Sloane Marie | Ten Months

What's new?
-She officially has her first tooth! I am also pretty sure she is cutting her second tooth so that should be here soon.
-She started crawling "normal". I kinda miss her little worm flop crawl.
-She can stand up using just about anything now and has started walking along furniture
-Getting dressed feels like a daily wrestling match
-She understands certain words when I talk to her, such as more, milk, Paisley, mama, dada, and all done.
-She signs more when she wants more food and all done when she is done eating. She understand when I sign milk and what that means, but she is not doing it herself yet.
-She is so busy these days that she can make a giant mess before I even realize she is doing something she shouldn't
-She is so full of personality these days and it is so much fun!

I don't want to forget the way she loves to shake her head up and down and it requires her entire body to shake. How much she loves Paisley and she can be in the middle of a meltdown and she see Paisley and will start laughing. How she loves to "get" people: "get Paisley", "get mama/dada" and "get Sloane".

Weight: No weight check this month, but she is getting heavy. At Birth: 5 pounds 6 ounces. 

Height:  I swear her legs doubled overnight. At Birth: 18.5 inches

Hair: Light Brown

Eyes: Still holding blue!

Clothes: We have anything from 6-12 months in her closet right now and still 3-6 month dresses.

Diapers: Cloth still going strong.

Nicknames: Homegirl, Princess, Beautiful, Sloane Baby

Likes:
-Paisley's water dish
-Being tickled
-Crawling and getting into everything
-Paisley (seriously, it is so cute)
-Making mom and dad laugh
-Mom and dad's phones. We have to hide them from her.

Dislikes:
-Her carseat
-The sun in her eyes
-Getting dressed

Eat: She eats anything and everything we put in front of her. She has tried so many different foods it hard to keep track anymore. Her appetite has definitely increased and she can eat more food than I would think is possible for her tiny belly. But, she acts hungry if I don't give her enough so theres no point to fight it. She is still nursing 5 times a day and eats solids at least twice a day, sometimes three times. She consistently eats breakfast first thing in the morning and dinner with us, but not always lunch just yet. It depends on the day.

Sleep: She is officially sleeping without waking at all! She was waking once a night for a quick nursing session so it wasn't bad, but I was convinced that feeding was going to be the hardest to drop. Then one night she slept all the way through the night and hasn't looked back. I was totally under the impression it was just a phase and it wouldn't last, but it has been almost a month now so I think it is here to stay. Not going to lie it is pretty nice. She goes to bed around 7:30 pm and wakes up between 8:30 and 9 every morning.

Schedule 
9:00 Wake up and nurse.
9:30 Breakfast. It has been waffles and fruit mostly, trying to branch out a little.
10:00 Play time.
11:00 Nap
12:00 Wake up and nurse.
1:00 Play time. This is usually our longest stretch of happy and awake time so if I am going to run errands it is usually during this time.
2:30 Nurse and then naptime. This nap is usually the longest anywhere from 2-3 hours.
5:00/5:30 Wake up and nurse again. Then she hangs out with me while I make dinner.
6:00 Dad is home! Then we eat dinner together.
6:30 Family playtime. My favorite part of the day.
7:15 Nurse, then bottle and usually in bed around 7:30 and down for the night!

Her schedule is pretty consistent these days which is super nice! She will be flexible when we want her to be, but when we have nothing going on she loves her routine.
