I feel like I just posted A’s nine month information! How time flies. I know this is a bit late, but as I stated in my previous post I’ve been a bit sidetracked this week! The ten month rocket picture will come soon! Here is what is going on in the world of A at ten months:
A is 22.5 lbs, and close to 30 inches long.
A is in size 4 diapers during the day and size 5 diapers at night, and hopefully will stay there until I get through all the boxes I bought during the tax free weekend!
A is wearing various sizes in clothes he is already wearing 18 months in brands like Carters. He is tall so his pajama pants are 18 months for the length.
A is saying nah-nah for no, and i da, for i’m done (different than dada, which is dadada), uh-oh, and ba for bottle, or ba for ball (there’s a slight difference in the accent on those, haha), and mum (he calls me mum, or “a mum, mum”). He also has the k, h, and g sounds down pretty well. The thing I love most about his talking is he whispers to some of his toys and then gradually gets louder. When my husband comes home from work he’ll whisper “dadada” and then get louder and louder.
A is starting to wean off some of his bottles. We are down to three, 6 oz lunch, 8 oz dinner, and 8 oz nighttime bottle.
A is eating more table foods everyday. Last night he had his first Popsicle (lime flavored) and he loved it! He also loves toast with a little butter, cheerios, yogurt, diced pears, and diced banana. He is not a fan of table peas, macaroni and cheese (who knew?), or diced carrots. We are still working on those.
A eats about four containers of baby food a day, and his favorite meat is turkey apple cranberry.
A is crawling super fast now! He can get from our kitchen to our bedroom in a short span of time and he is beginning to stand one leg up when he crawls so he is half-walking at times.
A is pulling up on everything he can find.
A has taken a new found interest in his baby cousin and tries to offer him things like his sippy cup, and he tries to crawl over to give him a pat.
A loves giving slobbery kisses and big hugs. He is still a cuddle bug and usually sits in my lap in the mornings for at least 15 minutes while we both wake up.
A loves his Little People toys and stuffed animals, he loves to chew on them and talk to them. He will hold one of his rabbits (he has three) by the ears and talks to them excessively. I always wonder what he is telling them!
Aidan loves taking baths and now tries to get in the tub when we are getting the water ready.
A constantly babbles to anything and everything (and anyone and everyone) at home, but he is selective about who he smiles and talks to when we are out.
A is extremely curious. He loves to turn his toys over and look at how they have been put together. He also loves cameras and my laptop and likes to touch the keys on my laptop one finger at time.
A stands on his tippy toes when he is holding on to things.
Best memory of the month: A is scared of the door stoppers behind the door(the ones that are attached to the wall). He doesn’t like the loud sound they make when he hits them. A will crawl over to the door stoppers start to touch them and then shake his finger at them saying nah-nah (no-no). Shame on those noisy door stoppers!
