Ten months old and there is no stopping this baby! Shasta is your stereotypical baby boy – just on the go ALL the time! He’s so much fun and just so darn cute. He can wave now, and point, which he does a lot of. I tried doing his 10 month photos outside but it was really difficult ’cause he’d just crawl out of the guitar case and go try to eat a leaf or something. It’s funny, I couldn’t wait for summer to come so that we could just relax on the deck together, but it turns out it’s quite a bit of work to watch his every move and make sure he doesn’t inhale anything. Still fun though… he loves to crawl from one end of the deck to the other and explore everything he possibly can.
So other than pointing and waving, let me see what else I can update you on… he can’t stand alone yet, but I don’t think it’ll be too long before he can! He’s a very strong baby. When I’m holding him and he wants to go on the floor, he basically throws himself out of my arms (I’m surprised there haven’t been any injuries…). He HATES having his diaper changed and it is a big effort every time I change him. To put a new diaper on I have to stand him up and do it that way because he just squirms and fusses and… *sigh*. It is a challenge!! Oh, he also bites a lot, which obviously I am trying to discourage. If anyone has any tips or methods, PLEASE feel free to share them in the comments below!! Oh, and he can flush the toilet. I’m just trying to train him to do it only when mommy says. Don’t want to waste any water, right Mom?
Okay, so onto the pictures now. Aren’t his red overalls the cutest? Thanks Auntie Mandy!
