I just cannot believe how time is passing for our son. While people who see him every week keep remarking on how big he’s getting, it still seems unreal to me how he’s growing and changing. This description cracks me up as we’ve had to say no to him a lot. He really enjoys going to things he shouldn’t including the cat’s toys, the clear panel on the under television case (most likely attracted by his reflection), the blinds, and more, he’s great at finding things he should stay away from – perhaps that’s part of their appeal that they are forbidden.

Today William is 10 months old. In honor of this milestone, I sent him to daycare in a onesie from the hospital of his birth. He has such a sunny disposition that even when I stopped Mirabel from finishing his morning bottle to take this, he soon was all smiles.

With William being a day away from being 10 months old, it was definitely time to give him some soft whole foods cut into baby manageable pieces. Candy tried some strawberries with him yesterday. At first he found them too tart, so she heated them up a bit to bring out their natural sugars and he liked them more. So I brought more cut up strawberries for him for daycare.

I know William likes exploring every bit of the floor area at the church nursery. So it was a great day for him to be sent with his new shoes. I was able to put them on him without him fussing too much while at home and they stayed so he could show them off to the nursery teachers.

I’d been told by Mirabel and Candy that it was time to get William some shoes, both to help him as he tries to walk and as sometimes he goes outside where the pavement can be rough on feet. So I headed to Buy Buy Baby so we could try some on. I was delighted to see Joyce who helped when I went to make my baby registry. I had happened to have William covered in his stroller, so I asked her to guess if I’d had a boy or girl. She guessed boy, then I uncovered him and introduced her to my son.

One of the most amazing parts of watching a baby grow and develop has been hearing the bits of words Williams has said. His first was dadada then bababa. For this reason dada (dad/daddy) and baba (bottle) have been our prediction for what his first true word will be.

Today William and I arrived at Almaden Hills United Methodist Church early to help with the set up for the backpack stuffing for National Night Out. We ended up being so early that we were there before the set up, so we went to visit with Children’s Ministry Director Peggy Joy. Peggy even had a had for him as he was too young to attend Vacation Bible School a few weeks ago and get his own hat. Peggy admired the quilt I brought with him, which had been made by the Quilting Group of my church.
