Daniel is 10 months old!



Can you believe that in two months, our baby will ONE YEAR OLD?!?!? Can you believe it?!? As I prepare these posts for him every month, I am never not amazed how the time really does fly.

So, let’s get to it!

Our baby in a word: STANDING!

won’t exactly cruise yet, but it getting so close I can barely take it.


Fun things about Daniel

  • He pulls himself up on anything study enough to support his weight.
  • He is still maintaining the “army crawl” but he will get on his knees to inch himself closer to the things that he wants.
  • he is partial to crawling to the bathroom.
    • he LOVES to look behind doors
  • He does everything it seems with his index finger.
  • He gives hugs and kisses. (if course with an open mouth)
  • he is very very curious, so staying in my arms for very long is rare.
  • He is very happy in the mornings.
  • He is JABBERING A LOT NOW. Using different noises and sounds. (see video at the bottom of the post)
    • He says: ‘dadadadaaadddaaa” and it melts my heart. His “mamamamamamamam” days are seldom.
  • A not so fun tidbit of Daniel, but I think it’s just apart of his personality, is that he STILL cries when I walk out of the room in our house. Both Dennis and I always get a whimper. He LOVES PEOPLE!
    • The grocery store and shopping malls are his play ground. He LOVES to make conversation with the people.
  • he still loves to play with anything real. (remote, phone, iPod)
  • a thing we learned last night at dinner when an older song came on was that he likes to dance! He was eating his dinner and started to bounce in a dance like way when it came on. It was sooo cute, and it made us both chuckle. I was amazed. I guess all this crazy dancing I have been doing is finally paying off! Smile 



Weight: I am guessing a full 20 pounds if not more.

Height: I don’t know. He was 50th percentile for height at his 9-month check up

Diapers: Size 3

Clothes: 9 months and up to 12 depending on type of clothing.

Teeth: 2 bottom, and 2 top have broken through but are not obvious to sigh yet.


Nursing & Eating:

6:30-7:00a.m.- milk

10:00 a.m. milk and then yogurt afterwards

12:00p.m. snack (cheerios, puffs, yogurt melts, etc)

12:30-1:30- milk (before his nap)

4:00- milk

6:30- dinner. vegetables or whatever we have that he can eat.

7:30-8:00- milk



7:30 p.m.- 6:30a.m. (has been in a habit of waking up around 3am that we are trying to break)

7:30a.m- 10:00a.m. morning nap

1:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m.- afternoon nap

sometimes a cat nap in the evening, but not often

7:30 p.m. bedtime


I know this is not a routine of mine, but I thought I was add some annoying things about Daniel:

  • he cries when you stop the car
  • he cries when you leave the room
  • he is a light, easily woken sleeper
  • he whimpers when you walk in his room with him (I guess he things he is going to bed?)
  • he gets bored with his toys easily (which I realize is my fault)
  • I know he can’t help it, but I don’t love his cowlick.

I still thank the Lord every day that I have this precious child, cowlick and all, and am beyond blessed to call motherhood my profession. Love you Daniel.

Kennedy Family Sneak Peek



           Lotsa’ sneak peeks available at     



I know that I have missed the opportunity to update you all as these have happened! I have been EXTREMELY busy with lots of things on my to-do list which has consequently caused the blog to suffer. But, today, during play time, I took the opportunity to catch Daniel playing!


as you can see, he is pulling up on furniture, window seals, doors, and his stand up toys!








he is sticking true to his “army crawl” even though he can do it the ‘real’ way. Lots of milestones, but I will save it for his 10 month appointment soon! Smile
