The evening started out well with the two kids watching Octonauts.


Then they got progressively goofier.




This little guy also seems to be in constant motion. I took a 2-minute clip of him “sitting” next to his sister while they watched Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood together.

We visited the aquarium today and Peanut had a fun time walking around like her owned the place.


His new favorite thing is backing up to things to sit down. I still remember when Janie was in that stage.



We went on the “living roof” before heading home and got a photo of this crazy kid.


Then she took a photo of Mama and Dada. Nice job!

big boy


Our Peanut is becoming such a big boy. This afternoon, he was enjoying a seat in his big sister’s chair.


Then he got really comfy and enjoyed playing with big sister’s flashlight too while she was still at school.


And here’s a photo of him taken by his big sister. Janie made it black and white on purpose and said “it’s camouflage!”

10 months


This big boy turned 10 months old today! Time has really flown by and our little baby is getting stronger, bigger, and more mischievous by the day. I’m surprised I was able to get a photo of him sitting still without trying to dive off the sofa or rip off the sticker.


Highlights from this past month:

  • Teeth: two more bottom teeth!
  • Gross Motor: He’s pulling to stand, cruising, and crawling all over the place!
  • Fine Motor: Shaking stuff is his jam right now. I think he learned it from story time at the library. They give all the kids bells to shake for certain songs.  He’s also gotten a lot better at turning his pacifier around and putting it in his mouth when he’s trying to sleep.
  • Speech: Still says “da” and “ma” and has added “na” and “ba”.
  • Sleep: He sleeps in his pack-n-play most nights now and consistently goes to sleep around 7pm, wakes at midnight, and then again at 4am. If he wakes at any other time at night, he usually puts himself back to sleep. He’s also sleeping on his side and tummy more often too.
  • Illnesses: I feel like he’s had a snotty nose and cough throughout this whole month of May. He also had a low-grade fever for 3-4 days last week. Poor baby.
  • Eating: This boy LOVES to eat and we’ve been giving him more beef and eggs to bump up the iron content in his diet. He’s moving away from purees and taking small pieces of tablefood like a champ now.
  • Personality: He’s a pretty noisy kid and seems to do it to make sure the family knows he’s around. He’s especially loud and demanding during meals. If Mama is not fast enough with putting more food in front of him, she screams. He’s learning the word “more” by signing and he will do it sometimes. But most of the time, he bangs on the tray or makes a loud noise.




Happy 10 Months, Peanut!!
