Ten Months

Our little baby is all grown up and a full fledged toddler these days. He added 4 new teeth this last month, all on top - joining his 2, now much taller ones on the bottom. These 4 teeth really gave him some problems. I felt like he was trying really hard to be happy, but the slightest thing just knocked his spirits down. You could tell he was so uncomfortable, and nights were the WORST. Nothing could distract him from the teething pains then... So, we depended on baby Tylenol and Ibuprofen (as approved by our doctor).  There was pretty much 2 weeks of sleep deprivation in there for us all.

Then, once we were getting through teething a bad cold came!  A sad cough that would wake him up, gunk in his throat and running into his tummy to make eating hard.  Just when we thought we were through a rough patch, this cold came and robbed him of more sleep and made getting over this current bout of teething that much harder! Dang. 

Through it all, lack of sleep and not great eats, we had some good times, too. Not feeling good brings more cuddles... he likes to be held when sleepy, and while that's hard for me in the middle of the night, I try to cherish it, because these days he is on the go with no time for hugs!

Pumpkin Patch

Before Halloween, Liam picked us out some pumpkins at Johnson Farms Pumpkin Patch. He went for the biggest ones, of course.  It was a cold day, so we couldn't stay outside too long, but he had fun walking around all the pumpkins. I can't wait to see how he loves the other activities this farm has to offer when he's a little older... a maze, hayride, play areas, etc!

Mimi and Papa got to come along, too!
