The Busy Giffs: 10 Months Old

March 9, 2015

10 Months Old



Growth:

This kid doesn't stop! 19 lbs 3 oz and 29" at his last appointment! We basdically jumped from 6 month clothes straight to 12 month! Some 9 month onesies are already tight on him and he wore 12 month carter's pjs to sleep last night! He's just growing like crazy still!

Looks:

His red hair is basically a hair piece at this point. He is constantly rocking a comb over or angel wings poking out from behind his ears.  I can literally hold like 2 inches of hair in my hands on the base of his neck!
I'm desperately trying to hold out on his first haircut until we go to Disney but I'm not sure I can wait another 3 months!


Firsts and Milestones:

No real "firsts" this month. Whomp. 
He's still walking supported, has 4 teeth now, and dances up a storm, but nothing new.

Sleep:

Some nights are awesome, and some nights are not.
He likes to fall asleep around 7:30 at night and is always wide awake by 6:15 am, whether or not there are middle of the night wake ups.
He only sleeps on his side or belly and will still roll himself if you try and put him any other way.

Food:

Everything.
Seriously, just about everything.
We are still nursing but I stopped pumping when I got back from Las Vegas so we've been doing bottles of half frozen milk and half formula while I'm at work.  Hopefully we can stretch the frozen milk out until we transition entirely.
Otherwise, he LOVES scrambled eggs, any Gerber baby finger foods, french fries, vegetables like corn, peas, and green beans, and all kinds of meat including chicken, hamburger, and turkey! 
I'm always amazed at how much he can eat!
We made some home made deconstructed chicken pot pie and he polished off 3 (baby sized)plates!


Language:

He's making lots of consonant sounds like Bah, Dah, Mmmm, and Wah.
"Mom is the only read word we can hear but he's getting there.

His favorites:

Any electronics, especially phones and remotes. And he's not silly enough to use fake ones-- only mom and dad's will do!
Music and dancing!
The little guy shakes it! Both back and forth and up and down, I just laugh so much when he dances!
He also really loves the animals lately giving big open mouth kisses on their backs!

My favorites:

The dancing has got to be my favorite this month.
He gets so into it and will just yell and shake around when any music plays, including just me singing!
He gives kisses if you ask for them, right on your mouth... and it's adorable.
Also, the way he yawns and snuggles on to my shoulder when he's tired.


I can't believe we're getting so close to his first birthday already!!
