Roxas is a whole 10 months old. Double digits. Only two more months and we will be blowing out a candle for his first birthday! I've already started planning his birthday party. Yeah, I know I'm a little ridiculous but it's going to be an awesome party.
I'm amazed at how much has changed with him in just the past month. At the beginning of nine months Roxas could hardly crawl and now he is speeding all over the house, standing up on his own for a few seconds, cruising around on any surface he can reach. He talks up a storm and we are starting to be able to understand what he is saying a little better. His favorite word is "doggie" which comes out as either "doggie" "gee" or "dah Dah!" He says "dada" "mama" and something that sounds like grandma but I'm still not sure about it. He is really interested in his surroundings and toys now. He loves to play with us. One of his favorite games is putting things in other things, then taking them out and handing them to us.
He still only has two teeth. Poor thing gets teeth that start to try and come through but never quite make it to the surface. He just gets these big bumps on his gums and then they go away after a week or so. He is just so miserable when this happens I feel terrible for him. Otherwise he is just the happiest little boy on Earth. Except when I won't let him pound on my laptop, or climb the lamp, or eat dog food.
I can't wait to see what this new year brings and I'm very excited about some of the plans we've made for later this year. I truly hope 2013 brings us as much happiness as 2012 did. Roxas is the highlight of my day, usually, and I love being a stay at home mom with him. I get to see so much that I would probably miss otherwise. School is starting very soon so things are going to get crazy again but then we get the whole summer together to go swimming and have a blast. Here's to the new year!
