10 Months Old

Our littlest man turned 10 months old on Friday! His first year is flying by. Soon we'll be planning his 1st birthday! Watching your babies grow is one of life's greatest joys...even if it is bittersweet and super fast.

This month has been a busy one for Layton! We are officially in mama and daddy work-out and chasing down mode. Baby boy is mobile and into everything and keeping us running. I'm always chasing him or fishing something out of his mouth that shouldn't be there or trying to trap him in a certain room or spot. Things can get pretty wild around here. But he is sweet and lovable and TOTALLY worth it. =) We are soaking up our baby boy and every new adventure he brings!

10 Months Stats & Happenings...
*You weigh around 17 pounds we think and are guessing you're around 27 inches long. Still on the small side but growing fast.
*You still wear a size 3 in diapers but we're thinking we'll move on to 4s once we finish our box of 3s. You're wearing mostly 6-12 and 12 months clothes now.
*You seem to be teething again and might have another tooth on the bottom coming sometime soon. For now, you're cute as can be with just two. =)
*You still have a huge appetite and can't get enough to eat. You cry just about every single time you finish your tubs of baby food. So we introduced table food this month! So far you've tried potatoes, green beans, bread, peas, puffs, and fruit and veggie melts. You're enjoying table food lots so far.
*You still take 4 bottles a day of 5-6 ounces. We're hoping to increase 3 of your bottles so we can drop the mid-morning bottle. That's what we did with both of your big brothers and it seemed to help with dropping bottles altogether. We'll see what you think about that in the next few days. =)
*This month you didn't sleep through the night super consistently. You actually starting waking up once or twice between your bedtime, around 7:30, and 10:00 or 11:00 every night. All you needed was to be rocked... just sometimes for a looong time. You also woke up once during the night a few times a week. I'm thinking coming down RSV and being sick was part of the problem. We're hoping to get back on track this month. The past 2 nights have been a great start!
*You are still taking 2 naps a day with the morning nap being a little on the short side... typically just an hour or a little more. And the afternoon nap being closer to 2 hours. I think I'll take it. =)
*You are army crawling all over the place. And you are super fast! You pick up tiny pieces of whatever you can get your little fingers on and put things straight in your mouth. Dog food, legos, specks of trash. Yuck. You open cabinets and touch the lowest branches on the Christmas tree and chase after your brothers and get into whatever they're building/creating/playing. I am busy and almost never still while you are awake!
*You keep saying da-da-da-da lots. BUT, you also finally said ma-ma this month!!
*You love your big brothers and they are my big helpers with you. They sing to you, entertain you, help keep you away from things you aren't supposed to have, and love kissing and hugging you. I love seeing y'all love each other!
*And something that happened just yesterday (so technically not until after your 10 month birthday, but it's breaking news so I have to share).... You pulled up in your crib! I watched you on the monitor during naptime and couldn't believe it! I was thrilled and excited and proud!! A whole new adventure is coming our way soon. =)
*You are such a blessing to our family and we love watching you grow and celebrating your new milestones with you! Happy Birthday to our precious baby boy!!
