10 Months with Henry

Happy 10 months, Henry – you’ve reached double digits!

Man, is this little guy moving. For the past month, he’s been getting faster at crawling all the time. Our apartment is just not big enough to satisfy his need for speed, so we’re very lucky to have an atrium and playroom downstairs. He’s in the children’s playroom in the photo above – a room with cushy carpeting and lots of toys. It’s so perfect for those times in the day where you have already been on 3 walks, you’re out of naps, and there’s still an hour before bedtime!

However, crawling has taken a backseat to STANDING. Henry loves to pull himself up on everything he can. The coffee table, the wall unit, hinges on doors, his crib, windows… He has been having a hard time napping because all he wants to do is stand or bounce up and down while standing in his crib! Sure, he’s fallen asleep sitting up before, but standing is a whole other story. For the past few weeks, when he actually takes a second nap, it feels like winning the lottery!

Speaking of sleep, it’s been so challenging for the past month! We had to sleep train him for the second time a few weeks ago when his pediatrician pointed out that the reason he doesn’t want to eat solids is because he’s snacking 1-3 times a night. Also, he now has 6 teeth and drinking milk all night is not good for them.

The first time we sleep trained him, he was 4 months old and it only took 2 nights. This time, it took 5. He is sleeping through the night now – he’s just waking up anywhere between 5:00 and 6:00 am. 6:00 is like sleeping in now! (UGH). Here he is, yawning with his Dad and Grandpa Storch!

Life is just so exciting!

We’ve taken the East River Ferry to DUMBO a few times where we check out a very cool nautical-themed playground between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, visit a bookstore, get chocolate, and found out that Shake Shack has a stroller express line!

The ferry is a GREAT place to meet ladies, or so Henry thinks. Also a great place to see some very big splashes out the window.

As Henry gets older and eats more solids, I’ve been able to leave him for longer periods of time. I had my first client meeting in the city a few weeks ago, and on Saturday, Nick and I actually had a sitter put him to bed (his first time without me!) so we could go to a wedding.

His current favourite foods include yogurt, strips of whole wheat toast, Cheerios, rice crackers, multigrain cereal with banana, apple slices, and sweet potatoes. Brooklyn Label is still his favourite restaurant.

I hope I don’t look too tired ;)

    Hey Christina – yay for Henry’s 10th month (almost 11th now I think!). I noticed in one of the pics you have the Boon sippy cup for Henry. I have the same one but it seems like one needs a lot of force to sick out the water! Did Henry have a hard time with the cup?
