A Very Belated 10 Month Birthday Post!

Daniel Bing turned 10 months about a week ago.  We were in Atlanta visiting my home for a week and celebrated Mother's Day there, as well.  Daniel rocked the ATL.  He hung out with his grandparents (Nana & Papa G) every day while I worked and then partied over the weekend with his whole family.

The past month has gone by extremely fast and I can only blame my current travel schedule for that.  In fact, I honestly feel like I missed the entire 9th month of my son's life because I was on the road every week during the month.  I have 2 more weeks of travel and then I'm considering myself "grounded" until the end of the summer.  I miss my guys!
Here they are in all of their glory!
While not to much "major" stuff has happened between months 9 & 10,  I will say that Daniel is up to a few amazing new tricks:
- He loves his tooth and plays with it a lot (yes, 10 months and one tooth)
- Waving (goodbye, we think... sometimes he just waves)
- Mama and Dada are now regular "words" but he doesn't direct those words towards us
- The little dude is STRONG.  Honestly, how can someone who weighs 21 pounds be so damn strong?
- Crusing (slowly but surely)
- Climbing up stairs (he's basically become a pro even in our own brownstone which has super steep and narrow stairs)
- He's getting really good at singing with me
- He is SUPER smiley and giggly.  This is new for Daniel and may become it's own blog post
- He now owns 3 pairs of shoes
- His poops STINK (sorry, but I am trying to detail his life, you know!)
- He wants to eat and drink everything that we are eating and drinking.  This is good until he projectile vomits in a restaurant (apparently my sister did this all the time, too)
- When I tap my hand against his mouth, he says "ahhhh" and it makes a funny sound (learned this from Christine & Barrett and I have always looked forward to it!)
- Flirts HARD CORE
- Dances kind of like I did when I would go to Phish shows in college (he shakes his head "no) and kind of grooves

My little man is getting so big and I used to be really scared of this.  I used to think that the bigger he got, the less of my baby he would be.  But it's the opposite - I fall more in love with him as the days go on because I get to know him so much better.

Daniel's 10 month birthday fell one day before Mother's Day (obviously my first) and I feel honored to be this little man's mommy.  I hope that I keep improving with time and make him proud of me - just like I will always be of him!

I've taken so much video in the last month that I've tried to put together a little montage.  I hope it works and hope you enjoy (sorry if it's too long and excuse all of the nudity!)

Once again, Happy Birthday my little boy!
