Hey little boy!
Now that you are almost 11 months old, I think it’s time I actually sit down and write your 10 month update! Month 10 was full of so many discoveries for you. You pull up on everything and are cruising the furniture like a pro. When I come into your room every morning, you are standing up and bouncing up and down to greet me. It is my absolute favorite thing to see each as I start my day!
You are growing out of the 6 month clothes you have, so I think we will be transitioning your drawers soon. SIze 2 diapers are pretty snug as well, so I think size 3 are in the very near future. I’m not sure how much you weigh, but if I had to guess, I’d say between 18-19 lbs. You are growing perfectly on the growth chart and are starting to get a few little rolls.
You are eating anything and everything still and have really mastered the pincher grip. You eat all sorts of table foods now, rather than all of the pureed foods we started you out with. You make the funniest noises when you like what you are chewing on – its almost like you are repeatedly saying yummmmm!!!
You are a super fast crawler now and can move across the house in no time if there is something you are going after. You can take (very) assisted steps now, and I see your legs getting stronger and stronger each passing day. You can’t start school until you are walking (per the school’s rules), so we are definitely hoping you will figure it out come July. You will be starting in the same class your big brother did, and we can’t wait to see you thrive around all of the other kiddos.
Your sleep is still superb and you go down at night like clock work. Luckily, your bed time has been stretched until 7pm now, which I love. I get to see you for a solid 30-45 more minutes each day! We play lots of fun games at night and your brother smothers you with hugs and kisses. You still love breastfeeding, which makes me happy. Those 10-15 minutes in the morning and evening are really a special time for me to spend with just you.
Our whole house got a stomach bug this past month – you included. Luckily, you bounced back in no time and we affected the least out of everyone. Even when you were under the weather, you were still the happiest little guy. The extra snuggles you needed we fine by me. It is so rare you cuddle with me any more, so rocking you to bed at night and soaking in that sweet baby smell was like heaven for me.
We have just a couple more months until your big 1 year birthday! We are already start to plan the fun with our close friends and family and can’t wait to spend the day celebrating YOU!
Stay as sweet and kind as you are now, and no one will be able to stop you, sweet boy. I love you with all my heart!
