Kallen Gentry, you're 10 months old as of Nov. 3rd. Less than 8 weeks and we'll be celebrating your 1st birthday. WHAT the WHAT?!? Too fast son, toooooo fast. But its been the best 10 months. You are absolutely perfect. You're so cute, so sweet and so much fun. I couldn't have asked for a better baby boy. Seriously.
You're walking like a pro. You look like a little T-Rex with your arms. Lol. They're always up like baby dinosaur arms helping you keep your balance. Now that you've gotten walking down you don't crawl at all anymore. So I guess I'll have to really start shopping for shoes! I have probably about 8 pairs of shoes 0 to size 4 that you couldn't ever fit. You have the thickest feet! So I'm on the hunt for very wide shoes for your Flintstone feet.
You have 6 teeth and I can see 2 more about to break through. You haven't really had too much of an issue with teething. Don't get me wrong, I know when somethings up, but it hasn't really affected your sleep or attitude. Speaking of sleeping...you take 2 little cat naps, 1 in the morning and 1 in the evening. Lately you've been taking your evening nap in your jumper. I put you in when we eat dinner and you jump yourself to sleep :) You also take a longer nap in the middle of the day with Raya. Here's the thing though, you will NOT sleep in your crib. Uh!!! Seriously, you can be knocked out sound asleep and I put you in your crib and you stay asleep for about 10 seconds and then wake up. If I let you sleep in my bed you stay asleep for a long time but you're at the age that when you wake up you almost immediately try to crawl out of the bed and in a 2 story house that means I have to SPRINT to my room to get you before you crawl head first outta the bed. So stressful. I feel like Raya was around 1 when she learned how to let herself down from our bed, so hopefully you'll be learning that soon :) You LOVE to sleep cuddle up with me or Gentry. You could sleep in our arms all day everyday. You're such a cuddle bug!
You've been showing more and more of your personality. You play more and more. The other day you started a game of peekaboo with me. Here's the video. It was so cute!
You've also been showing a temper! You get mad pretty instantly and "yell" at me. Right now its pretty cute. I know it'll be frustrating at some point, but currently it makes me giggle. And no, I'm not laughing at you! You've started "yelling" at Raya when she takes a toy you have. And when you're out of food and still hungry you make sure I know you want more.
You love to go to the park and play in the sand. You also love to swing. Pretty sure yesterday you put 327 things in your mouth that you found in the sand box so you might be spending more time strapped into the swing ;)
We have to be diligent about closing the gate to the stairs. You LOVE to climb the stairs. You stand at the bottom and just stare up to the top. If we leave the gate open you always make a beeline for the stairs and can usually make it up 3 or 4 before I get to you.
Its so much fun watching you grow. I love spending my days with you. I really couldn't ask for a better way to spend my time. I'm so lucky to have such an amazing baby. Keep up the cuteness :)
I love you!!!
