10 Months Old

You know…it’s almost a relief that at this time next year I won’t be saying “1 year 10 months”…

Except if you know me I probably actually will :)

It’s a lot of pressure having a monthly birthday, people!

So here we are. Double Digits. Almost to the top of the hill.

10.months.old.

Have we mastered sitting still and looking at the camera?

Of course not!
Jake,

This last month FLEW by. I’m not quite sure what happened but yesterday you were 9 months old and now you’re already 10 months…

-You got to move to your big boy carseat and (maybe after lots of prayers by everyone) actually do ok (“ok” is the keyword) while we’re riding around! I haven’t tested anything longer than 30 minutes but you’ve learned to look out the window and watch the trees and…buildings?

-You love to feed yourself. You’re a big fan of grapes, kiwi, plums, cheese, crackers, cheerios, blueberries, green beans, and more crackers. You’ve also had lots of table food – even some taco meat the other night! YUM

-You wear size 3 diapers and 6-9 month clothes

-You’re around 17.5 lbs.

-A couple weeks ago you stood on your own several different times! Your mama was shocked. But since then you’ve gotten sick and mastered the art of being pathetic and have yet to do it again. That’s fine with me :)

-Have I ever mentioned how much you love your doggies? You love to splash in their water bowl (before I catch you) and try to chase them around. Unfortunately for you, they’re still a little quicker.

-You are starting to give hugs. You crawl up and just put your arms around me and hang on for dear life. Maybe it’s not technically a hug but I love it anyway!

-Sleep from 7pm – 7am and still take two 2 hour naps. Sometimes longer, sometimes shorter.

-I thought you didn’t understand what shaking your head “no” meant but I really think you know now. You shake your head “no” when you’re done eating and when I put you down after holding you – ha!

How dare you try and pose me for a picture??

-Love to smile and giggle at us. Daddy is the funniest person to you.

Baby boy, I can’t believe we won’t be able to call you a “baby” for much longer. We are so excited to see what’s in store and can’t wait for you to talk, walk, and interact with us more!

(That rhyme was not intentional…!)
