Happy Ten Months!

The Reid Report:

  • I have four teeth (and they're not little slivers any more...they're growing).
  • In waterbabies swim class I can stay under water for 8 seconds!
  • Mom & dad have given me even more foods to feast on since last month: pineapple, watermelon, corn, cinnamon, havarti cheese, string mozzarella cheese, lima beans, bananas, egg whites, bread, cantaloupe, hamburger meat. Even though I still love my bottle, I'm getting less formula and more solids {big boy food}.  In fact, mom says this is the last month that she'll document my new foods because soon I'll be eating anything and everything you put in front of me!
  • I can walk behind my toy walker or with assistance from mom and dad. Watch out won't be long now!
  • I added "dadada" to my vocabulary and ever since I added it, it's ALL I ever want to say {still making mom wait patiently for my first "mama"}.
  • I started waving bye bye backwards & now I'll do it in the correct direction occasionally {usually once everyone stops looking}.
  • I'm getting better at clapping, but I'll still only do it when I'm in the right mood.
  • I've made a few attempts at real crawling but I definitely still prefer the army crawl 99% of the time.
  • I still pull up on everything but my favorite thing to do as soon as I pull up to standing is to let go with one hand and turn to the side to check out the scene.  Then oftentimes whether I'm stable or not {mostly not}, I like to let go with the other hand as well.  Mom says that's the reason we've added another "Incident Report" to my school file.
  • Oh and I almost forgot...I weigh 22 lbs!  :)

 "I don't think that's going to be a good angle for me, mom."
 "This is a much more flattering angle!"

 This was the only shot I could get with the sunglasses on.  And he's not doing "jazz hands."  He was en route to taking the glasses off just as soon as I put them on.
But he does like to hold on to them while he plays
 The swing is still his fave at the playground
Messy Hair Syndrome
Such a big boy!
