Rant: Not nursing well, eats any and all paper in his path, won't eat more than one good meal a day, did I mention he eats paper! Whining and not talking much. Babbles sometimes, but mostly WHINES!!! Won't sit still for diaper changes, might have ringworm. Bites during recent nursing sessions, won't sit still for more than 3 seconds for anything unless sound alseep,
ok, that feels better.
Rave: walking like crazy, gets up to standing on his own, or with "magic" toothbrush. Playing peekaboo on his own, sleeping 7-9 hours in a row a few nights a week, finally weighs over 16lbs, has 5 teeth, eats really well once a day, has a sense of humor, usually goes down easily for naps 2x day, enjoys play groups at library, recognizes and loves grandparents, pets grand-doggie nice, chases our cat with huge smile every morning, walks over to us, gives hugs and puts his head on shoulder for 3 seconds. so sweet!
here's a cell phone vid of him walking to daddy!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gBD7gM_emNk
As an "older" mommy, I'm amazed at the energy level he requires from us. Our life was soooooo slow and simple before-but also way boring. A 10 month old active baby is just what the midwife ordered! DP and I need to get back into shape and this little guy is just the ticket.
love to all the almost year old babies and wonderful mommies!
