today you are ten months old. i can’t believe how fast time has gone….i also can’t imagine you not in our life.
what are you up to?
well, you’re cruising like a pro. you have been for a while, actually. but you’re getting really bold at times, and several times a day we watch you let go of whatever you’re bracing against and just stand. without support. by yourself. like a real boy. and a few of those times? you’ve had the gall to take a step towards whoever was near.
and then you fall down.
but whatever. logistics.
you eat three decent meals a day (where you feed yourself for part of it), use sippy cups during the day and bottles in the early morning and at night, get angry when you can’t use the spoon to feed yourself, and munch on snacks, too.
we have this new game where you sit in your high chair, and with a (clean) spoon i open my mouth and you “feed” me. and then you pull it out of my mouth, i say “yum!” and clap my hands. and then you clap. and then we do it again. and again. and again. and once more.
you have SEVEN teeth. which is cool because i like prime numbers. you’re a little unsure of this whole tooth paste and tooth brush gig, but you tolerate it.
it’s always an adventure when i check on you while you sleep. we never know how you’re going to be laying! one of my recent favorites, though is this:
with both legs folded under you.
you let me cut your hair with clippers! which really makes me glad because it was really scary for me when i would use scissors. because, you know, you move a lot. and you have eyes and stuff that i’d like to keep attached to you.
you delight us more and more each day. you’re such a happy baby that i’m afraid that if we ever have another we might be disappointed! you’re sweet with your hugs and kisses, and the way you wave bye-bye.
jonas, we love you more than you’ll ever be able to understand. that’s the way it’s supposed to be, i think. layers and layers of love that just grow and grow and grow.
