Happy Ten Months, Allen! {double digits!}

We have hit the double digits! I can not believe that he is ten months already.. Where has the time gone?

In just two short months, I will have a one year old.. *sigh*

I know I say this every month, but it seems like just yesterday we were going into the hospital for my induction. He is growing so fast and learning so much. He hardly ever stops moving and loves to explore anything and everything.

Allen currently weighs  21lbs  8oz and is  30 1/4in long. He is growing like a weed! He is in 12mo clothes and some 18mo tops. He is in size 3 huggies and will probably be there for at least 3 more months. He is an amazing walker and loves to have his freedom. He also plays great by himself with a few toys! Allen is a great napper, when the kids are at school or quiet. He will sleep on average 1 1/2 hours each nap. He usually takes two naps, one in the morning and one in the late afternoon. Night time is a different story. He still wakes up 1-2 times a night for a few ounces and then he is back out. We are trying to break the night feedings, but its pretty hard. He will scream until we either give in or he wakes the other two up.. So we just deal with it..

Allen eats three meals a day plus snacks throughout the day. His favorite foods are all veggies, all fruits, noodles, meat, eggs and my french toast.. He basically eats whatever we eat, just really cut up.. lol He will eat the Gerber Graduates a couple times a week too. His favorite snacks are mum mum's, gold fish, cheerios & puffs. He would eat the yogurt melts, but we noticed that he would have horrible gas. So we are holding off on those for a little bit. He usually has four 8oz bottles during the day and juice or water in sippy cups. He did have his first sucker and peanut butter cup yesterday, courtesy of DJ and Reagan.. He screamed when I took it all away!

- Allen loves to wave at anyone who looks at him, its too funny. He is such a happy little guy! One day Allen was signing "all done" and Dave thought he was just waving at him... hahahaha I laughed so hard!

- Allen now has six teeth! Four on the bottom and two on top. He is getting fussy so I think he might have more teeth coming in.

- He doesn't really crawl anymore. If he is not walking, he is running.. {no joke} He sees Reagan and DJ running around, so he tries to do it too. He is also trying to master jumping in place.. hahaha

- He loves to follow you around and hates to be by himself in a room. He will freak out if he doesn't see myself, the kids or Dave in the same room, or at least in eye sight..

- Whenever he sees the kids doing something funny, he will laugh hysterically. He even laughs at funny parts in cartoons.. This kid is too funny!

- Allen loves to dance and play with his siblings. I will put music on and he will get down! It is by far the cutest thing ever! He can really hold his own when he is playing too. All three will play in the room for hours together :) I love it!

- His favorite toys right now are his blocks, sensory balls, books and his new music table thingy. Oh I cant forget he likes to use Dave and myself as jungle gyms..

- Allen is such a chatterbox1 He will be in his seat in the car and just talking away. His favorite words are Mama, Dada, Papa, Baba, No No, Nun Nun {nummies} and Ball.. When he is tired, its always mamama mamama... ;)

Happy Ten Months, Love Bug!!!
