Tanner James: 10 months

{climbing the rocking chair}

  • His hair is covering his ears on the sides now. Not sure how he is going to sit still for that first hair cut.
  • He got 4 teeth at once and I think they are still coming.
  • Sleep hasn't been so great. Probably partly because of the teeth and also, now that he's older, co-sleeping is hard because if he wakes up and sees Kyle in bed he wants to crawl over and play which is not so cute at 3am.
  • Still super happy boy and he loves to flash his dimples at anyone who will make eye contact with him.
  • He loves his big sis and follows her around laughing at everything she does. He's starting to fight back a little if she tries to boss him around though.
  • He runs so hot. He gets so sweaty when he sleeps. It's crazy but I've Googled (of course) and I think we are still in the normal range ;)
  • We all keep getting sick.  We share everything in this house including every illness that comes within 50 feet of us.
  • Tanner is finally starting to imitate and is high fiving.
  • He has bumps and bruises constantly and we have had to start getting rid of everything not bolted down for his safety. He's definitely a climber.
  • If he's not eating or sleeping, he/s on the move.
  • He had his 1st Halloween. We did a family costume of Blake's choosing. She was Alice in Wonderland, Tanner was the White Rabbit, and Kyle and I were Tweedle Dee/Dum.
  • Taking 2-3 steps at a time now.

Tanner's Nursery

Better late than never.  Here's a peek into lil'man's room.
I know these pictures are really bright.  I had too much light coming in the window and still can't always figure out the correct settings on my camera.  That and the fact that I have no time for camera  adjustments with these crazy kids around :)

Tanner James: 9 months

This is the best I could get. It's getting harder and harder.

  • Still loves all foods and has tried everything. He's had Chow Mein, spaghetti and meat balls, tacos, etc. 
  • Starting to do a few more sounds, finally, and has figured out how to gain attention by raising his volume.  It makes things interesting when we are out in public.
  • Cutting 1st tooth
  • He is cruising really well now and has let go and taken a few steps. He's at expert-level crawling now. It's terrible because he's so fast that he gets away too quick and is into everything these days.  He's a climber too!
  • His hair is still a darker, auburn color.  Definitely different than Blake's in color but about the same as far as the curls go at this point.
  • He refuses to wear a hat or socks. This bugs me because I want him to wear beanies in the winter because they are so cute. 
  • He's a sweaty hot guy all the time. 
  • He was a total trooper at his 9 month appointment shots.  Nothing really bothers him for too long. It's a good thing too because he is always getting bumps and bruises. 
  • His stats at 9 month check up are: Weight: 19lbs  Height: 28.5 in Head Size:47.5 (98th percentile) That's a huge head!
**Yeah I know this is over a month late. The pictures are taken at at the correct time and I collect the info/milestones on my phone so the info is accurate. I'm just late on the post ;)  10 month post coming soon.
