10 Months Old

Evan turned 10 months today!  He still isn’t crawling, but we’ve decided that he will most likely skip that milestone and move straight to walking.  He still wants to walk around the condo assisted all the time, and has started to “cruise” along the furniture on his own as well.  He enjoys making his way along the couch and the bed, as well as in his crib.

We’ve tried letting Evan feed himself, but so far he enjoys feeding the dog much more.  We’ve introduced apricot, banana, blueberry and asparagus purees, and also shredded cheese as a finger food. He loves the cheese, and will often refuse bites of veggies while accepting a piece of the cheese.  :o/ He is now working on 3 teeth (2 bottom, 1 top right), so hopefully he will be able to handle chunkier food soon.  The teeth seem to be taking forever to come in.

His favorite toys remain pretty constant, but recently he seems to really enjoy balls.  He likes to kick one around while walking with assistance, and also to pass it back it forth with Mom or Dad.  He also really likes to turn light switches off, over and over again. He has his own cute way of clapping, and will mimic when someone claps. He’s still working on perfecting his pincher grasp, and can pick up pieces of food (and grass) with his thumb and finger. He’s ridiculously ticklish, which is ridiculously cute, and recently he likes to blow raspberries on Mom’s tummy and then giggle.

He usually about takes 2 one hour naps a day, sometimes longer, but is nowhere near sleeping through the night. Mom and Dad are still waiting on a breakthrough. :o) He weighs 19lbs 8oz now.
