Joshua just celebrated his ten-month birthday. Here are some pictures of him from this summer.
At his last check-up, he weighed 15 pounds nine ounces. Although he didn't gain as much weight as we were hoping, he did grow two and a half inches taller over the summer to 28 and a quarter inches tall.
He is now sporting five teeth, with another one on the way. He loves chewing (actually mostly gumming) new foods and textures. This week he tried a fresh pear for the first time and seemed to enjoy it. String cheese, though, remains his favorite new food.
Every day he becomes more mobile. He is now so efficient at his tummy scoot that he hardly has motivation to learn to crawl.
A few weeks ago he learned how to sit up from a tummy position and loves the new power it has given him.
Currently his favorite activity is jumping -- in his jumper or on any volunteer's lap.
He is still very sweet, and we so enjoy watching as he explores the world around him and discovers all the new things he can do!
