10 months old!

The months seem to be flying by faster as time goes on.  Our little guy turned 10 months old on Saturday, which was the day we had friends over to celebrate Rich's and my birthday.

Our little guy is now sleeping through the night (with the help of a little Ferberesque sleep training a few weeks ago).  He eats almost anything, except baby food, including cat food and dirt, which I try to discourage.  He loves thai food, macaroni and cheese, chicken soup, and peaches and other stone fruit more than anything. Favorite activities include being pushed really high on the swings at the playground and going down slides. He also still loves being tossed in the air, but it's not as easy as it used to be.  We have adventure baby!

Dylan is getting efficient at scooting around on his butt, thus ending the days of just plunking him down with some toys and knowing he won't get himself into any trouble.  I don't know why he's particularly drawn to things that are dangerous, disgusting, or breakable. Dylan can also pull himself up and cruise around, vastly increasing the amount of the house that he can get to.

Our Birthday Horoscope:

From The Globe and Mail:

Does it matter that you can’t seem to get a handle on the meaning of your existence? No it does not. What matters is that you always follow the little voice that comes from your heart. Follow it this year and you’ll find all the meaning you need.

Very appropriate for Rich's 42nd birthday.

It's been a lovely day so far, and we will shortly head out (sans Dylan, who will be at home with a babysitter) to a nice dinner.
