10 Months

This child of mine is now mobile.  It happened literally over the weekend when he was 9.5 months old.  One day he was up on his knees, the next day he crawled just a few paces and then the following day he was full on cruising everywhere.

I think babies are wired to crawl and get into everything they are not supposed to.  Of all the cabinet doors in the kitchen he could get into (the one with all the tupperware would be great for him to play with), Zach chooses to go straight to under the sink…every. single. time.  He also prefers to play with my hair dryer and iron cords whether they are plugged in or not.  I'm going to have to find another solution for that.  He also likes to play with the doggie door.  He hasn't crawled throught it yet, but he could very easily put two hands on it and come crashing down. He's also discovered Pepper's water bowl, as I found him playing in it multiple times today.

This month he also has learned to pull up and stand with ease and will do this with anything within reach.  He also learned to clap.  One night at dinner, he just did it out of nowhere and got a huge kick out of himself.

Zachary will still eat pureed baby food for the most part, but has also really mastered putting small bits of food into his mouth like a champ.  He'll start to get fussy at dinner, but you give him some "real" food and he's good again.

He's a sweet kid and we are starting to see his personality emerge.  He has a great sense of humor, loves to grin and flirt, and can really voice some strong opinions.

Two months to go until you're ONE!  I love watching you grow up and discover new things and venture out on your own, but please don't forget that your Mommy loves to hold you, stroke your hair, and hold your hand, so please remember to turn around and come back to me so I can cuddle you for a little while.

Well..he's up from his nap.  Gotta Go!
