Grayson Patrick you are 10 months old!
It is amazing how fast time flies (I know, I say it every month but it is so true). You are the COOLEST kid in the entire world. I am so incredibly in love with you. I was hoping that as you got older, leaving you at daycare for the day would get easier. It hasn't one bit. If anything, I just miss you even more now that you are so fun, loving and interactive. I continue to day dream about going part time just so that I can spend every single second with you. Not a lot gets done after work. Our house isn't as clean as it used to be. Meals are no longer planned out well. We don't hang out with friends as much. But, I take advantage of every single second with you and I love every minute of our time together.
You didn't visit the doctor this month, so I'm not sure of exact measurements, but I would guess that you weigh about 18 ½ pounds right now and you are about 28 inches long. You continue to wear size 3 diapers and you fit into clothes that range between 6-12 months.
We went back to school recently, which meant that I have to be at work at a set time every morning again. As a result, we finally had to do a bit of crying it out (lol, despite what I said last month) because you were waking up at least 1-2 times per night. You picked it up beautifully and starting sleeping through the night the very first night. It was a miracle and I kind of kicked myself after the fact for not doing it sooner.
I just love 10 month old Grayson, because 10 month old Grayson is SO cuddly. You will crawl or cruise over to me and lay your little head on my shoulder. It really is the sweetest thing. You do not stay still for long, but it is fun to see you initiate the cuddles. Speaking of sitting still, you don't. You love cruising around the furniture and you have taken to cruises up and down the pool ledge at our community pool.
Some other new accomplishments this month include the ability to point! The other day you looked up at the sky as a plane passed by. I said Grayson, that's a plane. P, P, P, plane. You pointed right at that plane and said p, p, p. It was incredible. You've also starting talking a lot more and making even more sounds. You can say the m, b, l, p, d, g and n sound pretty regularly. You said Mama for the first time on my birthday (!) and a few weeks later you said bye bye for the first time. You haven't repeated them much since, but we heard them as clear as day.
You have another tooth! You now have two on the top and two on the bottom. Some of your favorite things to do this month including playing with balls and reading books. You have learned how to play catch you and actually rev your little arm up before you throw the ball to us. It is the CUTEST thing that we have ever seen. Our daycare lady even taped it because she thought you looked so cute doing it.
My sweet little Grayson! Time is going way too fast, but I feel blessed that I've gotten to love, learn about you and mother you for the last 10 months. My life is blessed because you are in it.
I love you I love you I love you!
