Ten Months.

And just like that, I have a 10 month old. 10 months. In just two short months, I'll have a one year old and I'm not at all ready to face that yet.

Ten months has been a fun age, albeit a bit exhausting. Ethan is all over the place and into everything. It's been a month for crawling, for climbing, for pulling to stand, for exploring. It's been a month for really forming solid opinions on things and refusing to go to sleep until dada comes home.

At ten months, Ethan's favorite foods would be leafy greens, particularly kale and collard greens. He's been into feeding himself these days. We've moved onto an even mix of finger foods and purees. Sleeping is still not Ethan's best skill, but he's doing a little bit better. These days it's a cause for celebration if he only has one or two wake-ups per night, which is what he's been averaging lately. He's in 12-18 month clothing at this point and size four diapers. At his last doctor's visit he was 24 pounds and almost 30 inches tall. He's down to one nap per day at around noon, which normally lasts for an hour and a half to two hours. He's also coming so close to cutting his fifth tooth. It's almost there. Almost.

Ethan's social calendar is still a busy one. We do Stroller Strides, My Gym and swimming lessons throughout the week. These days, we have a first birthday party nearly each weekend as all of Ethan's friends have started to turn one.

Ethan loves animals -- petting them, snuggling them, laughing whenever we're on a walk and a dog on a leash passes by. He's starting to love his touch-and-feel animal books, especially one that he has which features this soft, brown bunny. He thinks petting this bunny is hilarious and never lets me turn the page. When we're out at a store, he'll see something he wants and start his chant of dat! dat! dat! We've got that, we've got cat, we've got dada -- I won't take it personally. Mommy has to come at some point, right? I say this at nearly each monthly recap, but I'm fairly certain that this is the best age yet. It's wonderful watching him really start to absorb his surroundings and grow into his own person. Though it doesn't at all feel like it's truly been this long yet, it has been such an incredible ten months.
