About A Boy

No, not the film. Nor the book.

Ha – did you even know there was a book??

This is all about my little boy… he has just hit 10 months. That’s getting dangerously close to the one year mark. It means he’s cute and interactive and lots of fun, but it also means he’s not going to be a baby for all that much longer. Sniff sniff.

But this post is a celebration of all the cool things about him at the moment.

It’ll probably definitely be pretty boring to anyone who isn’t immediate family, so here’s a big fat

The Little Man 🙂

*He has seven teeth. Gosh darn it they make for a cute grin.

*He can clap his hands (at last! He started at 9 months 30 days, lol)

Squint through the blur and you'll see he's clapping. Really.

*He eats solid food (at last! I finally gave up even trying him on pureed stuff… he just skipped that stage entirely and is on the Mr Independent I-will-only-eat-it-if-I-can-pick-it-up-and-feed-myself)

*He walks holding onto the furniture, stopping periodically to bang any flat surfaces as hard as possible. This is often accompanied by loud shouting lovely singing along.

*He plays rough-and-tumble games with his Pappa, and laughs his head off the whole time 🙂 This YouTube video clip shows it better than photos can.

*He waves and ‘calls’ to people. And dogs. But not to other babies – he doesn’t seem to know what other babies are for. What do you mean play with them? Huh?

*He likes to take turns and ‘share’ whatever he’s playing with. No matter how soggy and chewed-up. We humour him, but only cos he’s cute.

*He can say nanannananananrarararararararararaaaaaaooooorrr. Oh, that’s not a great baby achievement? Oops, strike that then. Sorry.

*He turns the pages of books. This is obviously very exciting for him, as he’s not at all interested in the story, the pictures or the funny voices we put on for each character.

{No photos of this one… it’s usually at bedtime. Bringing out a camera at bedtime would be far too exciting, and totally ruin our bedtime routine…}

*He’s getting the hang of a ball. Daddy’s boy, for sure.

What a legend.

Happy 10 months
