growing up: 10 months

Our little "Fox" is 10 months old today! We love him so much though this has been a rough month. He's been growing some particulary painful teeth, has dealt with a bout of constipation and then the reverse, a week of high temperatures, an Emergency Room visit, a new sleep pattern and lots of tumbles off furniture from his adventures in climbing. Through it all, we love him more and more each day!

19 pounds (40%)
30 inches (97%)

At this point he:
- Says "duh" (duck), "dah" (dog), "dada", "mama" (only when he cries in desperation) and "no no no" (when I take something away from him that he can't have).
- Makes a new funny face where he squints his eyes and purses his lips (we think he's trying a new smile).
- Is learning to sleep independently (sigh - *see "says mama"*).
- Still happy to crawl, walk with the help of one hand and cruise along the furniture to get where he wants.
- Loves to climb on our blue leather chair as a sort of Mt. Everest - he's always very proud of reaching the top and stands there, squawking, until I notice and praise him.

People comment on:
How much he looks like his dad.
The curls that form around his ears.
His big eyes that are oozing with sweetness.
