9 & 10 Month Must Haves

Well, time has gotten away from me and every time I sat down to put together Blaire’s 9 month must-haves, I just couldn’t seem to get it finished up. Once I was finally getting it finished (after Blaire turned 10 months old) I realized that she really has been drawn to the same things the past two months, so I’d just combine them. At this age Blaire is curious about everything! She loves putting things into another thing (a ball/doll/anything into a cup), she still loves chewing on EVERYTHING and she’s learning how to walk and use those legs to push herself when sitting. Below are our must-haves for 9 and 10 months.
9 10 Mo Must Haves

Wooden Puzzle // Stride & Ride Elephant // Stuffed Elmo // Sippy Cup // Elephant Ball Popper

Hape Color and Shape Sorter: Blaire has a little wooden puzzle that she just absolutely loves! She basically just likes to chew on the pieces because they’re colorful and easy to carry around. Hers is a hand-me-down, so it’s not made anymore. This puzzle is very similar.

Stuffed Elmo: Blaire has really loved stuffed animals the past few months. She’s always dragging one around with her and cuddling up to them. This Elmo is the perfect size for both! Plus, she LOVES Elmo on Sesame Street. She likes to take this guy everywhere.

Fisher Price 3-in-1 Bounce, Stride & Ride Elephant: At this age, Blaire is constantly on the go. She’s been crawling for over a month now and spends the majority of her day pulling herself up onto anything she can, and she loves standing on her own. She likes sitting on this elephant, but doesn’t quite get that she can bounce on it yet. But her favorite thing to do is push it! She loves being able to “walk” by herself and she could push this thing around the room all day if we let her!

Rise and Shine Sippy Cup: We have some “fancy” sippy cups that Blaire just doesn’t get the hang of yet. I picked this one up at the mall one day and she loves it! Plus I love it because it’s clearly a baby Starbucks cup.

Poppin Park Elefun Ball Popper: Okay, so Blaire doesn’t quite get how to put the balls into this to get them to pop out, but she LOVES the balls. She carries them around and chases them around the room (so do the cats!). And she knows how to push the button to get it to turn on. She loves the music so much that when it stops, she’ll crawl back over to it and push the button to get it to turn back on. It’s SO cute!

Blaire: 10 Months

Our little girl turned 10 Months Old on Christmas! Only two more months and this little girl will be ONE YEAR OLD?! AHH! Blaire now has three teeth and is just a babbling machine. Her two favorite words are still dada and mama. We also swear she said Elmo when she opened up her Elmo on Christmas Eve. She is the sweetest little girl and smiling is her favorite! She loves to wrinkle up her nose all the time, and it might just be the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!

She loves to do “sooo big” and “patty cake” and she has finally started waving with just one hand (it was two-handed for awhile!) She also has started doing the cutest thing with her fingers. She likes to wiggle them all around at the same time and it looks like she’s trying to tickle you. Blaire slept through the night for the first time just a few weeks ago and is really only waking up once per night. It’s usually between 5AM-6AM and we just bring her into our bed and she falls right back asleep until about 8:30AM. She has been using those three teeth to try out lots of new foods! Cheesy hashbrowns were a huge hit at breakfast with Santa.

It’s so hard to get this girl to sit still these days. She’s always trying to crawl away! Not a day goes by that Jason and I don’t wonder how we got so lucky, or what we’d be doing without this amazing little girl. We love you SO much Blaire Elizabeth.
