Eddie at 10 months

img_0896

This little nugget turned 10 months a few weeks ago {I’m a *leetle slow on this update…oops!} so here lies the latest and greatest.

Eating

This little guy continues to keep us on our toes. Sometimes he likes certain foods, other times he does not. Recently, we were doing so well with plumping him up and then BAM. He got the stomach flu. He lost a good part of his chub {it goes so fast!!} but thankfully the worst of it is over and he is back to eating again. He won’t eat as much as he used to and he doesn’t really want to have a bottle either. I’m probably going to take him to the doctor this week if his appetite doesn’t pick up again. *sigh*

I’m trying to broaden his palate a little but he doesn’t like the things my other two kids used to like. Pasta? Nope. Bread? Depends on the mood. Yogurt? Puh-lease. Lately, we are sticking with his favorite fruit/grain/veggie blends to see what his tummy will tolerate. He still LOVES mashed banana mixed with a little oatmeal or whole grain cereal with a touch of cinnamon. And black beans with a hint of cumin.

Sleeping

This little guy is SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT!! Everyone, sing it with me: HALLELUJAH!!

Finally, we’ve made it. As long as he has a full tummy when he goes down, he will sleep anywhere from 12-14 hours…but usually it’s 12 1/2 or 13. 6:30 to 7 or 7:30 if we’re lucky. It is amazing and I seem to love him 300x more that he’s acquired this little skill. WAY TO GO ED!

He still takes 2 naps a day; one around 9 and one around 2. They are hit and miss. Typically the afternoon nap is shorter than the morning nap, but sometimes it’s vice versa. Generally, he will sleep 3 hours between the two. I love me an adorable, predictable child.

Other Miscellaneous Stuff

A few times we’ve gone into Eddie’s room after hearing him fuss and we’ve found him sitting up or even STANDING up in his crib. It’s shocking! I’ve never seen him pull himself up to stand in person, but he apparently can do it since I walk in to get him and voila! Standing child. So, that’s fun!

He still doesn’t crawl, though I’ve seen him crawl a few strides. He prefers to army crawl his way around. {Blake at 10 months wasn’t crawling either!!}

Still only has one tooth on the bottom in his mouth…and it is the cutest little thing you ever did see! No signs of others joining the party any time soon.

Loves to babble and lets you know exactly how he is feeling, hence all of these expressive photos in this post. Still no ‘mama’ yet. WHATEVER.

Loves peeking around or over things to play peekaboo.

Adores the bath and splashing kicking the water at his brother who typically bathes with him.

Eddie can wave hello or goodbye and clap on demand. It’s so cute!!

Anyways, that’s the latest and greatest on our sweetie-pie Ed. We love having him in our family. He’s so easy to squish and hug and love on!!

  8. Love this! Our grandson is the same age, and this reassures me that everything is fine. Wyatt walked st 8 months, but his sister was 12 months. She ate everything, he is pickier and has only wanted chunked-up table food the past three months, not fed any baby food. Pass on your sleep tricks, please! He is still waking up to nurse (but his dusted was s champion sleeper).

  11. He’s too cute. I have 2 boys. One was the pickiest eater ever. I don’t know how he survived off of 3 spoons of food per day when he was younger. But he’s now a healthy 14 year old eating me out of house and home. He was my firstborn so I guess it’s their job to stress their mom out. I truly believe yours will be fine too and eating everything in sight soon enough. Hugs

  17. I have loved seeing Eddie grow. What a wonderful way to record his development. I so wish I had been better about pictures and recording my children’s development. But before digital it was so much harder.

  18. My baby who’s about the same age as Eddie loves yogurt too (seemingly above all other foods). I am so jealous about your sleep situation as I’m still facing 1-3 (some nights even 5) wakings!
