Watch Me Grow: 10 Months

Evelyn turned 10 months old on Monday.


She’s quickly approaching the toddler days and starting to leave the baby days behind.


I feel the same way about it.

Evelyn is into EVERYTHING.  The girl never stops.  I swear she is part energizer bunny.  If she is awake, she is on the go.

Evelyn learned to climb the stairs this month.  We’ve had a gate at the top of the stairs since she started the army crawl, and now we have one at the bottom of the stairs too.

Gates don’t keep Evelyn from getting into things though.  Thankfully big brother and big sister are good about moving her away from things that she shouldn’t get into.  But I’m pretty sure that they like moving her around more than she likes it…

In case you missed it, Evelyn said her first word this month!  We’re working on more words with her.  She likes impatiently crying out “Maaaaa” while she’s in her high chair and I’m still working to get her food on her tray.  I’m not sure if she’s trying to say “more” or “mama,” but I think we’re getting close to something.

We have fully transitioned over to regular, doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, cow’s milk based baby formula.  I took a stool sample in to the doctor’s office, and it showed no blood in it, so that means that she’s outgrown her milk protein intolerance.  Bring on the Blue Bell!

I’ve seen Evelyn get up to a full crawl a couple times.  So we know she can do it.  It’s just that she prefers her army crawl.

Evelyn is a master cruiser, and has been brave enough to let go of whatever she’s holding onto a couple times.  She can’t keep her balance long, and I’m certainly not pushing her to walk early!

I can’t believe in less than two months, we will have a one year old on our hands!  I’m soaking up all of the cuddles that I can while she’ll still let me!


Weight: About 22 pounds
Height: 28 1/2 inches
Drinking: Between 20-28 ounces of formula a day and about 4-6 ounces of water
Eating: Three meals a day.  A mix of table foods and purees
Napping: Hour long morning nap and 2-3 hour afternoon nap.  She’s starting to fight the morning nap, but I’m hoping she still holds onto it for a while.
Nighttime Sleeping: Goes down between 7:00 and 8:00, wakes up twice during the night, up for the morning around 6:30.  Will she ever sleep through the night?
Clothes: She still fits into almost all of her 6-9 months clothes, but I have started putting her into some 9-12 month stuff just since that’s what I bought for winter.
Shoes: Size 3
Diapers: Huggies Little Snugglers size 3
Words: Dada
Teeth: Two on the bottom

She is an efficient little army crawler!!

Alex army crawled until 10.5 months. And now at 14 months, he's STILL crawling.

And I'm thinking mama is right around the corner for her next word. <3
