10 Months

 Yesterday was the little man's 10 month birthday.  I was shocked to realize when I pulled out the 10-month card that there are only two more cards - 11 and 12 months!  How fast this year has gone!

 By the time I got around to snapping photos yesterday, he didn't want any part of it.  These first two pictures are from yesterday, and the rest were taken today.  He's finally starting to get a little chub on those legs and he feels pretty solid now.

 See?  Much better mood today.  You can see that his pants were riding up here.  I think these are 3-6 month pants.  Most of his clothes are 6 month size now, and 6-9 month.  9 month clothes are still pretty baggy on him, but we're about ready for the transition.

 He was all about holding the sign today... and flapping it around, and fanning himself with it, and trying to eat it...

 He's a pretty happy kid these days.  He loves to be up and around everyone, but will play quietly by himself for hours if you let him ... and if he doesn't see me.  He loves to eat - especially all sorts of fruit.  Some of his favorites these days are pears, bananas, mangoes, and he puts up with strawberries and apples, though they aren't his favorites.  I think it's a texture thing.  He much prefers cooked apples, but we've been having fresh lately, which are a little bit chunky.  I've been wanting to switch him to chunkier food, but he still has no teeth, so there's only so much we can do.  He did eat chicken the other night - blended with a little bit of non-dairy sour cream.  He thought that was pretty good.  I bought him some gluten-free cereal bars - the kind with the strawberry jam in side them - and he LOVES those.  The one thing he definitely is not fond of is potatoes.  He makes terrible gagging faces and shakes his head no, then grins really big.

 So after holding the sign for awhile, he decided he'd rather eat it.

 Literally.  The eight year old was trying to get him to spit out the chunk of the sign he bit off.

 He took a pretty big bite out of it, and was going back for more.

 He has a one-track mind ....

 He wanted his paper back!

 Leaning forward to reach the paper made him discover that he could rock himself in the chair, so that was the new distraction.

Then it was time to kick back and take it easy.  These photo shoots are hard work, you know.
