My baby is ten months old! Seriously, double digits? I'll admit that I'm not really ready for my littlest one to have a birthday, but I suppose I can't do anything about it. Despite wishing that time would slow down a bit, we are having a ton of fun with Beau at this age!
Developing quite the temper!
Beau weighs around 18 pounds & is growing like a weed. He keeps getting longer way faster than he gains weight, though, so he usually sports some saggy pants. Cute little thug. :) Here he is in the middle of one of his current favorite pastimes, pushing his siblings' plasma cars around. When he gets behind the car & pushes, he can really boogie!
My little man isn't ready to walk yet, but he cruises like a champ & has stood for a few seconds on his own a couple of different times. Beau loves to give high fives, plays peek-a-boo, fake coughs & sneezes, nods his head yes & can say a few words. His latest are "uh-oh" & "Papa."
This pic on the left was the first time he has ever "cheesed" for a picture. What heart wouldn't melt from that smile? Mr. Smarty Pants has figured out how to be charming & is starting to use that charm to test the boundaries a bit. He laughs hysterically when heading for the fireplace or stairs because he knows he's not supposed to. Dropping food off of his high chair tray is also a great joke in his opinion.
As I mentioned, my sweet boy can spark a nasty temper. He takes after his sister in that regard. His pouty lip it totally pitiful, he can scream louder than any kid I've heard & he has taken to throwing his head back in a full body arch when he doesn't like what you're doing. Good thing he's cute.
Beau continues to love food & will try anything. Here he is after his first spaghetti dinner. Favorites right now include bananas, green peas, broccoli, red grapes & anything with ground beef.
He has also come to love dill pickles!
We love our lively little boy!
