Fun things for 10 months:
-M says “La La La” with his tongue out. It’s hilarious! He also says “at” when he sees a cat and “da” when he sees a dog. Could just be babbles, but I think it means something.
-Check out these upper teeth!!
All four upper teeth decided to make an appearance at once, and it has been a bit rough. Fussiness, some night waking, a missed afternoon nap for the first time. I’m ready for these teeth to arrive already.
Also, look what I discovered one day off one of the crib rails. ACK paint! Upper teeth poked through.
-We no longer snuggle in bed in the mornings because somebody just wants to climb off the edge! He’s strong and fast and I miss the days when he would just lie between us and coo.
-He’s also started throwing tantrums if he doesn’t get his way. This one was after I put the vacuum cleaner away. Didn’t want him chewing on the bottom of it :/
-He also knows how to flush a toilet now. What a skill to learn!
-He is quite good at laughing and has a great sense of humor. He’s also great a peek-a-boo and will play with just one eyeball.
-When I say “ready for milk?” he knows what it means. He gets all excited for his favorite snack anytime. We have sort of dropped the ball on baby signing, but I’m trying to remember to do it more.
-He’s getting better at independent play, including reading books on his own. The cutest! I put him in his crib with toys while I shower and he does OK for 15 minutes.
At the same time, though, he’s a mama’s boy and loves to cling and climb on on me.
-Still a great eater. Loves frittata with spinach, shredded cheese and his sippy cup.
-Running errands together has gotten so much easier. He can sit in the carts in stores and is much more predictable. So long as I have an emergency snack on hand, things usually go OK. I’m so glad leaving the house is a bit easier than it used to be.
-We gave him his first haircut this month – a little trim around the ears. He was growing sideburns that would have covered his ears in time!
-Walking doesn’t seem to be too far away:
-The best part of our days? The hugs and kisses! If you say “Give me a kiss!” he makes smacking noises and will plant one on your face and hold it there while giggling. And Karen has taught him how to squeeze out a hug! The best.
