At ten months old, Weston St. John Nelson is really starting to move. He's on his feet, and walking with the help of toys and furniture. 

It could be any day now, when he's actually walking on his own.

"I can't believe he's getting so big already," mom Renee Passal said. "I wish he was still a tiny infant sometimes!"

Weston visits his mom's coworkers on Fridays at the station. The sales team loves to play with him, and he loves them too. 

The St. Louis County Public Health Nurse Program has been helpful. Dana Litman comes to visit the house every few months, and gives advice on development.

As for daycare, "All of the providers are great with Weston. They tell me he's a happy boy, and I'm glad to hear it!" Renee said. However, he doesn't like to take naps there. Put him in the car, though, he zonks out immediately.

Weston weighs over 21 pounds, and has yet to turn down any type of food he's offered. He likes to brush his teeth on his own. No pacifiers are used any more, but he does like to suck on two of his fingers.

He's got a little bit of baby eczema that his mom and dad are working on. But other than that, he's pretty perfect!
