Kensington Grace: Ten Months

I'm posting this late, because... "my life!" That's typically the phrase I use when describing how busy I am. Either way, my bundle of joy is now 10 months old as of April 5 and I cannot fathom it. In 60 days, she'll be a year old. Where does time go?
Weight: Not sure since we don't go back to the doc until she's a year old, but I'm guestimating around 20lbs.

Height: Also not sure since we haven't been to the doc since her 9 month check up.

Hair: Light brownish-redish.

Eyes: If you've read Kensington's updates over the past 10 months, you'd know that her eye color doesn't seem set, but more and more, homegirl seems to have brown eyes. TAKING AFTER MAMA. Do you know how much enjoyment I get out of the fact that she favors me? It's not about how she looks, but it's the fact that if there were ever doubts, it's so obvious that the kid is mine. She comes from my womb. I knew I could love any child that God gave me, regardless of how they looked, but the fact that Kensie Grace favors me is like having my cake and eating it too.

Clothes: 12-18 months.

Diapers: Size 4. Yea buddy.

Sleeping: Kensie Girl sleeps in the room with us and we have no intention of changing that. Please don't give me the side eye, but yes baby girl starts out her night in the Rock N Play (CALL ME CRAZY if you must) and then moves into bed with us once Ross and I go to bed. For the record, I looked up the weight limit on the Rock N Play model that we own and the max is 25 lbs. SO - yes, we are going to use it for every single pound we can get. Oh and you'd be right in assuming that her legs hang off the ends. She doesn't fit in it anymore; that's apparent. But Kensington is super duper comfy in there and she falls asleep SO quickly. It's completely effortless on our parts! Naps and bedtime are so simple and we like that.

Eating: Per her doctor, we're allowed to feed her anything we want (except honey) and we've started introducing tons of new foods. She likes rice a lot! As she should... Mexican food (specifically rice) is one of my favorite foods and I ate it all the time while preggo with her. We've introduced a few finger foods like Cheerios, but we're waiting for her to get used to it. With her one little tooth, it's all nawing instead of chewing. 

Kensie's favorite things: She loves books! When she's in the carseat, I give her a book and she'll literally laugh out loud at the pictures. It makes me so happy! Also, her blankets are her comfort. She grabs her blanket constantly and takes it with her wherever we go.

Mommy's favorite things: I am obsessed with her clapping and waving. It is seriously the cutest thing ever. 

Daddy's favorite things: Tickling Kensie and giving her raspberries! 

Mommy's nicknames for Kensie: Kens, Baby, Sister Friend.

Daddy's nicknames for Kensie: Princess.

New with Kensie: KG stands on her own but still much prefers crawling, so the standing lasts for a few seconds and then she's on the ground again. She waves and claps like a pro (and on demand too)!
