Grayson at 10 Months Old!!

Our silly monkey is 10 months old! I am so thankful to have such a good & happy baby! I love his personality...he thinks he is so funny :) He is beginning to show a huge range of emotions...fear, sadness, happiness, and excitement. When he gets excited, he will straighten his arms & legs, cinch his fists & make a funny face. Grayson is crawling everywhere & is all over the place!!! He is very curious & he's getting into everything!! We have to do a lot of chasing & redirecting when he does something he shouldn't...he crawls really fast. He wants to do things on his own! He is an expert babbler & even babbles with inflection. He likes to "dance" & bops when he hears music! He is becoming stronger & stronger each day. He uses furniture to pull himself to a standing position...then he just plops down on his bottom & thinks it's so funny! And he started free-standing by himself a few days ago {4.12}. He went through a phase where he was difficult to feed, he would put his hands in his mouth then rub his hands on his face & in his hair. We have tried several flavors of Gerber 3rd Foods but he doesn't like the tiny little chunks in it. Grayson is finally sleeping through the night again {after 6 weeks of G waking up 1-2 times every night, this Mama was exhausted!!}...separation anxiety is the devil!! He just needed a night away at Mimi & Papa's house :) He is back to his normal bedtime {4.7}...no crying or waking up in the middle of the night! He did it all by himself...I'm so glad I didn't have to go through the "crying it out" part this time. Thank you Jesus! Then, the teething started! Grayson has been so fussy in the afternoons the past 3 days. Poor baby! On a good note, he finally got his 1st tooth {3.19}!!
 Check out his tooth on the bottom...if you look closely you can see the one coming in next to it :)
 He has amazing eyes :)
 Ok Mommy...enough pictures! Bless his heart!

-He is very good at using his pincher grasp {picking up puffs & putting them in his mouth}

-He holds the bottle by himself {which helps me out so much}
-He definitely understands more of what we are saying to him {If I ask him "do you want some water/juice? He will stop what he is doing & crawl towards the fridge or he will reach his arms out toward the sippy cup}
