Landon is 10 Months!

Oh 10 months crept up and surprised us this week... and I know I sound like a broken record when I say.. I can't believe he's 10 months?!?! It is just flying by! I need to freeze time and just hold him for hours and hours and hours!

Weight: at his 9 month appointment last week, he weighed 19 lbs 2 oz. He measured 28.3". He's in the 40th percentile for growth and weight. I feel like he's not gaining enough weight and I was afraid that I wasn't producing enough milk but the ped doesn't seem to worried and even though I asked to wean him to formula, his ped encouraged me to finish off a year then we will transition him directly onto milk. I'm also shocked he doesn't weigh 30lbs considering he eats like a grown man.

Health: I cannot complain.. he is healthy as can be!

Sleep: We were dealing with a few issues for sleep- but then his 3rd & 4th tooth popped up so now he's back on track. I also sense a new transition where he's fully sleeping through the night. ALSO he's down to 2 naps a day AND both naps are 1.5-2 hours long. We are slightly trying out CIO because he does better playing and putting himself back to sleep then having us come in to rock him or help him.

Social: Mr. social butterfly over hear LOVES babies. He is obsessed with other children and wants to be "involved". I tried signing him up for some classes but his dad is super neurotic about flu season and with his last two colds, we didn't want to jinx it because we didn't get him the flu shot. BUT- now that flu season is over with.. swimming classes and gymboree classes is next!

Diet: We were told he can eat ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. so.. that's exactly what we do. He eats what we eat plus 3 meals a day of baby food. I'm not afraid to let him have food- he has figured out how to chew and he will spit out anything that is too big. we make HUGE messes when we are out in public- but basically- he will eat 3oz of baby food (homemade) with a whole pear... noodles.. bananas... a whole carrot steamed... anything he can get into his mouth and chew, he will eat. He still nurses at 7am, 10am, 2:30pm, 4:30pm and an 8oz pumped bottle at 7:30.

Clothes: 6-12 clothing and 9+ month jammies. We really like Pampers sensitive diapers for daytime AND Pampers Night time diapers.. they are AMAZING!

Baby Gear Love: he is obsessed with his bath toys, books, walkers.. he will play with anything.. STRING!!! cell phones... Every time he goes down for a nap/bed, I rearrange his play area. He has "centers" where let him explore.. a reading center, a blocks center, a ball center.. and he just crawls over and plays.. etc etc. keeps him busy!

Crying: Here and there but its very minimal. He doesn't like being told what to do.. and he will cry if he's totally over it (I mean that's his breaking point).. but overall he has the sweetest personality ever. OH- we did have a 2 week phase of stranger anxiety but its all better!

Likes: Food, our dogs (specifically Leiahs tail and ears), his walker, long walks, balloons, balls and bath time. HE likes LOVES bath time. If he's fussy... throw him in the bath.

Milestones: we have tons of milestones this month.. He is signing "all done" we get all done a lot when he's finished on the potty, eating and when he's done napping. lol. His favorite thing to do is "blow kisses" we play a kissing game where I'll blow a kiss then he blows a kiss and it continues until he's laughing hysterically! words: Mama, Dada, more.. he holds up his finger to say he's 1. He's up moving around, Loves to hold our hands to "walk".. and he's busy, busy busy busy busy... I love the way he explores and is soOOo alert about his environment.

Oh my little baby, you're growing up way to fast!!!
