Our baby boy is 10 months old! double digits!! goodness thats hard to say.. it is so bittersweet watching him grow. Every stage has become my new favorite. 10 months old has been so much fun, he is a little giggle box, he grabs my face and opens his mouth to give me kisses, he stands holding on with one hand. He is still crawling to places while exploring and venturing out, mama is his favorite and he is still dealing with some separation anxiety where he only wants me, he loves his daddy and is constantly looking at the door when mentioned his name and waiting for his dad to get home from work so he can play with him. His personality is developing in leaps and bounds and due to all the new skills he is mastering which allow him to engage and interact more than ever, we have so much fun together. He is such a happy little chappy, constantly smiling and laughing, and I adore spending time with him.
It is during this past month that Dhyan seems to have suddenly morphed into a little boy. It is as though he went to sleep one evening and overnight transformed from a baby to a toddler. I look at him now, with his dark brown hair, light brown eyes and pouty lips. He suddenly looks so much older and although it’s bittersweet that his baby days are behind us, I love witnessing the person he is becoming.
Height/Weight/Teeth/Clothing size: Plodding along nicely on the 80th percentile, Dhyan weighs 23 lbs and 11 oz at 10 months. We suspected he had a growth spurt as he looked bigger and had been sleeping more, and it was confirmed when we measured him, he has grown with in a month and he is now shot up to 3o inches… 92 percentile for height. Wears 12-18 month clothes and has 8 teeth already and 2 more coming.. one of them is possibly a molar..
My little munchkin loves reading books. Hand Hand Finger Thumb is his favorite.. He wouldnt mind if you keep reading that book to him all day.. Lol
Health: Dhyan finally had his first cold. I like to think he managed so long without one due to being breastfeeding, but maybe we just got lucky. He coped with it very well and remained surprisingly chipper considering he had a constant nasal drainage and cough.
Here is my son doing yoga.. He does it every morning.. practically two to three times a day ;).. Esp when he sees me doing yoga poses LOL
Sleeping: Dhyan is now sleeping through the night and is still going the half night in crib and other half with me which ends up early morning. Sometimes he wakes during the night and fusses a little bit but now that he is in a routine he will put himself back to sleep after playing by him self for bitter bit. I still love cuddling with him and its the best way for both of us to wake up each other in the morning.
Dhyan visited marry-maid farms with the family in Lansdale, Pennsylvania 🙂
Eating: Dhyan is still on baby led weaning and its working great for us. Dhyan is trying slowly to eat pieces of food and takes his own time while eating it. His independence is coming through. These days he wants to eat anything he sees his mom eating LOL. On my birthday he ended up eating pizza with me and some days bread slices with some butter. He loves eating crackers and oatmeal puffs for snacks. We found these yogurt snack for babies at aldi and he loves those. Dhyan usually eats cereal with breastmilk in the morning and for lunch i make indian vegetable khichdi,which is (rice/lentils/lots of different veggies – carrots/peas/spinach/etc) and in evening we have been trying different types of food every evening. Some days fruits/veggies and some days he eats lentils or tortillas and some days he ends up eating cereal at night also. Dhyan does well with sippy cup; very independent. Dhyan loves icecream- which i make at home for him. Dhyan loves bread, cheese, crackers for snack.
Meera and Dhyan 🙂 His playdate in Lansdale, PA
Manav and Dhyan 🙂 His playdate in Lansdale, PA
My lil munchkin had two playdates with mommys friends’ kids!
Dhyan still loves going to the park.. ❤
- Dhyan is constantly talking all the time.. mama.. dada.. nana.. tata.. papa.. daddi..
- Dhyan can point and bang toys together with both hands
- Dhyan has 8 teeth and 2 more coming right now.. possibly a molar is coming up.
- Dhyan is crawling and runs around in his walker and he does stand up holding onto pieces of furniture/people. This can be dangerous so I have to keep an eye on him all the time.
- Dhyan loves being near other kids and taking long walks on stroller. This month he doesnt even mind the long car rides.. We traveled almost 8 hours in the car and only had to stop 2 times to change his diaper. My baby hardly fussed or cried in the car. He just kept playing by him self and talking gibberish.
Celebrated Dhyan’s 10 month!
Dhyan also experienced his first Navaratri at his nana nanis home in Lansdale, PA.
Dhyan really enjoyed visiting his nana and mama and talked whole way through the 8 hour drive. My lil munchkin’s personality is glowing through.. Hoping what next month brings.. This is the best month so far.. Love you Dhyan.
