You were 10 months old yesterday!! I can't believe how quickly you are growing and how much you are learning. I am in awe of you all the time! You started crawling a day after you were 9 months and now you are EVERYWHERE. I have to say "no" to you a lot so you definitely know what it means and you don't like it. You get a pouty face and sometimes you give a fake cry but you stop what you are doing...for a few seconds.
I refuse to put of a million gate or corrals in our house so you wander pretty freely and we just follow you around. The only real baby proofing I did was put outlet covers up. You are getting better and faster on the stairs everyday. You are not yet ready to climb them without someone close by. Sometimes you just quit and sit back and give a fake cry because you are frustrated (sorry bud, you get that from me).
Solid foods continue to be a challenge. Some days you will love pineapple or sweet potatoes or bananas and the next day you push such things right out of your mouth, repulsed by the texture. You like to snack on Mum Mums and puffs.
The sippy cup also continues to be a challenge. You will really only take one small sip a day off the things no matter what I put in them (different juices, water, formula). I also started just leaving one next to you when you are playing but you simply are not interested. Bottles are still your thing.
You absolutely MUST sleep with a blankie, or two. You never liked a pacifier and you are not a thumb sucker but you are pretty attached to your blankie, especially when you are sleepy.
You now have 8 teeth.
You still get up at night for a bottle, usually once but sometimes twice.
You LOVE your dog and cat but they are not as fond of you as you are of them. I have had to stop Lita from swiping you with her claws several times.
You love to watch Curious George and The Cat and the Hat in the morning while we are getting ready for work. You may have inherited that Groth TV watching gene.
You are still in size 3 diapers. You were only in the 10th percentile for weight and 26th for height at your last appointment.
You have had 3 ear infections so far.
You love to laugh, giggle, be tickled and be silly.
You are perfect.
