10 Months Old- 10/30/12


My Sweet Hunter-

Today you are now in the double digits for months! Even though you are only 10 months old you seem so much older to me and it feels like you've been in our lives for much longer. Every month you are even more fun as you learn and interact more and more. You are the light of our lives little man and I don't think you will ever know how much you are truly loved by us.

Love,
Mommy 

Weight/Length- According to our home scale you are 24.5lbs. I suspect you're right around 29" tall.

Eating- You are still getting three 5-6 oz bottles of breastmilk during the day in addition to nursing in the morning. You get a 9oz bottle of formula before bed. As for actual food, you have really gotten better this past month with table food. You are now starting to eat the food that daycare provides in addition to multiple snacks throughout the day. In the mornings you will have everything from pancakes to sausage to muffins and toast. For lunch you will get veggies and some kind of meat. For dinner you eat whatever we eat (if it's safe). For snacks you will have crackers and puffs and fruit. Your daycare teacher has commented on not only how much you eat but how well you are eating table food at your age. You LOVE sitting at the little table with the other kids in your class. Eating is definitely one of your favorite activities.

Sleep- With the exception of the past couple nights when you weren't feeling well you've been sleeping GREAT this past month. You sleep from 8pm until 6-6:30am straight and take 1 or 2 naps a day.  The weekend of daddy's birthday you slept for 12 hours straight Friday and Saturday night. It was amazing. I think a combination of all you eat and all the activity you get at daycare has really helped you to sleep better.

Clothes- You are now wearing 12 and 18 months clothes. A lot of the 12 months clothes are getting small on you. However all your pants are still pretty long on you. 

Diapers- Still in size 3 diapers but plan to move you to size 4's when we run out of these. 

Appearance- Your hair has started to get really curly in the back and a lot thicker. It's still very light brown and getting quite long. A haircut is going to be happening in the near future. Your eyes are still a grey/blue/green combination. You just started to cut your 4th tooth on the bottom and 6th tooth total.

Personality- You are still such a happy baby. The ladies at daycare always comment on what a good and happy baby you are. It's very rare that you are super fussy and is usually a sign that you are teething or sick. You've become extremely curious and are always trying to get into things you shouldn't. You are quite determined and when you see something you want you get there in a hurry. You love to play and get attention and get quite unhappy if you are being ignored. You also get upset when we take away something you want. You've slowly started to develop an apprehension around strangers or people you haven't seen in a while but that doesn't typically last very long. You are also becoming quite the daddy's boy, your face just lights up when you see your daddy. It's the sweetest thing. You are such a sweet little dude.

Likes-
All the same things from last month including:
-crawling around
-climbing the stairs
-standing up against the coffee table and couch
-remote controls and phones
-any toy that makes noise
-being in the big bathtub
-being outside
-eating table food
-banging on pots and pans with a wooden spoon
And always you are really starting to like your dog and cat, Moxie and Halpert

Dislikes-
All the same things from last month including:
-Having your clothes and diaper changed
-Being stuck in your pack n play
-Being in your high chair if you aren't eating
-Baby gates
-Being ignored

Milestones-
-You primarily crawl on all fours now.
-You pull up and cruise using furniture for support
-Eating mostly table foods
-Cut your 6th tooth
-First trip to Urgent Care for an infected abscess on your finger
-Learned how to go down the stairs by sliding backwards on your belly
-First trip to the pumpkin patch
-Celebrated daddy's birthday
-First Hurricane (Sandy)

Sounds like he is sleeping well, eating well and just doing great in general! Love all the photos, especially the one of him with his camo hat on!! :)

Chloes shares all the same dislikes, but she dislikes everything it seems.
I think Hunter looks more like his daddy everyday.

Connor and Hunter are now 30 buddies! I've made that up but I will always remember Hunter's birthday this way.
