10 months old

Happy birthday to my little peanut! We are in double digits now and only two more months until the big o-n-e. Here is what you are up to:
- working your way to two naps but it's rough!
- 4 teeth now! two bottom are BIG. one on the top is about half way down and the other just poked through the other day (tylenol to the rescue!).

-you put your lips under your gums (like an old man with no teeth) and make that popping noise with them. you can also put your tongue to the top of your mouth and make that clicking noise. you are a one man band!
- you truly NEVER stop talking
- you are a serious cruiser and take more risks each day
See what I mean?

- you understand right and wrong (at least with the fireplace and electronics) but don't care. stubborn, like Mommy.
- separation anxiety has begun. you hate it when I even leave the room (I am not going to lie, I like it)
- you say Mom all the time and sometimes blow bubbles when you say it (like A.K.)
- you do this weird thing on Nana (you chose it) and I's arm. you put your wide open mouth on our arm and move your head back and forth.
- you give sloppy kisses
- favorite foods: spaghetti and it must have lots of sauce, macaroni and cheese, and avacados
can you guess which one this is?

- changing you is now a wrestling match

This was you on 9/8 last year. I was 29 weeks pregnant.
 you today. so much time has past. love you more than ever!

Love you my ever-changing boy and I am so thankful I am home with you.

Little Labor Day Weekend


You and I went with A.J. and Wyatt to Savannah and Tybee Island for Labor Day weekend. The weather was perfect and so was the time we had together. You are AWESOME in the car on the way down and back up.

A.K. was able to meet us in Tybee and that made your time at the beach even better.  

You dug your first hole in the dry sand then crawled around in the sand.

Man, it was like 77 degrees with no sun, and we found a perfect spot right next to the water. You ate sand again and this time, you weren't as bothered by it. The tide was a bit crazy and it didn't bother you at all. I actually don't think I heard you the whole time we were down by the water.
You slept well on the trip and when you didn't, I snuck in cuddle time. You made a decision this weekend that I am not sure I am ready for though. You no longer have an interest in baby food. Breakfast...fine, lunch You loved shopping, River Street, and crawling around the pirate toy store (yeah, Mommy went crazy in there!)....only if it's fruit, but dinner HAS to be people food and you prefer to feed it to yourself.
Wyatt's aunt and uncle (who we stayed with) have two dogs. One of them was terrified of you because you are always on the move. Of course, that just intrigued you more. We got a lot of, "are they twins?" comments. Not sure how to take those but cute none the less. You got your first bug bite while we were taking pictures by the marsh. Overall, great trip and A.J. and I are looking forward to taking you boys on more semi-random get aways!
