Ten Months of Kate Brielle!

My sweet Kate Brielle is ten months old today.  Double digits!  She looks so big to me now.  She will be walking around & climbing on furniture before I know it. Ahh!

Here's what she's been up to this month:

-Got two more teeth - she has her top two and bottom two now.  

-Had her 9 month checkup & was 18 lbs & I think 27 inches?  I don't think I wrote it down. :(  I think she was 50% for weight & 75% for height - lucky tall little girl!

-She can stand by herself - always surprises me when I see her do it.  Walking is the next milestone - eek!

-Full time growler.  

-Officially in 9-12 month clothes, size 3 diapers, & who knows about shoe size.  Kate has never worn a pair of shoes.  Second babies get jipped in the shoe department, who has time for that?!

-Survived a fall cold.  

-Still takes two naps a day - around 10 & 2:30

-Doesn't sleep through the night.  Starting to think she never will!  She always gets up once in the middle of the night to eat, & then wakes up for the day WAY early.  Motherhood is not for sissies people!  I have no desire to do any sort of "cry it out" method because when I tried it with Aubrey I lasted a whole half hour.  She'll sleep through the night when she's ready I guess.  Till then - under eye concealer, diet coke, & an occasional cat nap are my saving graces!

-I've said it before & I'll say it again - she is the sweetest, happiest, smiliest little thing & brings so much sunshine into our home.  I just love her!

Two months until the big day - and it will come all too soon.  Love this stage, and adore this baby girl!  


  1. I may have commented before saying this, but I love these posts. My baby is 8 months today and its so fun to see what he could be up to in a few months.

    1. Aww I'm glad you like them! I used to look forward to reading those posts too when Aubrey was going through her first year <3

  2. My 2.5 year old still wakes 1-3 times in the night! And I'm due to have little sister in less than two months. Ahhhh!!!! Lol. I agree, motherhood is definitely not for sisses...although sometimes I feel like one ;)

    1. Holy guacamole 1-3 times a night? So sorry! Aubrey wakes occasionally if she has a bad dream, or is sick, but usually is pretty good. I guess you'll be up with a newborn anyways right?? Lol. And I'm a total sissy sometimes too ;)
