Robin June 10 months

Mohawk baby

Robin is a fabulous, energetic 10 months! She crawls, she signs, she pulls herself to standing. She tells jokes, in her baby way. She is our little wiggles and giggles.

21 lbs - 75%
29" - 75%
46 cm head - 90%

I have a lot of catch up to do with Robin's weekly photos... and apparently I got off one week so I missed her half-in/half-out day. But so it goes.

Robin - 40 weeks and adenoids!

Today Robin is 40 weeks old. This is the "standard" time it takes to grow a baby from one diploid cell to a breathing person. So, it was only fitting that we celebrate by another trip to the hospital.

 Robin has always been a snorty, snoring baby. She snores louder than anyone else in the family, and often will pause in her breathing during sleep only to cry. She does this every 40 minutes to an hour. All night. Nearly every night. Often, I have her sleep on my chest, with me propped in an upright position. Many nights, Brian will take her in the early morning hours in the Ergo so I can get some sleep. I know babies sleep, well, like babies, but we thought this was a bit extreme. A quick trip to the ENT confirmed our suspicions: the kid has enlarged adenoids. Well, really I should say "had" because this morning the nice doctor took them out.  As she was coming out of her sleepy anesthesia, we immediately noticed her little snorty breathing sound now sounds clear.  We're hoping to all get much more sleep.  And Brian is looking forward to resuming his title as "loudest snorer in the house".

Helping Dad kill ants in the crawlspace

Helping Dad with the crawlspace

Lyrics by Erin

Puff the magic dragon
lived by the sea
and frolicked in the octopus
in electric in a sea.
