10 months

Colton is 10 months today!  WOW!  That is starting to sound really close to 1 year old--EEK! :-)  It was nice that he turned 10 months on a Sunday so Paul was home to help me get some action shots of our big boy. :)

This month Colton has become extremely mobile, crawling all over...and fast!   He is pulling up on everything, and he has taken a few steps in between walking between Paul and me.

Here I come!
He loves using my legs when I am sitting down to get himself into a standing position
He is also now FINALLY starting to sleep through the night more often than not, without waking up crying--yay!  We still have our nights, but he is doing so much better!  He takes 2 naps a day, usually one around 10am and one around 2:30pm.  He sleeps generally 8pm-8am at night.

On his way "walking" to Daddy!

He is eating 3 solid meals a day....usually oatmeal in the morning, mixed grain and banana or apple sauce at lunch, and chicken/veggie/rice combo at dinner.  He loves graham crackers and puffs and honey nut cheerios.

I'll catch you, buddy!

He is the most giggly baby I have ever seen--he will laugh anytime you do anything even a little silly!  I love his giggle!  He is pretty compliant for the most part.  If he starts crawling toward the stairs or touching something he shouldn't, if I say, "No-no Colton" he will most often turn around and stop doing whatever he was doing, which is super cute!  He is curious about everything and still loves putting everything in his mouth.

He has 8 teeth--four on top and four on bottom.

He loves bath time, watching the lights on the stereo, and reading books.  He loves chewing on sweatshirt strings.  He loves flipping through (and eating!) pages in books, listening to music or us singing, and jumping continually in his exersaucer.  One of his favorite toys is one that has five buttons that slide/push/twist etc that cause an animal to pop out.  He loves when we push the buttons and he gets to close the doors.  He loves walking ALL over the house while we hold his hands.

I love this little guy!
Happy 10 months, Colton!  We love you!
