My happy little fella is 10 months old! I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel with formula and bottles! It seems that each week gets easier. He is able to eat a wide variety of foods now, although I told him he needs more teeth before I can give him steak :) He is still cruising, and standing some, but still has no real inclination to walk. He pushes a little walker around, but when he really wants to go somewhere, he drops down to crawl. You can see by the expression on his face in this picture that he is constantly looking to get into something. Right now he is pulling up on the plantation shutters and pulling the little bar that opens and closes them. Big no-no! He is always pulling leaves off the topiaries and trying to eat my house plants. He has shown an interest in clapping (finally) and is constantly playing with his hands and mouth. He's had a stuffy nose this week- it's that time of year already! It's a constant fight to keep the saline squirted up there, but I feel like if I can keep it broken up, maybe he won't get "sick." He's growing by leaps and bounds and is getting a little more cuddly. I can't wait to see what his future holds!
