series: 10 months

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

oh my word, my little man is 10 months old!! 10 months old - i just can't believe it! (and i think i say this every month).

this little dude started (on sunday) to say 'dad'.  we thought it was a once of or by accident when he started on sunday but he keeps on saying it now, especially when he is looking for his dad or 'talking' to him.
he is also such a busy little boy and standing up against everything and walking up against the sofa.
he still loves his food especially finger foods at the moment.  one of his favourite snacks is droewors (south african dried sausage) and if he could he would eat this every day.
he loves the children and the attention at church.
he has two bottom teeth now.  he is still drooling a lot - so i think the top ones aren't to far off.
he still loves the outside - so hopefully we will get a great summer this year.
he went with his daddy to a park the other day - and he loved the swings!
he is also going to a music playgroup every week.  for the 30 mins class period - he never stops smiling, that's how much he loves it.
i think he misses the family in south africa - since he can't get enough of the little photo album i made him with photos of the family.
sleeping - let's just say that he has his good days and his bad days.
he loves his turtle playing pool - which has plastic balls in them at the moment.  he climbs in there hundreds of times during the day.  he throughs all the balls out of the pool and then crawls after them.  we are finding balls everywhere.
he loves copying his dad - if his dad lies on the carpet - riley will do the same.  he also copies noises that we make.

oh man, i just love this little man.  i love:  his personality, his friendliness, his big blue eyes, his curiosity, that he is such a charmer, that he makes friends very easily, his mischievous little grin when he knows that he is doing something naughty, his ability to just accept and go with everything his mom and dad drags him to and that he is such a happy and content baby!
