10 months.

Grant is 10 months old!

- He is now in Size 4 Diapers.
- No official measurements this month.
- Sleeps 7 pm- 7 am and then usually after a bottle, he is still tired and will go back to sleep until 9:30 am.
- Still takes 2 naps, although they are getting shorter. 

- He must be going through a growth spurt because he is growing out of all his clothes very quickly.
- Grant now wears mostly 6-12 and 12 month clothing. All of his 6 month onesies and 9 month sleepers are getting really snug.

- Grant has 6 teeth. He has started chewing on everything again so we are expecting more teeth to appear soon.
-He is full on mobile, but only moves if he really wants something haha. I find it funny how content he is, playing with the same thing for the longest time. 

-His favorite toy is his discovery table.
-Scratch that, his favorite toy will always be the drawstrings on his pants.
-Easily distracted by his clothes? haha

"Is that a truck?"
"Is that a bear...wearing sunglasses...playing the keyboard?" 
"Mom, there are fish on my pants!"
He is my own personal vaccuum cleaner. If there is even the tiniest little sliver of something in the carpet somewhere, Grant will find it.

-About 2 weeks ago he started pulling himself to standing with furniture.
-He will slowly walk around and turn around while holding onto furniture.
-He can balance and stand by himself for a couple of seconds.
- We started supplementing his bottles with homo milk (1/2 formula, 1/2 milk).

- Grant has tried so many new foods this past month including scrambled eggs, cut up fruit, peas, beans, cooked carrots, corn, toast, chicken, pasta, tomatoes, pork...

- He actually likes water now, but prefers drinking out of a real cup rather than a sippy cup.

- He makes a spitting noise with his lips.
- He has started discovering his tongue more, making 'l' noises. He also says mama now!
- Grant flexes and grunts constantly.
- He yells sings all the time now.

- He is in "mimick" mode. He has started copying our movements/sounds etc.
-(I feel like I forgot to put this in an earlier post but I was always impressed with how Grant uses his fingers, he was picking up tiny objects with his thumb and forefinger at about 6 1/2 months old).

- He reaches for you when he wants you to pick him up.

We were away on our trip for half of this month so a lot of his time this month was spent at Grandma's house!
