10 Months Old!

Clothing size- Grayson can still fit in some 6 month but really wears 9 month if I can find it or 6-12 month. Avery is still good to go in 6 month clothes but can wear the 9 month or 6-12 month.

We are definitely in size 2 diapers but I HAD to get the Santa diapers and the smallest size they came in are 3's (which are WAY to big haha).

I'm only nursing in the morning when they wake up and at night right before they go to bed. They would probably be fine without nursing at this point. I guess it's a mama thing. I'll probably let it go after the holidays. The best part about this month is that their doctor gave us the all clear to feed them pretty much anything in little pieces (excluding allergy foods). This has been amazing! It may be more of a mess but it's SO much easier to place a bunch of little pieces of food on their high chair tray and let them go at it then spoon feeding two babies at one time. I could tell they were pretty much over the puree thing and LOVED feeding themselves. A few firsts this month include, mac n cheese, cheese, deli turkey and ham, chicken, taco meat, spaghetti, and venison (daddy was so excited they loved this),

Eyes are still the same. Grayson's hair is continuing to get longer and longer. I so need to take him for a little snip before he has a mullet. Avery's hair is slowly growing. Can't wait for a little more length so she can have little bows!

The last two months were a little rough in this department with Grayson's teeth, the time change, and maybe a growth spurt. However, I am extremely happy to say they have finally settled back into their groove. They are sleeping a little later in the morning until about 7 or so most morning and they are taking two pretty decent naps. The morning nap seems to be the longer of the two. Rarely do they throw in the evening snooze anymore. We did learn at our last appointment that it was time to stop rocking them to sleep. I was so sad to have to give this up but it was definitely becoming quite a bit of work with two little ones. Our doctor said it would probably take about a week of tough love and they would then be able to self sooth. A few days after we found this out we left for Charlotte and the babies got sick. I wasn't tough enough to start. I waited until we got home. Sure enough these babies shocked me and showed that the rocking was all about me. After about a night or two of hearing them cry they were good to go and didn't make a peep. As much as I miss rocking my little ones bedtime is SO much easier.

Avery and Grayson's very different personalities emerge more and more every day! I can't get over how sweet and cuddly my little man is. However, he is still a feisty little guy with a huge set of lungs. He continues to scream when he's mad or doesn't want to do something and he is constantly babbling, giggling, and laughing. Avery remains my calm, sweet little girl that sits back and takes note of everything going on around her...especially her brother. She doesn't talk quite as loud as her brother but she too babbles, coes, and laughs and it's just the sweetest sound. She has her daddy wrapped around her finger already!

Fun Stuff-
Grayson has a new obsession with grabbing his sister and sucking her head. It's so sweet..sort of. Avery's not such a big fan.

I think Avery is going to be a cleaner just like her mama.
Both babies still have an obsession and true love with being in the Johnny Jump Up. Grayson literally swing from the kitchen to the Christmas tree giggling like crazy.

Grayson loves sitting in things like a big boy such as this car Colson shared with him...
and this ride on toy...

He also gives the sweetest little hugs!

And he's learning how to pull up...UH OH!

Avery is obsessed with swinging.
This month they both really started standing solidly while holding on to things. They love the play table, coffee table, and anything that's just the right height for them to hold on to and play. Grayson became a dare devil and will let go with one arm turn around and then go back.

Our doctor things Avery might skip crawling and go straight to walking. She scoots on her back and our doctor said it's really hard for a baby to completely reverse that and learn to do it on their belly. Grayson shows signs by getting up on all fours but has yet to take the plunge and make a move. He usually just rocks for a moment and then flattens to the floor. It's only a matter of time.

They don't quite fit but I had to get these cute little Santa Diapers...just look at those bums!

Sibling identification and annoyance is in full affect. I'd say they definitely have a true love for each other already...

And here's the traditional monthly sticker shots! It's getting interesting trying to pull off these photos with two active little beans!

Ugh leave me ALONE

Okay, I'll take kisses

WHAT?!?! I'm 10 months old!


All I can say is WOW, we sure are having a ton of fun in the Hatcher household these days!
