Today you are 10 months old. I can't believe you will be 1 years old in 2 months. It makes me sad to see you grow so quickly, yet I am excited! You now weigh 16lb 10oz.
This past month you started walking. You took your first steps at 9 months 8 days. Now you are doing great at walking and follow me all over the house. It is nice not having to pick you up to bring you in the next room with me. You are even trying to run, however you fall after only a couple steps. Soon I will be chasing you around everywhere!
Now that you can walk you are having a lot of fun exploring and getting into new things. You love to play with the toilet paper, see the toilet flush (haha), play in the fridge, and 'help' mommy unload the dishwasher. You also love reading and flashcards. The majority of the day you spend pushing around your activity table, chasing your ball or balloon, walking around holding a cup, water bottle or your bunny. You have recently become very attached to your bunny. Your face lights up every time you see it.
Since 9 months you have switched to only 1 nap a day. Poor mommy. However you now usually sleep 13 hours at night from 7:30pm-8:30am. You only wake up once at 6:30am. Woohoo!
You now have 4 teeth and eat all kinds of food. You would much prefer to eat what mommy and daddy are having than baby food. Unfortunately, you have started to get picky about food even though I have tried to very hard to avoid this. Hopefully it doesn't last.
You are so much fun to be around and you have developed quite the little personality. You are very busy and full of mischief. We love it!
