Ellis: Ten Months Old

Ellis James, Baby Update - Ten Months | My Darling Days

I truly feel like you are missing out, if you never get to hang out with Ellis.  He is such a joy to be around.  His little personality is developing rapidly & he is becoming his own little person.  It is such an honor and privilege to be his mom & I just adore watching him grow (but wish I could keep him little forever)!

He is developing by leaps & bounds... I swear he learns or does something new every day.  Ellis is pointing, waving "hi" and "bye", clapping his hands (albeit selectively), and plays peek-a-boo.  He also is good for about 3-4 rounds of patty cake in a row.  He knows (and loves) his puppy Grace.  He loves looking at the Christmas lights and is very interested in the ornaments on the tree, so we can't take our eyes off of him.  Gone are the days of him playing unaided in the living room while I prepare dinner... it's all hands on deck when he's around.  He is FAST, not walking independently yet, but cruises all around with his learn with me walker.  He pulls himself up on everything, climbs, and has no fear.  He is very into sitting up & trying to escape his crib right now... often times at 1:00 AM.

He has graduated from purees and eats all table food.  He still takes 5 oz of milk every 3 hours, but this momma's supply is dwindling fast, and we've started supplementing with formula.  Plus, he is starting to self-wean & is no longer interested in nursing (I've already cried about it, multiple times, so I just gotta let it go and come to terms with the fact that he's growing up).

Ellis is "on" 100% of the time & is go go go all day long.  He's becoming quite the copy cat -- he wants to do whatever we're doing.  He's curious, determined, and very spirited.  At his 9 month well check, he clocked in at 17 lbs 5 oz and 28 1/2 inches long.  A little peanut, with a big personality :)  Usually Ellis is FULL of facial expressions, but lately he's been giving people the stone face -- zero expression -- until he warms up a bit.

Ellis had a couple of firsts this month, including his first hair cut!  Daddy finally talked me into a teeny-tiny trim around his ears (that's all I would agree to), and now we have his first "curl" tucked away in a memory box.  He also hunted for his first Christmas Tree!

Things I love about Ellis this month:
- The way his tongue comes out when he's really concentrating
- The boy has eye lashes for daysss (I'm jealous!)
- His hearty, infectious giggle
- How ticklish he is
- That time we wore matching outfits (here)
- His sweet, soft "singing" voice

Ellis James, you are the apple of my eye!
