We’ve been experiencing some technical difficulties with our Macbook lately, which is why posts are so, so, so late. That — and the fact that time is passing way too quickly with two little girls. Sigh.
Happy 10 months, baby girl! Just like months’ past, time is flying by too quickly — as evidenced by the fact that I cannot keep up with these blog posts. You are getting so big, so fun and so uniquely you.
Life slowed down a little bit in September. Charlotte started school again, and you and I were able to get back into more of a routine. You do, however, have days where we’re out and about and you don’t get a morning nap — but you’re doing fine with that! Fortunately, you’ve gotten more flexible as you’ve gotten older, which you need to be if you’re going to hang with this family.
You’ve also become more like a little kid than a baby as evidenced by the fact the you can find your own things to entertain you. You love playing at the library or at The Urban Chalkboard, an indoor play area for little kids. When we’re out and about, you’re also a big people watcher.
Two days after you started crawling, you began pulling up and cruising around furniture. You LOVE to cruise along the furniture, but thank goodness, you’re still a slow-moving crawler and cruiser.
We’re so looking forward to your birthday that’s just around the corner.
Love you big girl,
Mom and Dad

Amelia Likes: Cruising, playing with toys, turning pages in books and exploring EVERYTHING.
Amelia Dislikes: Still getting ready for bed and not getting her way.
Firsts: Cruising and attempts at talking by saying “Dada” and “Mama.”
Diapers: Amelia is still in medium cloth diapers at home and size 3 disposables.
Sleep: We’ve officially dropped the third nap — Hooray!!! Amelia sleeps from 7:30 or 8 p.m. to about 7 a.m. She also takes two naps a day that are anywhere from an hour and a half to two hours. This girl LOVES her sleep, goes down right away and doesn’t make a peep all night.
Feed: Still nursing four times a day! We have introduced a sippy cup, and she doesn’t hate it. She just needs to work a little more on perfecting her technique. In addition to nursing and baby food, Amelia has really been experimenting with our food. She still has a pretty bad gag reflex so we’re just waiting that out.
