WOW oh wow! You are growing up so fast!! It does not help either that you have always looked like a 10 year old boy. You are just getting so old so fast. But I still love it.
You are moving ALL OVER THE PLACE. Really. Your dad and I have started calling you "The Tornado". It is so fitting. You are a super fast crawler and you LOVE exploring and getting into EVERYTHING. If ever we cannot find you in the house 9 times out of 10 you are hanging out by the bath tub. You LOVE taking baths and splashing in the water. I am so happy that you like baths. It's the getting dressed part that you hate and fight me on every. single. time.
You now have 4 teeth. Your top two and bottom two. Your top two teeth have a big gap between them and I think it makes your smile even more cute. If that's even possible.
A few weeks ago you got sick for the first time. I took you to the Dr. and it turned out that you just had a cold that we just had to wait out. You got over it pretty fast, thankfully.
You are still mumbling and saying the same words but now you have also started this awful screech when you want something. You have also started to grind your teeth. Both of those kind of make my ears bleed.
I don't know if I mentioned this before but you have been standing on your own for a little over a month. You are very steady now (especially if you are holding a toy in your hand to distract you) and you have good enough balance to sit down from standing up without falling over. Just before you turned 10 months you took your first steps. I should say step because really it was just one. A few days later you took 4 or 5 steps... to your dads iphone. We are still trying to get you to take more steps but sometimes you forget to use your feet and you just stand there and reached so far forward to us with your hands that you topple over. And you think it is hilarious so you do it over and over and over again.
You have also been rearranging our fourniture. I think I mentioned that... At my parents house (where we now live) they have a chair that rolls and my brothers think it is hilarious to sit on the chair and have you push them. You are so strong. You push them all over the house. And it really is funny.
Oh, and another little thing you like to do is bite me. Only me. My toes, my fingers, my arms... It is so weird. I don't really like it because your little teeth HURT.
You still love being outside and soaking in the sun (you may look like your dad but I see little tid bits of me in there, and that is one of them) we go to the park almost everyday and I push you in the swings and let you play in the sand. You are still not a big fan of grass... It must not taste as good as sand.
You fascinate me and light up my life every day. I am so thankful we have you. Watching you learn, grow, and explore make me excited to wake up every day and play with you. However, by the end of the day I am spent. But it's all worth it. I love my energetic little man.
P.S. I forgot to mention that whenever you hear music you become and little JB and sing and dance. MY life is now complete.
