10 Months

Dear Mackenzie,

We’ve hit double digits!  How did this happen!?

At your doctor’s appointment you weighed 18lbs 9oz and were 28.5in long. Still in the 50th percentile for weight but moved up to 75th percentile for height. You did not handle your vaccines well and had a fever for a full day after, this was a first poor thing.


I feel like sleep will never be the same for mommy and daddy! You go down around 8pm, but still wake often whenever you are in your crib. You are pretty consistent about waking around 2am for a bottle but go back to sleep quickly. You start to stir around 5:30am and are up for the day at 5:45am. This makes getting ready for the day a challenge for mommy, and the weekends no fun. I keep telling myself this has to be temporary! One day you’ll be a teenager who won’t get out of bed.


You are slowly exerting your independence, but still love to have mommy or daddy hanging out with you while you play with your toys. You are also a little bit of a stinker, swatting at anyone if they get too in your face. You like your space and aren’t afraid to show anyone!


You are getting harder to photograph since you are always on the move.  You are a professional crawler and have even started testing your boundaries by standing up all by yourself for the first time!  I know walking is right around the corner, so I’m trying to treasure these baby moments.


You no longer want to play with baby toys.  You love going after anything you aren’t supposed to have.  Your favorite game right now, tug a war with Chloe.  Poor Chloe always gives up since we taught her to let you have her toys.  You also are learning how to share your toys with Lexi, Aunty Sarah’s other baby.


Love you sweet girl!
