Lizzy: 10 months


How time flies! My little baby turned 10 months a week ago! I can’t believe how fast she’s growing… and how fast she’s reaching her milestones. I’ve been semi-good taking monthly pics, but really didn’t have time to write a full post… so I’m trying to do every 3 months or so. She is definitely reaching milestones sooner than Sofia. She started cruising at 9.5 months, currently cruising “professionally” around her crib like nobody business. She can spend easily over an hour turning around her crib without many a sound. πŸ™‚

Her personality is showing too. She laughs a lot and easily be amused by us. She loves waving her hands requesting to be kissed.

Sleeping: she still sleeps very well. Takes two naps a day. Until last week, she’d take 2-2.5 hrs nap in the morning from 9-11:30 and 1.5-2 hrs nap in the afternoon from 2.30 – 4pm. But this week she only takes 1-1.5 hrs in the morning, and another 1.5 hrs in the afternoon. But she can spend more time in the crib playing by herself. At night, she’s usually in bed by 7:30pm and sleep through the night until 7-8am.

Eating: she’s such a good eater. Thank God!!! She drinks breastmilk during the day and I nurse her before bed at night. Her breakfast start with solid (homemade puree made with sweet potato/zucchini/pear/banana/pea), followed by a bottle of breastmilk (5-8oz.). Then for lunch, she’s been having 1-2 pancakes made with breastmilk, whole wheat flour, baby oatmeal and egg yolk. Also some fruit or frozen peas, followed by another bottle (5-8oz.). In the afternoon, she’d have some fruit/yogurt, and another 4oz. of milk. In the evening, when we have dinner, she’d have some puffs so she can nurse well before bed. This girl seems to be bottomless. Whenever we give her food, she’d take it. And often times, if she wants food, she’d let us know. Started at 9.5 months, she’s really good feeding herself. She can grab food as small as green peas and put it into her mouth. She takes blueberries, raspberries, bananas without any problem. We give her big pieces and she has no problem eating them with only two teeth.

she treats veggies as candies…

she makes a really funny gesture. Every time she puts food into her mouth, her right hand always push it into her mouth. This gesture continues even when we feed her puree/yogurt. Really cute.

when we go to parties, as long as she has food in front of her.. she’s quiet and concentrated

She always loves playing with Sofia. Sofia could be annoying sometimes, not sharing toys with her… but she’s still loving her sister… following her. Her face lights up when Sofia comes home. Sisters’ love is there for sure.

I am already missing her babyhood. I enjoy every night our nursing session so much that I don’t want it to end.. like ever. Although it’s unrealistic and inconvenient, I love it so much that I’m thinking I might go beyond 14.5 months this time. Starting at 9 months, I’ve cut one pumping session at work because freezer is full, so we really need to use up frozen milk. Now I pump first thing in the morning, once around lunch time, and nurse her at night. By mid-march, I’ll cut one more session, so I’ll be pumping only in the morning and nurse her at night. If my milk supply regulates well like that… I might keep going until she’s 2?

My love to her grows everyday… her smile is contagious… her cheek so delicious… her singing so angelical. She’s our angel. I wish I could keep her at current stage forever. πŸ™‚
