10 months.

At 10 months, Henry is turning into a little mobile man, and getting fast. He has mastered his little belly scooch, and a couple times we've seen him push up on all fours, but I still think he'll walk before crawling. We should really get around to all that baby proofing, right? (Ugh)

He is eating a lot better now - mostly purees, and little Gerber puffs and mum mums. We are planning to start tasting new foods soon, including green veggies and dairy and one of these days when I'm feeling brave - spaghetti.

Hen is still our little serious guy. It takes him a while to warm up to new environments and new people, but once he does, it's all cuddles and laughs. He gives us the biggest smiles and laughs these days. Will bob his head side to side when music is on. 

I suppose the big news of 10 months is that he finally got his first tooth, on the lower middle left. He sprouted another tooth while we were in Costa Rica, but overall he's been doing pretty well with it all. They don't seem to bother him too much, but I'll catch him sometimes running his tongue over it, like, what is that? It's really cute now when I give him a drink of water from my glass and hear the tooth clinking up against my glass. Mini baby tooth. Other milestones - he is clapping and shaking his head "no". Not sure if he understands it means no, but I know he likes to shake that little head back and forth!

He is sleeping through the night, goes down between 7 and 8, and wakes up between 5:30 and 6:30. I still haven't figured out how to get him to sleep later than 5:30 (and sometimes 5, like this morning. ouch.), but I don't think he's willing to wait longer for his breakfast. Henry is nothing if not particular about his milk. (wink)

Some funny little quirks I've noticed this past month - he likes to put his thumb into things and find little holes in our floor and stick his thumb in there. He also likes to pull himself up on things and while he does, he looks at us and laughs, like - can you believe I'm doing this? If you spin quarters on the table while he is eating, he will eat until the bottom of the bowl. It was a big day when we found out about that little distraction! Another funny thing is he is mama's biggest fan lately - he will crawl right under my legs and if I walk somewhere else, he will follow me around and reach up on my legs, like "Pick me up, mom!" It's so funny and sweet.

We love our little guy - chubby knees, eyebrows, and sweet smile, he fills our life right up to the brim.

I am absolutely not kidding when I tell you he melts my heart.

Rolls and rolls! Just like a baby should be!
