Chase 11 Months Old – Our Little Book-worm

Chase is 11 months old, which is so hard to believe! She’s got four teeth now and a couple more ready to pop through any day now!

Getting Chase to sit with the chalk board is proving more difficult every month. I plan to stop here at her one year birthday with making them so we are in the home stretch!

OMG I love that smile! And the laugh she makes just makes my heart jump. πŸ™‚

Baby Milestones

She’s such a happy baby all of the time. It’s been fun to take her out to different restaurants and go for walks. She really enjoys her surroundings and pointing at everything. A bonus has been that she has really good table manners. She feeds herself carefully and only starts to “race car” drive her food around when she’s close to finished. She will sign “all done”, which confirms she’s finished her meal. Chase hasn’t been a fan of her sippy cup until recently. We’ve been offering it with water and she’s shown little interest. Until one day she grabbed it and just started chugging away. Now she’s a sippy cup pro. We haven’t yet started putting her formula in it and will be working on that next. Plus we will start introducing whole milk soon too. Lots of big changes to come there!

She’s walking while holding on to the side of things like a table or chair. She won’t take our hands to walk just yet, but she will stand with no hands and look like she wants to take a step and then plops down on her bottom instead. πŸ™‚

She’s become such a book-worm! Chase will pick up a book and crawl to hand it to us and then curl up in our lap to have it read to her. We’ve been buying books like crazy because she can’t get enough. It’s been so fun that story time is something we do now multiple times a day. πŸ™‚

Chase is also loving dancing to music. It’s the sweetest thing to see her sitting rocking to music or standing up and bebopping up and down.

Every month just gets more and more fun with her!

Chase 10 Months Old – Springtime Fun

I’m late posting this, but Chase is 10 months old! She is just growing so fast! She’s getting so tall and is fitting into 12 month clothes already.

Baby Milestones

Milestones this month include: crawling up a storm, pulling herself up, standing no hands for a few seconds, pointing, waving hi/bye, and she has two teeth (one on the top and one on the bottom) and more that are about to pop through!

Baby Nutrition

Chase has been a really good eater. Around 9 months after she would finish her baby food we would introduce some easy finger foods. This month she has shown that she would prefer to feed herself so we start off her meals with finger foods and then follow up with baby food as needed to complete her meal. She is getting a lot more variety in finger foods too. Here are some example meals:

  • whole wheat pasta, steamed broccoli, pasterized goat cheese, steamed diced apple
  • scrambled egg, pancake, steamed diced apple
  • diced banana, toast, scrambled egg
  • diced turkey, mixed veggies
  • grilled cheese, diced avocado
  • diced sweet potato, fiesta corn (with green and red pepper)

She’s also enjoyed: soft pretzels, ham, egg noodles, and hawaiian rolls.

Springtime Fun

Springtime fun has included taking rides with her first trike (our Easter present to Chase).

Chase did not like the Easter bunny, so I provided some interference.
