Malcolm at 10 Months

Malcolm at 10 mo.

He has changed.  A lot.  He laughs at my jokes.  Hide and go seek is still his favourite thing to play, but now he owns it.  He grabs my scarf in both hands and stretches his arms straight over his head trying to hide (which is funny in its own right because his massive head gets in the the way of his relatively stubby uncoordinated arms).  There is nothing more fun that passing a piece of Mega Bloks back and forth while Mommy signs "Thank you."

Walking?  He thinks its for losers.  In fact, standing is for kids who don't know how to scam the game.  Why move when you've got older siblings to get everything for you?  He has taken a little bit of initiative and finally decided some things are worth getting up off his bottom to explore.  His preferred mode is the army crawl, which really seems like the most difficult method of self transportation out there.  His choice.

At his nine month check up, an interesting thing happened: Baby Nevin officially caught up with Baby Malcolm.  Malcolm was 31.5 inches and 23.5 lbs.  When I back-checked (or fact-checked?) Nevin's baby book for his stats, I discovered that they also look identical.  They are my little male matryoshka dolls.

p.s. He loves wiping food in his hair.  I love how his hair looks after I wipe it out of his hair (refer to picture above).
