the one that should have been posted on monday march 17
According to What to Expect the First Year:
By ten months, your baby

...should be able to:
-stand holding on to someone or something CHECK (this is his favorite thing to do)
-pull up to a standing position from sitting CHECK
-object if you try to take a toy away NO- he's good natured and doesn't object to much
-say "mama" or "dada" indiscriminately CHECK
-play peekaboo CHECK
-exchange back-and-forth gestures with you CHECK
...will probably be able to:
-get into a sitting position from stomach NO (he did it once but seems to have forgotten how)
-play patty-cake (clap hands) or wave bye-bye CHECK
-pick up tiny object with any part of thumb and finger CHECK
-walk holding on to furniture CHECK
-understand "no" (but not always obey it) CHECK

...may possibly be able to:-stand alone momentarily
-say "dada" or "mama" discriminately NO (but I think he said AT once when he saw Sam, our cat)
-point to something to get needs met NO
...may even be able to:

-indicate wants in ways other than crying CHECK (he smacks his lips when he's hungry)
-"play ball" (roll a ball back to you) NO (but he's thrown it to play "fetch" once or twice)
-drink from a cup independently CHECK (but water gets everywhere! Does it count if he doesn't do it neatly?)
-pick up a tiny object neatly with tips of thumb and forefinger CHECK
-stand alone well NO (but he can do it for a moment)
-use immature jargoning (gibberish that sounds as if baby is talking in a made-up foreign language) NO (but he does repeat sounds like dadadadada in a way that sounds like he's trying to have a conversation)
-say one word other than "mama" or "dada" NO (unless he really did say AT for "cat")
-respond to a one-step command with gestures ("Give that to me"- with hand out) CHECK
-walk well NO

    Looks like he's right on track. Thanks for posting these checklists, btw. It's fun to see what our boys can do!

    Oh that face! The ladies are going to lining up in front of your door to see that know that right?
