dear 10 months
Oh Buddy. You are 10 months now and such the little man. Yesterday you learned how to clap and I also learned that you really know how to disobey. While you were eating you tug at the tablecloth and when I said "NO" you just looked at me and gave an adorable toothy grin. I laughed. Today I will not laugh and be firm with you so that you know that you need to obey me too and not just your daddy who doesn't laugh.
As your Mama I'll just go ahead and say that I think you're a smart one. You are putting things together so much these days and playing so well by yourself. Today as I was helping Daddy get his lunch together you quickly bolted for and proceeded to climb up the stairs. Slow down lil buddy.
Thankfully you're eating better now, choking and gagging less, and sleeping through the night thanks to us coming to the conclusion that it was time for you to do so! It really wasn't as painful as I would have thought and I'm pretty sure you could have been doing this for awhile now.
Truth be told the second night of sleep training I missed seeing you during the night. You've got me wrapped around your finger little one.
I can't believe you'll be ONE soon. I know that's cliche to say but it's true. We're going to have to celebrate this year by throwing you a party. It'll have some baby theme I'm sure as I know someday you'll want a truck or airplane party. I don't want to get stressed by the planning though and just focus on what this year has meant to us and how much you've changed our world.
With ever growing love,
