10 months.

Can't hardly believe it. 10 months...well 10.5 now. Wowza.

What we love about Rowan at 10 months:
  • He is moving!!! CRAWLING, CRUISING, PULLING UP. Todo...except walking. We are all not ready for that one yet.
  • Now that Ro has hit all his proper developmental milestones, he is much more of a handful! I need a vacuum cleaner to follow him around and a nap in the afternoon. :)
  • He has learned to pull up to standing in his crib which means new nap-time games. Mommy feeds Rowey, reads books, rocks, and puts in bed. Normally Rowey would fall asleep, but now it is sooooo much fun to stand up 3 or 4 times and yell for momma. I would just let him be, BUT he has not figured out how to get down from standing! The only way he know to get down is to fall back stiff as a board (we are working on falling on our bums), and that makes mommy kinda nervous in a wooden crib. YIKES.
  • He officially needs a helmet. His head has become a battering ram for all things in its path.
  • He is becoming more social. He will go up and "introduce" himself to people nearby Mommy and Daddy.
  • He will pat anything and everything he loves. PAT, PAT, PAT. So if you get a head pat from Rowey you know you are in the club!
  • His fav. food is noodles and sauce. He is his mother's son! I finally discovered orzo pasta for cutting needed! Wahoooo!
  • He loves little baby friends, and has a special affinity for one of the cutest little baby girls ever...she is half Asian, half Caucasian. His mother is VERY happy about that!!!
  • He is getting much better playing with a ball. He loves to roll it back and forth with me.
  • He loves to play hide and seek with me! He thinks it is super funny when I hide and then pop out and surprise him. Now that he can crawl I will hide and he will crawl to find me laughing all the way!
  • He loves to dance to music. I am trying to introduce him to a variety...Raffi, Lady Gaga, Mozart... ya know, all the classics. :)
  • He is understanding Skype a little too much for a baby. When he hears the little Skype call ring he gets very excited and happy. He also loves to touch people's faces on the screen...he especially loves to honk noses...
  • Lastly, his top two toofers are poking through. :)
We sure love this little booger.

Big Boy.

This is how I find Rowey after every nap now. Love his sleepy eyes, rosy cheeks and bed head. He'll jump and play until I come get him. I love these precious moments. I am one of the luckiest!

Firsts at 10.5 months.

Well development has finally caught up with Rowey this week. After months of being a chill baby boy who sits and plays, Rowey has taken off. He crawls, he cruises, he stands on his own, and as of today he pulls up in his crib. Oh yes he does. We snuck by his room as he was supposed to be sleeping to find his chubby cheeked, smiley face looking at us through the crack in door. "Look at me mom and dad!! I am so awesome!! ". It was pretty cute.

Here is Rowey crawling. I caught his second time on tape!! The first crawling episode totally threw me off guard! Rowey was hungry and whiney, but I wasn't going to feed him until I got a good video. :p

Also, Rowey has learned some Zumba moves. I have taught him well. :p

A whole new world.

The mess.

The culprit.
I don't think I'm ready for this! Haha! Rowey has been crusin' more and crawling...just crusin'. Today we ate breakfast in the living room, and that is where I went wrong! Left the cereal on one end of the the couch, Rowey on the other, went into the other room for for exactly 35 seconds, and came back to find this. I love how he so graciously rubbed in the cereal to make sure it became encrusted to every micro-fiber of our couch. :D But, seriously as soon as I saw his face I had to giggle, through my stern "Uh-Oh" expression. That is truly how you survive being a Mommy! Also, a magnet is missing from our fridge...should I be worried about that ;). I am definitely not ready for this!

Let's try this again...don't think my last video was visible!

*Rowey turning pages.*
(sorry I couldn't embed it this time)

Nana ReRe.

We had a lovely time when Nana ReRe came for a visit. We got her for the whole weekend. Unfortunately, we were sick puppies. Fortunately, she did not get sick and we were still able to have fun. Rowey loved his singing Nana! I think he learned about 10 new songs! :) We loved having her to talk to and laugh with...come back!!

The documentation...unfortunately only one picture actually has Nana in it!
Fun clown toy from Nana. Rowan is in love with it!

Playing at the park.

Eating breakfast at Communal. Rowan loved himself some Eggs Benedict. :)

Rowey is growing up before our very eyes. The latest and greatest is that he loves to turn the pages of books as we read them. Not sure how he caught on, but he sure loves turning those
