Food: This girl can EAT. She nurses about 4-5 times a day. I wish we could fit another time in but between playing and sleeping I haven't figured it out yet. Mostly I am just concerned that if we don't keep up good nursing habits my milk will dry up. Not ready for that yet. :( She does a mix of German jar food and table food. I hesitate to even call the jar food puree because the 10 month stuff is so chunky! For the most part she will eat anything I put in front of her. She did NOT like the swiss cheese I gave her when we were in France. She doesn't like the texture of broccoli florets so she won't pick them up, but if I put a piece in her mouth she is fine. So weird, right?
Sleep: I don't want to jinx anything, but sleep is going well. She goes to bed between 7-8 PM after bath and a story. She wakes up between 8-10 AM, depending on how her naps went the day before. She typically has two naps. Her morning nap is about 90 minutes to 2 hours after she wakes up, and then the afternoon nap seems to take place around 3:30. She's always been better with her nighttime sleep than her naps, so if she goes on a nap strike or we had a busy day she makes up for it at night.
Play:She still loves her jumperoo, and to be honest I take advantage of those moments she's in it because I know she's contained and safe! She has a gorgeous wooden walker that we bought locally but she's still too unstable on her feet. She loves standing and has just recently started lifting a foot if I hold her hand. She also loves playing with Little People. For the most part, since she's still fairly young to play with the sets I bought her I hand her one of the animals from the Farm set when I change her diaper so she doesn't roll all over the place. It really helps to have a special changing toy to keep her interested. I've been working on some sensory play pins from Pinterest and they have been hit or miss. She loves the jars but to actually touch stuff, she doesn't love that.
Milestones: She waves, signs a few words, stands, says mama, dada, and baby.
