Lucas Parker ~ 10m update!

Someone was not into his monkey picture this month!
Guess who's 10 months old! That's right. This big guy! I can't believe how much has changed in the last month. No check ups this month, so not real sure how much he's grown but he is still a very solid little guy. Lucas is on the move. Crawling everywhere! It literally happened over night. He would get up on his hands and knees, rock back and forth, and then lunge forward onto his belly. Every so often he would pull his knee forward, but would just slide it back. A little incentive goes a long way. He loves my phone, so I put it on the floor, a few feet in front of him, and his eyes lit up. One step forward, two steps back for a while, but by the next morning he was a pro! He's also pulling up on the couch and some toys. Just up to his knees though. He's still working on getting his feet under him.
No new teeth yet. Apparently it's a slow process. There are a couple at the top and at least one more on the bottom that are very close.

This boy is in love with the Bubble Guppies. He used to be stuck on Mickey, but this show has his full attention whenever it's on. To the point that when the intro to the show starts, he crawls all the way across the living room, and plants his little tush right in front of the TV. Our TV is mounted on the wall above the fireplace. He sits just in front of the tile in front of the fireplace and has to look almost straight up to see it. If we move him back, he crawls right back to his spot and will not be bothered! He will literally sit and watch an entire episode. I've never seen anything like it!
He's on a pretty good schedule as far as meals go. Wakes at 8:30 and has a big bottle. 2 hours later he has his breakfast with cereal, then nap. Wakes around noon and has another smaller bottle. 2 hours later, lunch with cereal. 2 hours later he has another smaller bottle and then naps. Wakes between 5 and 6 and has dinner with cereal. He has his last bottle around 8:30 then goes to bed. Wow! Looks like a lot when I put it like that. Must be rough eating and sleeping all day, haha!

Lucas is not a fan of getting his diaper changed so mommy and daddy have to be fast or he is rolling away. He has become a daddy's boy over the last month. Makes me a little sad but I am with him all day everyday so I guess I understand why he wants daddy when he is home. At some point this month he has also figured out how to wave. It is absolutely adorable! I have his 1st birthday theme picked and invitations are designed! I can't believe how fast it is coming. The 8 months I was pregnant took forever but the last 10 months have FLOWN by. I guess that is how the story always goes, right!?

I didn't get many pictures this month because someone doesn't sit still long enough but here are the few I did manage to get...

This face melts me to mush!

"No time for pictures mom, I got a monkey to eat"

Standing (mommy helped him up) like a big boy!

Oh he is so very cute and cannot believe how quickly time flies. I remember 10 months for both my girls, but now my oldest will be 4 in a few weeks and my youngest is 2 1/2!! Loved all the pictures, too! :)

His face is so sweet!! Hopefully he gets back into the all-about-momma phase soon. ;)

He is the cutest! I wanna squeeze his cute little arms and legs again. :)

Oh my goodness, I know what you mean about Bubble Guppies. Dom and Will could watch it over and over and never get tired of it!
