Peyton Eve: Ten Months

Lord, help me. My baby is 10 months old. In two short (like don't even try to blink) months, Peyton will be ONE. A whole year old. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's talk about the sweetest ten month old you've ever seen.

According to our handy dandy bathroom scale, Peyton now weighs 17 lbs. 12 oz. She wears mostly nine month clothes (or 6-12 months in baby Gap and Old Navy) and size 3 diapers.

Peyton at TEN months:

Weight: 17 lbs. 12 oz. 
Birth: 6 lbs. 10 oz.

Peyton Loves: 
Playing in the pool
Going for walks
Generally being outside
Crab walking everywhere 
Her playroom

Peyton Hates:
Teething and on that note, infant tylenol 
Being any place where she can't crawl around 
Being hosed down after all. the. blowouts. (still happening in the car seat a lot. Advice?!)

What's New This Month:

1. Peyton got TWO more teeth this month, making six baby teeth in total! The last one was pretty rough, as previously mentioned. I'm not sure if it was all teething related or if there were some other issues presenting themselves at the same time, but P had a pretty rough few days/nights. Which means mama and dada had a few rough days/nights as well. Luckily, whatever was ailing her has subsided for now and our great sleeper is currently back. 

2. Mama is officially done pumping/nursing. This was bittersweet for me. Bitter because that bonding time in Peyton's life is now over, but sweet because...hallelujah, my body is all mine again! I can finally go for jogs without having to wear three sports bras and sleep on my stomach again. It's the little things, people! I have a decent amount of milk stored up from the past nine months, so I've been stretching that out as best as possible by mixing it half and half with ready-to-feed formula. Peyton chugs it down just like she would any other bottle, so it's been working well for us! 

3. P has mastered the wave and has started to say her own little high pitched version of "hi" along with it. Also in her bag of tricks is clapping, standing on her own, squealing like a pig (my least favorite), and high fives. She can repeat mama and dada and is starting to make the "p" sound when we say her name. So basically, she's a baby genius. My personal favorite is singing, "if you're happy and you know it..." and she immediately starts clapping her hands. Ugh, she's too cute, ya'll. Too cute.

4. I swear this kiddo is going to be walking before our next month check-in. She pulls up on everything and can walk the perimeter of our coffee table now. She also LOVES to push her walking toys around our bedroom and her playroom. She walks fairly well when you're holding both her hands, but is still pretty unsteady when you let go of one hand. 

5. Peyton went on her first airplane this month. We flew to Miami to visit family and she was such a champ. She sucked her bottle down during take off, fussed for a minute or two, and then slept until the wheels literally hit the ground two hours later. We leave Wednesday for Boston (YAY!!) at 10 pm (BOO!) so i'll be really curious to see how she handles the late night travels. Pray for us, ya'll.

6. P pretty much eats what we eat these days. Some of her favorites include rice, pasta, eggs, watermelon, blueberries, zucchini, cheese, and puffs. She rarely refuses to eat what we put in front of her though, which has been pretty awesome. I love watching her try new foods on a regular basis and am still just so surprised that she eats what she does and as much as she does each day!
