Haley is 10 months old! Eek! I better start getting ready for her first birthday!
At 10 months old, Haley is now a champion crawler and cruiser. She’s so fast – even outside on the pavement! She just takes off down the sidewalk after her brother. She’s still cruising along on the furniture and moving between things that are close together, but hasn’t taken any steps on her own just yet. She’s been standing a lot and balancing on her own and even getting up into a standing position from sitting on the floor! I think her first steps aren’t too far behind!
She talks A LOT! Very vocal. Lots of screaming and random noises. And she says dada a lot. I’m not sure if there’s a connection or if I can consider that her first word, but I like to think so. Dada was Grady’s first word, too!
Breastfeeding is still going strong! She’s cut back a little bit during the day because she’s eating more solids, but definitely makes up for it at night. She’s eating what we eat now, just cut up in smaller pieces for the most part. Her recent favorites are eggs, toast, asparagus, and yellow peppers. She’s a much more adventurous eater than Grady and often eats more than him at meal times.
We’ve been having some pretty rough nights lately. She normally wakes up on average 3 times during the night to nurse, but we’ve had quite a few nights where she was up 5+ times. I’m pretty sure it’s just teething – we’re working on tooth #6!
They are so cute together and it makes me smile when they “play” together. We still have lots of tantrums from Grady when she touches some of his toys, but he’s getting so much better. I can’t wait to see their relationship grow!
