Mollie Lynn you are 10 months old!
What have you been up to these days?
You weigh 19 pounds. You are very long and lean.
You are wearing size 3 diapers.
You wear 6-12 month clothes depending on the brand.
You have a little light brown hair. I think it's going to be pretty straight with a few curls. Because you don't have much hair, I am always putting headbands on you. You are always taking them off! If I can get you distracted, you will usually forget about it and leave it alone.
You take one nap a day at the same time as Matthew, for about 3 hours. You sleep 11.5-12 hours at night. You sleep best in your own crib, and with 2 binkies- one in your mouth, one in your hand.
You are right in the transition stage where you probably could still take 2 naps a day, but we stretch you a little so that you and Matthew stay on the same schedule. To help with some evening fussiness, especially close to dinner, I have been putting you in your crib for some quite time. You get a bottle, a few soft toys, music and your lamp turned on. A couple of times you have fallen asleep, and other times its been a great place for you to play quietly and buy me a little bit of time to prepare dinner!
You crawl everywhere. You are pulling up on everything, and walking along furniture and with your walk-a-long, You stand by yourself but aren't taking any steps yet.
You mimick noises and love to fake cough.
You say "hi" in the cutest high pitched voice. You wave all the time.
Anything and everything finds it's way to your mouth.
You love to "show" us your toys, food, bottle, or anything you aren't supposed to have (lately it seems like about everything!)
You sit on your knees like a little froggy.
Your love to dance. Your favorite song is "Hot Dog" from Mickey.
You love to jump up and down in your crib while holding onto the rail. I usually know you are awake, because I hear squealing and thuds from your bouncing. The only tough part is when you bump your lip. You turn into a drama queen really quick!
At the end of this month, you had a nasty, snotty cold, cough and fever for about a week. We had some long nights filled with lots of snuggles.
Some of your favorite songs are Jesus Loves Me, You Are My Sunshine, and Happy and You Know It. You clap your hands when we sing Happy and You Know It.
You think it's funny when Mommy uses the vacuum and are very intrigued by it. You like to "help" Mommy with the dishes.
You like to climb the stairs and give high fives.
You are absolutely smitten by your brother! I LOVE watching you two play together.
Mollie Lynn, you are a blessing from God. I thank Hm daily for you. I can't believe you are growing up so fast!
