oliver at 10 months

by Ally- Life as I know it, 5:00 AM

10 months has been so much fun! Exhausting, but fun! He's crawling everywhere, pulling up on everything, opening every cabinet and drawer, climbing the stairs. We're definitely taking baby proofing serious now!

He's still in most of his 9 month and 6-12 month clothes. I'm trying to get as much wear out of them as I can so I haven't even put him in a 12 mth yet. Size 4 diapers.

Drinking formula 3 times a day, 8 oz each. He eats meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a snack at 3 pm. I started feeding more finger foods and it didn't take him long to get his pincer grasp down. I try to do a finger food and a puree with each meal. 

He wakes up anytime between 6:30- 7am, we've had a few 7:30 am days which were wonderful! Gets an 8 oz bottle at 7 am and breakfast at 8 am. His wake time has stretched some so instead of putting him down for his first nap 2 hours after he woke up, he does better if he goes down 2.5 hours. 8 oz bottle at 11 am then lunch at 12 pm. Second nap is 3.5 hours after he woke from his first nap. He gets a snack at 3 pm. Dinner at 5:30 pm, 8 oz bottle at 6:30 pm, then bed at 7 pm. 

First nap is 1.5 hours, second nap is 1-1.5 hours. Sleeps 11-12 hours at night.

Balls, playing tug of war with Pixie, really any toy that belongs to Pixie he wants, sitting on Daddy's shoulders, the pool, going on walks in the stroller, sitting in the shopping cart at stores.

Getting his diaper changed, when I leave him alone in his playpen, eventually he forgets about me but he always cries at first!

  4. Sorry I am new to this commenting thing and I somehow deleted my first comment. I love reading your posts about Oliver because my little girl Libby was born a day after he was -10/10. I am curious how you transitioned him to 3 bottles a day. We are trying to introduce more solids and give 3 meals a day but it's such a challenge between her hating to be spoon fed anymore and throwing small bits of food down to our dog we can't seem to get her to eat anything other than puffs! Your little guy is so adorable! It's hard to believe we are planning first birthday parties now.

    1. Hey Lauren! So cool your Libby was born a day after Oliver! So I got him to go down to three bottles by increasing each of the three bottles to 8 oz so he gets 24 oz a day. My dr made it seem like that's how much he's supposed to at this age since they're eating food too. In place of his 3 pm bottle I started giving him a snack and some water in a sippy cup instead. He usually gets some raspberries and a cheese stick. I was really nervous at first with him going from drinking 32 oz of formula to 24 oz a day but it hasn't phased him. When Oliver starts to drop his finger foods or try to feed the dog, I just put them in his mouth myself. And I tell him, I do not prepare all this food for you to give it to our dog! haha I know I can't believe his first birthday is so soon! I ordered his invitations this week, craziness! Hope this info helps! Email me if you have any other questions allysonaharding@gmail.com
