A slight delay in JT's monthly update, sorry! Our ever growing boy turned 10 months on Good Friday- couldn't think of a better way to mark his 1st double digit month :) JT is now about 24 pounds and 29 1/2 inches tall.
John Thomas had a busy month with multiple trips to see Dr. Holzen with ear infections, several medications, shots, and lots of stuff at home to get those ears better! I guess JT needed to be the first to do something in the Apedaile kids at a young age so surgery for ear tubes it was for the little guy! He now gets to have cotton in his ears during bath time, usually not quite this much, but sisters were helping this time:
JT also appears to be the type of child who is going to be a mover and shaker. Unless he's sleeping or drinking his bottle, he is Go, Go, Go! Crawling, cruising, and now beginning to walk everywhere! JT doesn't like to stay put and has many things he needs to explore. There is one thing he will slow down for a few minute for, looking outside our window from our couch. JT loves to stand on the couch and look outside at our front yard and look at the birds, trees, and cars passing by. I think he looks adorable when he's gazing out the window.
With the weather finally warming up this past month, JT has been able to get outside to touch, see, and sometimes taste many different things. He has a great time crawling across the lawn and sometimes just sitting there feeling the grass with his feet and slowly picking at the wildflowers and blades of grass. Fresh eyes exploring his new world!
I am happy to report that JT's drooling has eased up so much that he no longer uses a drool bib! Maybe his wet shirts will be a thing of the past. I think we are not teething until his 1st molars decide to come in- around 12-15 months. So a few months off of teething pain :)
