Remington Rose ♥ 10 Months

 
Well look whose 10 months old already?! As of last week that is! It seems like just yesterday this sassy girl was born and I can't believe we are so close to her 1st birthday! 
Weight/Length: 22 lbs and 28.5" long as of her last Dr. Appointment
Clothes: 12 months and size 3 shoes
Sleep HabitsWE ARE IMPROVING!!! Michael and I decided we really needed to work on letting her cry it out. Which is SO hard to do. Especially considering she was still getting up to eat through the night so I was really worried that she was hungry. We decided to start giving her one last bottle when she started getting tired, regardless of when she had her previous bottle. This way we would know she was going to sleep with a full belly. For the first 3 days I think the longest she would cry was maybe 20 minutes (if that). She would wake up after 4-6 hours and we would leave her to cry herself back to sleep. A few times at the beginning she just wasn't going back to sleep so I would feed her and put her back to bed. Luckily, we only had to do that for a few days before she would fall back to sleep within less than 5 minutes.
Long story short, as of today, she is typically going to bed sometime between 8-9pm and sleeping until 7-8am. She does still wake up 2-3 times through the night, however she cries herself right back to sleep within minutes. We do think that the white noise app and the night time diapers have helped as well! Sometimes I run to diffuser with peace and calming, lavender, or gentle baby and that helps too!
Eating Habits: Little Miss Piggy loooves to eat! She especially likes to share whatever Michael or I eat. Fruit is probably her favorite. She also loves toast and pasta. She dislikes a lot of stuff.
DiapersShe is still in size 4 Honest diapers. We're on our second pack of Honest overnights and so far I think they do absorb more and have helped our transition through the night!
Appearance: She still has her chubby little legs and that big ol pot belly! Her hair is thickening up which makes it seem to me more of a dirty blonde color. She has 7 teeth total (4 on top, 3 on bottom). She also has a mild case of eczema.
Nicknames: Stinky, Sassy pants, Remi, Remi Roo, Tiny, Tiny Toots, Tootsies, Baby
FirstsI can't even keep track!
Doing/LearningShe has went from walking to running (at times). She's learned that I point my finger when I tell her no, so now she points her finger back at me. She says Mama (sometimes). She talks and makes the cutest noises as if she's having a conversation with herself. She likes to feed the dogs or just hold food out for them to sniff.
Likes: Finding the remote is her daily goal and she gets so excited when she gets it. She also likes to carry around our iPhones. She also really likes the dogs, but they don't like her very much. :( Stuffed animals, the dogs toys, anything that makes noise, books with animals, unfolding laundry, watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Mama's makeup bag, bathtime, and her new car that she can ride in.
Dislikes: She dislikes being told no, wearing socks, having something taken away from her, when she is hungry or tired and you set her down or walk out of her sight she acts like the world is ending. She especially dislikes when we go on the other side of the dog gate and keep her locked out. She still isn't a fan of riding in the pickup but she's getting a little better.  
Mommy's FeelingsHaving Michael home for the last 6 weeks has been very refreshing. I feel like I've regained some sanity and maybe even caught up on some sleep! Time is definitely flying and I'm trying to soak it all in while I can!

  2. I love that age! (Minus the sleep issues, Alayna didn't sleep through the night until she was 2:/)

  3. Those baby blues! Such a cutie. Glad sleep has gotten better for you! We've been doing more cry it out too and it has really helped. Our pediatrician told me recently that if he wants a bottle in the middle of the night and he just won't go back to sleep to give him water instead of formula/milk so he doesn't get used to getting the extra calories at that time. Just a thought!

  4. What a sweet post, Julie! She looks just like you; it's mind boggling. Our dogs aren't huge fans of little ones either (jealousy, I think), but hopefully that will change when we have our own! Can't wait to see what you have planned for her first birthday :)
