ten months

He is ten months old… hardly a baby anymore. 
Crawling everywhere, pulling up, sitting down, cruising holding on to furniture, walking with his push toy, walking holding onto our fingers, getting into EvErYtHiNg!

He has two top teeth that are absolutely adorable.  He is eating lots of table food, some stage 2 and 3 baby food, and is nursing 5 times a day.  He has a great appetite and will eat almost everything that we let him try. 
He is wearing clothes in all kinds of sizes, and is still long and skinny.  We’re in 12 month onesies and pj’s, shirts ranging from 3 months to 9 months, and 9-12 month pants.  He has been rocking his Puma’s in size 3.  We continue to cloth diaper, but are in size 2’s when we do use the occasional disposable. 
Diaper changes are becoming quite a challenge, as he hates to lie on his back.  As soon as you put him down on the changing table he fusses, and tries to flip over and wriggle away.  I have had to chase down a speedy naked baby crawling away from me numerous times after trying to change him on the floor! 

 He will sit on the floor and play with his toys, until he is distracted by something else he can get into.  He loves music, and will pull up and “shake his booty” when there is music on the tv or radio.  He “sings” along with the radio in the car, and babbles all the time.  I think he forgot how to say mama and dada now that he is mobile, but he is very vocal and makes all kinds of squeals and shrieks and laughter. 
He is sleeping through the night on most nights, going to bed about 9pm and we wake him about 8:30.  He takes two or three naps a day, the first two being about 2 hours and the third around 45 minutes to an hour.
Don't you just love this face!
