Rex is 10 Months Old!

Rex is 10 months old! Hooray. His first big and obvious news is that he finally got his glasses. He's done really well with them so far and as long as we keep his hands away for the first few minutes he wears them he'll leave them alone...until they get dirty or crooked, which happens a lot.  His eye hasn't made huge progress, but it also hasn't deteriorated which is good news. We've resumed his patching and that in combination with his glasses will hopefully give him the best vision he's had so far!
 He is mobile in every sense of the word right now. He crawls everywhere (even up stairs!) and pulls himself to stand whenever humanly possible. He thinks my hair is the perfect hold to use when trying to stand. He lets go and will stand on his own for a few seconds at a time, but hasn't yet tried to walk. He's so happy to be mobile and get where he wants.
 He is a great eater. He loves macaroni and cheese, chicken nuggets, smoothies, corn, rice, black beans, and fresh fruit, to name a few. He is happiest with a snack in his hand! He falls in the 80% for weight and 85% for height.
 He has developed an attachment to Lightning McQueen and will often be seen with one clutched in each fist. He's also started protesting his brothers taking things from him with a high pitched scream. He loves baths and swimming pools and chasing his brothers.
We love you Rex! Happy 10 months!

Those glasses are adorable! I hope it all works toward better progress on the eyesight.

Congrats on finally getting a nonpicky eater. Do you remember "Seven Silly Eaters" you bought for my kids years ago? I love that book. Maybe you should reread it.
