Happy 10th month birthday, Vito!

As I write this, you are lying next to me, sound asleep. When I look down at you, I realize how quickly you’ve grown, how tall you’ve become and how active you are. I remember this time last year, when you were still inside that bump that comprised the most of me; you were already so fidgety then.

Are you really so big already? When I see you crawl, stand yourself up against the sofa or playpen, roll along in your walker, I sometimes have to stop and take it all in slowly. Sometimes I find it hard to believe that you were a tiny little bundle only months ago, helpless and needing me 24/7. Today, you are coming into your own, with every little antic, with every milestone you reach. Pretty soon, you’ll be walking around by yourself, and I’ll wonder what happened to that chubby little “boom-boom” baby who always needed to be carried.

I’m preparing myself for the days when you will want to escape from my arms more than you’ll want to be in them. It’ll just be a matter of time before you’re chatting — you say ever so many things now! I love your little voice when you speak, especially in the mornings when you suddenly babble upon waking up. This will always be one of my fondest memories of you.

These past ten months, I’ve seen you change and grow into a smart, sweet, observant and clever little boy. Yes, you are a little boy, but you will always be my precious little baby.

Happy birthday, little boy. I love you so very much.

Love,

Mommy

Vito had his second dose of the Pneumonia vaccine. During the check-up, he showed Dr. Neri that he could stand with assistance, and during his check-up, he behaved very well.  As usual, he took the shot very well, only crying for a few seconds when he felt the prick. Other than that, the doctor commented that he was one intelligent baby!

Here are Vito’s stats today:

Age: 9 months and 4 weeks (He’ll be 10 months on the 8th of September!)

Head to toe length: 75

Weight: 8.5 kilos

Constitution: Vito had a cold a few weeks ago, so we postponed his second dose of the pneumonia vaccine until he got better.  .

Development:

Foods: Vito is now eating a full range of proteins, carbs, and fiber-rich foods. He likes fish a lot, as well as chicken and beef. Sorry, no pork for this baby; Mommy finds pork meat too “dirty” unless it’s organic. He likes fruits, especially blueberries and peaches (together!). He also loves his mixed veggies with soup. In the past month, Lolo’s been giving him graham crackers in between or during meals, which he enjoys.

Milk: Care of fab Mommy Marts, of course!

Supplements: Ceelin (Ascorbic Acid), Tiki-Tiki (Multivitamins), Moringa (malunggay extract)

Dental: Vito now has 6 little teeth! He also loves toothbrushing time.  (Yay!)

Some people have commented that Vito’s rather “plateaued” at his current height and weight. He is tall for his age, and he’s been maintaining his weight at 8.5 kgs, which is still in the weight range of his current age. Don’t worry, people. He’s so active and sweaty all the time, it’s nothing to worry about that he isn’t as chubby as he once was.

How old is Vito?
