ZJ is 10 months old!


ZJ’s new favorite activity is standing. She crawls quite quickly and pulls up on everything to stand. She occupies herself quite well by getting into everything and pulling everything off of surfaces. She is finally making consonant sounds which started with “ba ba” and now include “ma ma” too.

In addition to breastfeeding on demand ZJ now eats lunch and dinner at the table. She is doing much more eating and a bit less smearing food all over herself. Her pincher grasp has greatly improved and she can pick up quite small pieces of food and bring them to her mouth. She seems to really enjoy eating and likes everything we’ve given her.

Her sleeping is still quite random. Most days she only takes one nap. She usually requires me putting her to sleep at least 3 times between 7 and 10 pm and then wakes up frequently during the night. She usually breastfeeds and falls right back to sleep but occasionally decides she wants to be up. She wakes between 6 and 7 am usually.

She completely stopped sucking her thumb this month.  I find this fascinating since her 3 year old brother  STILL sucks his thumb.

ZJ was sick once this month but seemed to only feel bad for a day with a runny nose and sneezing.
