Henry is 10 Months

Henry turned 10 months old on Saturday and I didn't get a chance to blog like I had hoped, so I figured -better late than never. I'm amazed at how different 10 months is from 9 months for us. Henry is doing new things, realizing so much and becoming this spunky, funny little boy more and more everyday.

At 10 months of age, Henry:

Eats with a fork and spoon - even though most of the time the food falls off before it gets to his mouth.
Completely feeds himself. He hates for us to try and feed him, he is just so independent.
Carries a blanket with him every where and will absolutely NOT go to sleep without one.
Says "Mama, Dad (yes, dad...he rarely says 'dada'), Num (which I think is his version of 'Yum') and jibber jabbers almost non-stop.
Growls at the dogs.
Chews/sucks on his binky upside down.
Took his very first steps for Daddy on Saturday (go figure, I missed it).
LOVES strawberries and turkey.
Will smile and laugh anytime that I start to sing 'The Boat Song' to him. It's our song. <3
Knows the word no and what it means although he tests us constantly with it.
Truly enjoys dumping the dogs' food and water dishes before I can get to them in the morning.
Smiles for the camera.  =)
Loves to give hugs but will only give kisses to Mommy - and only when he wants to.
Laughs at the dogs constantly, tries to hug on them and play with them and would do anything to be around them.
Wishes he could be outdoors at all times. If a door is open for even a second, he's out of it like a rocket.
Smiles and laughs 80% of the day - he's such a happy boy.
Still only has 2 bottom teeth - with four top trying to pop through.
Loves to take a bath but hates to get dressed and hates to have his diaper changed.
Doesn't really care for television, but will sit and explore the pages of his books for a long while.
Is good most of the time, but can throw a horrible temper-tantrum fit at times when he doesn't get his way.
Would eat everything he picked up if you let him.
Loves to play with shoes.
Hates having his face and hands washed off.
Tries to climb EVERYTHING and has figured out how to climb up the sides of his playpens, rendering it ineffective.
Snuggles close when he's tired but prefers to go to sleep on his own these days.
Turns upside down in the bed every night - I think just so he can kick mom and dad in the face from time to time.
Wakes up wayyyy too early and goes to sleep wayyyy too late and then refuses to take more than one nap a day. (I think he's afraid he's going to miss something)
Is a wonderful, funny, curious little boy who God knew would bless my life in ways that I could never have imagined.

I can't wait to see what the coming months will bring.
