Baby Scarlett, 10 months old!

Monday, March 3, 2014

Scarlett is wearing her monthly stickers c/o the baby bump bundle
Scarlett's headband c/o Sweet Angel Kreations 

Weight: Scarlett is somewhere around the 16 lb marker!  She's still so petite, but she is healthy as ever! We're still in size 2 diapers, but we will be moving to size 3 soon. I said the same thing last month then switched to size 3 and they swallowed her hiny! I think she'll need another few weeks. 

Health: Doing great! She's been very happy and healthy this month which makes us very happy! Her first tooth came in and we didn't even know it. She handled it really well. Hopefully the others will be the same.      


And I PROMISE I will be posting her nursery before she turns 1. Promise! There are literally two tiny things left to paint and hang in here room and Joel and I always just forget. 

Sleep: Scarlett is sleeping really well. She sleeps from 7:30- 6 or 7:30. It really varies. She wakes up early and late some mornings. She has two good naps per day. One good morning nap and a descent afternoon nap with a cat nap somwhere in the afternoon for about 30 minutes. 

Our schedule is: 
6:30 or 7- Awake/Nurse
8:00- baby food
9:00ish- Nap (30 mins) 
11:45- nurse
12:00- Baby food 
12:30/1- Nap (45 mins)
3:00ish- Snack (finger foods) or nurse
4:00/4:30- Nap (30 mins)
5:45/6:00 Baby food
6:30- Bath
7:00- Bedtime/Nurse

Social: This month was low key which I am happy about. Besides having cabin fever most days due to the snow we've stayed indoors most days and remained local on the weekends.   




Diet: Still doing awesome in breastfeeding department! She nurses between 3-4 times per day. I can tell my supply is dwindling as Scarlett doesn't really "tell me" when she wants to eat and is usually too busy playing to be hungry. We have started to give her a bottle of formula a day just to make sure her teeny self is getting an additional feed.  

Clothes: 6-12 month clothes are what we mostly put her in. 9 month is a bit more fitting. Some 3-6 month outfits she still fits in as well.    



Baby Gear Love: Scarlett is loving her activity table lately. She enjoys walking around it most and pressing the buttons. Right now she is just into whatever she isn't supposed to be :) Last week we got a package from my parents and I left the cardboard box out and it entertained her for almost an hour. I couldn't believe it! She also enjoys the Melissa & Dough puzzles. She is a studier and likes to dissect things. 

Crying: She only cries when she is hungry, sick, tired, or I walk out of the room. Happy to report that she is doing better on her own and I can strategically leave the room and have little issues. She cries when we change her diaper, I must have toys and paci's on the table or else I'm in for a meltdown. 





Likes: She has become a PACI baby! I still don't believe it as I type, but she loves her paci. I think it is because she is teething and likes it to suck on, but she never took one regularly as a little baby. Sometimes it is the only thing that calms her down when we have no idea why she is upset. It is crazy. I love it, and don't mind it at all. She LOVES dogs! We are just going to go to the pound and pick up some Chihuahuas to keep this one happy. She thinks pups are hilarious! I sense a Boo obsession will be on our horizon. Loves to be held and nurse, as usual. Loves outdoors and to go for walks. She also has a new key obsession. We must get these from Target very soon! 

Dislikes:  She does not like diaper changes these days! Holy moly she gets mad. And being on her changing table just signals a sob fest.  




  
Postpartum: Nothing new here. I still haven't started working out. But, I did download the couch to 5k app, and I plan to start that this week if the weather permits!  

Milestones: Scarlett is changing every single day, it amazes me! She got her first tooth on February 8th! It is her bottom right. She says "bye bye" and waves. Not all the time, but she does it when we say it over and over.  She has developed quite the personality and does not like me to take things away from her that she isn't supposed to have. She is very sassy! We've ventured into giving her more table foods in bite sized portions which is fun. She now eats what we eat sometimes.    



everyday we play clean up the shoe aisle in her room, ha, she loves shoes already!

  5. You have such a beautiful little girl!!!
    My daughter turned 9 months Feb/24 and I cannot believe how fast these months are flying. I recently finished her nursery and posted photos like last week. It was the little details that was taking my husband forever to do.
    Are you planning her first birthday?

  8. These are SUCH adorable photos. You are going to have the most spectacular book to print out at the end of her first year! :) I remember my little girl going through the hatred of diaper changing at the same age too, it's an odd one!!! Lots of distractions got us through that one!! xx

  10. She is so beautiful!! Have you tried changing her diaper other places other than her changing table? Maybe switching up the location will keep it a little more interesting for her.

    My 6 1/2 month old is still in newborn diapers. His bum is so tiny that the bigger diapers don't form a seal!

  15. Aw love it!!! Marli is so fidgity when I change her diaper so I always have 2-3 toys/things to distract her. I have to be quick like a ninja haha
    Yay for her tooth coming in! Marli did awesome on her bottom two and recently her top 2 came in at the same time and it was terrible :/ the teething tablets helped us a lot.
    Isn't it amazing how much they change and start to pick up on things??? I am constantly talking to her and repeating repeating repeating and I think that's why she has picked up on so many things. Love hearing about her updates :)

  16. I'm glad I don't have the only one that melts down during diaper changes. I have now resorted to changing Elliott in the living room, while Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is on. Seriously, it's the only way he will lay still long enough for me to change him. Beautiful pics! Scarlett is such a doll!

    ps thank you for posting your schedule! we are struggling with G sleeping again - its like when you think you figure it out they change everything! and i think it is because a lot of her nursing sessions have become snacking sessions. hopefully we can figure it out!

    1. Awe love you Denise :) Thank you sweet friend!
      No problem! And, I know, it gets super confusing when they start eating foods, I never knew when to nurse S. But, it gets easier to know when they've gotten a few months of real food under their belt.

  18. Eisley has started to cry when I change her diaper too! Which is a change as she used to loooove it. Babies are so unexplainable :P
