Ten Months: A Letter

March 28, 2015

Dear Molly Ann,

Wow!  10 months!  You are getting so big!  You are growing and learning so fast; we can hardly keep up with you.  You are funny, silly and a little bit of a stinker:)

You started the month with another ear infection, which made your third!  This was your hardest one yet...throwing up, crying in pain, and not eating very much at all!  It made Mama really nervous, but we finally got you to drink from your sippy cup, which you got pretty good at.  One more, little one, and we'll have to get tubes:(

Speaking of eating, you eat anything and everything we put in front of you!  You have eaten sausage, pizza, fish sticks, carrots, potatoes, green beans, corn, strawberries, chicken, etc!  You love all of it:)  You still eat your baby food pretty good, for the most part, so we just mix and match.  You aren't total people food, but it won't take long:)  You drink from your sippy cup every night before bed, but you don't hold it very well.  We'll have to work on that.

Your typical schedule is:
-Wake at 6:45a (on a school day) and eat 4oz oatmeal (with formula) and yogurt/fruit
-Nap at 9a
-Wake at 11a and play
-Eat Step 2 veggies and 6-7oz bottle; then snack on the lunch served at Mrs. Kelly's or home
-Nap at 1:30p
-Wake at 3:30p and play
-Eat 7oz bottle at 4:30p
-Eat veggies and fruit at 6p; then snack on the dinner
-Drink 4-5oz formula from your cup at 7:15p
-Go to sleep at 7:30p

You like to be rocked now, but you don't have to be.  But I'll take it when you let us:)

You are on the go all the time now!  You are officially crawling and pulling up and you don't like to just sit.  You have gone from crawling to sitting a few times, but not on a regular basis.  You don't want to sit still!  You are content to play on your belly:)  Even in the bathtub!  It's hard to keep you on your bottom, so we can't put much water in there.  You want to be on your belly!  Two of your favorite places to be on in Jovie's dog bed and in brother's chair.  You love to crawl in there and you laugh so hard and bury your head in there when we come to get you out:)

You had your first Spring Break and we got to do a lot of fun stuff with family!  You went on the swing and slide for the first time at the park (with our help), you went on your first horse ride (with Mama), went to the zoo again, met Aunt Jana for the first time, and met the Easter Bunny!  We had a great time:)

You are officially in 12 month clothes and still in size 3 diapers.  You babble a lot, but still don't say anything officially.  You clap every time we say "Yea" and you wrinkle your nose now when you smile and show your top 2 teeth (you have 3 now!).  You smile when we tell you know and just start crawling faster and you want to watch your brother at all times!

We are so excited to celebrate Spring with you.  We've almost lived in this house for a year and we can't wait to really enjoy this beautiful weather with you:)

We love you so much!

Mama and Daddy
