10 Months

You're 10 months old now, Grey. That means I need to start throwing together some 1st birthday party ideas. (OMG!)

You are such a happy little fellow. You smile and laugh easily. You find some of the strangest things hilarious. For instance, you love when we bite your fingers, gently of course, but that will always make you laugh. You curl up and chuckle if we stomp our feet like we're running at you. Being hidden under a big blanket and playing peek-a-boo continue to be pretty big favorites too.

Really, you just cruise around the house exploring things and trying to stay out of Sam's way. If you two do cross paths, you normally end up going under him but you never get upset. It's like you were born knowing the pecking order. You can usually be found at the bottom of the stairs, scraping a toy on the vent in the hallway, or hanging onto the bench near the kitchen.

Recently, you learned to clap when we ask you to, but of course you aren't consistent. Well, you're consistent in that if I'm trying to show off this new trick to someone, you won't do it. You also shake your head "no". It's really pretty cute. We're just wondering how long it will take you to realize that "no" really does mean to stop doing what you're doing, not do that cute little head shake.

You got your first ear infection this month. Yuck. As evidenced in these pictures, you were feeling pretty bad for a couple days but we've got you on the mend now.

Poor baby! Hope he is better now. It is hard to believe he is almost a year old. They sure do grow up fast. Love you all, MM
