Torin Xander is 10 months old! This month has been full of fun activities and celebrations! We celebrated the 4th of July (by going to bed early haha!) and my birthday! Dude and Granda got to come visit! Aunt Selinda and Uncle Robbie announced Torin is getting a cousin!! It’s been such a fun month! And Torin hasn’t even thought about slowing down! Seriously. Wait until you see his “monthly photos” I tried to take. I had to get Usbec to help me, then my mom, and we still didn’t get some of the photos I always try to take, but that’s ok! 🙂
Memories from this month:
He has TWO molars!! Holy moly, I don’t think one has broken through all the way and bless his heart he’s had a rough time going to sleep the past week or so. He’s chewing on everything but he’s not fussy really at all until it’s time for bed. He’s such a trooper! He now has 10 teeth in all!
We’re back to taking 2 naps a day! And his night time schedule is still mostly the same. For about 3 weeks he was sleeping about 15 hours a night and almost no naps or one small nap. Now he’s sleeping about 12-14 hours at night and, most of the time, 2 1-2 hour naps a day depending on how long he actually sleeps at night. I know that might sound like a lot, but if you could see the energy he has when he’s awake! I need about 3 naps and 14 cups of coffee a day just to keep up with him! 😉
He crawls SO FAST! Yesterday I was playing with him and he heard Usbec in the other room. He took off crawling and was laughing so hard the entire time because I was acting like I was chasing him. I love his laugh so much!
This month we celebrate the 4th of July – by not doing anything! Haha Usbec worked outside mowing the lawn and things and then we just hung out until Torin’s bath time! It was a good day though!
We also celebrated my birthday! And I don’t think I’ve ever had a better one. This was my favorite one so far getting to celebrate with Torin! We went to The Chop House for an early dinner and had almost the whole area to ourselves. Torin was babbling and singing the whole time and it was perfect!
Aunt Selinda and Uncle Robbie announced Torin is getting a little baby cousin in January!! And we couldn’t be more excited!
Torin LOVES to dance! There’s a song that he absolutely loves. It doesn’t matter what he’s doing or how tired he might be, if that song comes on he stops what he’s doing and starts dancing. We have about 15,000 videos of him dancing to that one song and he’s smiling in every single one of them!
He’s obsessed with trash cans. No, I’m not kidding. We have a stainless steel one in the kitchen and then we have a Bubula for his diaper pail in his room and he is crazy about them! We can’t keep him away.
Speaking of kitchen items, I’ve also set up one of the cabinets with baby friendly items for him. He loves playing in it! The rest of the cabinets had to be baby-proofed!
He’s been pulling up on things for about a month now, but he’s started to walk around the furniture now! It won’t be long until he’s walking on his own!
He’s still in 9 month clothes. Some of his pants are getting a little small after the last growth spurt he went through. There are still a few of his 6 month clothes he can still wear, but last week he woke up one morning and I realized he’d grown so much over night it seemed! So many of his 6 month clothes are now packed away!
He learned to drink out of a straw and loves his little thermos we have for him!
Nursing is still going well! Those will always be some of my favorite moments with him. He doesn’t really fall asleep in my arms too much any more. But when he does, I sit there and cherish every moment!
He’s babbling so, so much! To himself, to us, to anyone or anything that will listen. Why are baby sounds the sweetest??
This is Bobby. He was mine when I was little and Torin loves him!!
We went to the park one night for a session with Hadley and Torin got to tag along. He had the best time!! Usbec walked him around, he got to snack on puffs, he got to meet Hadley. It was so much fun!
Hadley wasn’t too sure why this little boy was trying to hold her hand! Haha! Oh it was just too sweet!
Oh my heart! His faces crack me up!
My first birthday celebrating with Torin!! It was the best!
Don’t worry Torin! In just 2 more months you’ll get your own cake!
Usbec came home and was saying “hi” to him so he started waving hello. haha!
I love his face in this next photo! It’s like, “Why do I have to wait so long for my cousin to get here?!!”
Why does he look SO big?? 🙁
Thank goodness Granda was here to help me get the rest of these photos! She had to tickle him to keep him from rolling away and crawling to his diaper pail!
I know these look so similar but I just couldn’t narrow it down any more. I love them all! <3
