We've reached the double digits! The countdown to the big ONE is officially on.

I love that I've stuck with these monthly updates, because it's been so fun to go back and read the months prior and see how much he's grown. To be honest, it's getting harder and harder to notice any huge developmental milestones.

He's getting bigger and faster at moving around - he can even stand on his own for a couple seconds now! No new teeth, although he's been showing some signs of teething again so I wouldn't be surprised if we see a couple more next month. He's been talking up a storm lately! A few new words are "bye bye" or buh-buh and to my utmost joy, mama! We're pretty sure he knows how to say our dog's name, Heidi, too. Still not a lot of progress on the hair... except for a little flip curl that he's developed in the back. ;) Cutest thing ever? Yes.

He will actually sit and read a book with me and watch the occasional kid show/movie. Currently we are working our way through the very educational movie Astro Boy. ;) I found the entire movie on youtube! I think I may be enjoying it a little more than him. Ha!

Also, he is eating like a toddler these days. I cut up pieces of bananas, blueberries, grapes, strawberries, bread, pasta, hamburger meat, chicken... he eats it all right up. Really, he will eat anything that we give him! I know he's done eating when he starts throwing his food on the floor. We're very thankful we have Heidi to help clean up the mess! :)

He's an explorer. He loves to discover new things. He has an "excited face" whenever people come around. He's definitely a little social bug.

I always knew I'd love being a mom, but I'll be honest - I wasn't convinced it would be this fun! :)
