10 Months

Happy 10 Months, Ted-Ted!

Sleep:  Teddy goes to bed for the night around 7-8p.  He sometimes wakes up once to eat, but there's no discernible pattern.  I still feed him when he wakes up since he's on the smaller side I figure he can use the extra calories.  He wakes up for the morning around 6:45-7:15a.  Usually it's pretty close to 7.  He takes two naps a day.  The first is around 9a and is about an hour long.  The second is around 1:30-2p and is 45-60 minutes long.  Yes,  Tillie sleeps more in a day than Teddy does.  We lowered his crib this month.  He sleeps in a a sleep sack and with one of his blankies -- Aden + Anais swaddles.

Size: At his 9 month check up he was 17lbs 14oz and 27.5" - both of those stats are in the 15th percentile.  his head, however, is in the 85th percentile.  I can tell he's grown since then, but he's still not a huge guy.  His head doesn't seem that big to me either.  He's perfectly comfortable in 6-9m and 6-12m clothes.  His feet are still tiny and only is 0-6m Robeez and Pedipeds fit.  He now has 6 teeth, 4 on top.

Food: Breastfeeding is still going great.  He gets purees a couple times a day and he loves yogurt.  He's recently refused any pureed vegetables, but will eat them in regular form.  I pretty much give him some of whatever we're having.  He had pizza casserole this week with the rotini noodles cut in half.  He also ate half of a cheesy breadstick yesterday.  He will steal any of Tillie's cups(sippy or straw) that she leaves lying around.

Movement: Teddy does this modified butt scoot/ crawl to get around.  I really need to take a video of it.  He can go anywhere and gets in to EVERYTHING, moreso than Tillie did at this age.  (Although, she didn't start crawling until after 10 months.)  He pulls up to his knees to reach things, but doesn't pull all the way up yet.  He can easily get into a sitting position on his own.  He started waving this month and it's the cutest thing ever.

Play:  He loves anything that Tillie has, pieces of paper found on the ground, blocks, books, balls, trucks and rubber spatulas.  He "talks" a lot, but it's mostly gibberish.  It's starting to have more word-like qualities though.  He sometimes says Mom and something that sounds like "yesh".  I would say his favorite thing to do is empty any bin, basket or cupboard he can get to.  He's very thorough at this job.  He likes going for rides in the stroller as long as I keep moving.  After a month of thinking he's hot stuff while riding in the seat of a shopping cart he now would rather ride in the baby carrier facing out again.

He is so handsome! I can't believe he's already 10 months! Harper's built the same way - 10th or 15th %ile for height and weight but her head is up in the 70-80th%ile. Makes getting shirts in her size over her head fun. Lol!
