Wow. Double digits. I can hardly believe Micah is already 10 months old! He is so active, he gets into everything! He's also very curious and wants to know how everything works. Whatever Mommy and Daddy are doing he wants to be part of, whether it's cooking, reading, cleaning, whatever! He's also starting to play by himself more. The past couple of days he has really enjoyed looking at his books. He'll just sit there and page through them. He could honestly do this for at least 10 minutes. I always wonder what he's thinking when he's looking through the books! This month wasn't as busy as the past couple of months, but he still had some "big" things:
*We went to Palos Pool one day and met a family there that I used to baby sit for. Micah loved all of the attention that Jane and George gave him, and he really loved playing in the water with them!
*Micah finally got his first tooth! We thought it would never happen!!
*Micah met some of Daddy's family from Ohio. He had a lot of fun at a BBQ at Nana and Papa's house.
*One beautiful morning we decided to head to the zoo with Oma. Micah always loves going to the zoo. This time he got to hear the lion roar and see a herd of buffalo running.
*At Micah's 9 month check-up he weighed 20lbs. 8oz. and was 29 1/4in. long. He's a growing boy!
*Micah has started to sign "all done" for us.
*He can now stand on his own for several seconds at a time. I swear, it'll be no time before he's walking around the house!
*Micah helped host a playdate with some of Mommy's friends from MOPS. He did a great job sharing his toys with the other kids.
*He went shopping at Michigan City with Mommy and her friends from high school. He did so great, never cried or complained about Mommy taking too long at a store. My friends loved having him with us. I had to make sure he was still in the carseat when I dropped them off to make sure no one kidnapped him! :)
*We've started to baby sit one of Micah's friends, Benjamin, two days a week. Micah's kind of indifferent to Benjamin right now, except when Mommy is playing with him!
*We spent Micah's 10 month birthday with Mommy's college friends at Warren Dunes. Micah had a great time playing in the sand with Jackson and kept trying to crawl to the water on his own.
Overall, a very fun month. I'm really hoping September brings some cooler weather so that we can get outside some more with my energy being completely zapped from the heat. I'd really like to take advantage of the free days at the museums. But I can't believe my baby is getting closer and closer to being one year old! It's gone by way too fast!
