Owen is 10 months old!

My happy little baby is 10 months old and he is all over the place! Such a busy little boy. It is getting harder to get him to hold still for pictures!

GROWTH
Owen seems to keep growing like a weed! He is 30 inches long and 18 pounds 12 ounces.

Owen’s skin still occasionally flares up. We’ve narrowed it down to a dairy sensitivity. I have been using sunflower oil on his skin daily. I’m also giving him a probiotic daily.

EAT
Owen is still drinking breast milk. He is nursing or having a bottle 4 times a day now.

Owen is still having 3 “meals” a day and he LOVES food. He has breakfast in the later morning, lunch in the afternoon, and dinner with us when we eat. He is not a picky eater at all and it makes meal time super easy!

Owen has gotten really good at drinking his sippy cup so he has water with his meals and occasionally throughout the day if it’s hot out or he seems like he wants it.

SLEEP
Owen has been sleeping through the night. We are also at about 2-3 naps a day. We have a general nap pattern now that consists of a morning nap around 9 for about an hour or sometimes 2 and an afternoon nap usually around 1 ish for about 1-2 hours, and then if needed he takes a 3rd short nap in the evening.

TEETH
Owen has 4 teeth now. Two on the top and two on the bottom. He has more on the way too!

DEVELOPMENT/ACTIVITY
Owen is continuing to crawl and is fast and is willing to crawl over the top of things to get to where he wants. He is pulling himself to standing and has stood on his own for maybe a second. That is next I am sure.

Owen has mastered the pincer grasp and has become really good at feeding himself.

He regularly says “ma-ma” now and will occasionally say “da-da.” We are working on Liam and Marley still.

Owen now waves his hand in front of his face when we say “pe-ew” and is learning to wave hi/bye but hasn’t mastered this yet. He thinks it is silly to “bonk” his head. He still gives great open mouth kisses, claps his hands, gives high fives, and overall likes to copy what we are doing.

I believe there is a mutual love between Owen and Liam. They both just light up when they see one another.

Owen is still pretty obsessed with me. He regularly prefers me but does do okay with other people or if I am not around he is fine too.
