Wait…seriously? I’m starting to wonder when I won’t be surprised about how fast time passes and how quickly Chad grows. We only have a few more months until this baby of ours is officially not a baby! Chad continues to amaze us and light up our lives. We are so lucky to have such a sweet, tender, spirit in our home. Being a mom has become a lot harder because I have such an active little guy! He’s always getting into things, trying to walk, hurting himself, and just being a boy. Even though it’s hard, I love it so much!
At 10 Months, Chad:
>> Will give you a hug if he senses you are sad
>> Joined in on Kurt’s 29th Birthday celebration!
>> Gives big, slobbery open-mouth kisses
>> Continues to wave, but has started waving with both hands at the same time
>> Loves to show off his teeth with a smile or a big grimace
>> Has started trying to climb up on things like boxes and toys
>> Walks while being assisted with a walker-toy, by holding both hands, or by placing his hands on the wall
>> Likes being chased around while he crawls
>> Loves rolling around on our bed or large empty spaces of carpet
>> Says, “Mum, mama, dada, baba”
>> Will lick/bite anything and everything
>> Plays peek-a-boo
>> Explores and gets into mischief (like dumping out trashcans, taking things out of drawers, taking everything off the bookshelf, etc.)
>> Developed a love for sugar: fruit snacks, candy, chocolate, and ice cream (to name a few!)
Here’s a few pictures we’ve taken over the last month (apologies in advance for the poor phone camera quality)!
