Elly's Stats & Accomplishments
19 pounds, 5 ounces (home scale- didn't change from last month on the home scale)
10 month recap
Weight: 19 pounds, 5ounces
Length: 28 inches
Attributes:Her hair is getting thicker and longer. It's still quite light and seems to look more light brown. However, in some light it still has a beautiful red tint to it. Her eyes are still bright blue and I am LOVING it!
Milestone: Elly has taken a few steps by herself but then sits down. She is SUPER strong and loves to pick up and lift just about any and everything. She has gotten really good at balancing and standing at the same time. Her favorite these days is to pick up my laptop - yes the laptop and act like a super big girl.
Elly still loves to push her lion push toy and will even push her table (I think that she thinks it's on wheels too). She has gotten pretty good in her walker moving around outside. The other day we were enjoying the beautiful weather and she kept pushing herself in a circle. Silly girl.
Clothes: This one still varies greatly! She ranges from 3 months to 12 months. It really depends on what the outfit is. We have finally started to wear some shoes and have lucked out in finding some that work for her little narrow foot. She will wear a shoe size 2 and we are starting to need a 3, but they have to be shoes that have the Velcro all the way across so we can make them tighter on her foot. Otherwise when she starts walking, they just fall off. We are in #3 diapers and will be for a while, unless she hits a major weight gain anytime soon.
Eating: This hasn't changed a whole lot. She is still not a big eater and would rather eat snacks or our food. We keep trying new "adult" food like green beans, potatoes, french fries, bread, etc but it is really hit or miss and depends on her mood. I think if she thinks she is eating something of mommy and daddy's then she will try it but if you just give it to her, she could care less. I am hoping that she will not always be this picky eater but we shall see.
The weather has been pretty cold, snowy, icy and nasty. Aaron ended up having to walk about 3 miles home when we were hit early with snow that completely shut down the city. I was definitely glad that I work from home as Elly and I were safe in our warm house. Elly didn't get any snow pictures of herself but here are a few of our deck and front yard. Didn't really capture the essence of what was going on outside either of our snow times but I guess it's better than nothing.
We celebrated Valentines Day and Gram Lene sent the cutest shirt and yummy cookies for us to eat! Thank goodness that she sent so many cookies as I had come down with the flu and walking pneumonia so we were able to use a few of the cookies as Valentine's happies for Elly's teachers. I am sure they appreciated me not touching or baking anything.

The weather finally decided to warm up and become much nicer so Aaron and I took Elly to the park for a little bit. She LOVES to swing and even got to slide a little bit. We are looking forward to the weather staying warm and getting to play more often.
Here's to another great month of fun with this little munchkin. Looking forward to the fun to come!
