This month has flown by as Teddy has learned to WALK! He took his first few steps in our living room one weekend. After a few days of a couple of steps here and there he is now walking all around our apartment. He can stand up on his own now too.
His first Easter was so much fun. He got a fun basket full of goodies including some bunny ears. He wore his ears all day and didn't seem bothered by them at all. He loves to wear his little baseball hat at the park too. He's a hat guy like his dad.
Teddy is still a sweet, content and a happy baby. Teddy is also curious and determined. He loves to explore every cupboard, drawer and new space he can find. He keeps me on my toes all day. He climbed INTO the shower this past week (fully clothed) while I tried to sneak in a quick 2 minute shower. He also loves to run away naked when I try to change his diaper- looking back and laughing at me while he escapes ;) His cutest new skill is giving kisses. He gives slobbery open mouthed kisses to a few beloved people and it's adorable.
He now naps twice a day and is starting to sleep in a little more (7:15 feels so much better than 6:45 for some reason). He still loves to eat any food we are eating and can grab food off of plates in lightening speed. Teddy still loves pureed veggies the most.
Teddy has turned into a class clown at story time. He gets lots of ohhs and ahhs and applause from other moms/nannies when he walks and he eats up the attention. He smiles and claps for himself when he walks around the circle of other babies :) He loves to clap his hands, kick his feet and shout "ahhh" (for hooray) during the song If You're Happy and You Know it. He just started waving today! It's so cute. He is so social and LOVES to go up and approach other babies, familiar or not. And he knows the sign for "all done" now during meal time. He is making his speech-language pathologist mom proud.
He still loves to "read" to himself in his room. He also loves to shut doors and often shuts himself in his room and then gets sad when he can't get out.
Happy 10 months to our wonderful Teddy Bear, its been another great month!
