Pate, you are 10 months old now! Wow, Double digits! ha! You are the cutest boy ever and I could just eat you up every day! I love those sweet lips, and those chunky thighs, and that cute nose, and those beautiful eyelashes, and those few rare moments when you lay your head on my shoulder and love on me....
You are totally 100% into everything all day long. You can find any little thing you're not supposed to have and put it in your mouth. Today:a back to an earring, a piece of a stick from a basket, a tiny rock, and a puple pom-pom. . You stand up and walk around all the furniture and will let go if you are distracted and play with something in your hands. You climb up in the little chairs and STAND UP IN THEM! You have no fear. I feel like Alabama and I say, "No, Pate" about one hundred times a day. She is a great sister and loves you so much and helps me a lot to keep an eye on you.
You love balls and I sit in the floor and we throw it back and forth to each other and you will do it for 15 minutes at a time and never get tired of it! Actually, you love to throw everything down, not just balls, to see what it will do, I think. You went to your first THS football game and had a great time! You loved to dance with the band and clap for the team! You love music and it looks like you are directing a band or something with the arm motions you do when music comes on. ha! Sometimes you'll do those fake coughs back and forth with us. So funny. You hold the phone and I say, "Say hello!" and you will say something and hold it up to your ear but your hand is folded the wrong way. It's just like Alabama did it. Love it.
You have a little separation anxiety beginning I think. You were fussy in the nursery on Sunday but were fine when I was there. Little stinker.
You are very vocal sometimes and other times don't say anything. You say Da-da all day long but still won't say Mama or Bama. You did the "more" sign today.
You go to sleep so good but still wake up during the night to nurse. You take two naps a day of varying lengths.
You are using the pincher grasp to pick up small foods now! Mealtimes are a big mess. You wipe food all over you and your hair....(sigh). I'm not sure about your foods you like right now. You don't want to eat a lot of the baby foods you ate before, but also don't want a lot of the table foods I offer, either. Still love yogurt the most!You also love to eat bananas cut up. You tried spaghetti for the first time this week. You liked it and wanted more but didn't chew it well. You make the funniest faces when you don't like something. It's like a kissy face! ha!
You weigh 21 lbs 12 oz.
Your hair is a hot mess. It's so long and it's in your face all day long!
I am so happy that you're mine and am so thankful for you!
I love you forever, I'll like you for always. As long as I'm living, my baby, you'll be!
