Ten months is waaaayyyy too close to twelve months, Coop, and I'm just not mentally prepared to say that my baby is one.
Instead of dwelling on it though, I will simply enjoy your little ten-month-old personality and all of your newest "tricks." These tricks include a brand new smile (which came out of NOWHERE!) and a new sound. The smile is cute, it's probably the biggest smile your little face can muster. The sound is "ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-ma-mom-mom-mom-mom" and it melts my heart because that's kind of my name :)
You still only have your two bottom teeth, but we get to see them a whole lot more now that your new smile has arrived. You've decided that it's more fun to throw your food to Weezydog than it is to actually eat it yourself. You laugh the most when Weezy kisses your face and you try to give back the love by burying your whole head into Weezy's fur. You kids really do love each other...
You wake up earlier now (7:30am) but we've gotten into a great habit of taking a two hour nap from 9:30-11:30am. That's mama's time to do her work, shower, make a plan for the day, and relax. Because you're simply not ingesting as much food as before, you take an extra bottle each day. Maybe you're just working on growing even more!
Speaking of growing, you've now outgrown a pair of 18 month jammies. This is unreasonable and it makes your mom and dad very sad. There are still a few pairs of 12-18 month jammies that fit; it totally depends on the brand.
You're soooooo close to pulling yourself up to stand! Dad's seen you do it once but mom hasn't been so lucky. Anyway, enough updates! Here are a few photos of life at ten months :)
