The Schwartz vs 10 Months Old

Oh my goodness Sarah, you are in the double digits.  How did the time go by so fast?

* No stats update, while we do go to the doctor next week it's only for a flu booster.
* You are wearing 6-9 month clothes and size 3 diapers.
* You are still a saint when it comes to the bed time routine.  You eat dinner around 5:00, have a bath around 6:15, and your last bottle by 7:00.  Then we say our family prayer and put you in your crib.  You don't say a peep.  I think this is your way of rewarding me for how much you fight me about naps during the day.
* Some days you decide you don't want a morning nap.  However, you go in your crib from about 9:30 to 10:30 and either sleep or entertain yourself.
* You take an afternoon nap from 1:30 to 3:30.  But the previous statement applies here too.  Sometimes you nap, sometimes you entertain yourself.  Sometimes the phone rings and wakes you up and then you will neither nap nor entertain yourself.  (Consequently, I have started trying to remember to take the phone off the hook during those times.)
*  You can stand up without holding on to anything.  You've done it very briefly about 3 times, but you didn't realize you were doing it.  I'm not quite sure how to practice this with you, so I'll let you figure it out when you're ready.
* You have 2 new teeth on the bottom making 4 on top and 4 on bottom.
* You have eaten cat food.  What can I say, you're very quick and persistent.  And you've dumped over Sophie's water bowl at least a dozen times.
*  You have started throwing tantrums.  They suck.  You scream and wail and at times hold your breath. Your face gets very red and splotchy.  What's worse is you're too young to reason with so while I tell you that this tantrum isn't getting you what you want, it doesn't change your course of action.  Most of the time I'm not quite sure what has set you off.  I'm hoping you grow out of this quickly.
*  You give hugs now.  Not accidental, I'm going to call it a hug, but an honest to goodness wrap your arms around mommy's neck and hold on tight.  While playing from time to time you'll crawl over to me so we can hug.  I love it.
* You've said mom, and momma.  They don't mean anything yet, but I'll take it.


  1. All I can say is, you will be blogging (or whatever is the newest technology) about double digits in years before you know it! It happens SO fast it is mind-boggling!
