10 months

Do you recognize this baby?

It seems that in a short 9 months (that was his one month picture), he has gone from that to this.....

I can't get over how much he is starting to look less like a baby and more like a little boy! He is so much fun and still such a sweet little guy. That is the #1 comment we get..."Is he always this good?". Fortunately, he usually is. Here is what he is up to:

Size 4 diapers, size 9 & 12 month clothes, size 4 shoes

5 1/2 oz. during the day and 7oz. at bed time.

Loves to stand up and walk around. You have to hold his hands but he LOVES it.

He tries to pull up but can only get to his knees so far.

Food he’s tried:
Mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cheese, noodles, yogurt, olives, baked beans, scalloped potatoes, oranges (loved them), that's all I can think of right now.
I did give him a new baby food, one of the Gerber 3rd's foods...brocolli and carrots with cheese and he gagged a lot. 

Nicknames: daddy calls him punkin and chunk, I call him boo-boo a lot and nuggle boy when he snuggles with me, Grammy & Ian call him Miller Moo, Gamma calls him Mi-wer (replace the l's with a w),  Gampa calls him Bubbas (with an 's'), Aunt Whitney calls him Mi-wee (like Mil-wee, but without the 'l'), 

Takes 3 naps a day

Takes baths in the big bath tub, no more duck

Likes to eat baby Mum-Mum crackers..they are messy! He's finally starting to eat puffs too, but he likes you to feed them to him.

Loves to drink out of his sippy cup. He can down some juice!

Loves Tucker (our chocolate lab). You can ask..where’s Tucker? And he looks at the door. He squeals when we take him outside to see him. He gets mad when we come back in.

Now army crawling all over the place.

When we go out to check the mail he ‘helps’ me carry it to the house. He holds on to it while we walk.

No matter how quiet he is somewhere, as soon as we get in the car he gets LOUD. He loves to yell until he has to take a breath. (happy sounds)

 He claps now.

Waves bye-bye a lot...gets his whole arm into it. 

He also acts shy now sometimes in front of people. He will smile and then turn and bury his head into us. 

Favorite toys: Animal sounds barn from his Papa & Grandma ShirRon, toolbox from his Great Aunt & Uncle Mark & Marsha, ball popper (NOISY) from his mama & daddy.
