"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life;
to put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived." ~Henry David Thoreau

Devin at 10 Months

This little guy turned 10 months old on Wednesday. I say this with every milestone, but time is flying by too fast. He is the most enjoyable baby! Here are some of the things he is doing at this age-

-He is extremely mobile. He crawls at the speed of light, and goes striaght into pulling himself up on ANYTHING (even flay walls). He then loves to let go and stand on his own for a few seconds. It's even more fun when people are cheering for him!

-He stays entertained forever by exploring the house on all fours. He does this funny little hand thing when he is exploring something, where he opens and closes his hand on the surface super fast. It kind of looks like he is scratching it. He loves to pull anything and everything off any surface he can reach. This evening he pulled a picture frame off onto his foot anf started yelping about it while holding his little footsie in the air. Poor guy.

-He loves mouths. If he is upset about anything, all I have to do is pick him up and show him the inside of my mouth. He is instantly calmed down and amazed.

-If I am sweeping the kitchen floor, he speed crawls over to the pile I am making of bread crumbs, cereal, lint, hair, etc...and he quickly grabs something (anything) and puts it in his mouth. He does this before I have time to stop him!

-Loading and unloading the dishwasher takes three times as long because he "helps" me so much :)

-He wears an 18 month shirt and a 12 month pants. He weighs right at 20 pounds. He doesn't wear shoes just yet, but he will soon because the weather is strating to cool down a bit :(

-He is obsessed with the top of the stairs. A few times I have not had the gate up and he scurried over to peek over the top step. Good thing I have always caught him when he does that!

He loves baby food! Except he hates anything with beef in it. He really likes the chicken and apple combo. Often times he throws a massive fit when I put him in his high chair because it reminds him that he is hungry...and I am not getting the food into him fast enough! He eats baby food about three times a day, and things like pieces of bread or fruit puffs two times a day. He either drinks a bottle or nurses in bteween solid food.

-He is finally sleeping in a real crib. He now goes down at nap time and bed time with out a fussm but it took a few days of being upset for him to finally be okay with it. It is such a joy being able to put him in his crib and have him go to sleep on his own! He is also sleeping most nights all the way through these days. There is a God!!
