Aiden {10 Months}

My little man is officially 10 months old today. We are in Double digits!!! This last month was huge because Aiden finally started crawling forward and is now all over the place. He loves chasing the cats around and is drawn to any and every cord in the house. Yikes! He also started pulling up on things on his own. This kid loves to be standing and no longer enjoys laying down in one place making changing his diaper and this month's photo shoot quite interesting.
One of my favorite things Aiden started doing this month is dancing. Whenever he hears his favorite songs he looks at us and starts bopping up and down and waving his arms. It is the cutest thing ever. We have dance parties often in the Renner house these days and we break it down every time the Thomas the train theme song comes on.
This month Aiden surprised us with what we are calling his first words! One of his favorite books is Brown Bear, Brown Bear and we read it to him all.the.time! Well all of the sudden Aiden decided he wanted to say Brown Bear back to us. I was shocked and was able to get it on video...you can see it over on my Instagram account. I've probably watched it 100 times already! We are blown away by his smarts and how much he wants to talk to us!
A few stats about Aiden at ten months:

Weight: 18.1 pounds

Height: 27 inches (My little man is only in the 6th percentile for height, but at least he's proportional...says the pediatrician. Haha.

Size Clothes: 9 months

Sleeping: We had a few glorious nights in a row where Aiden decided to sleep from 8-5. Wow. Drew and I didn't know what to do with ourselves and were feeling pretty great, but then those precious nights were over. He isn't sleeping terribly, but wakes up a few times a night and can't soothe himself back to sleep, which I'm learning is totally my fault. #momfail Oh well. I'm currently reading Elizabeth Pantley's The No-Cry Sleep Solution and am trying a few of her tips. One that has been working for us so far is having Aiden sleep with a "lovey." He now cuddles with his fox (pictured above) when he sleeps. It is so adorable to see your baby cuddling with a stuffed animal. Aw.

Eating: This month Aiden tried scrambled eggs for the first time. He loves them and now eats them with his oatmeal for breakfast. I'm still making most of his food, but he is also eating Puffs now and loves the pouches from Ella's Kitchen. I have made a few baby approved meals that I'll be sharing soon. (Lentil and Brown Rice Soup and Rice Pudding)

Random stuff only parents want to know:

Nicknames: Baby Hunny, Beebo, Buster, Love Bug, Pumpkin.

Likes: Blowing bubbles in his water cup, barking at Trigger, snuggling with his fox stuffed animal, SAYING "Brown Bear!" Chasing cars around the house, Bananas, Puffs

Dislikes: Sitting still, Being dropped off in the nursery at church.

Isn't it crazy how virtually all newborns look the same and then around the 8=9 month mark they start looking more and more like little people? Aiden is such a little munchkin, and it's so easy to see his resemblance to his Mom and Dad! :)
