Owen is ten months old!

I'm 10 months old!

 At ten months old, Owen was (based on our scale at home):
Weight:  20 pounds,  12.8 ounces, between the 25th and 50th percentile
Length: 28.5 inches long, 50th percentile

     He didn’t have an official doctor’s appointment this month so all measurements were done by us at home.

Owen has had several new foods this month. Some of his favorites are carrots (particularly if mixed with pears). He also still likes yogurt quite a bit and ate a ton of Greek yogurt this month. He refuses to eat any green vegetables that I make for him so we’ve been supplementing his food with store-bought veggie mixes. He particularly likes Happy Baby’s green bean pear pea and spinach mango pear and sweet potato apple carrot cinnamon. He does not liked pureed turkey. Though really, if you could see what pureed turkey looks like, you wouldn't blame him. He still loves Puffs and Cheerios and will now try to stuff as many as he can into his month.

Owen sleeps through the night the majority of the time. He will go down for the night around 7 p.m. and wakes up sometime between 7 and 8 a.m. He takes two naps during the day, the first anytime between 10 and 11 a.m. and the second around 3 p.m. He is still swaddled, but breaks out of the swaddle as he is falling to sleep. We let him cry himself to sleep most of the time and he now only cries for a very little amount of time before falling asleep. He is very independent right now and does not want to be rocked to sleep. He cries even harder when we try to rock him to sleep than if we just leave him in his crib alone.  

Other Things I Want to Remember:
Owen is wearing size 9 months, size 12 months, and size 6-12 months clothing. He is in size 3 diapers and wears size 3 shoes.
Owen pulled up on a box in December and now will pull up on anything and everything. He will also grab onto our pants and use them to pull himself up if he wants to be picked up. Owen can pull himself to standing really easily now so once he is awake in the mornings, he will pull himself to standing in his crib and cry until I come get him. Gone are the days when he would lay in his crib playing for a few minutes first. Sometimes I hear him in there banging his pacifier against the crib bars or playing with his Leapfrog Scout talking dog. 

Owen is trying hard to talk. He babbles a lot, but no real words yet. Also, when we were first back from Georgia in January and he was feeling a little starved for attention, he would yell at the top of his lungs to get my attention. It was pretty funny. Now he has taken to biting me if he wants my attention.We are trying to discourage this. 

Owen loves to play with all sorts of things around the house, especially our coasters, books, DVDs and video games, and Tupperware. He makes his round of the house pulling everything off shelves and out of cabinets. As far as toys go, he loves his Poppity Pop Dino, his musical train, and his activity table. He also started using his walker toy just a few days before he turned 10 months old and enjoys pushing it from one side of the main room to the other. He is starting to be able to steer it a little better too.

Owen is crawling up a storm and is never still for very long. He started cruising this month and loves to walk around the coffee table and down the length of the couch. 

We have been trying to teach him the sign for "more" this month, but he hasn't quite gotten it. He has learned to put both arms up in the air for "touchdown" and is starting to learn what "kiss kiss" means. There is nothing like a sloppy baby kiss.

Here are some pictures from his 10 month photo shoot. Once again, it is nearly impossible to get photos of him sitting still. So you take what you can get. Which for this month meant pictures of a certain baby's rear end. 

Gotta be quick! I'm on the go!
You again?
Enough with the photos!
Owen's obsession. The dishwasher. He will come crawling as fast as he can whenever he hears us open it up.
Baby toes.
