Baby Spake is ten months old

We're having a quick break from beauty today because my little squidge is ten months old! I've been an emotional wreck the last week because ten months for me is pretty much the entire time I carried him and we're edging even closer to his first birthday which I'm not emotionally prepared for either. People always say that the months fly by and they really do. I say this every month but Joshua has changed so much in just four weeks. Arran and I have spent more time saying "Omg did you just see that!" than anything else this month because he is just growing up so fast.

That pesky tooth I've been on about for two months has finally cut! The other six came through so quickly so I feel like we've been sat just waiting for this one and with number eight just starting to peek through, there's no rest yet! We have four top teeth and three bottom for the moment and I can confirm they're all very sharp. My wrist took a good chomping this month and I was sporting baby teeth marks for much longer than expected. Good job he's cute eh?

We've tried lots of new foods this month, I think I've really found my confidence with feeding him and not worrying about him choking so I've been trying him on anything and everything. He wolfed down Arran's delicious veggie chilli last night and he loves blueberries, kiwis and Marmite toast. He also snuck away a party ring at my Dad's birthday this month and he enjoyed a dairy free cupcake at his little baby friend's first birthday party. I now can't have my breakfast without sharing it with him and he's so bloody quick he has it off my plate before I realise. A lovely mum friend helped me out with some dairy free baby ideas recently so banana pancakes are next along with some other yummy treats.

Sleep took a downward spiral this month until the last five days. Between the heat, teething and a leap, it's been hard work and once all that settled down and it still wasn't getting better we were a bit lost until a chat with a friend over mattresses. She had mentioned how changing the mattress side had made a big difference so after another night of barely any sleep we panic bought a brand new mattress and he's slept so much better since. I personally can't tell the difference between them but we're a week in now and that's the only change we've made so I don't think it's a coincidence. Fingers crossed it continues because it is so nice being able to sleep again especially as he's always been a pretty good sleeper so it's not something we've had to deal with.

Baby classes are all done so I'm going to be spending the next couple of weeks looking for something new for us to try. In place of our classes we've been meeting with friends and their babies most weeks which has been so nice as I finally feel like I've found some mum friends which get me. We have a few days out planned too which certainly makes all the difference.

Development wise we've had crawling, walking around the sofa while he holds on and this week he's started letting go so he stands on his own for a few seconds until he plonks on his bum. He's going to be tearing around in no time! He's also started jibbering away and has started say hello whenever anyone is on the phone which makes my heart melt every time I hear him. Other than that it's a lot of babababa, dadadadada and nunununun which is just as cute.

We're off on our first weekend away as family next weekend which should be interesting. We're heading up to London and we've chosen the hotel so we can take him swimming which I'm very excited about as it will be the first time. Away from the prep machine however should be interesting....
