10 Months

Today Eli is 10 months old.  He had his 9 month well baby check up today and weighed 21 lbs. 8 oz. and is 28.7 in. long.  He is in the 50th percentile for both weight and height.

Eli wears mostly 9 month clothes but already fits in the 12 month outfits as well. 

He has learned to wave hello/goodbye but doesn't do it consistently.  I can't remember if I've already said this, but he has known the sign for "more" for quite a while now.  Today he pulled up using the side of the refrigerator, which is the first time he has pulled up on a vertical surface.  He loves to open and close doors of any kind.  He also likes to dance and recently learned some new moves from one of our great friends!

He still hasn't met a stranger.  About a month ago we were visiting one of Doug's cousins in the hospital (she had just had a baby) and Eli couldn't come back to the room.  He stayed with Doug's uncle, who he had never met, for the whole time we were visiting and I was told he didn't fuss at all. 

This picture is from today.  He's holding his favorite blankie, one we just got recently.  It's a smaller version of the Aden + Anais blankets we already had, called an Issie, and it has giraffes on it.  He has loved it since the day we got it and it is so much easier for him to manage than the large 40 x 40 blankets. 

We are still waiting on tooth #8.  It's been right there on the surface for over a month now and I will be so glad when it's through.

Eli is such a joy in our lives.  It's hard to imagine how we ever lived without him!
