Jude, Ten Months

Jude is 10 months old!

Approx. 19 lb. Slowly but surely gaining!

No idea on this one. Last we checked (a month ago) he was 30 inches.

^^Jude dropped his cheerio.

^^Cheerio returned. All is right in the world again.

This boy has become quite the awesome sleeper, praise GOD!

He has his two naps down to a science. Down for nap #1 pretty much exactly 3 hours after he wakes up in the morning. Down for nap #2 pretty much exactly 3 hours after he wakes up from nap #1. Bedtime around 8pm. Sleeps 'til about 6am - 7am. The past few days he's been waking around 4am or 5am, so I feed him and he goes right back to sleep. I think teething pain is the culprit. But other than that, we're good in the sleep department. :) :) :)

Firsts this month
-"All Jude wants for Christmas is his two front teeth . . . " And now he has them! They came through about a week ago and they are cute (and sharp) as ever!
-Stands without holding on to anything for a few seconds.
-Signs "all done" and "water."
-Says "all done" if we say it to him first.
-Gives super slobbery kisses when I ask.
-Waving for real this time.
-Drinks from a straw.
-Eats waaaay more solid food now. He's finally mastered the chew and swallow business.
-Dances to music. The most adorable booty bounce you ever did see.
-Babbles like he's having a conversation with us.
-First plane ride!

^^Baby's first Thanksgiving!

^^No, big bro, I am NOT interested in you holding me. Kthanx.

Other things to note
-New favorite foods include tempeh, cheerios, chia seed pudding, oranges, and cantaloupe. 

-He's thankfully not really in "put EVERYTHING in mouth" mode anymore, but he still does like a good floor food find. 

-Still obsessed with ALL appliances. Dishwasher, fridge, dryer, lamps . . . We're seriously considering a dishwasher-themed 1st birthday party. Wanna brainstorm with me? ;)

-Jude is finally warming up to the idea of having books read to him. Are we going to have another bookworm in the fam?

-Officially needs his first haircut. Look at those long locks! We were trying to hold off 'til his birthday, but I think we're nearing mullet status. I'll report back on whether we go through with it next month.

-This boy still love to nurse. We're nursing about 6 times a day and I think he still gets most of his calories from breastmilk. Hoping to see that flip this next month: more solid foods, less breastmilk. I love nursing my Jude baby, but I'm also excited to see him explore food more!

-Juji had big travels this past month! We went to Rhode Island for my little brother's wedding during the first week of November. It was such a whirlwind wonderful trip! The boys did great with the traveling, for the most part, and it was such a joy to introduce Jude to my 3 siblings! And extended family too! The rest of the pictures from here on out are from my brother's wedding, all taken by my older brother @ Matt Ferrara Photography. <3

^^Dance floor snoozing.

Happy 10 months, Jude the Dude!
