James is 10 months! He is getting so big and is now so, so bald. There are just some little wisps of hair around his head with a little tuft in the back, as Zach says, “He has some hair behind him.” His eyes are similar to the color of his number. They look brown at first but really they are a blue/grey with brown flecks in them. Especially compared to Zach’s dark brown eyes, they do not look brown.
He is babbling and saying “uh oh” when something is dropped, when he poops or sees my parents little white dog. I don’t really understand why he calls Weeza “uh oh” but it is amusing. He likes to yell “Daaaaa” at both Norman and Alex. He waves bye-bye and blows kisses and can say “bye-bye” but he prefers to just stare at people when they leave.
James can’t quite kick his leg out to fully crawl yet, but he is doing the army crawl all over the hard wood. He gets a bit frustrated and starts whining when he has to cross carpet. Alex really thinks he is more aggressive than Zach, as when he really wants something he does a quick swipe and grab. We don’t remember Zach being quite so quick or grabby. But still I don’t know that I agree.
However….I did get a note on his 2nd day of daycare regarding him “hugging/grabbing” his new friends. Hmmmm.
His two bottom teeth are through and he is using them to eat everything. With that quick swipe and grab, he gets things that he should not into his mouth. So he has eaten shrimp, french fries, mac and cheese, chicken and grilled cheese. The only thing he still does not like are peaches. Fresh or canned he wants nothing to do with them. He would, however, eat bananas all day long.
