At this moment: 10 months old

I was just reading through the post I wrote when Ezra reached 8 months (read it HERE) and it seems like he has grown and changed so much in such a short amount of time. I love these posts because they are a great reminder to me of what my little man was like at exactly this age. I know will cherish these posts  and the memories they refresh so much.

So at this moment, right now Ezra is learning to walk, what an amazing thing. He is getting more confident every day. A couple of weeks ago he learnt how to go from sitting to standing by himself, without pulling up on anything. Now he stands up, then picks up the full size Basketball and walks a few steps holding it. I cannot believe it. He is starting to try to walk around instead of crawling, but the most he can do is about ten steps without falling. If he really wants to get somewhere fast, he will still crawl.  I wonder how long it will be until he is just walking everywhere? At least it will save the knees of his pants from becoming worn through!

He now has six teeth, with more coming through, I feel like the next ones aren't coming through in the 'correct' order, it just seems like his whole mouth is in pain. Teething, does it ever end? It feels like it has been consistently happening from about 4 months old.

He just learnt to climb up onto the couch, and thinks it is so great to sit up there next to us, it is so adorable. He loves reading stories, it is the only time he ever sits still, apart from sleeping. He despises wearing shoes, and cries and screams whenever I try, I am hoping we can overcome this soon, the photo above he put up with the shoes, but I took them off about five minutes after the photos were taken, I think he may be a little hippy baby!His laugh and his smile are contagious, he makes me laugh so hard everyday, hasn't done much for my stomach muscles yet though. We are getting the the time where he is really starting to exert his own will and get upset when he can't do what he wants, I know a whole new learning curve is on its way for me.

It is hard to believe my baby is almost a toddler, and how fast this year has gone. I celebrate his achievements like they are my own, and feel it so deep down in my heart when he is hurting or upset, I never knew I could love as much as this. I'll do anything for him, and one little smile just makes me feel like the luckiest person in the world that I get to spend my days with such an amazing little boy.

  2. I never thought he would be walking this early, when so many of my friends babies are only just crawling. Someone pressed fast forward on my baby. Thanks for connecting in blogs and as well as twitter!

  5. So important to capture these moments. Next thing you know, you'll be writing about more teeth coming through and the fact that you have to chase him around everywhere because he's running too fast! What a precious boy you have :)

  11. So adorable. My boy will be 1 year old on Monday :;
    When he started walking at 10 months just like Ezra, he used to scream when I put the shoes on his feet :) It lasted for nearly 2 months, but yesterday he finally started running with his shoes on! :)
