...but a whimpering cry calls his predicament to my attention pretty quickly, and he is rescued. Kimble is getting stronger and stronger. He likes to flex his muscles by doing things like push ups. One of these days, he'll get his knees under him, and then off he'll go, crawling everywhere. Until then, he amazes us with his constant push ups.
Kimble still looks just like his daddy. I found this shirt at the store for him, which says "If you think I'm handsome, you should see my daddy". I thought it very fitting.
When Kimble gets excited, he kicks his legs really fast. If he's in his jumper chair, it makes it very difficult to pick him up, because he's jumping so fast. If he's in his crib, his little legs go and go and he's just too cute. Kimble gets excited like this when his Daddy comes home from work. He's so happy to see him!
Kimble spends lots of time on the floor, playing with his toys and rolling around to the edge of the carpet. He likes to pat the wood floors with his hand, and feel the different textures. He has lots of toys to play with, but he's also exploring other things, like chair legs, curtains, cords, and furniture.
I mentioned before that Kimble puts himself to sleep. He's a very good boy at nap time and bedtime. I just lie him down in his crib and he turns on his side and goes right to sleep. He loves his binkie, and sucking on that helps him go to sleep. He wakes up once a night now, around 4am, to eat, and sometimes will sleep through the night, although it's not often. I am enjoying bigger chunks of sleep, which has been lovely and refreshing for me.
Kimble and I have a great time together during the day, with Georgie too. We play a lot; get lots of snuggles and kisses, and are content to just hang out with each other. Kimble likes to watch some cartoons with Georgie, and he also likes it when she turns on music and dances around him. His little legs kick and kick and he is so happy watching her.
Kimble eats just about anything we eat. He loves spaghetti and refried beans. He eats graham crackers and dry cereal and even likes to drink water from a cup, although he still won't take a sippy cup, and if I give him a bottle, he just plays with it instead of sucking on it. He still breastfeeds just as much as he did before, and I don't see it ending anytime soon. I think that depends on him learning to accept a bottle or a sippy cup in the near future.
Happy 10 month birthday my sweet little Kimble.
