10 months and Counting!

Wow--time continues to fly by! Tucker is only 2 months away from being the big 1 year old! We cannot believe it! We are already thinking about his first birthday party! Tucker has continued to surprise us everyday with the things he does and the things he has picked up on! Here are a few things Tucker is doing:

-Pulling up on everything
-Learning how to open up drawers and cabinets...and then pull everything out!
-Walking while holding on--cruising!
-Randomly as of Sunday his wave became violent and he started waving at everyone!
-Says dada and mama--for everything!
-Smiles and squints his eyes and scrunches his nose
-Started eating "real foods"--mango, bread, cheerios, puffs, etc!
-Daddy made the mistake of teaching him how to turn on the bathtub--so he crawls quickly to the bathtub EVERYTIME he is in our bathroom and turns on the water
-Standing up in his bed when we come to get him
-Unfolding all the clothes that Mommy just folded-haha! He does this often.
-Sits up really well in the bathtub without Mom being extremely nervous
-Sitting up a little easier from laying down--but really only after he has pulled himself at least to his knees or has pulled himself up to stand up and then sits down (it is so cute to see little ones sit down from standing-they just fall to their booty) :)
-Rolling his tongue (like when you roll your r's if you speak Spanish)--SO cute!
-Loves "patty cake" and "itsy bitsy spider"
-Seems to recognize animal sounds that I repeatedly make (he smiles when I ask him about the animal sounds)
-When prompted and helped a little can give a high five---hopefully we can teach him "guns up" real soon
ETC! The list goes on!

We went to visit Dr. Gray on Monday the 15th and was told he weighed 19.8 lbs. (20th percentile) and was 28.5" long (50th percentile)! Dr. Gray made the comment that his teeth are going to come in any day now! I can definitely tell by the fussiness, drooling, biting EVERYTHING, etc! :)

Besides battling illnesses here and there we are doing great--all of us! We are a little happy family of 3-plus Duke the Dog! Hopefully, soon, we will be making the big move back to Dallas! We are waiting for Grant to find the right job! So, if you have a chance say a prayer for us! I will post pictures soon! We haven't taken many lately! Check Facebook too for pics!
