10 Months old

Mr. Malachi

I can not believe you are already 10 months old. I have so enjoyed this last month, you have really shown your personality. You are loud, happy, determined to get your way, and love the social life. You are such a joy in our lives.
You have perfected the army crawl, you do not even try to crawl regular and you are really fast at it. My favorite is when you crawl into my lap and just sit. I will try to stand you up and you will not lock your legs so you can just sit in my lap. You will reach for me when I come into a room and someone else is holding you. The only thing I can get you to pull up on is me. You love toys, you love to figure out how toys work, you love toys that make noise, you love things that roll. Niah has never been a fan of toys but you are the complete opposite. Speaking of Niah, you adore her, you laugh and laugh at her no matter what she does. She could be sitting on you or pulling you across the floor and you squeal with delight (of course I intervene if she gets too rough). Speaking of rough she loves to get close to your face and you love to grab her hair and pull without letting go. You also tend to dig your teeth into any body parts that come near your mouth. You love to clap, I can say, "clap, clap, clap" and immediately you will clap.

You love finger food. You are extremely messy and I think you enjoy throwing food on the floor as much as you do eating. Chicken and strawberries are your favorites. You let me feed you 10 bites of yogurt from a spoon (the most you have ever let me spoon feed you). I have been trying to wean out your dream feed only for you to wake and eat at 5 am but you do go right back to sleep. I guess you are a growing boy.

You go to bed at 7 and sleep till 8. You take 2 naps, first one at 10 waking up at 11:30-12 and you go back down at 1 and sleep till 3. Then you are up till bed time at 7. You get pretty tired starting at 6 - 6:30 and when 7 comes along you are ready for bed.

I have big plans for your first birthday. Sad to see the baby stages go but love to see you grow and to interact with you.

I love you Malachi, more than you will ever know.

  1. That is so sweet! My baby girl is 10 1/2 months now. It is crazy how fast it went by. It is sad watching my baby grow up but I am so proud of her! You seem like a great mama for your children. I hope you had a Merry Christmas!
