Since it was Maddox's 10 month "birthday" Friday I tried to get him pinned down for a photo op. Here is what I got.....
I am not stopping Mommy!
But finally I got this.....
Here is what has changed about him in this last month!
He weighs roughly 21-22 pounds now and has gotten taller though I am not sure how much taller. He wears 9 months clothes pretty much wardrobe wide but there are a few 6 mo stragglers and 12 mo must haves.
A typical day usually consists of 5-6 6 oz bottles. Maddox is a GREAT eater. He has tried pretty much anything and thus far we haven't found much that he doesn't like to eat. (with the watermelon exception!) We've tried lots of things and he can chow down on the Gerber snacks like it is no body's business. Sippy cups are still a challenge but we are getting better.
Bed time has been bumped up to 8 pm. We are kind of playing with this though because his afternoon naps are a little too. He still continues to sleep all night long which has been a godsend! We try to get 2 naps in a day. in the morning he sleeps about an hour and in the afternoon it is usually 1.5 to 3 hours.... I wish
Playtime is something Maddox excels at. He has become very fond of his new Tonka truck and anything else that he can ram into things. He is quite the rough houser these days! SO MUCH FUN!
Maddox loves being read to. He loves to turn and touch the pages.
He walks EVERYWHERE. He started walking at the end of July, beginning of August and has just taken off. I think once his feet hit the floor he figured out how much faster it was to be upright and he never looked back. He amazes me with his strength, he falls down and just stands straight up.
We do not have a quiet child. He LOVES to let you know he is around. Quiet is not his style! He still yells Ma-ma and Da-da quite often! We are working on waving bye bye but aren't quite there yet.
Maddox is quite the ham. Our camera has a red light that comes one when you are going to use the flash for pictures. He is so trained to smile when he sees it we end up with some pretty goofy pictures these days.
I have noticed him really putting things together lately... I can just see the wheels turning as he pulls things apart and puts them back together. I love to watch him problem solve (except when he is figuring out how to do things he knows he shouldn't!)
He's gotten more "attached" to us I guess you could say. He doesn't get upset when we aren't around but he knows when we are around.
Dropping him off at daycare has been fun the past week or 2 because he gets a silly grin on his face when we walk up to the door. So excited to get down and play with his little friends. Same goes for when I pick him up. He gets the biggest grin on his face when he meets me at the door. I have to say both of these scenarios make it SO much easier for this mama!
Each day is an adventure with our little man but we love it. I know there are tons of things that I am forgetting but I will have to add it later.... I can't think anymore! :)
