Happy 10 months to my sweet-big-snaggle-tooth almost one year old little boy!
A little late posting… but Henry turned 10 months on October 7th! Can you believe it?! 10 months?! Where has the time gone?!
This has been another huge month for us. Henry started standing on his own the day he turned 7 months. Within that month he took a step here and there. Nothing consistent. Then his 8 month birthday rolled around. During that month he took several steps in a row. I think he made it up to 8 steps and then a fall on the ole tush. During his 9 month of life, he was in full stride. This kid is on the go and isn’t stopping.
Life is even faster. There’s not a lot of time for relaxing and we definitely have some baby proofing to catch up on. 🙂 He is in and out of cabinets and drawers. Talking, yapping, babbling. Loves to repeat what you say… “hat” and “hi” are his new words. Loves singing — we listen to a lot of Pandora stations, but his favorite is the Nursery Rhyme station. Loves the ‘Itsy Bitsy Spider’. We read a lot of books, but he’s got a case of his mommy’s ADD, so we don’t finish many of them, except, ‘The Wheels On The Bus’. He still loves bath time, but refuses to sit. Always a challenge in the slippery tub.
He’s a great sleeper. Dinner at 5:30, bath directly after, followed by bedtime at 6:30. He still goes an entire 12 hours. Up between 6:30am and 7am. Takes a 2 hour nap in the morning and then another 2 hour nap (sometimes 3 hour nap) in the afternoon. He’s a pretty good sleeper when he’s not at school. 😉
We went through a 2 week struggle with food, he was a little hesitant on textures, but his little tastebuds sure are expanding. Finger food loves are: carrots, peas, green beans, string cheese, waffles, pancakes, any kind of baby food puff/ rice cake/ etc., berries, bananas, hummus, toast with cream cheese + pumpkin puree. We’re fighting him to love broccoli and sprouts. He still loves water in his sippy cup. We are down to 2 bottles (morning + bedtime), whew… not sure how we’re supposed to wean him of these in 1.5 months!
I quit my bootcamp membership and I’m fulling embracing the “mommy workout”. I’m at that point in (my) mommyhood where these last 6-7lbs should melt off. LOL’s. Seriously, y’all, chasing a baby-on-the-go is NO joke (and it’s supposed to just get harder)!? How!? Chasing him around the house, lifting him, changing his diaper, getting him in and out of the bathtub is the biggest workout of my life. Plus, trying to find the time to feed yourself. Forget it. Ok, I’m begin a bit dramatic… but the struggle is real! 😉 I’m so thankful for my struggle.
Love this little boy so, so much!
