Another month gone by and today the wee man is 10 months old. I won’t ask where the time went because at this point… if I haven’t figured it out yet, I never will.
The boy is thriving and continues to make us laugh on a daily basis, even when he’s having a Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde kind of day. It’s frightening how one minute he can be the happiest of babies and then the next have a meltdown of epic proportions full of head on the floor kind of drama.
I suppose that’s what happens when you’re learning all kinds of new things and trying not to get frustrated when things don’t go the way you know they should.
This whole learning to walk thing can be tedious, you know? Plus the poor man is teething, so that doesn’t help matters. All in all, though, he’s a joy to have around and I love watching him figure things out. Like cupboards. We now are in need of childproof cabinet locks. Blast.
I’m hoping that he’ll be satisfied with one cupboard until we can manage to get locks installed. Thankfully, it’s not like we have too many cupboards and only a few are hiding potential death behind their doors.
As far as other things go, he’s as talkative as ever and is making new sounds, though walking is still first and foremost on his mind. He’s also eating more and trying new things as often as we can give them to him. It’s fun to see him experiment, and it means I have to get more creative with meals so he doesn’t get bored (and he does). I could easily eat the same few things over and over, but Enzo disagrees.
In just two months an entire year will have passed. It really is true that they grow up so fast and a year really can pass by in an instant. My life was so incomplete without this little man. While it isn’t always easy, each day I seem to learn something new about him and myself. Motherhood is such a gift.
