It was a month full of achievements for Mr. Josh. He kicked off month 10 by sitting up, starting to crawl, and pulling up and that was all in the first weekend. By the end of the first week, he had advanced from two to three strides at a time to a full-fledged crawler. These days he is anywhere and everywhere and constantly pulling up to standing. He hasn't quite mastered the art of cruising yet but I am sure that will come momentarily. He definitely loves his new mobility and has reminded us that we need to be on guard since everything goes into his mouth.
Additionally, at the start of month 10, the little guy had zero teeth. Now as the month closes out, he has four that have broken through the gums and two that are really close. Thankfully he has been a good sport with teething since it has been pretty well constant for the past several weeks. The new teeth must feel somewhat funny to him because his tongue is constantly hanging out his mouth to one side or the other as evidenced by most of the recent photos posted on this blog. The best is when the tongue is hanging out and the drool is pouring down.
We have made the transition to primarily table foods this month and the boy loves it. So far he hasn't met anything that he didn't like other than canned peaches possibly. One of the favorite foods of both Emma and Josh is black beans, which is great because I use them a lot especially during the summer.
I really can't believe that we only have two more months until the little boy is a year old and can't wait to see what he does in his eleventh month. My personal wish is to finally hear him say "Mama" but we'll see!
