June Marie :: 10 Months

It's June and our sweet, little June Bug is 10 months old!

Size 3 diapers
9-12 month clothes

June has slept great this month! She goes down for bed between 7:30/8pm and wakes up for the day around 8am. She's taking 2 1.5 hour naps during the day, typically from 10:30am-12pm and 2:30pm-4pm. She's pretty flexible if she misses her morning nap or we have to cut a nap short, which is very nice! 

June is still on a 4 hour eating schedule. She takes a 4-6oz bottle at 8am, 12pm, 4pm and before bedtime around 7:30pm. She's pretty much over baby food, but she will eat a fruit and veggie squeezie. She LOVES table foods and will pretty much eat whatever we put in front of her. We give her table foods and/or a squeezie at breakfast (after her 8am bottle), lunch (after her 12pm bottle) and dinner (usually around 6/6:30pm).

Activity Time
June is not crawling yet, but getting close. She can scoot backwards and pretty much roll wherever she wants to go. She's spending a lot more time happily on her belly and in the crawling position, so I feel like it will be sooner than later before she's off and officially mobile. She has started pulling up on things (not all the way...but most of the way). She is over the bouncer seat (sigh), but self-plays great and she is typically happy playing with whatever toys are around her. June loves the water (bath time and pool time) and going for walks in the stroller and wagon. I love watching Lucy and June interact more during playtime. I can't wait until they can really entertain each other! 

June popped 2 top teeth this month (the ones that are on both sides of her 2 front teeth...she doesn't have those 2 front teeth yet, so she kind-of looks like a vampire at the moment), making a total of 4 teeth (she has 2 on the bottom as well). Her hair is really starting to come in too...I can clip a small bow in it now without having to wear a headband. She will wave when you say "goodbye" and has really starting "talking and chatting" more with people when they interact with her. A little bit of separation anxiety has officially's not bad (yet), but she definitely notices when Josh or I leave her now.  She gets SO excited when we get home and wants us to pick her up immediately! We are happy to report that she passed her hearing test a couple of weeks ago when we went for her 6 week follow-up appointment from getting ear tubes. We are so thankful for those little tubes!

June is such a happy baby...I really do love this age! She is so easy-going, content, curious, playful and giggly. I'm definitely soaking up the last few months of having a baby before she becomes a fast and furious toddler!

Happy 10 months baby June! We love you to the moon and back little one. What a blessing you are to our family...we love watching you grow and experience the world around you. You are such a JOY!!
