HB at 10 months

At 10 months old, my Lil Man is still a charmer.  He loves to smile and giggle and has become increasingly active.  Here is a list that describes his current list of "accomplishments":
  • He cut six teeth in the past three weeks!  Four teeth on top and two additional ones on bottom.  Combined with a head cold, the past three weeks have been challenging as we have worked through lots of fussiness.
  • He is starting to cruise around on furniture - he loves to "walk" especially if it means he walks behind something as he pushes it on our tile floor.  I keep waiting for him to fall really hard but so far he hasn't, whew.
  • On this same note, his balance is getting better and better.  He stands up for increasing amounts of time without holding onto anything.  Yes, I still hold my breathe each time, counting the seconds as they tick by before he falls on his cute little bottom.
  •  He is getting better all the time at grasping food and chewing it, although a lot of that food ends up on my floor as he figures out what he likes.  This month's food firsts include a dill pickle, black olive (in honor of Uncle Paul) and meatloaf.  He loved all three!
  • Sleeping through the night!!!!!!  He did this fairly consistently until the arrival of a head cold last week, but up until then he hits the hay between 7:00 and 7:30pm and wakes up around 5am for a small bottle then sleeps for another hour and a half or so.  I am still working on getting him to sleep until 6am or later without the small bottle...I am hoping to achieve this soon!
  • Running circles (literally) in his exersaucer.  I place HB in this lifesaver of a device one to two times a day so I can load the dishwasher or have a few minutes during dinner preparation without having my sub-three-foot boy pulling at my pant leg.  He might complain for a few seconds but once he settles in he literally runs - and giggles too!
