A 9/10 month update.. Better late than never!

I am a little behind aren't I? I completely bypassed the 9 month update, but I am a little early for the 10 month one too. Do 3 days count as early?

I feel like this has been a big month or few weeks for Daisy in terms of her development, I say it a lot but it really is true. It amazes me what they learn to do from one day to another.



This week she has mastered crawling, she is now a little speed demon. She can get anywhere she likes and as fast as she likes! She has been doing a lazy kind of army style crawl for a while, and then a sloth style slow motion crawl for a bit too. I wasn't sure if she was going to bother to crawl properly or not, but hey the one day she wakes up and there you go! She is off! She always tends to surprise me with these little milestones after a really disrupted nights sleep. I wonder if her little mind is ticking away on how she is going to master something, then she gets up and can do it! Baby Einstein!

Other things she has come up with is babbling on and on, saying the odd word like Dada and Mama but mainly just yabbering on in her own little language and world. It is what we usually wake up to in the morning! Very cute.


She has a real fascination for glasses and is often trying to grab them off someone's face, luckily all of her nans and granddad now expect it and have to whip them off before she does! But some poo unsuspecting victim's aren't so lucky!!!

She has learnt to love swimming. She always enjoyed it but now she is really at home in the water, splashing away, kicking her legs and basically trying to get rid of me and become miss independent! I think part of it is because she has become used to it but also the group seems have to got smaller these past few weeks and so its a little quieter and there is more space for her.


She seems to have settled into nursery nicely and made some little buddies. We haven't really had a "bad" day there yet, dare I say that without jinxing it?! We had a few crocodile tears when I dropped her off yesterday but it was in the afternoon and not her usual morning visit. Which may have thrown her a little! It has been nice to get into a little routine to be honest, I have had to become more organised and learn to get things ready every evening for the next day. But I think I have finally cracked it!

Teeth? Nope - no peggies still. And actually no sign of any. I think I can feel some at the front but who knows, I have said this for a while!

She is now just into her 9-12 month wardrobe, which actually I am quite pleased about as she has some gorgeous outfits to wear! I am a bit of sale shopper and so often go a bit mad in the next sale but always buy ahead, so it is a while until she wears them! I love digging them back out and seeing what fits now.

Her eating isn't really very consistent at the moment. Some days all she wants to do is eat and she will eat anything, other days she will eat a yogurt and a banana if she fancies it. She is really up and down. I have learnt not to become stressed or worry about it because she still has her milk in the day so I know she is getting all the nutrients she needs anyway. I think its the textures she struggles with generally though. She will eat my purees no trouble and even with a few lumps in, but if I introduce meat then she really isn't interested! I can distract her and feed her, but essentially I feel like I am force feeding her! Which I don't want to do. I am going to keep persevering with her though of course. Any tips would be great :)

Lots of love,
Hayley & Daisy xxx
