Here's our big boy at ten months!
As delightful as always, Andrew is developing such a sense of humor. He is all the time initiating games of peek-a-boo by ducking behind the coffee table and then popping up to 'surprise' us. Unfortunately, he also thinks it's hilarious when we tell him 'no.' Any attempts at correction result in fits of giggles from him and deliberate attempts to elicit more correction. What's a mother to do?
A third bottom tooth is making its way out at the moment and giving the little guy a lot of grief. Still no top ones in view yet, which I believe makes Andrew's a dental progress a little out of order, but I guess they'll all get here eventually. He's holding strong with the stage 2 foods (about 8 jars a day, plus a bowl of rice ceral and about 2 bottles). I've offered him stage 3 foods, but he hates the lumpiness and spits it right out. Cheerios and yogurt have become big time favorites this month. Lately, Andrew has taken to begging for whatever food we're eating: he'll make his way over as soon as he sees a plate and hold on to our knees, popping his lips, until we break off little bits for him. It's pretty funny. So maybe we'll just skip those stage 3 foods and go straight to table foods.
Andrew has an abiding obsession with aluminum cans. He loves to scratch them and bite them and crinkle them and just generally experience them.
He's also gotten to be pretty fond of his jumbo Lego set and Pat the Bunny.
Here's a crawling picture for old time's sake. Perhaps one of the last...
Yep, just to prove his mama right, Andrew is indeed walking in time for his 10 month update!!! In fact, he took his first steps just after we finished his 10 month pictures! These are among his very first steps. (Sorry I recorded it sideways, but it's worth the neck crane, I promise!)
Aaaaaand life just got kicked up another notch!
