Sophy at 10 Months!
Sophy Jane Huff is 10 months old today!
I can't believe how fast the time has gone by. I know everyone says it, but for reals, it's like I was hugely pregnant and arranging her closet for the 10th time. Well, I'm still arranging her closet. This kid will need to start multiple costume changes while the cold snap is still here to get all the cold weather options in. Already with the digressing...
This little girl is ready for the world. She's chatting and pulling up on all of the furniture. She crawls and is super speedy. So far she would really like to be in the kitchen with Mommy and has a lot of interest in the pots and pans. This is kicking of the kitchen reorganization this weekend. We're in desperate need of a scrub and sort with a massive rearranging. We'll put some things at her level that she can play with since I want to encourage her kitchen love. I can't wait until she can pull up her step stool and help out with the cooking and baking. If she's like Daddy, she'll have a love of stirring and mixing.
Speaking of cooking and food, she's not a fan of the eating. Or at least actual food, she loves all of her melts, cheerios (Joe O's since we love the Trader Joe's), and all the baby food options that are crunchy but anything else is a big "no, thank you". We've talked to a few friends who also had this issue with their kids and it was a texture thing. She wants crunchy not mushy and with her new bottom teeth, she's on her way to big girl crackers soon!
We've also pretty much got the sleeping down. She prefers an earlier 7pm bedtime which is awesome to get stuff done but sucks since I don't get home until 6 or after and I miss her. Look at her, who wouldn't miss her?! We've had a few regression nights but mostly because there was too much daytime excitement to stick with her regular bottle schedule and she was hungry. Seems reasonable but hard on Daddy since he does the nightly feedings.
All in all, it's been an incredible 10 months and I've loved all of it - except that giant poop in the back woods of Missouri because that was just ick - she's the best baby we could've had and it's such a joy and privilege to be her Mommy. I love you Sophy bear, I can't wait to see what the next 10 months bring!
