Emilie - Ten Months

{Trying to get this months photo was impossible! She was all over the place trying to crawl off!}

Emilie is in size 4+ nappies and wearing mostly 9-12 month clothes with a few 6-9 months thrown in. She is getting weighed next week but baby girl is getting heavy! 

Eating - Emilie has come on leaps and bounds with her food this month! She has dropped from 4 bottles a day to 3 and is no longer gagging/choking/vomiting on every lump that she comes across. She can now manage a lot of different soft foods as long as they are tiny pieces. She loves bananas, yoghurts, cheese and strawberries. I'm searching for more fingers foods that she can tolerate but it's been a bit of a struggle. She's at that awkward stage where she wants to progress from puree's but cannot eat a big enough range of 'normal' foods yet. It's a slow progress but she's done so well this month. I was really starting to worry for a bit there!

Sleeping - Her sleeping has also gotten better this month *touch wood* :) She has gone from 3 naps a day down to 2. A small one in the morning and then a long nap at 12.30. Most days she needs settling back to sleep a couple of times during this nap but two days this week she slept a full two hours before waking. I think blacking out the windows has helped. She goes to bed at 6.45pm and most nights sleeps until 5am ish before needing to be settled back to sleep. 

Milestone - She is using everything to pull herself up. The TV unit, the sofa, the coffee table, the stair gates, my leg.. Literally whatever is available. She hasn't quite mastered sitting herself back down again yet so as soon as she is bored there are tears until I help her. This happens about a thousand times a day! This past week she has also started cruising around the furniture.

Gives kisses, gives cuddles & points.. It feels like everyday she is doing something new. 

Now has two teeth and says Mama, Dada, Bir (Bird) & Ba (Bath) 

Loves - Standing, strawberries, being outside, James, bath time, her brothers toy keyboard, birds, when I vacuum. 

Hates - Nappy changes - she starts screaming as soon as I get a nappy out, getting dressed, anyone picking her up that isn't Anthony or me. 

Overall this month has been good. Emilie is still a sensitive little soul that is easily upset. I think part of it is her silent reflux (when will that end?!) and part of it is just her personality. James is the same way but as he's gotten older he can vocalise his feelings rather than just screaming. She is at such a fun age though and when she is happy, she is SO happy! 

Happy TEN months Peanut!
