10 Months

10 Months

It just seems so crazy that I just typed 10 months. I can't believe that in 2 short months he will be 1 year old! He is turning into such a little boy. He weighed 22lbs and 12oz at our last visit to the doctor. We had to go this month because he had a Sinus Infection. He got put on another antibiotic, this time it was Cefzil (just for my memory)! We only had to do one round though! For the most part Jett has been a VERY healthy guy. He has only had 1 ear infection and this sinus infection and that is REALLY good to be 10 months old. He is still wearing a size 3 diaper but I think we will be at a 4 when we do our 11 month post. 3s are getting a little snug! He is wearing 12-18 month clothes. He is still a great little sleeper. He usually sleeps around 10 hours every night. Nap time comes and goes! If he is at home he takes 2 or 3 30 min to 1 hour naps but naps usually don't happen at the beauty shop! Jett said moma for the first time this month (04-03-10) and happy doesn't describe how it made me feel!!! I have been waiting on that forever! Now he says it probably a million times a day but that is fine with me! He is still a great eater and will just about eat anything I put in front of him. He started eating the Gerber Yogurt Melts and thinks they are really tastey. He is eating some table food and prefers that over baby food. Can't say I blame him! He still has 8 teeth (4 on bottom and top) but I think he may be working on some new ones. He pulled up on April 9 and is becoming a pro at that but we are still learning how to keep our balance. He is SO busy. He is on the move all the time. He zooms from one end of the house to the other in his walker. He seriously goes so fast in that thing... it is SO funny to watch! He tried a Sippy cup last month and he was not interested but I gave him one again this month and he was an instant pro. He has a Sweet Tea addicition just like his moma!! He still takes a Paci but only if he is mad, sad, or trying to go to sleep. I am trying to slowly move away from the Paci. He is still such a social butterfly. I don't think that is going to change either! He is still the best baby. I know I always say that, but it is the honest truth. He really only cries when he is sleepy. He has turned into such a talker... he really talks ALOT. He says ba-ba, da-da, MOMA (!), makes the T sound, and the P sound. He can "click" now and can do the tongue trick (like stick his tonuge out and blow to make spit bubbles and lots of noise). He does those both all the time! He is also a little copy cat, anything someone does he will mock them. He loves to drive (or pretend to drive) Neal or my dad's truck. He drives and dances all at the same time! He got a big boy car seat this month and he seems to like it! He just looks so big in it! He has turned into such a little ham. He is SOOO funny and SO much fun to be with. I love him SOOO much. I can't believe how much he has changed!

Happy as a clam driving Grandpa's truck!

Enjoying a Sippy cup... I think that might be Tea in there! :)

A Late 9 Month Post

My little guy turned 9 months on March 12. He changes so much everyday.

March 12, 2010

Turning into a little boy!

  • You are still wearing a size 3 diaper.
  • This is the 1st month we had to buy diapers... we were SO blessed to get so many from our family and friends before you were born.
  • At your 9 month check-up you weighed 20 lbs and 2 oz. You had lost some weight from your 8 month weight but you were naked when you weighed this time and I think you have lost a few ounces because you are SO busy!
  • You were 28 inches long and your head circumference was 49 cms... you have a large head!!
  • You are still wearing 6-12 month clothes but I have started to buy a few 12- 18 month things because the others are a little snug!
  • You are such a great sleeper. When you are at home you take 2 really good naps from anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours but when you spend the day with your Nanny you take a few 10 minute naps! You are still sleeping thru the night. You go to sleep around 9:30 or 10 and wake up to have a bottle at 6:30 and go back to sleep until about 10! You even slept one day until 10:30.

  • You are still a GREAT eater. You are still eating all kinds of table food but you are starting to enjoy table food more than anything. When we saw Dr. Smith at the 9 month check up he said you can have anything except for nuts, peanuts, hotdogs, popcorn, and honey. You really haven't turned down anything! Just like your mother!!
  • You had the Gerber Puffs for the 1st time this month and you feel in love! I think you would eat an entire container if I would let you. You must think they are really yummy!
  • You started drinking 8 oz in your bottle. You still like to have milk every 3-4 hours. You drink the Similac Advance or the Similac Sensitive. Dr. Smith said no whole milk until 12 months.

  • You are still the best baby. You are so happy all the time and love to smile at everything! Your smile brightens my day!
  • You had your 1st ear infection this month... actually on the day of your check-up. It was on the right side and you had to be on an antibiotic.... Amoxicillin!

  • You love to be around people and you like to hang out with your friend Grey! You chase after Grey but he can crawl REALLY fast!
  • You have 8 teeth... 4 on bottom and 4 on top!
  • You have really became a big explorer this month. You love to find new things and you are very curious about them when you do find something new.
  • You are still doing the army crawl but I think you are closer to getting on your knees than you were. You can really move fast when you do your little army crawl.
  • You have a walker and you zoom around everywhere in that. You can get around so well but we have to put up some gates because you try to eat plants, climb down stairs, and put your fingers in the electrical sockets.

  • You had your 1st hair cut this month. It wasn't a whole head hair cut we just trimmed the hair over your ears because it was way too long. Your Nanny Linda cut it and you did a great job. You weren't really sure what was going on at first... I think it probably was scratching your ear!
  • Your Papa Johnny died this month on February 24, 2010. He had a very bad heart attack. It breaks my heart to know that you will never get to know him. You were his 3rd grandson and he was very proud of you. He came to see you at your Nanny's not to long ago and I am so glad.
  • Time is flying way to fast and you are getting way to big... You are turning into a little boy! I love you SOOOO very much.
