Jude is 10 months old!
And have an extra nap each day (usually in the Ergo).
He even managed a few smiles.
He really been cruising around exploring the whole house furniture walking – he is getting more and more confident.
He loves playing peek-a-boo games and chasing after us. He can also spend lots of time banging two things together testing out the different sounds, or rubbing an item against a piece of furniture. Anything that makes noise is a favorite- it’s really cute as he will bounce up and down and dance when he hears music or makes some of his own.
He still likes to be around us during the day, and will crawl wherever I go, but from time-to-time he will leave me in the kitchen and crawl back to the lounge and engage in a bit of self playtime. It’s really good to see that.
He also loves playing with other kids- especially if they are a bit older so he can watch what they do. So we are keeping up with our weekly playdates.
Our daily outings are also a must, he gets a bored inside all day and so we make it a point to get him out and about.
Foodwise, he is still eating like a champ and we are giving him new things to try all the time. He’s digging his dumplings, steamed meat buns, mac n’ cheese, and clam chowder at the moment. We also do a lot of his old favorites like green peas and pears. He lets me feed him with the spoon again sometimes which has been really helpful.
Sleep is still really great, from 6pm to 6:30am, with no wake-ups. He goes down for bedtime and naps most of the time like a champ, there is only the odd lunchtime nap battle where he just doesn’t want to sleep.
The amount of things he understands continues to amaze us. He responds to simple phrases like ‘where are the kitty cats’?, ‘give to mommy’ or ‘drink your water.’. He is also babbling words like ‘mama’ over and over. I think he knows it’s me, or maybe it’s because he hears me say it so much. Anyhow, it looks like it could be a front runner for his first deliberate word.
