed. She takes a morning nap around 9 and an afternoon nap right after lunch.

*She's wearing size 3 diapers and 6-12 month clothes.

Love, love, love this baby doll and couldn't imagine life without her! She is so sweet and truly a blessing to our family.
