10 Months Old

(This post is running a bit behind! Where did the month go?)

Hey Israel! You're 10 Months Old!
What are you up to these days?

(So much for the whole sign idea...he wouldn't leave it alone for anything!)

You are a growing boy! You weigh 19.6 pounds! And to think...the doctors used to be worried about your weight!

You are wearing a size 3 diaper and size 9-12 month clothes!

You have switched over to only taking two naps a day...but thankfully they are still about 2 hours.

You have been to Shriners and Doernbechers so many time now that I have lost count!

You got casted and fitted for your first pair of prosthetic legs and feet!

You experienced your first real sickness...a double ear infection plus sinus infection!

You are finally deciding that eating baby food isn't such a bad idea after all :-) still don't seem to miss it if we forget to give it to you.

Bottles are your cups please! :-)

You aren't so into your binkie anymore...occasionally you will take it, but for the most part you could go without.

You unfortunately still don't really eat any solid foods because you are unable to with your tongue issue.

You were supposed to have your first surgery, but due to insurance hassles it has been postponed.

You experienced your first Christmas and New Year and loved it all!

You love toys that make noise and light up.

You love the littlest details on tags and strings and necklaces.

You are still the happiest baby I have ever known. You smile and laugh and are content to do almost anything.

You are amazing and precious and a gift from God! I couldn't imagine my life without you in it! You make me a better Mom, wife and friend. Thank you for being you...and blessing me more then you will ever know!
