Jack – 10 months!

It’s hard to believe our little Jack is 10 months old already!! He’s been changing daily. It’s crazy to watch the things he learns and discovers daily.

He has started clapping which is totally adorable. Everytime I say ‘yay’ he claps. haha! {Pavlov’s dog anyone?!} He is a crawling machine!!! He is all over the place. He’s a speed crawler and can catch up with me, even when I don’t want him too! haha. He’s been crawling for over a month now, so I supposed it’s okay he’s all over the place 😉

Speaking of being all over the place, he is into everything!! Literally, a clean house? what is that?! Everywhere I turn he is into cupboards taking everything out and scattering it all over the house. It wouldn’t be a day if there weren’t plastic cups, plates, pantry items, paper towel rolls, etc, all over the house! Thankfully, when we moved, I knew to put anything and everything that wasn’t breakable on the lower shelves.

The entire house is baby proofed, except we still need to put locks on the few bathroom cupboards that are within his reach. We’ve even anchored all the tall furniture to the walls. With Preston we never had to worry about that because he never tried to climb anything! Jack pulls himself up on anything and everything!! He also likes to pull drawers out and he’s super strong! He even pushed down our baby gate. We are going to have to screw it to the wall soon enough!

Jack loves Preston. He could follow him around and play with him all day. He lets Preston feed him and give him bottles! It is so sweet the bond that they have already.

At night Jack has started sleeping through the night again! Yay! He sleeps from 6:30pm – 5:30 am every night. He still likes nursing in the morning and a couple times throughout the day, but he has started to self wean a bit. {{yes, still making milk while pregnant! ❤ our bodies are amazing!}} He much prefers drinking out of a bottle these days. It’s nice for the freedom, but it’s a little bittersweet. Preston was no where near done nursing at 10 months.

Jack has turned into a bottomless pit when it comes to eating! He loves eating. He is such a good eater too. He will eat anything we serve him. It’s so nice, Preston was the same way when he was young. Preston still has a very broad palate! Thanks to Chad, he eats anything and everything healthful and unique, so the boys get a lot of exposure at a young age.

Last month was a little rough for Jack in that he was teething and wanted to be held and carried around all over the place!! Within the last week or 2 he has started becoming more independent! For example, its noon and he has been playing with Preston since he (Preston) woke up this morning at 7:15am. Well, besides stopping to eat every once in awhile, and taking an hour long nap.

Napping had been going well for Jack for a few weeks. He was taking anywhere from a 1 -3 hour nap in the mornings around 9am. Afternoon naps were a little more hit or miss. Some days he would take one and some days he won’t. They were never longer than an hour either. Hence why he was ready to pass out by 6:30pm! However, within the last week Jack has gone down to one nap a day! He will go down around noon and sleep for an hour. Sometimes longer, but not by much!! So he is ready for bed by 6pm now. The last few nights he’s been asleep by 6pm. He still sleeps well though. He will sleep until about 5:30 or 6 am. I would love to have him go to bed later *hoping* he would sleep in a little later, but I must admit, I love having the boys in bed so early! Both boys are in bed by 7pm. Having our evenings free is so nice, yes, it’s a rush around with dinner and bedtime routine, but with Chad and I tag teaming the boys, it’s pretty painless. That gives us the evenings to clean, chat, or watch an ‘adult’ show, aka anything scarier than Toy Story. haha.

He is so close to walking!! I bet he will be walking within the week!! He has taken a few steps. He likes to push around a kitchen chair to walk or he will push his little red wagon.

He also celebrated his first Halloween yesterday!! I’ll have to do a post about it, but here is a little sneak peek of our Panda Bear!!

^^oh yeah! he has been chewing on his upper lip. I think he’s cutting his top teeth right now. Poor guy!!

He love looking down vents and feeling the heat blow up at him!! It’s too cute!!

Both of the boys have been sick for about a week now! It has been horrible!! I’m finally experiencing my first sickness that has consumed both of my boys! It’s hard because they are both tired and cranky and want to be snuggled all the time. They have stuffy noses, deep coughs, and sore throats! Poor buddies!! I’m hoping they will get over it soon enough!! I’ve been cleaning all morning.

Below is Jack and Preston at 10 months!!
