10.19.17 – 10 Months!

19 Oct

Another month has flown by! Our boys are growing and changing so quickly. They are in one of my favorites stages, and it is so fun to watch them learn new things every day.

Dear Greyson,

You have changed SO much in the last month. Your hair is longer, you are taller, and your little big personality is really starting to show. You are so strong! You can climb the stairs, pull up on just about anything, and walk along furniture. You are still predominately on your tippy toes but are starting to stand flat-footed more often. You have learned to clap, wave, sign “more” and “all done,” and even have said your first few words (bye-bye, ma-ma, da-da, Laney “ne-ne”). It’s almost impossible to get you dressed or change your diaper without a wrestling match. You want to be on the move all of the time – preferably standing/walking. You are still crawling inchworm style, but as soon as someone sits down nearby you are climbing up them and hoping they will walk you around holding your hands. You still love your play table turned walker and can even use a real walker with a little assistance. You still love to eat but have developed more particular tastes. You love eggs, zucchini, carrots, bananas, and oranges and get really excited about potatoes, waffles, pizza, and pasta. Your sippy cup of water usually ends up on the floor or used as a toy. You still love any toys that make noise or music, to shake and slap things, and fly through the air. Chasing your sister, pulling the kitchen towels down, and opening cabinets and drawers are new favorite games. I’ve had to make a couple calls to poison control this month to make sure things you got into weren’t going to make you sick. Plus, you bit another mom’s leg at Kindermusik, which was so embarassing! You crawled up to say hi and just sunk your teeth right into her leg. You sure keep us on our toes, but we love you so much!!

xoxo,

Mama

 

Dear Oliver,

My sweet, smiley little guy! This month was a rough one in the sleep department for you. Between some pre-bed puking and teeth, you have been sleeping like a newborn. Luckily, you make up for it in cuteness. You aren’t on the move yet, but you like to spin around on your bottom. You are also starting to get up on hands and knees and can roll around to get where you want to go. You flap your arms excitedly like a little baby bird when you feel like you are getting left behind. You still love to jump like crazy in your jumperoo, explore toys, and try and chomp on anything or anyone around you. Loud noises and new people startle you, and you bend all the way down to hide your face when you are feeling scared or insecure. You are very interested in what’s going on around you, and I love the way you bend over to peek around something when you hear someone or something you are curious about. You went from eating whatever we put in front of you to being a bit more particular this month. Strawberries, raspberries, yogurt, and avocado are your favorites. You also love puffs and crackers and have really taken to your sippy cup of water. You have joined your brother in the rolling around during diaper changes, but you can usually be distracted by a toy (or TV remote). You had your first injury this month rolling off of Laney’s bed and cutting your head open on the register in the floor. A little Dermabond at prompt care closed it up, and it’s almost healed. You love to play peek-a-boo, get tickled, chase your sister, jump, and fly through the air. The ball popper, play phones, and musical instruments are your favorite toys. You bring everyone around you so much joy! We love you so!

xoxo,

Mama
