10 months {a few days late}

Happy 10 months, sweet Thomas!  We love you so much!

Dear Thomas, 

This month the word for you is MOVE with DETERMINATION as a close second.  You are constantly on the move and have the determination like I've never seen.  I feel as if you have gone from a baby to a little boy this month, wanting so badly to be up on two feet at all times.   You even took your first step this month, although you are still pretty unsteady on your own.

Your determination is fascinating and funny.  You think that if you stretch just enough you can reach the door knobs that are several inches away from your fingers or the fan pulley as you walk by in my arms.   You are extremely curious and when you want something, you are relentless at getting it!  

You said your first real word just yesterday- Mama.  You've been making the mmmmm sound for quite some time and finally added the a.  Although you really have no idea that it's a word, it sounds perfect to me!  I love hearing you say ma ma ma ma while you're playing.  

You just cut your top central incisors within the last week, making your teeth count four!  And you love to use them to bite everything- even fingers!  You've also decided this month that your tummy is more comfortable for sleeping-- you sleep with your bottom in the air and your arms underneath you.   It's absolutely adorable. 

You've become a more picky eater, wanting to eat what you can pick up on your own and being far less interested in what we have on the spoon.  It's made feeding you a bit tricky, but we are working on it:).   Thankfully, you are eating a bit more of our table food.   You are also very interested in anything we are eating and will go after it to try a taste.  

There are so many more things I could say!  You, little one, are such a blessing from the Lord to your daddy and I.  We pray that you grow up to love Jesus and follow him in all of your ways!

Can't wait to see what happens this month!  I love you!
