Happy 10 months


You are 10 months old today.
You weigh a little over 20 lbs

Pictures were really difficult this month - you're just too busy

You are still saying da da da da da da,  na na na na, mum mum mum, ba, ba, ba, ro, ro, ro, and no, no, no.  You make several other sounds that I'm not sure how to describe.  We love hearing you jabber. You still  yell out in excitement.

I tried giving you some puffs, but you wouldn't look at me.

We love watching you wave and dance - so...cute!  You love dancing and anytime you hear music you bust out your moves.   You love waving.  You wave really easily and at everyone.  You play patty cake and shake your head back and forth (you're not saying "no", it's more of a dance move).  You make a cute "scrunchy" face.  You point at things and point and wave and say, "No, no, no."  -Apparently I say the word No a lot.

 You are still wearing 6-9 month clothes mostly.
You are still figuring out how to give hugs and kisses. 
You are still eating a lot!  You are still taking 4 bottles per day - approx 18-20 oz.   You are eating cereal in the am and a fruit and vegetable and cottage cheese at lunch, and a fruit and vegetable and cereal in the evening.   I am still preparing everything.   You are eating avocados, sweet potatoes, bananas, carrots, peas, green beans, peaches, apples, pears, spinach, broccoli, pasta, and puffs.  I added spinach, brocolli, and blueberries this past month, but I think you may have had a reaction to blueberries, so I stopped giving it to you and will wait a while longer to try it again.  You are doing much better with the sippy cup.  You still really like water.

I tried again a while later, but you still didn't want anything to do with getting your picture taken

You are still wearing a size 3 diaper, but I have just started putting you in a size 4 at bedtime.  Diaper changes have actually been better lately.  You are starting to listen to the word, "No."
Some of the toys you played with this past month was a lady bug that lights up and talks, scooter type toy, balls, and Elmo.  Still, your favorite thing by far was crawling around and pulling yourself up.  You are even walking around the furniture.  You haven't let go on purpose, yet, but I can tell you are thinking about it.  Sometimes you will hold our hands and walk.
You didn't show any separation anxiety last month.  In fact, you go to people pretty easily.  The nursery attendants say you have a great time during church and they always say how much they loved playing with you.

I tried getting Dad's help, but you wouldn't stand up - such a little stinker

Your eyes look a little more blue and a little less grey.
Your hair is blonde.
You definitely know your name, the word, "No", and know Peyton.
You keep getting more and more fun.

You are sleeping about 11 1/2 hours per night.   You go to sleep pretty easily, thankfully.  You stay awake 2 1/2-4 hours at a time now.  You are back to sleeping through the night.  Naps have been much better lately.  You usually give me an hour nap two times per day.  You have dropped your 3rd nap.
You have two teeth on the bottom - and I can you are close to getting 2 teeth on top.
You are usually a pretty happy baby.  You are quite the ham - you love having everyone's attention and you smile at everyone.   Everyone comments how happy you are and how long your eye lashes  are.

Finally a decent picture

You are definitely more interested in playing these days

You are our sweet, precious gift from God.
We love you!  Happy 10 months
