Leah - 10 Months



Eye Color: Hazel

Clothes:
  12/18M
Diapers:  4

Milestones:
  2/2/18: Started pulling up on furniture
Cruising, standing without holding onto anything, babbling


Best Moment(s) This Month: Leah is SO incredibly happy.  She just exudes joy from her face and smiles at everyone.  She is constantly pulling up and free standing. All day she is up/down/up/down so I just know she will be walking by her 1st birthday.


Loves:
Bottles, baby food, graham crackers, waffles, puffs
When we talk/play with her
Grant :)

Favorite Toys: She wants everything that is not a toy.  She loves flashlights, remote control, our cell phones, etc. (still true - haha!)


Hates: being sick, changing diaper/clothes, wiping her face.  She has been constantly sick since last month. She has cold after cold, ear infection after ear infection and she just recently came down with the flu.  She has been referred to an ENT to get tubes, so I am hoping that helps her.


Food:  She eats 6oz, every 3-4 hours.  She eats solids 2-4 times a day and LOVES them! She can eat so much solid food now.  She is obsessed with waffles, puffs, etc.

Looking Forward To: First birthday, talking, walking :)

Leah - 9 Months



Eye Color: Hazel


Clothes:
  12/18M

Diapers:
 
3/4

Milestones:
  1/8/18: Bottom two teeth broke through!
1/3/18: Started CRAWLING!
1/7/18: Sleeping through the night, FINALLY! (we had a few minor setbacks when her teeth started coming in, but we seem to be back to sleeping all night again. Thank goodness!)

Best Moment(s) This Month: There were so many this month! Crawling, sleeping through the night, having her reach out to us when she wants one of us to hold her - all of those have been so much fun to experience.  Sleeping all night has to be my favorite though. Mama was tired. She also experienced her first snow! Not a big fan :) She only slept all night for about 4 days and then she got hit with another double ear infection. So we are back to waking up a few times a night again :( Maybe after her ears get better it will improve?


Loves:
Bottles, baby food, graham crackers
When we talk/play with her

Favorite Toys: She wants everything that is not a toy.  She loves flashlights, remote control, our cell phones, etc. She does seem to be a fan of this super cheap dollar store toy I bought for her stocking - haha. See below :)

Hates: being sick, changing diaper/clothes, wiping her face.

Food:  She eats 6oz, every 3-4 hours.  She eats solids 2 times a day and LOVES them! We also started giving her graham crackers to get her accustomed to new textures.

Looking Forward To: First birthday, talking, walking :)

Here are a few snow day pictures of both kids. We live in Texas and only get snow about every 3 years, so we get excited - haha

Leah - 8 Months



Eye Color: Hazel/Brown

Clothes:
  12M

Diapers:
 
3


Milestones:
  Getting around via pivots and scooting. It's the strangest thing to watch her move across the room in a short amount of time, yet she isn't "crawling".  She has figured out how to roll from her back, to belly, and then get to sitting position. She is not a fan of laying down, so she was quite pleased with herself when she figured this out! She is starting to try and pull up, but hasn't succeeded just yet.

Best Moment(s) This Month: SO close to crawling! First Christmas :)


Loves:
Bottles & Solid Food
Sitting up and playing with toys
Playing with her big brother
Bouncing on the floor - haha

Favorite Toys: Anything that she can chew on. Or anything her brother has - haha

Hates: hates it when I wipe snot off of her face, change her clothes, when she eats all of the solid food and it's over :)

Food:  She eats 6oz, every 3-4 hours.  She eats solids 2 times a day and LOVES them!

Looking Forward To: STILL dreaming of when she will sleep through the night. This girl is wearing us out.

Halloween - 2017


I love Halloween! This year we had Cinderella (and her carriage) and a dinosaur! This was the first year that we let Grant choose his own costume. I was pretty surprised when he chose a dinosaur! I figured he'd choose one of the PJ Masks or Paw Patrol.

We only got a couple pictures of Grant. He was a blur most of the day/night. He was running around non stop growling like a dinosaur.  The fact that we were able to get one decent picture was a miracle.

Leah isn't mobile yet, so she was easier :)


My husband decided to get creative and turn our Radio Flyer wagon into Cinderella's carriage. This worked out great since Leah is only 6 months and has to be pushed around.



I think she was laughing at Grant here. She thinks he is hilarious!


Love this shot! My husband takes the best pictures.


Her smiles make up for all of the exhaustion :)


I love this picture.  The look Leah is giving her big brother cracks me up. I can totally see them in about 12 years and her being annoyed and exasperated with him - haha.

Leah - 5 Months



Eye Color: Dark Blue/Grey

Clothes:
  6M-9M

Diapers:
 
3
 
Milestones:
  Laughing!! Almost sitting unassisted.  Eating solids.

Best Moment(s) This Month: She laughed!! Grant was talking to her while I was washing bottles and I heard her start laughing. I was able to catch it on camera :)


Loves:
Bottles
Sitting up (Loves the Sit Me Up!)
Looking at her brother

Favorite Toys: She's starting to bat and grab the toys on her little activity gym, but that's the only interest in toys so far.

Hates: She doesn't really HATE much of anything. She's such an easy baby.  If she is full and well rested, she is a happy camper for the most part.  Lately she does get bored and doesn't like it when we leave her alone. She likes a lot of attention and face to face talking right now.


Food:  She eats 4oz, every 2-3 hours.  She started on solids last week.

Looking Forward To: Sitting completely unassisted. Crawling. Babbling. Her Halloween costume :)
