Ten Months Old
My Appearance: I am not sure exactly what my weight and height are this month because we are not at home to check but I think I weigh about the same as last month. I think I have grown a little in the last month because I can reach a lot more things this month. My hair is getting longer this month and Mommy says it is time for another haircut. She is also very happy because I still have a few curls in my hair. I now have 6 teeth. One came in right after my 9 month birthday and another came in just a few days ago. Now when I smile you can see my mouth full of teeth with 4 on top and 2 on bottom. I am still in size 3 diapers and 12 month clothes. This winter weather is not good for my skin and I have a few patches of Eczema on my arms and legs so I get lathered up with lotion everyday.
Milestones: There were not really a lot of firsts this month. I have been practicing standing by myself and now I can do that whenever I want. I love this because now I can use both of my hands to examine whatever I come across. I have also learned that I can stand up by myself and don’t need to have something to pull up on. My balance is getting so good that on Thanksgiving I started trying to take a step. I could just lift my foot of the ground but I am not sure what to do next so I just fall down and crawl where I want to go. Mommy and Daddy did get very excited though.
Daily Routine: My routine was much of the same until about a week ago. Mommy and Daddy had the car packed up and even Kiara was in there and we drove all night to someone’s house. We have been here for about a week and I have been having a blast playing with all of the new things even if I am not supposed to, like the dogs water bowl and power cords. There is also a new puppy at this house that is really fun to play with but she plays with Kiara more then me. I still take my naps and eat whatever I can pick up but I am just in a different place.
Special Events: This month Mommy and Daddy have taken me out to eat a few times. It has been so fun to play with different things at restaurants and I get to eat some really good food. I also got to dress up for Halloween, this year I was Tigger. It was fun to hand out candy to all the kids that came over. The next weekend we all took a trip to Cincinnati so Daddy could go watch the Broncos play and while we were there we went to the aquarium. I loved to see all the fish especially the sharks. Later that week I fell and bit my lip and it was pretty bloody but Daddy took real good care of me. I was playing with the puppy’s this week and one of them hit me in the face. The next morning I woke up with a black eye. It wasn’t too bad though and was gone after about 5 days. I just had my first Thanksgiving dinner. I tried all of the good food and I think this is a pretty awesome holiday. Another thing we did this month was take family pictures. Mommy was so excited about this so I showed off my smile for her and she said they turned out great!
