Ten Months of Hadley


Double digits! Hadley girl is ten months old.

I know I say this every month (just like every other parent out there...), but time is flying by. I CANNOT believe that we are starting to plan her first birthday party. It's insane. But things have been oh so much fun this month. Dare I say my most favorite month yet?

The biggest - and best - change these past few weeks is her almost constant babbling! I love it. Her most favorite thing to do is point at anything and everything and call it "dada!" with a huge smile on her face (of course). Makes me laugh every time. The crazy thing is that we never even taught her to point. She just picked it up all her own, smart little lady. We did teach her (kind of) how to wave and how to give high fives and I'm working on giving kisses, but so far with that all I get is a big open mouth coming straight for my nose!

Other 'words' include mama and some baba and nana occasionally. She also growls which might be the funniest thing ever.

Girlfriend is still army crawling, I don't think she's ever going to get on her hands and knees and crawl, she'll probably just go straight to walking. Pulling up on EVERYTHING. We had a few rough naps when she realized that she could pull up and stand in her crib, but that only lasted a few days. Everything is a phase. Speaking of crib, she is 100% officially sleeping through the night. A day that felt like it would never come. She goes down about 7pm each night and wakes up promptly at 6:30am each morning. 

She is also 100% teething. She actually chewed the paint right off of her crib railing during a nap last week and I found her chewing on the corner of the coffee table a couple days ago! We've been using lots of these RINGS in the freezer to help with the pain and these are my favorite BIBS to help with all.the.drool.

As for food, she's eating with a vengence now. Favorites by far seem to be peas and Cheerios. She'll eat those by the mouthful. She also goes crazy over these BROCCOLI CAKES that we have for lunch a lot (love them because they only have like 5 real food ingredients) and will really throw back any fruits and veggies we give her. Starting to be less into bottles - I mean I get it once you've had a taste for the good stuff, how can you go back? 

Hadley loves loves loves dogs. Of any sort. (Just like me.) She's finally starting to get into stuffed animals -  the JELLYCAT in these pictures that we got in California on our babymoon is her favorite which makes me so happy.

Other loves include her best skill of all, her ability to completely trash a room in .5 seconds. We joke that she doesn't play with toys, she just flings things around. She l-o-v-e-s to unload bookshelves and any drawers that she can get into. It sort of stresses my neat freak self out out, my house being a complete disaster zone while she's awake, but I swear she's happiest in the middle of a mess, so I'm getting there with it ;) She's starting to play more independently at times which can be nice when I need to do things like pick up the 500 diapers she unloaded onto her bedroom floor or refold the laundry piles that she crawled into.


Happy ten months, little girlfriend! Let's try and make these last two of your first year go super slow and savor every moment. We love love love you.

Other ten month favorites: silicone bibs // remote control // chewing beads // music table // high chair wheel toy // tall and short book (any books really) // baby gates // nail file // Brady's toys ;)

  8. So glad she's sleeping through the night! Teething is the devil but I feel like as Oliver's gotten older he handles it better. We love Dr Praegers food! I love that they're healthy and a sneaky way of getting veggies in their food!

  9. Just wait til she's walking... it's so hard being a neat freak with a toddler! I bet Lexi would like those broccoli cakes, going to have to try them.

  11. She is such a cutie! Can't believe she is so close to the one year mark! Those broccoli cakes sound awesome. I will have to remember those! I am not looking forward to teething. At least here are some fun products out there to help them with it. Does Brady growl? Zoe started growling this month and I am trying to figure out where she is getting it from because she has never heard Mac growl.

  16. LOL at the picture of her dumping the laundry. Good thing she's so cute. So very cute. My mom is still bitter about me teething on my crib, so you have my sympathy about that... #oops. My first words were dada and doggie... so Hads and I? We have bond.

  18. Such a little sweetie! I love all her hair :) I am right there with you on so many of these things lol... when T just discovered a few weeks ago that he could pull up in the crib we fought naps long and hard for a few days! "Everything is a phase" is the perfect reminder every single day.
