10 Month Baby Update

Ten months - just two months shy of his first birthday. I say it every month but it's hard to believe that so much time has passed already! Thinking of the moments we used to share in smaller baby activities like tummy time and play mat time doesn't seem like that long ago (because it really wasn't)! It's hard to believe he's come so far and grown so much in such a short amount of time! 

This month was another big one for Brayden as he is becoming stronger and able to do so much more than before! Although he's not crawling 100% yet, he's getting there. He will crawl for a little bit, then fall into his army crawl position like a silly kid. This month, Brayden also began pulling himself up from a sitting position and he LOVES to stand along side the bathtub and watch as it fills with water for his bath time! His other favorite thing is to stand at our coffee table and play with the TV remotes. 

Clothing: 9 months and 9-12 months; sleepers are still at 9 month and 9-12 month
Diapers: Size 3
Weight: 23.2 pounds
Height: 29 1/4 inches 

Brayden still loves to eat and we've tried a wide variety of new foods. Something I'm glad he loves is rice and gravy (because I love it too)! Another favorite is mac and cheese and beans! Something I'm super grateful for is the fact that he does really well in restaurants! He is such a chill kid and as long as I have food or a toy, he's great!

He's also taking two naps per day - one in the morning about three hours after he wakes up and one in the afternoon (again about three hours after his last nap). 

He's also done so well with sleeping through the night again! YAY! In the past month, I could count on one hand the number of times he woke up at night! Thankfully, he always takes a bottle and goes right back to sleep. 

Brayden will put himself to sleep for naps and most nights, unless he's absolutely exhausted - then he will fall asleep in your arms (I love it)!

Remember how I mentioned he's now pulling himself up on things? Look what happened one night!

He was so proud of himself, too! Needless to say, he was confined to baby jail the following day!

Whoops! :) Sorry baby! 

Brayden LOVES to feed himself small finger foods! His favorites still include puffs and yogurt bites.

For Christmas, he received a walker which was a huge hit! He loves to zoom all over the house and explore new areas in it! 

I also can't forget about Mickey Mouse. Y'all...don't mess with the kid when Mickey is on! He's a hard core Mickey fan! 

Babbling in his baby language is another thing Brayden loves to do and it ranges anywhere from a whisper to a squeal.

A few additional likes include:
  • Toys that light up
  • His Wubba-Nub
  • Playing peek-a-boo and patty cake
  • The dogs
  • Meal times
  • Bath time
  • Pushing buttons
  • Going outside (especially when the door initially opens)
  • The wind
  •  Walks/runs in the jogging stroller
  • Being put on an adult's shoulders
A few dislikes include:
  • Wet or dirty diapers
  • Being confined to one area (like the jumper)
  • When I leave the room he's in
  • Sitting still too long 

This upcoming month has so many exciting things like Brayden's first race at Disney as well as his first haircut (also at Disney), not to mention his very first Disney trip! I am so excited and can't wait to spend time with my little man at my happy place! 

This is such a fun age and we truly are enjoying our sweet little happy, smiley, baby boy! :)


Thanks again for following along in our journey! We appreciate you and your support!


  1. Brayden just keeps getting cuter and cuter! Have you started planning his birthday party yet?

    1. Oh yes! We are going with a red/black/yellow Mickey Mouse theme! :)

  2. Careful! He'll become Houdini and escape from the crib! Does the mattress lower so it's harder to stand up and get out?

    1. Yeah...that's what happened in the second picture. The mattress is lowered and he definitely can't get out now! I call it "baby jail"! Haha!
