This past month has been an interesting one, I feel like we are dipping our toes into toddler territory sometimes. He isn't walking yet but he can really get wherever he wants. It is weird, he used to always be happy playing beside me but then all the sudden he has stopped being happy beside me and wants to explore everywhere he should not be. Then there is the tantrums... oh the fun. You are 10 months old, how can you possibly have that much emotion?
He does pretty good with independent play. We set him in front of his toys and (sometimes) he will play happily for 15-20 minutes. I always wonder what he is thinking when he is playing though. He just moves blocks from one container to another, then occasionally will hold them up in the air and just smile.
The best parts of this month, I love seeing his face light up when he sees people he knows. When he is unsure of a situation or person, he tends to be very stoic and reserved. After he gets to know you , he turns into a smiling, talkative little boy. When his Dad picks him up from the nursery he always gets so excited and happy. The nursery workers comment that they always can tell when Dad walks in. I love watching his silly personality growing.
