10 Months

Carina turned 10 months old! {almost 2 weeks ago} So I'm a little late...oops. She'll forgive me, right?

Milestones: You started crawling! And ever since I have been chasing after you constantly. We even had to buy you a baby jail so that I can pee in peace without fear of you toppling the TV or sticking your tongue in an electrical outlet. You are pulling up to a stand, trying to cruise along the ottoman, and starting to climb. We have been expanding your food horizons this've had chicken, beef, ham, turkey, pasta, rice, tomatoes, asparagus {changing diapers later is just lovely, let me tell you}. We went to the pumpkin patch for the first time, and you survived two 2-hour-long-each-way car rides! You had never been in a car that long before. You also had your first hysterical temper tantrum, and Mommy was lucky enough to catch it on camera!

Loves: Shoving everything imaginable in your mouth, including the penguin on the toy bar on your bouncer. You stand up and hold onto the bar while you try to get your entire mouth around the little penguin. You also squeal when I say "waddle waddle waddle" in a funny voice as you play. Your favorite toys this month include the Baby Einstein Piano, a couple of the dangly toys on the Fisher-Price Rainforest Gym, and the Fisher-Price Rainforest Soother. Often when I put you down for a nap I'll come back a few minutes later to find you standing and banging on the soother. You've figured out how to turn it on and off, too. Any and all electrical cords and my computer keyboard are also things you try your hardest to get your hands on, my crafty little devil.

Hates: Getting your diaper changed! All of a sudden a couple weeks ago you started throwing a fit every time we lay you down on your changing table. Why, little one? Are you angry that we're stealing your poop? Surely you don't want to sit all day in a sack of refuse, right? Similarly, you fuss and fight when we change your clothes. I just don't get it. You also don't like your baby jail. I thought you two were going to get along, but most of the time I feel like you're just trying to escape.

Weight & height: At Urgent Care the other night you weighed in at 17 lbs 1 oz. Your weight has really plateaued the last few months - but your doctor isn't concerned. You are just my teeny tiny peanut. At your 9 month appointment you were 28.75 inches, so I'm guessing you're a little bit longer now? Long and lean. You're in size 4 diapers still and wearing size 12 Months most of the time. I can't wait until you grow into the cute 18 Months dresses I bought you for this winter.

This time I didn't even bother to print out the "I am 10 Months Old Today" paper because I knew it would be hopeless. It would have been in her mouth and/or ripped up within minutes. She also wouldn't sit still, and then she got fussy. Fail all around.

Holy picture overload...I apologize in advance. I just couldn't not include all of these.

Not going to sit still for this, Mom!

It's all better now
Whatcha looking at?
