Caroline Grace {10 Months}

Caroline Grace,

You are officially out of control these days and I am having such a hard time keeping up with you (especially at 5 months pregnant). If I take my eyes off of you for 3 seconds you are happily unloading the Tupperware drawer in the kitchen, terrorizing Charlie, throwing your paci in the bathroom toilet bowl then laughing uncontrollably, pulling every tampon and hair product out of my bathroom drawer, slapping the water out of Charlie’s water bowl, climbing up the blinds or unrolling the toilet paper onto the floor. Thank goodness you’re still a great napper and love your sleep because that is the only time your mama and daddy get to rest these days. You dropped your cuddle time in the mornings with me and now are more interested in racing towards the edge of the bed over and over again until I ultimately give up chasing after you and get up with you for the day.

In addition to your mobility you are eating us out of house and home. You are quickly ditching your purees (and bottles) and are happiest when feeding yourself table food. You eat more food during some meals than I do. For breakfast you love English muffins/toast/bagels with peanut butter, whole bananas (your favorite!!!), yogurt, scrambled eggs, diced fruit, pancakes/waffles and anything else we put in front of you really. You eat the school lunch (and steal pieces of your classmates lunches once you’ve finished yours). Your teachers say there isn’t a food you’ve disliked yet and comment daily on your hearty appetite. And for dinner we usually give you avocado, macaroni and cheese, fruit, veggies, string cheese (another favorite!!!) more yogurt and pieces of whatever we are eating. Speaking of eating, it is getting much harder to eat out with you these days. You are not a fan of the high chair at restaurants and would much prefer to crawl all over the nasty floor eating random pieces of food. Lucky for you, we don’t let you do that so instead you just throw temper tantrums at the table with us unless we share half our plate with you. No other moms warned me that our easy days of eating out together were numbered!

You are ridiculously fun and outgoing. You keep us laughing constantly at the things you do and we just adore your personality. You favor your daddy more and more each day which is totally unfair because I let you embrace adventure and explore the house while he is always one step behind you bracing for a fall, taking away the fun non-baby objects, scheduling doctors appointments every time you sneeze and worrying about you every single moment of the day. You will never fully understand the love he has for you. We both love you so dang much and constantly say to each other “Can you believe we get to keep this baby forever? We are so lucky she’s ours and that she is awesome.”



  10 Month Highlights:

  • Stats: 16.7 pounds (15%), 26.25 inches tall (3%!!!), 43.3 cm head circumference (25%) 6-9 month clothing and pajamas, size 3 diapers, 6 teeth (four on top, two on the bottom).
  • Nicknames: Muffin (shortened from Love-Muffin), Fuzzy (you still only have a bit of fuzz on your head), Pooky (or Pooks), Lovey and Monster (when you’re being mean).
  • Tricks: waving, clapping, lip smacking/popping, 5 second temper tantrums, crawling at 35 mph, pulling up, dancing (which is more like power squats), walking assisted with the walker and saying a few words (dadda, mama, baba).
  • Favorite toys: Tupperware, cups, a fresh roll of toilet paper, remotes, phones, daddy’s glasses, Charlie’s tail and your walker
  • Boycotting 4 six ounce bottles of Earth’s Best Organic Formula a day and consistently leaving anywhere from 3-4 ounces in each bottle but eating tons of table food so the doc says it’s okay.

Haha, she looks too innocent to be a monster :) My little SJ was the same - an absolute terror as soon as she was mobile but Ellie seems to be more relaxed... I can't believe how teeny little Caroline is, Ellie is almost 3kgs heavier and 7cm taller! I can't believe how much she looks like Daddy in that pic - wow! x

Happy 10 Months little one!! I have a 10 month old too and she is just as wild and crazy! Surprised to hear she's having eggs and peanut butter, out pediatrician said 1...Can't wait for her to try them both out!! We love our Inglesina Fast table chair for restaurants, it hooks right on and makes her level with us at the table and as an added bonus she can go on the inside of the booth which is so great! We eat out so often and it works so well, one of the best things we bought, try it out!! We just keep it in the car so if we go to a friends house we have it for there too it holds up to 37lbs so it will last a long time!
