Life's Been Good

We've been keeping busy the past few months. Here's what we've been up to:

Eating new things (he loves shaved turkey and fresh fruit):
Crawling around, chasing big brother and sister:

Having fun in the bath tub:
Pulling up and cruising around:
Having fun at Valentine's Parties:
Humoring Mommy by taking silly V-Day pictures:
Here's my littleist Valentine (his first):
Bear, showing off his favorite shirt ;) (he wasn't feeling well, at all)
Having fun at Kiddie Acres with friends:
Having fun bowling with friends:
Playing after school (the kids love to play on the rocks after school - I love that all they need is a little nature and a few friends to have a blast!)
Playing with Daddy:
Dressing up and pretending to cook:

Playing in the snow at Pappy's:

The expression on his face is priceless!

Sweet Pea LOVED the snow! She played in it for hours - even after making snow angels and getting her clothes wet!

Bear wasn't a big fan of the cold, but he couldn't pass up the chance to help with the snowmen and to play with sticks!

Daddy took the kids for a ride in his new bike trailor on Sunday (then we all went swimming in the hot tub):

And here's our back yard on Tuesday:

Poor baby A - Mommy made him take a lot of pictures in the cold snow:

After all of that playing, we all need a little rest :)...

10 Months

My sweet baby boy is 10 months already! I took him to get pictures taken on the special day. He did great, as always.

He is still a dream baby, for the most part. But, he has finally shown a flaw - he has recently decided that it is not very fun to sleep. He doesn't like to nap and he doesn't like to sleep at night. (I have to admit, it may not be entirely his fault - our glider completely disintegrated, so we haven't had a way to rock him to sleep). N was out of town the other night and A decided to wake up from 12:30 to 2 and then he woke up, for good, at 6. I guess I can't complain, I had some great snuggle time :). But, otherwise he is still a doll.

He is crawling (military style) all over the place, he loves to pull himself up to a stand, he can walk behind his walker, he loves to clap and to grab your hands and make you clap, he giggles at almost anything, he loves playing with all of his toys and he is babbling a lot - and after hours and hours of practicing, he can now say "Ma Ma"! Oh, how it melts my heart to hear those sounds. He is also enjoying Sweet Pea and Bear and they are enjoying him, as well.

At his nine month appt, he measured 50th percentile in height, 25th in weight, and 95th in head circumference! We are trying to cherish every second with our sweet baby. We know all too well how fast they grow up! I can't believe it's already time to plan his first birthday!!!
