Molly 10 Months!

Time continues to fly by! I can't believe that in two months we'll be celebrating Molly's birthday. Here's what our sweetheart's been up to this month:

Molly is wearing size 18 month clothes and size 4 diapers. She can actually fit into some things that she had previously outgrown because she has slimmed down some. 

She is nursing 5 times a day and eating 3 solid meals: baby food and finger foods. Some new foods this month are avocado (her new favorite!), eggs, yogurt, and some exotic foods like beets, apricot, and prunes thanks to some baby food my wonderful mother-in-law sent over. :)

Her sleeping has (finally) become more consistent and reliable. She sleeps from 7 PM to 7 AM and takes two naps. Her morning nap is usually 30-45 minutes and her afternoon nap is 1-1 1/2 hours. I don't think she'll be taking a morning nap much longer, but I'm hoping to be wrong about that!

Molly is saying her first word: mama. She likes to say it all the time! :)

Molly is pulling up all over the place. She pretty much wants to stand all the time. She is a really fast crawler too, you have to watch her carefully. 

Her hair is really starting to fill in...and she has precious curls!

When people are clapping or you ask her to clap, Molly will pat her side with one hand.

Molly loves to hold your hands and lay back when she's sitting on your lap.

Laughing and squealing at her brother is still a favorite activity.

She loves to get in bed with us first thing in the morning. It's become a sweet tradition. 

She loves to be cuddled and held, but only by mommy and daddy!

She does not enjoy playing alone, she cries when you leave the room. 

She has recently started to really enjoy playing outside. She takes turns riding on Graham's push toys. 

Molly is such a precious, sweet little ball of sunshine! I've said it before, but taking care of her is just a pleasure. We can't imagine what our family would be like without her!

  1. Love, love, LOVE that bundle of Molly. She is such a cutie! I wish I could be there to see all these changes firsthand, but this blog post almost made me feel like I AM there watching this girl grow. :)
