I can’t believe we’re in the double digits! Although I have my moments where I feel Logan is way older than 10 months.
Maybe that comes from the fact that he’s just so big. When I see him compared to other babies I am in shock of his size. Other babies who are the same age look so tiny next to him. He just seems like a little man now, not so much a little baby.
This week I also noticed that he is really starting to learn and develop. He grabs for the rings on his play mat, he literally gets him self in laughing outburst [he started cooing about two weeks ago, but the other day I heard an actual giggle], and he can hold his head up!
The head will start to droop a little after a few minutes, but he’s not bobbling back and forth anymore like he was last week. We got him a little Bumbo chair a few days ago and sat him in it, and there he was sitting almost upright! I started to tear up because I just couldn’t believe that my little baby was SITTING there all by himself.
He did something this week though that totally freaked me out. We were driving in the car, and I was looking at him in the little back seat mirror that I have, when I noticed that he looked different. I looked a little harder and noticed that he was leaning way over, almost with his face in his chest. I got so scared thinking that I didn’t strap him in right and just as I was getting ready to pull the car over he put his head back up like normal, so I kept driving. A few minutes later, there he was again, head down. I was at a stoplight and watched for a second and realized that he was leaning over to eat the puppies that are on his seatbelt straps. I started laughing so hard. And now every time we’re driving in the car he is straining to try and get those puppies in his mouth! He loves them.
My favorite time with him is our mornings together.
When I go in to get him out of his crib he has the biggest smile on his face and just stares up at me with these eyes of love. For an hour we’ll play with each other just laughing and being silly. This week, with all his new sounds I’ve become obsessed with taking videos of him. I’m just so afraid that in 20 years I won’t remember all these little sounds and faces unless I record them all.
I also feel like him and I are really starting to figure each other out. I know now what his hungry cry is and what his tired cry is. It makes me feel much more confident in myself that I’m able to understand him better and fix whatever problem it is that he’s having.
We celebrated Father’s Day in this week 10 and it was so fun! Logan and I decorated the house up with streamers, #1 Dad signs, and pictures of Logan and Lucas together. I can’t wait for next year when Logan will be a little bit bigger and actually be able to celebrate more, but this day was still so special. Logan is so lucky to have such a good Daddy.
