Peter: 10 Months...

Surprise, surprise...Peter turned 10 months old 11 days ago, and I am just posting this.  Blogger-of-the-Year anyone??
Peter continues to love life.  He's about as laid back as they come and loves his Momma.  We have days when he either screams or I hold him (sweet, but time-consuming), and there are times when I leave the room causing an eruption of tears, but it's definitely not every day and it's not to say he doesn't love other people!  He does...just sometimes gets a little clingy.
He and Carter and are playing more and more, and it seems Carter is getting more and more frustrated as Peter learns to "help" with Carter's Lego projects or book reading.  They really do have a lot of fun together, whether playing in the yard, wrestling, playing their version of chase and hide-and-seek, or just hanging out...and I've loved watching that.
    Here are some stats for the month:

Weighs maybe 24 lbs

Is between 29 and 30 inches long 

Wears mostly 18 month clothing

Drinks about 3 bottles a day (of formula with added rice). Totaling about 24 oz. of milk and maybe 6 oz. of diluted juice here and there.

Eats basically whatever we are eating.  He doesn't seem to have any taste or texture issues, and that makes things incredibly easy!

Is still on Zantac and is still spitting up (maybe I should omit this line and just make it a big deal when he no longer has to take it)!

Takes 2 good naps a day, ranging from 1 hour to 3.5 hours. Rarely does he have a third nap anymore.  He goes down for the night around 6:30 and still typically wakes a little before six.  He and Carter share a room at night now, so it seems they take 30 minutes or so to wind down because of all of the giggling :)

He is pulling up on everything and crawling quickly wherever he wants to go.  He is a climber!

He has six teeth - four on top and two on bottom.

He waves hi and bye to a select group, tries to say hi and bye and says mamamama and dadadada on occasion.

He gets his feelings hurt at times and will let you know, but he is quite a little toughie with Carter's rough play.  He got sick again this month but seems to be back to normal now.  Here's hoping we stay sick-free this month!

Peter is such a sweet part of our family and we continue to thank God for our little blessing!
