My First Birthday Party Pictures

Here I am devouring my very first cupcake! What a sugar rush.

The messier the better!

I had so much fun opening presents.

The best moment of the party was when I opened a card with money in it and waved it around like someone who just won a million dollars.

A picture of me and all my friends that celebrated my very special day with me! Thank you everyone.

Trying out my new toys was so much fun!

Hi, I'm Ten Months Old..

For my first attempt upon turning ten months old was to persuade my dad to let me drive the car. I only got as close as the hood. Oh well..

My newest form of communication is "the point". I grunt and point at whatever I want or wherever I want to go.

This is what we call the hands behind the head Earwicker stance. It's a classic.

As a ten month old, the beach is sure a fun place for me. I get to feel the sand run through my fingers and watch the green algae float in the water where some people swim. Glad my parents only let me swim in the pool!

This is me spending some quality time with my mom. She's great.

I was either grinding my teeth in this picture (which my parents think is a terrible sound), or making my dog growl noise. I can't remember.

Oh, and I can't forget to give equal quality time to my dad, especially since he's gone three days a week. He jokes that mom is my best friend, but dad is my hero! :)

I don't crawl, walk, cruise or do anything a ten month old usually does, but I can stand and hold myself up with the help of the couch. I'm pretty laid back and don't see any reason to be mobile yet I guess.

A good shoe snack always holds a hungry tummy over once and a while too...

Well, that it's for my ten month roundup. These months sure fly by quickly and soon i'll be in America celebrating my one year birthday! I wonder what that's like? I can't wait!

My New Teeth

I have something so exciting to share with you!

It's something pearly white that grows in cute little rows!

All together I have six of them. Aren't they great?

The ABC's of Finger Food

Step number one: Grab your finger food (in this instance a piece of banana) in between your thumb and index finger and then lift...

Step number two: Carefully bring your finger food to your mouth, always keeping your eye on the object at hand to avoid missing the desired target (aka, the mouth).

Step number three: Close your mouth once the food is neatly placed inside, chew and swallow. Side note: The picture below shows what happens when one becomes distracted in step number three and the desired object slips unknowingly out of the hand. When this occurs repeat steps one, two and three until the finger food has made it to it's final destination.

Some other problems that can occur in this process, when steps aren't followed accordingly is food dropped in odd places. In this case, the shoulder. One might think this is a good place to save the food for a mid afternoon snack, but on the contrary, it is not a proper food storage technique.

One finger food no no would include wiping the object on one's face...

Cute and all, but makes for a lot of mess for mom to clean up afterwards

A great tip for finger fooding is to always check your lap for stray pieces.

Well, thanks a bunch for taking the time to learn all about how to effectively master finger foods. Any suggestions on future topics would be appreciated! This is Josiah signing off till next time.
