Life's Journey through pictures & words

Cannon Knox || Ten Months

Loves || Looking at, waving at, and talking to other babies, standing, toilet paper, remotes, phones, cords, the dogs, talking, people, milkies, dancing, music (especially dady's guitar), eating, using a sippy cup, baths, saying "dady"

Hates || Diaper changes-especially first thing in the morning-, getting dressed, and not getting his way.

Clothes || No change here. Cannon is somewhere between 6-12 months in clothing (depending on where they are from, and how many times they have been washed), size 2 in shoes, and size 4 diapers

Weight and Height || I have no idea, but I don't think he has grown much since his last doctors appointment. I'm guessing around 18.5 ish pounds and 28 ish inches in length.

Diet || Cannon nurses 4-5 times a day and eats whatever we are eating for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. He also has one or two snacks during the day.

Teeth || Somehow, Cannon still only has two teeth. I'm not going to lie, I'm somewhat in disbelief on this one. This guy chews on anything and everything,any chance he gets-but our coffee table is his favorite. I'll be shocked if this doesn't change next month.

Health || Thankfully, Cannon is still a very healthy little boy!

Sleep || Cannon has recently started transitioned his nap time. I think he is making his way to one nap a day, rather than two. He is now going down around 11:30 and waking around 1:30 or 2:00. Sometimes he takes a second nap around 4:00 or 4:30. At night, he typically sleeps 10-12 hours.

Mood || He started this past month out as happy as could be, but he moved into a leap about half way through-causing him to be rather moody and whinny. Thankfully, he is transitioning out of that leap, and in a much better mood! It's a win for our entire house!!

Milestones || Cannon is now taking around 10 unassisted steps before falling. He waves, claps, dancing and says "dada/dady," "hey and/or yay," and "bye-bye." Unfortunately, Cannon also learned how to throw himself down on the floor, belly first, and cry in hopes of getting his way. He also blows raspberries in discontentment.

Nicknames || We basically always refer to this kid as Mirany. We're weird.

I am || So happy and so in love with my baby boy! And obviously, I'm in denial that we are getting so close to his first birthday!

Logan is || More in love with Cannon than I ever knew would be possible!

The dogs are || Taking turns loving and loathing Cannon.

What I want to remember || A few mornings ago, I woke up to Cannon having the cutest conversation with himself. Of course it was, "dadada dady dady dada dady." I am really hoping "Mommy" comes out of his mouth soon!!
