Isla's 10 Month Update

By 3/22/2016 , , , , , , , , , ,

Hey everyone! Where has the last month gone? Really! i can't believe we are halfway through march already and its been crazy hectic on my end of things. we have moved into our new house (I kept it quiet in case plans fell through but yeah we are in!). We have been working hard to get everything nice and everyone settled in properly (not easy when builders are still coming in every now and then.)

The great thing about the new property is that we now have carpet yay! not something the normal person would be excited about but Isla has really come in leaps and bounds ever since we moved in.

She is 10 months old now. TEN MONTHS. I cant deal knowing shes not really a baby anymore. Its insane.

She has changed so much both physically and with regards to her abilities and development in the last month. During her 9 month update, I mentioned that she is struggling with crawling and could just do a bit of a belly drag- it was her own clever little way of coping with the fact she had no grip on our wooden floor. She adjusted the way she needed to and worked it out herself.

Now have have our carpets, within 24 hours of moving in she had managed to get up properly on her hands and knees, and stay there, and crawl! 2 weeks later she is crawling at speeds I can barely keep up with- she really keeps me on my toes now!

She has also managed to stand herself up, and sit herself up! she can pull up on pretty much anything (hence lowering the cot at 10pm after an escape attempt...) and she will cruise a little around the sofa. We've had lots of games of ring a ring a rosy to teach her to sit back down on her bottom as I don't much fancy helping her get down from standing every time she gets herself stuck in the middle of the night.

She has grown into a giant big girl baby in front of my eyes. I've had to finally clear out all her 3-6 clothes (at 10 months yeah i know, she has short legs!) because she has shot up and honestly we've actually been struggling to do up 6-9 month vests when dressing her. So she has shot from 3-6 vests to 9-12 in less than 6 weeks.

Isla has 5 teeth now. two more coming. it'll be molars next but they do make her smile look so so grown up! Shes started getting extra cheeky and smiling with her nose all scrunched up as well. Every now and then we get a preview of toddler life, with her throwing a bit of a wobble if I ever do (not often) have to tell her a proper no (e.g. sticking her hands in the hamster cage because honestly for her, he is better than toys or TV.)

Jack said to me a few days ago, that he's finally understanding why I keep saying she isn't really a baby anymore- he see's her more as a clumsy, drunk acting child...

What were your little ones getting up to at 10 months? I'd love to know!
