10 Months

I can not believe Cain is now in the double digits!! Cain turned 10 months old today. It’s seriously so hard to believe! This has honestly been the best 10 months of our lives.

What is Cain doing at 10 months?

-The most important milestone that has happened this month….Cain can now say MOMMA!!! We are working hard to get him to say Daddy but when I say Dada to him he says Momma. I think I’ve heard a Dada a time or two though.
-At Cain’s last weight check he weighed 19lbs 12oz.
-Cain is now drinking approximately 28oz. of formula each day.
-We have finally let Cain try a few bites of table food (bananas, sweet potatoes and dressing) Oh and we gave him a tiny bite of a donut this morning for his 10 month birthday. I think he really enjoyed it.
-On October 31st Cain rolled from his back to his stomach for the first time. It was a very exciting moment for us! He is now a rolling machine and can roll to get to his toys.
-He is a wiggle worm. I miss our snuggle time but it thrills me that he is so mobile now.
-He just learned how to wave bye-bye and seems to enjoy waving his hands at each other.
-Cain can now stand with our support.
-He has been trying to hold his on bottle. He can hold it very well but still needs a little bit of my assistance when trying to drink it.
-On Thanksgiving Day Cain learned how to low belly crawl (I think that is what it is called). He will lie on his stomach and use his arms and feet and work SO HARD to push his way very slowly to a toy in front of him. His strength and willpower amazes us everyday.
-We also watched Cain try to pull up on a toy on Thanksgiving Day. Just watching him try to do this made us so happy.
-Cain is such a happy easy going baby. He rarely cries and he always seems very content. I am very thankful for his laid back personality. I’ve been told before that heart babies seem to have easy going laid back personalities and so far this seems to be very true.

As I mentioned Cain is a wiggle worm and rarely stays still (unless he's in his carseat). It was very hard to get a picture of him this month since he kept rolling around in the chair. This is what most of our pictures looked like....

My baby is getting to be such a big boy!
