10 Months Update

Height: abolut 30 inches
Weight: about 19 lbs
Head Circumference: about 18 inches
Movement: Still crawling all over the place. We are working on your walking while only holding one hand. You haven't really gotten the hang of it yet; you take very large steps. Besides crawling you have turned into quite the climber. Stairs are your favorite! You are now crawling up the dog stairs onto our bed & just the other day Dad accidentally forgot to close the gate and the next thing we knew you were at the top of the stairs playing. I had a mild heart attack! You have gone down the stairs backwards a few times, but we are still working on it. You also climbed the washing machine and got stuck half way in and started crying to let me know you had no way to get out. Looks like Mommy needs to watch you a little closer these days! :)
Eating Habits/New Foods: We are mostly into big kids food! The only baby food we do is rice cereal and some puffs, but other than that majority of your food is bite size pieces and what we are eating for lunch or dinner. These are some of the new items you have tried and you absolutely love all of it: Peanut Butter, Peanuts, Hummus, Pretzels, cheez-itz, Sliced Turkey, zuchinni, cucumbers, tomatoes, (sausage, peppers, and onions pureed together), basil penne pasta, beef stroganoff, fish sticks, shrimp, crab, fruit popsicles, & cereal bars.
 You are still drinking 4 bottles a day...3 4 oz bottles and then a 8 oz bottle for bed.
Sleeping Patterns: We start the bedtime routine around 8:30 and are asleep by 9 pm. You sleep till 8 am most days. If I can keep you from taking your morning nap, you usually take a nice long mid-day nap for an hour or two.
Sounds/Words: No new words, but you are imitating everything we do! And I mean everything!! You do a knocking noise with your tongue, laugh when I laugh, cough when I cough, pretty much any sound I make you try to imitate it.
New discoveries/accomplishments:
-You passed the peanut butter test! Well not really a test, but you had no allergic reactions to peanut butter so we are thrilled! You also did fine with shellfish
-You saw snow for the first time, went sledding & made your first snow angel
-You do the doggie sign
-You are starting to do the please sign
-You are loving your new drum & music set!
New Friends I've made: No new friends, or at least that I know of. You did have a good time visiting Uncle Gary & Steph, Paul & Dez, and Megan in Colorado. You did go through a little bit of seperation anxiety for 2-3 weeks, but it wasn't too bad. Just with people you weren't familiar with.
Places you went/Adventures: You went to Breckenridge, Colorado and got to see snow for the first time! We had such a good time bundling you up in your snowsuit and letting you crawl around in the snow. You went sledding with Mom and you also made your first snow angel. No skiing yet, but hopefully next year!
Clothes: You are in 12 month sleepers. These are your current sizes: Gymboree-6-12, Target- 12 months (The shirts are short), Carter-9 , Old Navy/Gap- 6-12
You are in a size 3 diaper.
