10 Months of Annie

This past week our Annie turned 10 months old!


At Annie’s nine-month doctor’s appointment, she weighed 17 pounds 15 ounces and measured 27 inches long. As our healthcare system still hadn’t brought EPIC back online following the recent cyber attack at the time of her appointment, I don’t have accurate percentiles.

Annie has been doing the classic alternating crawl all month now. She’s so speedy and trying to get into everything. Annie pulls herself up constantly on the furniture. She’s not quite cruising, but she can scoot around a little bit and let go with one hand.


Annie started clapping this past month. Of course, we love it when she claps and encourage her to keep clapping. So then Annie claps even more.

Annie’s hair grows like crazy. Her hair is longer than any of my other kids’ hair was at 10 months. For the first time, I bought a baby brush for after baths and am constantly pushing Annie’s hair out of her eyes. This past week, Annie started blowing, and she blows her hair out of her eyes, so now I’m done.


Annie has been tagging along for all of our summer adventures the past few weeks. She’s used to being out and about with us often and loves being outside so much. As long as I give Annie some time out of her stroller during longer outings, she does pretty well.

Annie is wearing a handful of 3-6 month pants and footless pajamas. Otherwise, she’s in almost all 6-month and 6-12 month clothing with a few 9-month items in the mix. I haven’t gone through the majority of 9-month clothes that I’ve saved from the other three kids yet.


Seemingly overnight, Annie went from being content to sit in her high chair and eat a few baby puffs to wanting to eat all of the food with us. Annie still doesn’t have any teeth, which limits what she’s able to eat. But she’s game to try most foods that I offer her, and she loves baby puffs more than ever. Most recently, Annie tried rice from one of our favorite Mexican restaurants and enjoyed it so much.

Annie is holding steady with eating four to six ounces of formula every two to four hours during the day. This spring, I got her a Nuk sippy cup like Olivia and Genevieve still use because she’s constantly trying to steal their cups. Annie doesn’t get much water out of the cup yet, but she loves having a cup like the big girls.


With the transition to the summer schedule, it’s been more challenging than ever getting Annie to take a long nap at home in her crib. Sometimes, she’s able to get by with a couple of shorter on the go naps. But that plan isn’t sustainable over multiple days. I work hard to make sure that we’re home long enough and that it times well for her to get a longer nap at least every second or third day.

Annie has woken up during the night a handful of times this past month. Usually, I can settle her pretty easily. Every once in a while, Annie still needs a bottle during the night. Most of the time, Annie sleeps through the night, going down around 8 or 9 p.m. and sleeping until 6 or 7 a.m.
