At 10 months, Joel...

...weighs 19 lbs 15 oz and measures 29 inches long.  He is officially in the double-digits of growth and birthdates.  How did we get here so fast!?

...loves raspberries, which warms his Bestemor's heart!

...is communicating by pointing with his pointer finger, waving bye, saying "Mama", and "puh puh" (for puffs).

...has hair that is coming in thicker on top, in the back, and in the right light ;).

...looks a lot like his sister at this age especially with his big brown eyes-nose wrinkle-look!

...is bum scooting, bum turning, pushing himself backwards and around in circles.  Sometimes he gets himself into some pretty tricky spots, like in-between the legs of a chair or backed into a wall.  When sitting, he can fold himself in half to touch his toes.  His flexibility is amazing!  The favorite new places to play are the kitchen cupboards, especially the pot drawer that can be pulled out and pushed back in, and the magnets on the fridge door.

...calms down right away when we spend time outside, go for a walk, or give him time to splash in the water.  Even having his hands under running water is soothing for him.

A short little update this month to describe all that this lil' man of ours is doing, learning, and growing.  You are such a delight!
