10 Months brought us:
and practice your White House wave.
Feeding: milk every 3 hrs around the clock. Eating solids has been put on pause. After a reaction that couldn't be eliminated and seemed to get worse with each food we had to pull everything in order to give her gut rest. Feedings were becoming a 20-30 minute scream fest, uninterested, texture issues, and developing a food aversion. Eating time became both of our least favorite activities of the day. So stopping foods and making decisions.......
After a visit with another specialist at Cincinnati Children's we determined a new plan to trial foods and were given another amino acid formula to trial on a much slower pace. 7ml increase every two bottles per 6oz breastmilk.
Awake: You have become a mover and a shaker. A week after you began crawling you started trying to pull up on things, followed by the few seconds attempt to stand on your own. We've worked up to moving from a squat to standing position a few times, which makes mommy nervous that walking is coming soon, and proud that your quads are so strong. :)
You have become a very fast little girl and will move across a room just to investigate a thumbnail size piece of paper on the floor. (Which means mommy is on constant guard). Moving makes you happy as a clam.
Dislikes: being tired, going to sleep without the woombie, being hungry (even just a little bit), having toys get out of your reach, getting something taken away from you that you have discovered. Trying to drink Neocate formula, getting your diaper changed.
Temperament: Happy, active, eager to laugh, sweet, calm, and easily entertained, strong willed, and pleasing.
Clothing Size: 9 months
New Milestones: Coasting on furniture, two new top teeth making a total of four, moving hands and understanding the concept of up and down, taking baths in the big bathtub like a big girl.
10 months doesn't seem possible, but here we sit. with a beautiful baby girl bouncing on our knees. You are sweeter, funnier, and spunkier with each passing day. We are watching you blossom into a happy little warrior we love so much.
