All About Eden

Eden is about 9 and a half months now! Oops. Another few weeks went by since I started writing this. Eden is 10 months now! She has been the biggest blessing to me and brought so much joy to our family. I realized I have not been the best at documenting her milestones, but I want to record some things about her.

Eden "woke up" when she was just a few days old and never really went back to doing the sleepy all day newborn thing. I'm glad she's generally happy while she's awake. She loves riding in the Ergo and the sling, and she has definitely been a tummy sleeper. She loved her swaddle, but we stopped swaddling her when she was about 6 months old and we moved her into her own room. Eden started sitting up around 5 months (she was never really into the rolling over phase) and I think that age is one of my favorites. It was great being able to set her down and watch her contentedly play with a toy and just observe, and know that she's safe and can't go anywhere! It's a short phase but a great one. She also learned to give kisses on demand around then and that is REALLY my favorite thing. We still get lots of Eden kisses and they are the absolute most slobbery best thing ever. 

We started solids at 6 and a half months, and she eats like a champ. She has loved everything she's tried. Her favorites have been green peas, brown rice pasta, berries, oatmeal,  pumpkin, avocado, and puffed millet. 

She started scooting around at about 7 months, and true crawling at about 8.5 months. It is hilarious watching her explore the house. She just does her own thing, crawling around getting in to stuff. She says "mama" and it melts my heart every time! She also says "dada" when Matt gets home from work and gives him big kisses. She also got her first tooth at 8.5 months, and the second one on the bottom came in right after. A week shy of 9 months she started pulling up on furniture, and now she is attempting to cruise around the furniture, and when she's feeling brave she lets go and tries (unsuccessfully) to stand. She's gotten quite a few bonks on the head from falling over. 

Eden loves finger foods and feeds herself at most meals. It's really messy and she's really happy. She takes three hour long naps a day around 9, 1, and 4, sleeps from about 7pm- 7am and still gets up to nurse once a night (sometimes more..:-/) Wearing size 12 month clothes. Seems to usually be around the middle percentiles for height and weight. After another yucky teething week last week she has 2 new teeth on the top (with what looks like two more on the way).

Learning to wave has been the cutest. She waves hi to herself in the mirror as we walk down the hallway, and she'll wave at anyone around that says hi to her.

Eden loves Mariah. And I really mean that. She gets excited to see Mariah first thing in the morning, and crawls after her trying to keep up with her. She gives her big kisses and wants to share toys with her. I am so grateful Mariah loves her just as much. They are quite a pair.
