Man Cub: 10 Months

Dearest Little One,

Each day with you is more fun than the last.  We don't think we want one phase to end, but end up enjoying the next phase so much that we don't mind too much that you're growing.  I can't believe you're 10 months old!  You are changing so much, and just when I think you can't get any happier, you do.  God is filling you with so much joy, and we are grateful.  It's hard to imagine that He loves you more than we do, but I know He does.  Two more weeks and then we get to be together for the whole summer.  We're still praying about what God has in store for our little family for next school year, but I know His plan is perfect and that He won't lead us anywhere that isn't best for you.  We love you!!

Between cutting a tooth and a cold, your sleep wasn't the best this month, but it certainly wasn't awful either.  Mostly, you're back to sleeping through the night.  Sometimes you'll wake up for a few minutes to jabber a bit, and then drift right back off to sleep.  It makes me wonder if you're just counting all your friends and making sure they're all still there with you.  You love your monkeys, elephants, and Sophie the Giraffe!  You're taking solid 2 hour naps both morning and afternoon.  I think it's the upside of growing!

Don't mess with a boy and his food!!  You love to eat!  You like dry cereals, gluten free waffles, and fruit for breakfast.  I can consistently get you to eat sauteed zucchini and squash,  avocados, all fruits (and you've had most of them!), and organic turkey for lunch and dinner.  You eat homemade purees and lots of other things too, but it's hit and miss on what you are in the mood for.  Sometimes you'll eat a few bites of grilled Chick-fil-A nuggets, but you are not a big meat fan at all. 

You love to talk!  You can accurately say Daddy, Mommy, Mama (my mom), pup, baby, Aggie, and Bailey.  You call yourself Baba.  You have so much to tell us and babble constantly!  Walking is something you can do, but choose not to do.  Every once and a while, you talk a couple of steps, then decide you're faster when you crawl, and take off on your hands and knees.  All of your fun tricks from last month have just improved in accuracy this month.  

Riding in your carrier, stroller rides, dancing, being in the swimming pool (Hallelujah!), running with your push toys inside and outside, playing ball with Aggie Belle, bath time, climbing the stairs, seeing animals, riding ponies, sucking your first 2 fingers, reading books, cuddling in our bed in the mornings before we start the day, and singing.  

Most meats, if you get too sleepy or hungry, being in your carseat for more than about 20 minutes
