Will at 10 months!

Ten months!  Already?  Really?  I am definitely wondering how in the world could my little baby be turning into a little boy so quickly!  This month has been very busy.  The day after Will turned 10 months, we hopped on an airplane and headed to Seattle for an Alaskan cruise with my entire family (more on that in a separate post at some point).  We were gone for 11 days/10 nights!  That is a LONG time to be pack in a suitcase that is going to be weighed at the airport and to try and think of EVERYTHING that you might possibly need for the next 11 days (you can't run to Wal-Greens when your on a cruise).  Will, however, did GREAT!  I'm not sure why I was anxious about it because he's been a great traveler on our previous trips.
I am starting to see his little personality more and more!  He's such a happy little guy and for the most part is pretty "go with the flow."  However, he does have his moments when he will throw little fits if he wants something.  He is CONSTANTLY moving!  No wonder he only weighs in the 5th percentile.  Everything that he eats gets burned off immediately!  Even when he's sitting in his high chair, his legs are kicking the entire time.  Whew!  It's exhausting watching him.  
Since we don't get to go to the doctor at 10 months, I'm not sure exactly how much he weighs.  Historically, he's gained about 1 lb per month.  So, I'm estimating that he weighs around 18 pounds.

At 10 months:

~Sleeps from 7pm-7am.  
~Drink 6 oz in the morning and 4 oz at each other feeding.
~Has 3 teeth on the bottom with one on the top just starting to maybe come through?
~Still does the "army" crawl, but will start on his hands and knees and go about 4-5 moves forward before he drops to his tummy and takes off.  He crawls all over the house and if I move from one room to another, he will chase after me.
~Is doing much better eating table foods!  He LOVES bananas, green beans, carrots, guacamole, goldfish, cheerios and puffs.  He still likes his baby oatmeal with baby fruit in the mornings and will occasionally eat some other baby foods, too.  We go back and forth between baby food and table food.  
~Still takes 2 naps per day that are usually 1-2 hours each.
~Is having some separation issues....he's becoming a little bit more clingy and is having issues in the church nursery. 
~Has just started (at 10 1/2 months) to pull up.  He hasn't figured out how to move his feet underneath him and will get "stuck" with his legs spread apart while standing.

 Trying to take pictures is getting a little more difficult....

Love you little buddy!
