10 Months Old... and some Photos

Yes, yes, I know I have been remiss in my duties to post new photos and videos lately. So, what has been going on? Boy Friday has been pushing himself backwards across the room, as well as getting up on his hands and knees and rocking. He can even move a bit up on his hands and knees (backwards!). The other night he backed his way into the cat house:

In the House

And, yes, he did remove those DVDs on the floor all by himself. He finally has that baby Ipod thing figured out and he will actually grab it and press the button purposefully. He is also throwing stuff (or flinging, really). So, watch out! A heavy plastic toy could be headed in your direction at any second.

Another Big Mess

The other day, the Little Dude also decided he might be able to feed himself stew. As you can see - it was VERY messy. But, I think he enjoyed scooping it up all by himself!

Flying Baby!

Oh, and you'll also notice that the Little Dude's stats have been updated - he had his 10 month appointment this past week. He's still a bit on the thin side at 19 lbs (only at the 15th percentile), while his height is currently at the 58th percentile - of course, this is nothing to be concerned about. He's just a skinny little guy. However, he is now 29 inches long, meaning we need to get him out of his infant car seat very soon. We suspect he's been a bit cramped in there anyhow!

Today's Photos

These were all taken without a flash - very difficult to do inside my house, actually. There never seems to be enough light! Of course, there is never any natural light during bathtime...

Whoops... there goes Smartypants!

Friday had an accident yesterday - just minor, really. He caught his hand under his leg while he was sitting and fell forward, hitting his face on the wood floor. He's fallen before, but usually it's been the back of his head being clunked. Unfortunately, this led to some bleeding (which finally stopped maybe five hours later). Poor little guy. In these photos (from today) you can kind of see the red spots on his upper lip from where his upper incisors hit. Luckily, he didn't seem at all bothered by his lip today - and it doesn't seem too swollen, either.

Looking Small

We've been having a bit of trouble with nap time lately. We are down to one short nap some days, and two long naps other days. Weird and rather annoying (because he *is* tired those days when I can't seem to get him to sleep at all)!

Lunch and dinner have become difficult, too. Friday is very demanding and selective these days. What, no more cheese? Well I'm not eating these silly puffs. Or these green things. GIMME MORE CHEESE. Or yogurt. (He'll take yogurt almost always.) Not fast enough with the cheese? Ok, then - I'll just be shrieking here until you can get back to me with that. And NO WAY on those bananas. ICK. Peaches? Eh. Not so much, thanks.

Oh, and then there's the dressing and diaper changing... like wrestling a greased pig. And he just grabs ahold of the changing pad and flips over onto his belly. Repeatedly. Oh, and sometimes screams, too. Sometimes diverting with toys works... sometimes. Smartypants!

Scooting Around

I set Boy Friday down on the bed the other day - he really enjoys hanging out in new places. Here he is scooting around the bed like a pro! And he thinks its all pretty fun, too. Today he almost had some furniture in his mouth after I left him alone for a minute on the floor!
