I’m so excited you’re 10 months old! I love watching you get older and discover so many new things. You’ve continued your sick streak and are, yet again, sick (as we speak). I sense an ear infection, but we’ll know today if we go to the doctor. This is actually your second time to get sick this month. The first time (a couple of weeks ago), we actually took you to the emergency room at 4:30 in the morning. You were inconsolable for SEVERAL hours and we finally seceded at 4:30am. And the verdict was…a cold with a sore throat. They prescribed some antibiotics and on we went. The next day? You were completely normal…a little tired, but not acting sick. I have never been to the ER with you or Beckham before (except when Beckham got a concussion and threw up), so that’s how bad your crying was. I thought there was something really wrong with you. I hope this all ends soon and you are getting all the sicknesses out of you early.
You are such a happy baby, even when you’re “sick.” This month you have become much more active, crawling around, pulling yourself up on things, and walking assisted (although you don’t seem interested in using your feet to get places vs. crawling). You’ve started to throw mini tantrums if Beckham takes something away or you don’t get something you want right away. It’s different since you’ve been such a laid back baby after 6 months.
My favorite thing: You have been cuddling me a lot this month at random times. I’ll be holding you in a store or in the house (cause you always want to be held) and you’ll just rest your head on my chest or shoulder. I also could listen to you laugh all day.
Daily Activities: Finding any piece of dirt or bug on the ground and eating it! I probably have the cleanest floors and you still manage to find it all. You’re starting to really enjoy the toys the way they’re supposed to be used (vs. putting them all in your mouth).
Eating: You started having a little bit of formula this month. You drink 1/2 bottle – 1 bottle a day. You stopped wanting pureed foods and want to pick up food to eat. I’m not sure if you’re picky or just not sure about it, but you don’t eat a lot of the food. Every now and then you’ll scarf all of what we give you, but lately you’ve been picky with it. You love bread and pasta (hmmm I wonder where who you take after)…or anything that is on my plate.
Sleeping: You still sleep about 11-12 hours at night with two naps. Your naps are getting shorter and you’re able to stay up longer in the morning. Almost tempting me to cut the first nap so you’ll sleep really long in the afternoon, but you still need that rest in the morning. You’re very easy to put down!
