Jack: 10 months

1 December 2014

Wow, another month, another blog post about our gorgeous babe.  10 whole months old.  A bit late as we were on holiday when Jack was 10 months - these photos were taken on my moms lawn in the beautiful sunshine.  I had some fading flowers from a friend which I used to faff and created these shots.  

Jack has really developed in leaps and bounds this past month.  Some of the things he loves to do:

- clap hands (this is very recent and if he doesnt clap he waves his arms frantically!)
- crawling at a SUPER speed everywhere
- walking with his favourite v-tech walker (best purchase after the ergo)
- giggling at the cats and pulling Tom's tail
- loves Ella's Kitchen pouches
- settling in at nursery (what a relief!)
- starting to give us things, it really is so sweet!
- taking his socks off
- LOTS of chatting!

We finished our first term at Water Babies, those classes are money well spent but I am not sure we can afford to carry on and there is nothing stopping us going to the swimming pool at the leisure centre down the road.  But a part of me also thinks we should carry on until he learns to swim.  We will see.

Jack is also a lot more settled and confident with other people now, I think this is thanks to nursery.  Hopefully while in South Africa (I am writing this the night before we fly) he will be happy and not too clingy!  When we get back from South Africa I am going to start bottlefeeding - its been a happy 10 months of breastfeeding but I feel it is time to stop now.  Plus Jack starts 3 full days at nursery in January when I go back to work and needs to be able to take a bottle when he is there.

As each day passes and Jack shows us something else he has learnt and his fun and bubbly personality shines through our heart overflows with love for this little bug.  He is our world and we cannot imagine life without him.  I often wonder what we did with all our time before he arrived.  And sometimes I know I wish I had more time to myself so I could do things I want to do but in reality when Jack goes to nursery on a Tuesday and Thursday morning I cannot wait to collect him at 1pm.  I mean, don't get me wrong it is awesome to get stuff done and go out in the car without worrying about taking the whole of the kitchen sink with me but I miss him for those 5 hours.

Happy 10 months Jack.  You are awesome and we love you to the moon and back.
