10 Months Young

Hardest working baby I know…

This little guy has been keeping us on our toes. I haven’t had time to take pics of him so I decided to use this series of pics. Great way to describe where he is right now. Into any any and everything!!! You will notice more mommy and me pics which I am thankful for. Enjoy!

  • Takes 2-3 naps a day. Morning nap is anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour and a half, mid day nap is normally about 30 minutes. Afternoon nap is kind of up in the air….
  • Bedtime is between 6:30-7:00pm. Daycare has been wearing him out!
  • Has two bottom front teeth 
  • Teething so he puts everything possible in his mouth. When he cant put in his mouth he goes to it. Like the floor or a window…Lol
  • Makes all kinds of fun noises to hear his own voice
  • Speaks some words: Mama, and dada so far
  • Enjoys looking in the mirror
  • He whistles and knows to do it on queue…when he wants to.
  • Prefers to play with household items than toys.
  • Loves a nice big sheet of paper. He shakes it to hear the sounds it makes. Occupies him for quite some time.
  • Shakes whatever he can to make music and is always dancing. Loves the sound of morocco type things. 
  • Loves to be given praise….a good hand clap or a yay always puts a big smile on his face.
  • Fascinated with shadows/shadow puppets, rays of light, reflections, etc.
  • Drinks very well from his sippie cup
  • Drinks three 6 ounce bottles a day
  • Eats mainly everything we eat with 2 snacks a day in between
  • Folds hands to say his grace before meals
  • Practicing feeding himself with hands
  • Favorite foods: leafy greens, sweet potatoes squash, fruit, beans, spaghetti, squash,
  • Loves books, especially the ones that make sounds, and that have peekaboo flaps
  • Crawls really fast
  • Tries to stand up and balance without holding onto anything
  • Wears hard bottom shoes 
  • Having a good time using his walker to run over mommy and daddy
  • Waves goodbye
  • Likes throwing and dropping things…anything!
  • Separation anxiety has kicked
  • He has temper tantrums. I can only imagine how hard it is when you can’t talk and say what you want and don’t want led alone what you are allowed to have and can’t have. So when we take something from him he really wants, the swinging, kicking and screaming begins. At this point we just respond firmly and seriously to correct this because he is still a baby and we can understand from his little point of view how frustrating this time is for him, but they must learn unfortunately like we all did.
  • Likes knocking things over…if I stack blocks or his legos, he will literally stop what he is doing to come over and crash my creation then go back to what he was doing.
  • Awesome fine motor skills! Baby turns light switches off and on with pointer finger, he spins wheels, knobs, gears, he opens and closes small things etc. He flips everything over to get a look at whats underneath. Engineer in the making! 
  • Enjoys baths…he enjoys standing up on the side of the tub to watch us run the water  and is fascinated by the bubbles as they rise. He enjoys trying to eat tried to eat the bubbles. He also likes to sit until all the water runs out of his tub. Mamas little prune!
  • Doesn’t like laying down so diaper changes and putting on clothes can be interesting. We generally just give him something to occupy him and all is well.
  • Super wild sleeper! We often look on the monitor to see his feet where his head was…Lol
  • Enjoys playing peak-a-boo
  • Loves going to the stores and sitting in the shopping cart
  • Can entertain himself
  • Thinks the phone is for him when it rings…enjoys talking to people on speaker phone.
  • Favorite TV Channels: Baby First Channel, Nick Jr., Disney Jr., PBS Kids, and Netflix He will watch pretty much anything but loves most things animated of course. We try to ensure he watches something educational. Baby First is an educational channel for babies. That’s still his favorite…he knows all his shows by their theme song. It’s hilarious to watch!
