Ten Months!

Wyatt is ten months old!




Derek helped me take the pictures this time, and Wyatt was just cracking up!  That’s why he’s looking off to the side in all of these!

This month he’s been practicing his waving more.  His first “wave” was at me while Derek was holding him on 11/13/11, and he’s been getting gradually better at it since.  He still doesn’t do it on request, but when he feels like it he’ll reach his hand up in a little wave or “fist bump”.  It’s so cute. 


This is an example of him practicing waving – we were attempting to take a picture and he decided to do his reach/wave for Derek.    Ignore the fact that I was not ready for the picture.

He’s also working on clapping (started around 12/3/11) – he’ll touch his hands together in a clap, but without making any noise – then he’ll look at me to see if I noticed and look so proud of himself.


He’ll also copy me when I clap sometimes, and he copies us when we laugh too, even though he doesn’t know what we’re laughing about. 

He’s getting so playful.  The other day I gave him a bookmark to look at, and he held it at arm’s length looking at it, and then he lifted it a bit and grinned at me from underneath it – I could tell he was so proud of himself for being so tricky, and I think it was the first time he initiated '”peek-a-boo”!  Actually, on the day of his ten-month birthday, he was kind of playing peek-a-boo with me right before we put him to bed – he kept hiding his face, and then looking up at me again to wait for the "peek-a-boo/there-he-is” part.  It was cute!

He is getting so fast at his army crawling.  He still gets up on his hands and knees and rocks back and forth, but when he wants to move he drops to his belly and army crawls.  He knows how to open doors so he can crawl through.


This month he’s been pulling himself up on his knees to play with things (around 12/7/11).  We lowered his crib this month because we knew it was coming!   He loves our dogs and will try to follow them around the house, but he can’t quite keep up with them.


He’s getting so big too – he’s in twelve month pants (although they are still baggy around the waist), but he fits in shirts that are anywhere from 6-12 months in size.  He’s just long and skinny.

We started pureed meats recently, and at first he hated it – and I don’t blame him, because we started with ham and gravy and it smelled awful.  He made the funniest face when we gave it to him.  The next time we tried chicken and apples, and he liked that one much better!

He still says “mama” and “dada”, but I’m waiting for the moment that I really know he’s talking to me or Derek when he says it.  He “talks” all the time – he’s a very vocal baby!


He’s sleeping a little less at night than he used to (12 hours now), and is taking a morning nap in addition to his afternoon nap instead. I’m okay with this.  Our nighttime routine is to give him a bath if he’s due for one, give him a bottle, and feed him some solids.  Sometime during those three things we’ll read him a Bible story, either from an actual Bible or from his storybook Bible.  Then we pray together as a family.  Once all that is done we’ll take him downstairs, change his diaper, lay him down in his crib, play “Where’s Wyatt” a few times (this is a big hit – it cracks him up), and then we get him settled and turn out the light.  He’s so good at knowing when it’s time to sleep.  His bedtime is somewhere between 7:00 and 8:00 PM right now.

He also got his upper left baby tooth this month, and he’s working on the next one now I think!

This past month Wyatt . .

-Gave his first wave.

-Started having to get bundled up for the cold weather.


-Had his first Thanksgiving.


-Started clapping (even if he doesn’t do it for the noise yet).

-Saw the Christmas tree for the first time!


-Went on his first official Christmas shopping trip!


-Went to his first Christmas parade!


-Attended his first Christmas party (post coming soon).

He still gives us hugs and kisses, and he’s generally the happiest, sweetest baby I know! 



My Sweet Wyatt,

You are growing so much, and I kept getting comments this month on how you are starting to look more “grown-up”.  You are losing a bit of your baby-ness.  But at the same time you still love to be held and you love to cuddle with me, and you still have the sweetest little baby laugh.  I’m cherishing every bit of this stage – every bit of the baby that you still are, and every bit of the little boy that you are turning into.  You are my little Treasure, Wyatt-Boy, and I love you so much!

Adorable baby boy that you have! I hope all is well in your household this merry season. I got so far behind in reading the blogs I enjoy following, my graduate studies kept my attention most of the time! But I'm trying to catch up some, now! By the way, how did you like "Girl in the Gatehouse" that you won in my book giveaway on my blog? :) I never heard what you thought of it! Merry Christmas!
