Michael: 10 Months

This Month:
*You weigh: Around 21 lbs
*You are wearing: 12 month clothes 
*You still eat about every 2 hours. I feed you in the morning, when I put you down for a nap, when you wake up for a nap (x2), before bed, and typically once during the night. I am happy to say that we are still nursing and going strong! I am so thankful that things are so much easier this time around!
*You are in a size 4 diaper.
*You go to bed around 8:30-9:00 and sleep until 5:00-6:00, eat, then sleep until around 9:00. You take 2 naps a day that range from 1.5-2 hours long. You get up in the morning around 9:00, nap at 11:00 and sleep until around 12:30-1:00 and take your second nap around 3:30 and sleep until 5:30ish.
You have mastered cruising around furniture this month and learned to climb the stairs (with supervision of course). I think climbing the stairs is your favorite thing to do. If we leave the gate open you are instantly booking it over there! You have discovered your hands and ealized that you can open and close them and get mezmorized by your new skill. You have also relized that you have a toun gue and love sticking it out like a little lizard! It's so cute!
You are such a busy body and love to watch everyone around you. You are a very distractible nurser and will only nurse if you're in a dark room with white noise. That makes it hard to spend a day away from home! And you definitely don't nap in your stroller or while we are out and about. Sometimes you will fall asleep in the car, but not always. Your two top teeth came through this month, you were fussy for a night or two, but otherwise did pretty well with them. When I hold you, you love to blow raspberries on my shoulder. That's your new party trick. You are definitely a mama's boy. When I walk over to you you will put your arms up to reach for me and it melts my heart! I get paged to pick you up from the nursery during the sermon at church almost every sunday, I do cherish that you always want your mama. I know one day you will develop your independence and my days of snuggling you will be few and far between!
You are still cruising around the furniture and there have been a few times where you will let go and stand for a few seconds, but then you sit down and crawl off to your next destination. You love to get in the cat food and play with the cat door and have actually trapped him in the storage room in the basement a few times becuase you locked his cat door while you were smacking at it.I'm sure Jack doesn't really appreciate that.
I can't believe that your first birthday is right around the corner. You are such a sweet and happy boy. I love watching you grow and learn new things and am cherishing these last few months while you are still a baby. I couldn't imagine our family without you and can't wait to see what the future holds for us! I love you sweet boy!!
