10 months (and 1 day)

Asher turned 10 months old yesterday.
I know, I can't believe it either.
At 10 months old, Asher, you weigh right at 20lbs. You are about 29 inches long and are wearing 12 month clothes. The last month has been a rough one for you. Even though you had tubes put in last month, you still keep getting ear infections. You also had pink eye and a terrible cold that you can't seem to get rid of. Through it all, you're still as sweet as ever. You smile, laugh and are very easy going. Your sleep habits aren't the best but it's understandable with how sick you've been. Being sick also took a toll on your appetite and for almost 2 weeks, you've barely eaten and would only take your bottle. But the last couple of days your appetite is picking up. Which is so good to see. Your bottom teeth are getting bigger but there's no sign of any other teeth yet. But it hasn't stopped you from learning how to eat Cheerios!
You are saying Da-da and Ma-Ma. You say e-Ma, which is totally different sounding than when you say Ma-ma. Whenever you make the Ba-ba sound, Dougie and Caleb both claim it as "Bubba."
You're not crawling yet and don't really show much interest in trying. You do not like to be on your tummy unless it's when you're going to sleep. But I'm not worried, I know you'll get there in your own time.
This past weekend, we had some snow and even though you didn't get outside to play in it, you did get your first taste of snow ice cream! Mommy gave you the first bite and then Emma took over. Needless to say, you LOVED it.

Asher, I love you so much! Love, Mommy
