You are 10 months old!
This month as each has just flown by. Summer is such a fun and busy time and I am enjoying it so much with you and your sister.
A few things about you this month:
You are officially a crawler! (stay tuned for a cute video) Right at 9 1/2 months you must have just decided it was time, and off you went! You army crawled for about a day and then you figured out your own kind of seated, one leg dragging crawl. I remember your sister doing the exact same type of crawl. It is so cute. You alternate now between a regular crawl and your one-leg-drag crawl. It is faster for you to get to a seated position from your crawl and so, depending on how far you have to go to get what you want that determines what type of crawl you do.
And, MAN am I running around like a crazy person now.
Mom and I really think God was protecting us for a while from being crazy chasing you and Kinley around. We have to be SO, SO careful with where you are and what is on the floor. You can get anywhere and pull up on anything now.
We went to the park the other day and you loved climbing through the tunnels and pulling up on the inside.
You LOVE to chat, chat, chat.
I didn't think there would be anyone that would talk more than Kinley but, you are giving her a run for her money. You mimic sounds and words already. It is crazy.
You didn't want to crawl until you could take off and do it perfectly and Kinley did not mimic or talk until she could speak complete sentences.
You can already say ball, mama, dada, ty ty, and your favorite is "Woah!" You say it all the time. You love to point at something and say "Woah" like you are in that picture above.
I mean, this is probably overkill..but, you are literally never still.
I was trying so hard to get some monthly pics of you sitting in your usual couch position...but, every time I sat you for a second before I could grab my camera you were already turned around and standing up.
So, every picture looks like this.
We had to wait for Dad to get home to help me distract you and snap some of you as quick as we could to get a decent one.
You are SUCH a boy and are always a mess. I pretty much need to wipe you head to toe or bathe you after every meal. You are eating about half baby food and half table food so every meal is a mess. You still eat any and everything I put in front of you. There has yet to be a meal in your life that you have quit eating on your own. We have to stop you every time. But, I just love all sitting down for a meal as a family and eating together. You are also SUCH a boy and always have some kind of injury. Even in these pictures, you have a scratch on your forehead and a bruise on the side of your head from just being crazy.
You are still as sugary sweet as can be.
Your smile is infectious and you lock eyes with everyone you meet and they just love it.
I get comments all the time on you and Kinley's big blue eyes.
Now that you can follow her everywhere, you LOVE to just join Kinley in playing with whatever she is. We just have to make sure there is nothing too small that you might swallow. But, I love walking in the room and seeing you guys play together and I know Dad loves when he comes home from work and Kinley runs and you crawl to him to get in his arms. You are a constant challenge and a constant source of joy for us Ty.
We pray that you continue to take on life at your own pace and in your own time.
We promise we will try to keep up when we can and be patient when we should.
God has given us such a blessing in you and Kinley and we will never take your health and growth and development for granted. We will continue to pray for you guys to love deeply and grow more and more like Christ each day. You are a treasure and a delight and I love continuing to watch you grow.
I love you, Angel.
