Charlie at Ten Months...

Charles Davis... you are ten months old! 
You are such a happy boy and always have a smile on your face.  You are even more mobile than before but not yet walking.  You cruise along the couch and have no problem pulling up on any furniture or even against the wall. We will catch you standing on your own for a few seconds so your balance continues to get better.
You weigh 20 pounds and are wearing size 12 month clothes.  You are taking 4 bottles a day with 7 ounces in each. You are also eating three times a day and an afternoon snack.  You LOVE puffs and have no problem eating those.  However, you do not seem too interested in other foods that you would pick up so we continue to spoon feed you baby food for your meals.  I continue to place things in front of you and I know one day you'll show more of an interest in eating solids.
Sleeping is getting better and you go down between 7:30-8 at night and can usually make it until 4 or 5 before waking up.  We will usually give you a bottle and sometimes you go back to sleep or you may be up for the day. You are also taking two naps a day.  Usually you go down around 10 am and will sleep two hours and then take another shorter nap in the afternoon.
Your personality is really coming out and you are so different than your brother!  You are aggressive, fearless and such a determined little boy.  You love to wrestle with your brother and at this point Henry just laughs.  I imagine that will change in a few years when you really are beating him up :)
Speaking of Henry, you absolutely adore your brother and he feels the same way about you.  We love watching the two of you interact and you both get so excited to see each other in the mornings.  You constantly want to play with his toys which doesn't always go over well....
You love any type of ball and love to chase it around the room.  You are also really good about throwing the ball and have great hand eye coordination at this age.
You also love to be outside.  Even if it's when your brother is pushing you in his dump truck :)
At ten months you do not have any teeth and I was sure you would have at least a few based on the amount of drooling you've been doing the past few months.  I have to say I love your gummy grin though so I'm OK if you hold out a little longer.
Bath time is always a favorite time for you, especially if it involves your brother.  The two of you splash and giggle and water will be all over the room.  Hard to get mad though when I see how much fun you're having.
Charlie boy, we love you to the moon and back and love seeing your personality shine.  Looking forward to watching you grow!
