On August 3rd Toby tuned 10 months old.
Besides tons and tons of walking practice this month, we also saw his love of balls continue to grow. He loves to lay on top of our beach ball and roll over it. He is also crazy about fitting things inside of something so can sit for quite some time placing small balls in and out of containers.
Toby’s love for food continues. He’d eat cookies all day long if I let him. This month he has been crazy about fruit, peas, corn, Honey Nut cheerios, french toast, pancakes, chicken nuggets, steak, yogurt, dumplings and tofu. Sadly, he does not like eggs unless they are all chopped up in fried rice. Eggs are such an easy food to make and have saved the day so many times when I didn’t know what to make with Jude. Hopefully he will come round!
Our daily trips to the playground has also been more fun for him. Long gone are the days I would have to hold him while spotting Jude on the playground and then stick Toby in the Ergo for a feed. Thank goodness!
There was a period before he turned 10 months where he was alternating between crawling and walking and so I would put him in pants for the playground. I tend to just grab clothes in a hurry and not put much thought into how the separate pieces will come together. For this particular outfit, Toby, I apologize!
After my Mom left in July, we had a few rough nights of cry-it-out, and then he was back to sleeping through the night. He goes to sleep around 7pm and I go fetch him for his first feed at 6am. He is usually up earlier, but will sit and play until I come.
Toby is back to loving bath time again, thank goodness. He stands next to me as I fill up the bath lifting up his legs trying to hoist himself over. It’s nice to not have to rush through bath time again.
