Ten Months

Ten Months

Ten Month Collage

What are you up too at Ten Months Wyatt? 

–  You have eaten table food for the past couple of days.  You have enjoyed green beans, blueberries, blackberries, ravioli, and waffles.  You have been really good with the food, and we are excited to try new foods!  You took a sippy cup for the first time this weekend!  You drank all of your formula and were completely satisfied.  I was so proud!  We are going to continue to give you a sippy cup, hopefully we will be off the bottle soon!

–  You are a totally mobile baby.  You crawl all over the house, and get into EVERYTHING.  You pull up on the sofa, chairs, tables, anything you can grab onto!  The only problem with your pulling up is you haven’t quite mastered getting down.  You just hold on and whine until your Daddy or I come get you down!

– You have started to say “Mama” and “Dada”.  You won’t say the words on demand but you have started to say them more and more.  You have also started “blowing kisses”.  You smack your lips and giggle.  It is so sweet to receive your “kisses”, makes Daddy and I feel loved!

– You have a CONTAGIOUS belly laugh.  Daddy LOVES to tickle you and listen to you laugh.  It is such a sweet sound.

–  You have slept from about 8:30-7:00 for the past two weeks!  I have been so proud of you!  I knew that when you were ready to sleep through the night it would happen, and it finally has!  It was well worth the wait – Mommy forgot what it felt like to sleep through the night!

–  You LOVE to “walk” around.  You grab our fingers and take off.  You cruise all over the house, checking to make sure everything is just how it is supposed to be!

–  You have developed a little bit of a schedule.  You typically are up between 7:00-8:00am, go down for a nap between 9:30-10:00am for about 1.5-2.5 hours.  Then you are up and play until about 4:00, and you take another 1.5-2.5 hour nap.  Bedtime is between 8:00-9:00 pm.  You are really flexible with your afternoon nap, which makes it easy to do things in the afternoon!

– You have become quite the “clapper”.  We use clapping as a way to encourage you to do the “right” thing.  For instance, if you start to play with something you shouldn’t have, we take it away and then we clap because you gave it to Mommy or Daddy without crying.  We practice sharing the same way – you bring us a toy and we say “Thank you for sharing your toy with Mommy, Wyatt” and you clap!  It is one of the sweetest things to see you clap!

Wyatt- You are the light of our lives.  You keep everyday fresh/new/exciting.  Your sweet smile, contagious laugh, and adorable claps make our days worthwhile.  I can hardly believe you are already TEN months old!  Only TWO more months and you will be turning ONE year!!  We can’t wait to celebrate your first year of life with our family and friends.  We love you so much and can’t wait to see what you are going to do this month!!

Just for fun – Here are some “out-takes” from our 10 month photo shoot…
