At 10 months, Pickle:
~ has just learned to clap (“paki paki”) and will bang his hands on the nearest object (table, floor, toy) on command
~ loves to play peek-a-boo, especially when hiding himself (although he’s so eager to be found that we often don’t get a chance to say, “Where’s…” before he’s shown himself)
~ has five teeth (two on the top, three on the bottom)
~ can push himself onto all fours, and rocks back and forth, but is more likely to go backwards and is a long way off crawling yet
~ will look at Daddy and his brother when asked where they are. Me? I’m just that nameless entity that just “is” right now!
~ has started to ask for “muh” when eating
~ is still a voracious (and often ferocious!) breastfeeder who shows no signs of dropping any feed (which is just fine by me)
~ loves to laugh, especially when watching Daddy tickling his brother
~ has a very erratic sleep pattern at night; some nights he wakes once, other nights he wakes three or four times. Sigh.
~ still smiles openly at people, and is very social around other children and babies
