10 Months Young!!!!!!!!!!

Double digits!!  Look at my big girl!

All About Emily:
  • 20.5+ lbs weight, over 29” long, 44.5 cm head size
  • Wearing size 4 diapers, size 9 month clothes and size 9 month footie pjs {which are getting VERY snug on her!}
  • Has 6 teeth {3 on the top and 3 on the bottom}
  • Takes multiple steps regularly now, especially when she's not paying attention to what she's doing.  However, we haven’t seen her take 4 or more consecutive steps, which is what we’re waiting to count as officially “walking”. :)
  • Has recently started making the “g” sound, in addition to the "m" sound that she's now pretty good at ("ma ma"!).
  • Eats 3 “solid” meals a day: 1.5 oz oatmeal for breakfast, 4 oz veggie/fruit puree for lunch, and 4 oz protein puree for dinner.  She's tried a bunch of table and finger fruits and veggies, though isn’t yet a huge fan of “real” solids.  Emily dislikes chunky purees but still loves her smooth purees, and has mastered puffs and teething wafers.
  • Drinks milk and water out of a sippy cup.
  • Crawls fast as lightning, and does a funny shuffle that includes inching forward with one leg while kneeling on her other knee.  Shep calls this her Russian Jig.
  • Enjoys getting into the pantry/recycling bin/garbage can/laundry basket/dishwasher, licking the windows/dishwasher/oven, and unplugging her nightlight from the wall.

  • Fascinated by looking out the window
  • Laughs out loud when being tickled on her feet or tossed in the air.
  • Holds her arm and hand outspread like she’s yelling “hey!” to you from across the street while keeping a calm face.
  • Recently found interest in her feet again.
  • Pulls on and strokes her hair to fall asleep.
  • Enjoys resting her legs and feet up on the wall when getting her diaper changed, up on our shoulders when we’re rocking her to sleep, and up on the chair arm when I’m nursing her.
  • Understands “No”, though in her mind it just means turn and smile shyly before continuing to do what she’s not supposed to, or move slower in the hope that Mommy/Daddy won’t notice...
  • Likes to smirk and wrinkle her nose while breathing fast when she's in a silly mood.
Here are some of my favorite photos from the past month!



  1. Emily is a fun gal- so engaging and loving. Mama and Papa are doing a good job in teaching,guiding,entertaining, and giving lots of affection. She is just blossoming. Each milestone is very exciting- can't wait til she runs!!
