Titus at 10 months

Well this month has seen the departure of my little baby and the arrival of my toddler. That's right. I have a toddler now in the house. The end of last month Titus learned how to walk, and he has just taken off! As of three or four days ago, he decided walking was better than crawling. And that was that. He now walks maybe 90% of the time. He does fall quite often, but its controlled (most of the time) and he picks himself back up and starts again.

Height: 29 inches
Weight: 20 pounds
Shoe size: 3
Diaper size: 3 (although I was thinking of putting 4s on at night for more absorbency)

Titus had a bit of a cold this last week that made life more miserable. Other than that, our days are very scheduled. He wakes up around 6:30. Naptime is usually from 8-9:30 or so. Sometimes a bit later depending on when he falls asleep. Then his second nap is usually around 12-2. I am trying to push it back because then he has a long awake stretch and bedtime is around 6:30.

He has a love/hate relationship with eating. He has a couple foods he really likes: watermelon, beans (refried or pinto) and puffs - the baby food variety. He also will sometimes eat coconut milk yogurt, meat (whatever we're eating), fruit - strawberries, banana, and peas. He will only sit still in his high chair for about three minutes (what can I say? I have active kids).

During the day, he is nursing quite a bit less than previously. He will nurse before his two naps and before he goes to bed. He wakes usually twice to nurse at night - once around 10pm, and then once sometime before morning. He falls asleep really easily for his naps and bedtime. He is so cute and sleeps on his tummy, with his but up in the air.

Like I said at the beginning, his activity level is extremely high! He is walking everywhere. He refuses to sit still in grocery carts - and can stand up (even with the belt fastened) in about 3 seconds. Grocery shopping with two kiddos is a challenge. He loves climbing and will practice going up and down stairs. He climbs onto chairs, and one of his favorites is climbing on the couch cushions. I'm sure one of these days he will figure out how to climb out of his crib (okay, I hope we have a couple months before this!).
