you are now 10 months old. just two months shy of being one year old. when i think of it like that, tears well up in my eyes. how can you already be so close to 1? the best and worst part of being a parent is watching your baby grow. i want you to stay this age forever, but i also get so excited when you learn something new. it’s a catch 22 for sure. you are getting more and more active. i can hardly keep up with you sometimes. i love how adventurous you are. not much scares you, and that scares me haha. i’m not a risk taker, so maybe you’ll be enough of one for the both of us. you are hilarious. i find myself laughing at you a lot. you make the craziest faces and do the funniest things that make me laugh so hard my sides hurt.
