It’s officially the holidays! We started off the month of November with many sicknesses! Addison had a stomach bug which came and went two times over the course of 2 weeks with a cough mixed in. Hailey had multiple colds and several ear infections. Justin & I both had minimal cough & colds! It sure was interesting when both girls were sick. Addison wants to snuggle with me all the time and Hailey gets jealous and she too wants me. It makes for very long days/ nights! I’m hoping our sick days are far behind us!
Addison is trucking along at school and loves how she can read. She is starting to write sentences as well. It is always amusing to see how she writes things and how it translates! Hailey seems to be learning new tricks left & right as well. She has 2 bottom teeth (which Addy found one day) and just started pulling up on things. She has the general idea on how to blow kisses, waves, claps, throws the ball & shouts. She also has a temper and gets ticked if she doesn’t get her way pretty quickly!
We spent Thanksgiving at my parents where Gannon & Becky joined us as well. The following day Amanda & Emy came into town for a few days so we got to hang with them! Addison was a great helper with Emy, but she was exhausted by the end of the day!
Hailey is 10 months old …double digits seems so exciting!
Sleeping – I can’t wait to type about how great Hailey has been doing in the sleep department…however, this isn’t the month. She has been a terror as we transition her to the crib. Some nights go smoothly, other nights, not so much! We are kind of doing half & half currently. Half the night in her crib, the other half in the rock n’ play. My mom thinks I should just burn that damn chair! She might be on to something!
Eating – she definitely enjoys feeding herself. I keep branching out very slowly and trying new things with her. She did try turkey on thanksgiving and seemed to enjoy it! She also had a tiny bit of whipped cream off my pumpkin pie, which she really liked.
Clothing – she’s basically in all 12 month clothes. She wears some 18 month pj’s because they are slightly roomier for her. Her 12 month tops are a little long on her arms, but perfect on her torso.
Stats – I have no idea about height or head, but she’s roughly 21 lbs currently. I still lug her car seat around and am thinking that must come to an end soon because she is HEAVY!
Loves – Hailey loves her independence. She crawls around at warp speed and really likes how she can pull up on the ottoman. When she is in the crawling position she brings her feet to the ground and stands in a “V” formation. She looks like a bear, but I think she is trying to stand on her own.
Hates – she hates going down for naps or going in her crib even slightly awake. She is also starting to become a real joy when we have to change her diaper. She doesn’t want to lie flat on her back, she rather be trying to roll over and get up.
