Stafford's 10 Month Update

Dear Stafford,

It has been a big month for you!!  You are so full of smiles and energy that you light up our lives and wear us out at the same time!!

You are an expert crawler now.  I love being downstairs while you are upstairs tearing through the house.  It is amazing how fast you are and how loud.  You pull up on everything and like to push things.  Your favorite thing to play with right now is Bear's cage.  You love to open and close any kind of door and you especially like the refrigerator.  Whenever you hear me open it you charge for it and then pull up and stand inside looking at everything on the shelves.  You usually grab a dressing or lemon juice from the bottom shelf.  You still play with your toys but not as much.  You'd rather look our the window and wait for Daddy to come home!

You are still wearing your 6-9 month clothes and size 3 diapers.  You are starting to get a little chunky in your legs!  I think I'll be moving you up to your 12 month clothes soon.

You are still a great eater!  You still nurse in the mornings and then usually have oatmeal, a banana and something else like cheerios, blueberries or applesauce.  For lunch you usually have cheese, meat, fruit, cheerios and whatever else Mama thinks you might enjoy.  Sometimes you nurse and 12 and 4 and sometimes you only nurse one or the other.  I think you'll probably start skipping one pretty consistently but I'm not sure which one yet.  For dinner you eat 2 or 3 veggies and then get a yogurt.  You love your veggies!!  I've enjoyed making most of your food and it makes me happy when you enjoy eating it.

We got you a new cup and you love drinking out of the straw.  You also like trying to drink out of our cups or water bottles.  It is amazing how you understand.  It is hard to hide certain things from you.  You especially don't like to be left out if we are eating!!

You still love your baths although you stand up for the majority of the time.  You are napping in the mornings around 10 o'clock.  You nap anywhere from 60-90 minutes although occasionally you'll nap even longer.  Afternoon naps are generally around 1:30 or 2 and you nap again for 60-90 minutes.  You still go to bed around 8 and are getting up around 7:15.  Mama wishes you would sleep in just a little more!

You had your first haircut this month and you look so cute!  You are always so happy; grinning at us and hoping we are watching as you try new things.  At least once a day Mama or Daddy says "I love our baby!!"  We are so very thankful for you and the joy you bring to our lives.  We love you so much baby Stafford!!!

Love,
Daddy & Mama

He does have the most precious smile.

This is such a fun age and it only gets better. I am amazed how much more I enjoy B at 14 months than I did at 13 months.
