10 Months!

Can you say growth spurt?  WOW!!  We put Logan on the scale yesterday and couldn't believe it.  The little tank has packed on a pound and 10 oz in a month!!  He only gained 6 oz from 8 to 9 months, but 26 oz the next month  I'm not sure how, but the only thing I can figure is he didn't gain much when he was sick last month, and then packed it on once he felt better.  We weighed him twice yesterday and it was 23 1/2 lbs both times.  He also grew about 3/4 of an inch.  He's just a little growing machine!

Granddaddy helped me take his 10 month pictures and I have to say, I think Granddaddy had a pretty good time trying to get Logan to look at the camera and smile for me.  Thanks Granddaddy!

Weight: 23 lbs. 8 oz.
Length: 29 inches

Eating:  We have been baby food free for about 2 or 3 weeks.  Logan eats all table food, and we have still yet to find something he does not like.  Some of his favorite things are Potato soup, yogurt, perogies, turkey meatballs, pasta with carrots and peas, oatmeal, grilled cheese, pears, bananas and of course Cheerios and Goldfish.  He is like his Mama, he loves water, especially when it is really cold. 
He is still nursing three times a day and we recently went from two 4 oz bottles while I am at work to one 5 or 6 oz bottle around lunch time.  I was a little concerned about cutting out the morning bottle, but after weighting him yesterday, it's clear that he is fine without it.  He is doing so well with his water from a sippy, I may see if he is ready to switch his noon bottle to a sippy, so we can get a head start on the transition.
Logan's two bottom teeth are about 1/2 way through and his top right tooth is about to make it's debut! 

Wearing:  I think we are just about ready to fully switch to size 4 diapers.  He has been wearing size 4 at night and as soon as we use up all of our size 3, we'll move to the 4's during the day. 
He is wearing all 12 month clothes and we had to move to 18 month for the pajamas with the feet because his feet are so big!

Sleeping:   Sleeping depends on the day.  We have a week when he will sleep through the night and then we have other weeks when he wakes up one or two times a night.  I really think it's my fault because when it's 2:00am and I am am so tired I am running into walls the last thing I want to do is stay up listening to him to try cry himself back to sleep.  So there have been several times when I have brought him back to the bed to nurse.  Last night he slept until 4, so in my book that was an improvement.  I know I am just going to have to have a few days of letting him cry to get back on track with the sleeping through the night.  :( 

Social Skills/Talking:  Logan is trying pretty hard to wave bye bye.  He studies your hand when you wave and you can see his little fingers trying to go in and out.  He lights up when he sees someone he knows walk into a room.  One of the best moments of my day, is walking into the house from work and having him squeal and smile, and hurry over to me. 
So the word Mama has pretty much left Logan's vocabulary since the discovery of Dada.  We have lots of babas, millions of Dadas and several other sounds, but I think there has only been a handful of Mamas.  :(  Oh well, he has to Mama again sooner or later, right!

Motor Skills:  Logan is all over the place!  He is speed crawling when playing "I'm gonna get you!", and cruising along every piece of furniture we have.  He can pull himself up to a standing position and sit himself down with great care.  He loves to walk through the living room and kitchen using the push toys and has tried to stand without holding on a few times. 
He can give a high 5, and loves to clap his hands. He has also started to dance a little by sitting on his knees and bouncing his butt up and down. It's pretty cute!

What a precious little man!
See my teeth, Mommy? 
It's so cute to see him clap at himself
Granddaddy's already getting Logan ready for hunting season!
