Natalie | 10 months


I missed a couple months of updates and I'm just gonna pull the third child card for that. So, in an effort to get caught up I'm just going to combine a couple of months and call it good. Sorry Nattie. 

Growth
  • Weight: 19 1/2 lbs. She's dropped down/ leveled out on the growth charts and is short and fat at 39 percentile for height and 59 percentile for weight. 
  • Clothing Size: 6-12 months, luckily she still fits in Everly's hand me downs since they were both summer babies. I was afraid there for a while she was going to out grow all of them. 
  • Diaper Size: size 3 sometimes 4. Basically its whatever is available in the house.

Feeding
  • Nurses about 4-5 times a day. 
  • We started solids at 6 months with pureed foods and she moved right into finger foods ASAP. Mainly because its more convenient for us, and she's really good with them too. Nowadays she's eating lots of whatever we eat. Mostly fruits, veggies, and some meats and grains. 
Firsts/ Development
  • In January Natalie had tubes put in her tiny ears. Which was eh. She ended up with 2 more ear infections after that, so I don't if they really helped or not. 
  • She'd been pretty lazy on the whole crawling or really moving at all. But has finally starting rolling really well and often. She's started to push herself backwards too. And for a third child I'm just appreciating that she has been slow to move because its a whole new ball game once she is moving.

Routine
  • She naps 2 times a day, usually. If we're home in the morning she lays down for a nap, but it doesn't always happen. So sometimes she has to take a cat nap in the car instead. 
  • Bed time is usually sometime around 8 with Noah and Everly. She has slept through the night since probably 2 months (because she is really the best!) but would wake often throughout the night if she had an ear infection (which was often this winter). She usually wakes up around 8 or 9 in the morning. 
Parenting
  • This girl is such a joy. Its seriously written all over her face. She is still really laid back and easy going for the most part. And somedays I'm convinced she is so great she might just trick us into having a forth baby. Ha!
