10 months: little love letters

You turned ten months old on Friday the thirteenth! How fun...and freaky!! :)

*You did not have a well-child check up this month. I am not 100% sure of your weight and length.
*You are comfortably wearing size 6-9 month onesies and pants. You wear the occasional 12 months. And when there is nothing left to wear you can still fit into your 3-6 months clothes, but the pants are too short :)

*You are only taking three bottles a day now: morning, afternoon nap, and before bed.
*You eat cereal mid-morning.
*When we eat dinner you eat a bowl of veggies that usually includes peas, corn, green beans, and sometimes sweet potatoes. You always eat them in this order: sweet potatoes (if you have them) corn, peas, and green beans if you have no other option. You just really don't like green beans that much.
*You have mastered drinking out of a sippy cup, finally! You drink water with your cup throughout the day. When you are really thirsty you drink it really well. When you are just drinking it because you like it, you drink it so fast that it all falls out of your mouth. You will spend 95% of the day soaking wet.

*You usually start winding down for bed around 8/8:30 pm. Bath-Bottle-Bed...
*Here lately, it is becoming near close to impossible to get you to sleep. You see, Mommy and Daddy made a big big mistake when putting you to bed for the last ten months. We rock you until you're good and asleep then we lay you down. Now we've created a little cute monster!! UH OH!!!!! Almost every night this week I've had to lay you down, AWAKE, after thirty or forty five minutes of rocking you. You cry, but eventually roll around and fall asleep.

Nap time: You're getting so long

-Developments / Events:
*(3/23/2012) You woke up with a few bumps around your lower lip and chin. I attributed it to all the drool from cutting another tooth. Later, I went to wipe your hand off from eating lunch. You pulled you hand away and gave me a dirty look. Thats when I noticed all the bumps on your hand! HAND, FOOT, AND MOUTH VIRUS!
*You new thing right now is dancing. I will say "Shake your booty. Shake your booty. Dance! Dance! Shake your booty." And you start movin' and groovin'. You also dance when your toys play music or when we are singing at church. One day, I'll tell you it's technically against our religion to dance. But until then...Shake your booty, baby!
*You've really been "letting go" a lot lately. You will pull up to something then just let go and stand there. You do it, unconsciously, when you are holding something too. You act as if you think the item your holding will hold you up? You've also tried standing up in the middle of the room a few times.
*Your newest thing is what we call "Old Man Face." You make this face when someone tells you no, takes something away from you, or something happens that you don't like. You give "old man face" to let everyone know your disapproval of what just happened. You're becoming very very expressive with your face and emotions.
*You had your first Easter this month. You wore a pretty poofy purple dress to church. After church, we changed you into the cutest little pink bunny costume. You enjoyed your first Easter egg hunt too. I think you loved all your goodies! :)
*I discovered you now have six teeth. You had two on top and two on bottom. But I discovered you have one coming in on both top and bottom. That explains the slobber and snotty nose...

 NO ONE believed this was you when they saw the picture!
My sweet Hadley girl, you're turning into such a little hand full. But You're too cute and fun to complain! I can't wait to see you reach your next milestones. You get pretty excited for yourself, which is always hilarious! :)

I'll love you forever and ever! I promise!
