Cohen: 10 Months Old

At 10 months, Cohen is a very fast crawler and is pulling himself up on furniture. He now as 7 teeth (the top 4 and a 3rd bottom one all came in at the same time) and is enjoying finger foods more, especially Cheerios and canned green beans. Some of his other favorite foods are bananas, plain yogurt, blueberries, peas, black beans, applesauce, and chicken. We've discovered he does not like cottage cheese or pumpkin, but otherwise he's not too picky.  He's drinking all formula now and has even started using a soft-top sippy cup.

He has an easy laugh and is ticklish on this feet, legs, and tummy. He also loves when you hide around the corner and jump out at him.

Besides laughing, most of his sounds are either babble or lion roars. He can sometimes roar on cue and will also roar at little animals if he's playing with them or randomly in the carseat. He hasn't made any distinguishable "mama" or "dada" in reference to us yet, but it seems like it will be soon.

Cohen likes to clap and will clap and dance when music comes on. He can also do "So Big" and wave bye-bye or hello. He loves when we do patty-cake, especially the rolling part.

Other favorite things are watching Ryan, having someone chase him down the hall, trying to get into Nika's dogfood or the piano cabinet, pulling himself up to play piano, and sitting on a cardboard box that holds his Color-pillar toys.

He is getting better at sleeping through the night, waking up to cry a few times, but usually either going back down himself or with just a little soothing by rubbing his back. He doesn't often fall alseep in my arms anymore, but it's pretty fun to cuddle when he does.

Cohen seems to have grown up so fast recently going from sitting and being spoon-fed to crawling/pulling up and feeding himself. We love watching him learn and grow each day!
