10 months!

Time seems a lot faster as Mira gets older. I remember doing Mira's one month and two month sticky belly photos and they seemed so far apart. Now her monthly birthdays creep up on me and I sometimes don't realize it's her monthly birthday until the actual day, in the middle of the day at that.

Some of our favorite things that Mira does:
- Carries objects in her mouth and crawls around. It honestly reminds me of a dog, but so so cute.
- She hugs us. A lot. Especially when we go and get her from her crib after nap time.
- She gets goofy. She will just randomly get hyper and roll around and fall on top of me.

Mira's current favorite things:
- Playing in her self-proclaimed "activity center" AKA my jewelry chest and night stand area. She likes to take out everything out of the chest and then take out all the drawers, then when she's finished with that part she'll play with all the cords, then she reaches for whatever is on the nightstand. Usually we keep our bedroom door shut for this reason.
- Taking things out of containers. I wonder when she will start putting them back in?
- Biting. Not so cool... She's bit me several times while nursing (it's getting to be more frequently now, like once a day) as well as on random places on my body. It HURTS.
- Falling into people. She likes to take a few steps and then just fall onto someone. She does this when she's having her goofy moments.
- When someone is laying on the ground, according to Mira, it's fair game to attack that person. She will try to climb us like a jungle gym, slap us, and once again, fall all over us. She will grab and pull my hair in this occasion.
- When we pick her up and run with her. The smile on her face and that little giggle she does is equivalent to being on a blissful tropical island. It just takes me to my happy place.
- Playing in the fridge. The second we open that door, if she is within a 5 foot radius, she books it over there. She just likes to stand inside and attempt to take everything out. She did help me out today, though, she found an old bag of bacon that needed to be thrown out. Good job Mira!
- Helping me "unload" the dishwasher. I have to immediately take out all the dangerous stuff, like knives and forks, but after that I let her have at it. Good thing our floor is clean!

Height/Weight: TBD at her appointment on Friday (which Adam is taking her to for the first time by himself! Exciting!) She's around 17 pounds right now.
Feeding: Breastfed throughout the day, between 3-4 ounces each time I'm guessing, then she's getting breakfast, lunch, and dinner eating solids. She loves breakfast because it's always a fruit, then lunchtime I usually give her a fruit mixed with a vegetable and she'll only eat about half, and then dinner I do the same as lunch but sometimes with a meat. Dinner is when I try new foods with her, so it's always reallllly messy because she ends up smearing the food everywhere. I bit the bullet and splurged on the Ella's kitchen, Plum organics, and Earthland's Best premade baby food pouches. The combinations looked so fun, because they use things like quinoa, kale, chickpeas, etc.

Mira's favorite foods: pieces of bread, pancakes (no syrup), yogurt and yogurt chips (finally!), fruit, oatmeal mixed with fruit, and snacks such as corn puffs, apple + ginger biscuit cookies, waffle wheels, etc. We've really had a lot of fun with the snacks in the baby/toddler food area of the grocery store.

I've also started giving Mira a bottle of formula (about 4-5 oz) before bedtime. I started doing this mainly because my milk supply is at its lowest this time of night, and it's an added bonus that it helps her sleep through the night longer. She was also in the 20th percentile for weight at her last doctor appointment, and I think just adding formula at night like this has helped her gain a lot of weight. I'm interested in what percentile she'll be in at her next appointment!
Clothes size: 9 months, still some six months, 6-9 months, and getting into 12 months! Crazy!
Diaper size: As of today, we just started her in size 3!
Development: Has 4 teeth! She drools like crazy now. And we have a walker! Took her first steps on Christmas Eve Eve. So cute to see her walk. She really thinks she's talking now, still no official words yet, though! She's always been so advanced with all her motor skills and overall physicality, the only thing I can think of that she's not advanced in is eating. She just seems so picky, but we just keep trying.

I'm in the process of booking Mira's ONE YEAR photos! So weird. It's exciting, though. She is at SUCH a fun age, we laugh so much at her, she has the best personality. I just can't get over how cute she is! We probably say that way too much for her own good ;)

Closing off with Mira walking with her walker (which I am obsessed with, but sorry everyone who got her gifts but it's her favorite christmas present)
