MEET JUDAH: TEN MONTHS OLD

Judah's First Easter

I realized that I never posted Judah's nine month appointment stats, so here they are: 17 lbs 12.5 oz (about 7th percentile) and 28 1/4 inches (about 50th percentile). Long and lean. The doctor wasn't concerned that Judah is such a lightweight (breastfed babies tend to be lower on the charts) and just told me that we need to add more fats to his diet. We feel like he's TOTALLY gotten denser since we've started doing that, it's amazing how sore our arms get from carrying him around these days. Wow, what a workout!

So what's new with little j? Well, he still doesn't crawl (in the the traditional sense) but he scoots, rolls, and army crawls everywhere he wants to go. He always heads for things he's not supposed to first (like computer cords, the sound machine in his bedroom, or door-stoppers around the house), so sassy! He's definitely starting to test boundaries and has been known to throw the slightest little fit every now and then. SO not ready for that! He's so adorable, though, we know that disciplining him is going to be a HUGE challenge for us from here on out. He is cutting his SEVENTH tooth! I'm starting to become convinced that Judah will grow up to be a dentist (or a denturist like Papa). With his early dental development and his obsession with people's teeth and toothbrushes (he's ALWAYS been fascinated with us brushing our teeth and likes having his brushed as well) that profession seems only natural!

We're looking forward to spending more time outside now that the weather is finally starting to warm up! It will be especially fun to head to the pool in our neighborhood to cool off on hot days.
