My best boy is 10 months old. My how time flies.
Thompson now weighs about 20 lbs, has two teeth on the bottom, and the top two are just starting to emerge. He's wearing size 12 month clothing, size three diapers during the day and size fours at night with a Sposie pad for extra absorbency. He's pulling up on everything, and has even stood unassisted for a few seconds a time or two. Each time he does, he squeals and looks so proud of himself. It's adorable.
It's really difficult to read books to him while in the nursery glider. He wiggles and squirms until he's halfway off the chair. I read to him, hanging on to one limb, the rest of his body dangling off the chair. I usually just give up halfway into the book. We've now started to read books to him after mealtimes while he's still in his highchair, and it's worked great. I've been reading this book to him each day, and he loves it. Every time I bring the book out his hands go up in the air and he gives me the biggest smile. I think he just really likes to chew on it, but I like telling myself I'm raising a baby genius. Think I'll be putting this book in his easter basket so we can get a little more variety.
I just can't believe how close we're getting to his first birthday. In less than two months I will have a ONE year old. It just seems too crazy to even type that.
