10 Months Old

My baby is 10 months old! He is so full of energy and loves exploring. He is pretty much an energizer bunny, just go, go, go all the time. He loves clapping and playing everything like a drum. It makes meal time nice and messy!

(The high pitched squeal)
At this age, Kai was laid back and observant. Koen is easy going and VERY hands on. He doesn't want to just watch something, he needs to MOVE. He needs to go to everything, touch it, manipulate it. When he sees something exciting, he just starts clapping away. Sometimes when he's crying, he'll clap too:)

He loves `Blue', his blankie/doggy. He'll sit in his crib for half an hour just sucking on Blue's ear. As soon as he's sure I'll pick him up, then he will release `Blue'. It is def. similar to Kai's relationship with Bubi and I think we need to find another `Blue'!

He is still working on his first teeth and just sucks on his hand a lot, or just makes sucking motions. He has started sticking his tongue out now and doesn't appear as tongue tied. He has started to climb up on things and can squat to pick up a toy (while not holding on to anything!).
He now sleeps from 6:30pm to 7:30am due to the time change.

He was H1N1 vaccinated today and just cried for a a few seconds. My brave boy. He is also 22 lbs but not very tall. He is so easily consoled, just pick him up and he's a happy little boy.
We are so thankful for our little guy. He has brought us so much joy and happiness. He makes us smile inside and out. Love you bubba!
