Ten Months

Here we go....another month down, another month closer to one! Wow, time really does fly by.
Here is our goofball of a boy:

He has moved very quickly from learning to crawl to almost walking. He can and will stand on anything. He will walk along furniture and uses his push toy to get from one side of the house to the other. He will push furniture around and has taken one step by himself already (although it was by complete accident). He can stand now with confidence! I'm no longer nervous when he lets go of things. He is very noisy and will make his presence known in a room very quickly. He is starting to get a bit shy around strangers and will often play coy. Along with this shyness, he is starting to get a bit attached to Preston and I and is starting to not want to be held by others. His sleeping has become a bit more consistent (although I am sure I am just totally and completely jinxing myself by saying that). For the most part, he sleeps through the night (7-7) and I'm fi…


This year for Thanksgiving we had a very quiet and relaxed weekend. It ended up just being us so we headed up to the cabin for a very quiet and perfect weekend. We ended up celebrating a day late but when its just the four of us, it doesn't seem to matter!
We were even blessed with snow! Although I wasn't fully prepared (clothing wise) we had a blast and took advantage of every second of the snow.

A girl and her snow....
Liam was not super fond of the snow or the cold....he chose to enjoy the snow from a distance

A boy and his sister....

This about sums up their relationship!

Nine Months!

Here we go again....another month gone and another month closer to one year old.
He seems to have grown very quickly this month. He is a happy, giggly, loving, little boy!
He now weighs 22 pounds 6 ounces (holy big!) and is 30.5 inches tall (above the 98 percentile for height). He is officially too heavy for his infant car seat and has been moved up to the larger car seat. We were hoping that would make him more content in the car but it has not....He has started babbling a bit (very loudly). It doesn't seem to bother him where we are and will do it in the library, the store, anywhere!He is a social butterfly. Anywhere, anytime, he draws strangers in with his big blue eyes and his super cute smile. It doesn't seem to take much :)He is obsessed with his blanket. He snuggles, loves, bites, plays...whatever with it. We didn't realize how attached he was to it until it needed to be washed and the washer was broken! We quickly fixed it :)I've said this over and ove…

8 Months!!!

Holy cow! Time is flying by too fast!
I am very late on this post....better late than ever right?!
Our boy is 8 months old and growing as fast as can be.

He is crawling everywhere and really wants to stand up. I'm sure one of these days, I will turn around and he will be standing all by himself. He is starting to pull himself up on things but often just lets go of whatever he is standing with and falls right down. We are getting more and more teeth. He has his bottom teeth and one side top tooth - the front 2 teeth and other side tooth is coming in as we speak. He is very loud and seriously voices his thoughts about his car seat....his thoughts are never positive about the car.He continues to be a picky eater but has started doing more finger food. I've figured out we are going to need to mix his veggies in his fruit in order for him to eat them without complaint. His sleep continues to be extremely sporadic....nothing else to say about that :)He, now seems to love the water...…


We grew our own pumpkins in our garden this year and ended up with a lot of pumpkins. Callie really wanted a green one so we picked hers early. 
Ha! :-)
The clothes quickly came off of Liam (we had to make Callie keep hers on)
Emptying her seed at a time....
We had to give him the pacifier to keep the pumpkin out of his mouth

We had a day off from Maya's school and took advantage of it to visit the local farm to play.
