It's hard to believe that our littlest guy is over 10 months old now and that in less than 2 months we'll be celebrating the big first birthday!
Jonas has gotten a LOT more mobile in the past few weeks and is officially all over the place. He especially likes to climb and open doors and cabinets. He's mastered climbing up the stairs and is even getting pretty good at sliding back down backwards...with a lot of supervision, of course. He likes emptying my cabinets while I'm busy in the kitchen but usually gets bored shortly after and moves on to his next target. He's fallen headfirst into the toybox a few times this week and grunts, groans or screams when a desired toy is out of reach.
I've finally given up on baby food. While on vacation I realized that our boy does like to eat...just not that baby food mush! His favorites are any kind of cracker and Cheerios. He's not a huge fan of many fruits or veggies, but he did eat two entire slices of veggie pizza the other day for lunch! He definitely has a mind of his own and is figuring out how to use it. He's still not sleeping through the night but as our summer schedule comes to an end and a regular schedule becomes our norm he's gonna get some sleep training - this momma needs some sleep too! Other milestones from the past few weeks include waving, clapping, blowing kisses, saying "da-da" and "ma-ma", pulling up, and beginning to "cruise" a little. Jonas is happy and smiley all the time and we, especially his big brothers, are really enjoying how he's beginning to become an active part of the family!
