Collins @ 10 months


Collins has exploded this past month with accomplishing milestones. He is babbling a lot now, crawling all over the place, self-feeding, cutting four teeth and pulling up to his knees. We've had to put the baby gate up and raise his crib rail.

He had about a two week stint of not sleeping well at night (mainly just getting up early - 5:45am). At no point did I check his gums. Well, lo and behold, this little turkey was cutting two on the bottom at the same time and then the following week his top two came in. No wonder he was not sleeping well!

Above is a picture of mid-babble. He blows a lot of raspberries. We're working on mamamamama but haven't gotten it down yet. Oh yeah, dadadada is still a work in progress, too.

Love that smile and dimples!

Crawling all over the place. BecBec worked on this with Collins while I was at Mom & Me Camp with Hughes. He was just starting to get it with her but then came home and totally showed off his skills.

And, on his knees. He loves to get in this position and bounce up and down while flailing his arms and babbling. I know he's saying something important!

Collins loves fruit - watermelon, grapes, honeydew. Yesterday at Jason's Deli, he ate 3/4 of my bowl of chicken pot pie soup. He's still taking two naps a day. His later nap tends to be his longer one.

He really is the best baby. 99% of the time he is always smiling and relaxed. I hope he always has this demeanor.

Collins, you make our family a better family. I don't know what I would do without your wet kisses and giggly laugh. You're the perfect caboose to this Holman train.
