I'm late in posting this. For good reason...we are on our annual family beach vacation. It's been a wonderful week at the beach, however, a bit bittersweet. The week started off pretty rough because our sweet baby boy wasn't quite feeling himself. With a 102 fever, poopy diapers, and crying throughout the night it didn't quite start out how we envisioned our first family vacation. It took 6 days, but we made a discovery today....Gavin is cutting one of his top eye teeth. Please pray for us as the next eye teeth come in, it's sure to be rough. He is now a much happier baby and we have gotten in our happy family beach time that I have so much longed for. Gavin has been extra, extra, extra clingy to me this week which in turn has made his daddy less than thrilled. I hate to say it, but it is very sweet for your baby to seek you out of a crowded room and demand he hold you. :) I take pride in the fact that he loves me so and wants his mommy all the time. Warms my heart.
At ten months Gavin seems to change every day. He is....... "running" crawling all over the place, extremely curious, pulling up and standing on anything that is stationary, babbling up a storm and at times seems he's days away from saying "dada or mama", sort of blowing kisses, cackeling and laughing up a storm, happiest when he first wakes up, a great great eater, will try almost any food you put in front of him, wants any television remote in his sight, LOVES to drink water from a water bottle or out of regular cup over any sippy cup, loves cheese grits, scrambled eggs, any red-Italian based sauce food...and ADORES hummus. He could eat his weight in hummus. He loves sleeping on his tummy with his knees tucked under him, still couldn't care less about a pacifier, sleeps best with a "milkshake" bottle before bed (mommy's special rice cereal-formula concoction), loves to turn pages on any book or close any open door, if the refrigerator door is open he will make a quick dart across the room to close it. Hopefully these tidbits will give you an insight into our precious boy's life. We adore this little boy and are so blessed to be called mommy and daddy!
Here are some extra special month photos...taken on the beach. :)
