10 months

Just getting started
Here we go...

Dear Henry,

In honor of your 10 month birthday, I will make a top 10 list for you, David Letterman style.  You will probably never know who David Letterman is, as he just retired, but he mastered the art of the Top 10.

Top 10 Ways You Know You're a Mommy:

1.  White just isn't a part of your wardrobe.

2.  Your marital life now includes conversations about poo-poo: it's color, consistency, etc.

3.  Showering is a luxury.

4.  You have to plan your bathroom breaks ahead of time because your little one can get into trouble in 2.5 seconds.

5.  You've traded in your regular sitcoms of Sex in the City and Grey's Anatomy for Henry Hugglemonster and Pooh and Friends.

6.  Naps are an exquisite no, it's not you who will be sleeping during these naps.

7.  You can't name any of the recent top hits, but you know every word to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Mary Had a Little Lamb and Itsy Bitsy Spider.

8.  You're known to leave the house without your keys or your wallet, but by golly, there are at least 10 different toy varieties and 3 snacks in your purse.

9.  You have mastered the art of funny faces to distract your fussy little one when he is making a scene in the grocery store, a restaurant, the check out line.

10.  Your little one might know exactly how to push your buttons, but one look with those big eyes will completely melt your heart and turn all of your "No's!" into "Yes's."

It only took 17 shots to get this pose

Sweet Henry, this past month has been so much fun.  You are still army crawling, but man can you move!  We think you are going to skip classic crawling all together.

Feet are funny!

You are trying so hard to walk.  You crawl all over me in an effort to pull to standing.  When I hold you up, you lift your feet one by one, as if you're taking steps.

I wonder what's over here?

You still won't drink out of a sippy cup, but you love to share a water with me, drinking out of my straw.

Your camera looks like a fun toy, Mommy

You have developed some really cute new facial expressions.  Even though everyone says you look just like Daddy, those facial expressions are all mine, baby.  You crinkle your nose, and have mastered the "Not Impressed" face.

Funny face
You definitely have an ornery streak.  You know you are not supposed to play with the trash can, power cords or electric sockets (perfectly baby-proofed, mind you), but you love to play with them anyway.  You crawl right towards them, and when you're about 2 feet away, you turn around and give me a big grin.  If I say No, that grin quickly turns into hysterical laughter.

Just relaxin'

You are such a dare devil.  Your favorite thing is to crawl to the edge of anything and look over the edge.  Whether it's the changing table, the cough or Mommy and Daddy's bed, you are always convinced the grass is greener over the edge.  You have come close to falling many times, and have actually fallen once or twice, but it doesn't scare you.

Over the edge

You have developed a new found hatred of laying on your back.  When we try to change your diaper or change your clothes, naturally we try to lay you on your back.  You hate it.  You cry immediately, try to roll over or sit up, or get away in any way possible.

How many more, Mama?
And finally, my favorite: you seem to understand that I am Mama, and have said Mama several times in the last couple of weeks.

Serious face

We love you so much!


Mommy and Daddy
