Ten Months

This month you officially started crawling, though it's a pretty funny crawl. You also started cruising at every opportunity that presents itself and even just circling your mommy when there's nothing else to grab onto!

Your favorite game is playing ball, whether it's chasing it around yourself or passing it back and forth with us. You've mostly figured out how to throw it as well. You still love animal sounds, and having officially met a few real life dogs you like them as well. And you're still a huge fan of being outdoors: on a walk, on the grass, in the pool; you love them all!

Food wise your favorites are yogurt, oatmeal, bread, and of course puffs which you now eat by the handful. You've started consuming significant quantities (3 meals a day) and you're officially an omnivore having tried your first pieces of meat this month. You love water and get so excited to drink it that sometimes you inhale it just a tad too fast!

We've started using the potty for number two and you are much happier this way, even though you always try to stand up and get away. Speaking of getting away, you are moving non-stop, and that means you're not a big fan of sleeping; you're just too busy!

You've been consistently waving hello and goodbye, and have started giving hugs and kisses without being prompted. We love that! Just before turning 10 months, your first tooth finally came in! We are just so excited with every new development and love you so much!


  1. So cute! Sounds like you are starting some EC? We've just started for #2s as well but so far we haven't really caught anything in time yet! Any tips? I'd love to hear what is working for you.

  2. I just started noticing that a short time after either breakfast or lunch, Baby Boy would stop playing and sit, sometimes whimpering. So then I started quickly rushing to the potty and encouraging him to go there. I would say I catch maybe 70% of the times, but since he's obviously not talking I just need to be closely paying attention. I will try to post about it once I have a few more weeks of experience and maybe some more insight. Hope that helps!
