Lucas William {Ten Months}

Dear Lucas,

Today you are 10 months old! Double digits!!! What is that all about?! I'm totally blaming February having 28 days for the reason why this past month has flown by. I'm still totally in denial that you will be turning ONE in just 2 months and haven't even started planning your birthday party!

Height: 28 inches (18 percentile)
Weight: 20 pounds, 6 ounces (54 percentile)

Clothes: Still in 9 months when wearing pajamas and a few shirts, but everything else is 12 months. I've even put you in a few 18 months things, but they are still a little baggy. Size 3 diapers still going strong!

Nicknames: Lou-Lou/Lulu, Lou-Ba-Lou, Baby brother, LUUUUU-cus, Joy Boy, Hiiiiiiii guy/little guy, crazy crazy, crawly crawler, crazy character, Mr. Crazy

Milestones: I think the only new milestone this month is clapping! Baby claps are seriously the best! You always clap for yourself when eating and after a diaper makes me laugh. You have gotten much better at crawling EVERYWHERE. You are getting quick! You also love to pull up on just about everything....the ottoman, the coffee table, step stools, and yes, even the toilet! We had to lower the crib again because you just love pulling up on it, and also put a crib wrap on so you don't bite off all the paint! You are also very intrigued by the stairs and are constantly trying to figure out how to climb up them. When you are crawling, lots of times you try to stand up, but your legs are still a little wobbly. Daddy and I tried to have you walk between us the other day, but you weren't sure what exactly we were trying to make you do, and just kept plopping yourself down! You are also talking a lot more! Ella always says, "Aww Lucas is starting to talk!" You say "dadadadada" and "babababa" but you don't seem to associate the "dada" with Daddy, so I haven't "counted" it yet. I swear I've heard you say "heyyy" and "Ehhhh-aaahh" (Ella) a few times, but you will NOT say anything on command. It's not like you're stubborn or anything... 😉

Sleep: You are still sleeping great, and even handled the time change last week like a pro! You go down between 6 and 6:30 PM and wake up anytime between 6 and 7 AM. Lately (due to the time change), you've been waking up closer to 7 AM, which has been nice! You take a morning nap from about 9:30-11 (give or take half an hour) and an afternoon nap at around 1:30...sometimes you only sleep an hour, but other times I have to wake you up at 4:30! 

Best Moment: When you figured out clapping your hands!!! I freaking LOVE the baby clapping!

Worst Moment: Last week, we tried out a new kinds of cart at Target (where there are 2 kid seats next to each other, and then the cart is in front of that) and you about lost your mind. You would not stop screaming the ENTIRE time we were in the store. You did not want to be strapped into that cart for one more second!

{oh yay. you've discovered the sticker!}

Likes: Ella, putting everything in your mouth, eating, when we blow raspberries on your tummy, trying to climb on things, crawling all over the place, making a farting noise with your mouth, pulling Ella's hair, PUFFS. You also love pulling yourself close to the drain during bath time and sticking your head under the faucet.

Dislikes: Pretty much anytime you want to move around but can't. So, you hate when I put you in the car seat (you're ok after a few seconds though), the Ergo, diaper changes (you've started rolling over during them and it may or may not have resulted in poop on the walls...), and being strapped in the shopping cart. You also HATE the Nose Frida and getting your nose wiped!

Health: You still have a bit of a runny nose, but I'm thinking it's allergies. (Mine have been bugging me, too!)

Eating: You love, love, LOVE eating. We've introduced lots of new foods this month (you can now eat everything except cow's milk and honey) and you've liked them all! Prior to this month, the only thing you didn't like was avocados...we've tried those again and you like them now! You really like shredded chicken, yogurt (although the first few times you weren't a fan), strawberries, eggs and of course, Puffs! The only thing I've given you that you absolutely won't eat is pasta! What?! Are we related?!? You do not like it whatsoever and spit it out immediately. However, I've also given you chunks of tomatoes/tomato sauce and you gobbled that right up! You are still nursing 5 times a day, but get distracted easily and don't spend much time drinking that milk at all. 

Lulu, you just keep getting cuter and cuter...and more fun!!! You are our crazy guy, but we wouldn't have it any other way. We love chasing you around, watching you explore and learn new things. You are ALL BOY, which I thought was totally a made up thing until I had you. You have so much energy and love life. You are still the chillest baby ever, but if something makes you mad, whoa, do you let us know! You bring more joy to our lives than you will ever know! Thanks for another month of keeping us on our toes and making us smile, sweet boy! :) 

{And, just for fun...Ella at 10 months}
