David: 10 months old

David turned 10 months old this week. He is growing up so fast. He is a busy little boy ... much busier than my busy little girl. He is going to be TROUBLE when he gets a little older ... I have a feeling. So, for scrapbooking purposes, this month with David:

He got 2 new teeth. You can see them barely poked through on the bottom. That makes a total of 8 teeth now. No wonder he is such a good eater! He loves to feed himself and he is pretty good at it ... no major food buildup in the food-catcher (aka: bib). He almost eats as much as Claire. Will's parents had the kids one day and his mom called to tell me that David had eaten 4 chicken nuggets, some french fries and half a fish sandwich bun at McDonalds. And he gets mad if you don't get the food to him fast enough too!

He loves to play peek-a-boo. Here is Claire and Will trying to entertain him while I get his dinner ready.

We are crawling and cruising everywhere now. He is a good little walker and uses anything he can get his hands on to move (e.g., the garbage can, a chair, etc.). He is getting braver each day and I know that sometime soon he is going to let go and walk! Meanwhile, I see many bumps and bruises in our future.

I thought this was a cute shot from behind and it shows off his first Mickey shirt that Will got him when he was in Anaheim, CA for work a couple of weeks ago.
David loves his mommy! He is such a sweet little boy. I love to go get him up in the morning. He is always standing there in his crib (which is now on its lowest setting) waiting for you. He gets the biggest grin when he sees you and starts jumping up and down. Oh yeah, the crib is one of his new favorite teething toys. I have come in his room many times to find black specks of paint around his mouth where he has been chewing on his crib. Hope the crib paint is non-toxic!
David loves to ride on Will's shoulders (and pull his hair in the process). Will looks thrilled! I'm afraid he is going to be my biter and pincher. He will grab a handful of skin and squeeze and it hurts so bad.
David got this super-cool zebra toy (named Ryan) for Christmas from Santa and he has finally figured out how to sit on it properly. He still has a little trouble getting down though. We have to make sure the area is clear around him to prevent any major injuries!
Last, but not least, David has found the stairs in our house. Anytime he is left unattended downstairs (even for a second), he will start making his way over to the stairs. Initially, he would just play on the bottom step, but here lately, he has been halfway up before we found him. Hence, the gate is officially up!
I don't have a picture of this (shocking!), but David claps now and it is the cutest thing I have ever seen. We cheer and get real excited when he does it and he just grins and claps more. I could just look at his sweet little smile all day long!
