10 Months

1) Baby Name and Age: Elizabeth, 10 months as of 03/07

2) Weight/length/clothing size being worn: She was 20 lbs before she got sick last week. As far as I know she's in the 27-28 inch length range, and she just switched clothing size to 12 months.

3) Food! Formula? Breastmilk? Combo? Fill us in: Formula and solids. She rarely takes the purees anymore though, she only wants toddler food. We feed her everything we eat (that she is allowed before the age of one). She gets about 24-32 oz of formula a day plus 3-4 meals of solids. She takes in so much, but she is so active that she needs it.

4) Sleep habits: We have her in bed any time between 8 and 10 pm and she wakes any time between 5 and 7 am. Sometimes she wakes during the night for a bottle, but only if she didn't want to eat her toddler food for dinner the night before. I try and get her to take 2-3 naps a day, but I'm lucky if I get 2. Usually she's so curious about what's going on around the house that she won't go down for a nap unless I put her in the car and go somewhere.

5) What is your baby's day like (routine?): wake up, bottle, play, breakfast/bottle, play, bottle, nap (if I can get her to), play, lunch, play, nap (again, it's iffy), play, bottle/snack, play, nap (maybe), dinner, bath, play, bottle, bed

6) What is driving you crazy, if anything: She was sick for a week and that drove me mad. She was so pathetic looking and I just held her and cuddled her. When she finally started feeling better she wanted to keep cuddling and being held. I finally got her back to going down by herself and playing instead of me having to hold her while she slept and me holding her all day. Other than last week, she doesn't really do anything that drives me bonkers. She actually listens when I tell her no (at least most of the time, other times I can distract her enough to make her stop) and plays by herself really well.

7) Baby milestones: Crawls, cruises, feeds self, drinks from sippy cup and can hold it herself. She stood unassisted for about 2 seconds last week, but has yet to try again. She goes around the house looking for me if she can't see me (I'm either in the computer room looking at her or in our bedroom which is the second place she always looks). She's very good with the animals, is always gentle with them (this amazes me b/c I thought I would have to fight her to be gentle, but she just naturally does it. Makes me so proud!).

Since I didn't do a 9 month update, I added pictures from the last 2 months.
