Happy 10 months, Tate William! In January, Tate started REALLY gabbing. He’s now saying “mama” all the time, along with bababa yayaya dadada and lots of other “words” and noises! He yells to get your attention or when he’s frustrated. Early this month he mastered crawling and now is a speedy little explorer, especially interested in cords, shoes, trashcans, his space heater, and really anything that is not a toy! 🙂 He still likes his toys too, but seems to be most interested in “the forbidden.” He also enjoys pulling himself up to standing, mostly in his crib. He has two teeth fully in on the bottom along with two on the top and two more on the bottom coming in. This month he got to spend some time with Grandma Deb and also took a trip to Chicago where he got to visit with Mimi, Papa and Aunt Jen. He especially loved swimming in the hotel pool! In day to day life he enjoys his time playing with his friend Risden, going to Story Time at the library, getting tossed, wrestled and flipped by Daddy, feeding himself, smiling at strangers, bouncing up and down in his high chair, occasionally sitting still to read books, and in general being energetic, sweet, happy and curious!
