10 months!!!

I can not believe in two months my baby will be ONE year old!!!! This time has flown by way to fast for my liking!!!! He has changed so much in the past month!!! He is developing at such a fast pace! I think he has developed the most in the past month!!!

What are we doing now:
We love to give kisses:
He has an obsession with noses. He does not really grab hair but if you are holding him he will most likely grab your nose... and sometimes it REALLY hurts! :)

He loves to ride on his airplane aunt Hilary and Uncle John got him for Christmas

Here is my cute little hobo on his 10 month birthday!



We also went over to Bennetts and played! John had a blast riding on Bennetts four wheeler! I am going to have to get this for him for his birthday! It is so cool! Thanks Bennett for sharing!


He loves to dance. He LOVES music and Grandmother got him some Praise Baby DVD's for Christmas and he LOVES them! So do I... they are way better than Baby Einstein!

He is almost crawling! He is scoots everywhere! He just can't get his leg out from under him

He is pulling up on things. He can stand for a while by himself and he is learning to go from a standing position to a sitting position fairly well!

Our ear infections are getting better still not 100% but better than before tubes!

Goes to sleep on his own!! So wonderful for us! I just put him in his bed and he goes to sleep!

Loves cars! He loves to push and pull things

Can wave bye bye and hello! It is SO CUTE!!!!

Claps his hands!!

When he gets really excited he says nay nay nay!!! I will try to get a video of that it is adorable!

He is still my little baby at about 16.5 pounds maybe 17. Poor baby- everytime he gets an ear infection he loses weight! But he does have fat rolls!!!

he is about 26.5 inches long

He has two bottom teeth, right eye tooth and front tooth and his left eye tooth and front tooth are coming in (SO FUN FOR ME!!! This has been the most painful teething process yet!)

That is all for now! stay tuned! Go ahead and mark Feb 27 for his birthday party!! Hope everyone can make it!!!

Merry 1ST Christmas

Our first family Christmas was wonderful! John got WAY WAY WAY to many gifts. So much, we actually took half and put them away to regift for his birthday in TWO months!!!
Santa brought me a new compter which I am on right now!! So expect more updates!!! His 10 month coming SOON!! For some reason I can not rearrage my pictures so they are a little out of order so please bear with me.... We had an action packed Christmas. We started at our house, then went to the Glen to have lunch with Grandmother, then went out to my aunts for our family Christmas and finished at Jeff's parents to have Christmas there with the fam! Long long day and I was SO proud of John. He only got two short naps and he was such an angel! Guess that is why Santa was so good to him!!! :)

Here is our first Christmas

This is John in his new chair Mimi bought him... (or santa) Another chair picture... how cute is he!!!


I hosted Christmas at our house... it was a little stressful getting it ready but the good thing is that it forced me to get our living room in "order"... here is the spread we had for breakfast! It was yum-MY!!



Here is the living room!! Santa really visited our house!



Here is what santa brought John...

9 months

I know my posting are sparse and I am so sorry... it is really difficult sharing a computer with my husband who is a full time student with a paper due every week! I am hoping Santa brings me a computer and then my postings will not be so far apart! :)

I can not believe John is 9 months old already!!! He is getting so big! We are finally over our ear infections (fingers crossed) and so he is getting mobile! It has been 2 weeks since his ear infection began getting better thanks to the evil necessary modern day medicine! John was put on a super antibiotic and it killed his resistant germ once and for all! So, with that said he is scootting... we are a little behind our fellow friends but who wants to move around when their head is filled with fluid and it hurts 24/7??!!! I was told by daycare he scooted or as I call it did the worm across the room! I was so proud! Although I am dreading the day he is crawling, the time has come and I have to put my selfish desires aside!

So what are we doing now:
  • You have your third tooth coming in... it is his right eye tooth... two bottom teeth and one eye tooth creepy!!
  • He can actually wear his size clothes for the first time EVER!!!!!!
  • He LOVES toys that make noise! He gets so excited when he is reading a book and he push the button and music starts!
  • He apparently LOVES Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer I was not there to witness it but he was super excited with his hands in the air when it came on! This one excited my mother the most, as it is her favorite Christmas movie of all time!
  • He is eating little cheerio type snacks (not sure what they are but yes they are organic- can't help myself)
  • He is still terrified of our dogs but getting better... they look like monsters to him I guess because he loves my moms dog!
  • He is jabbering up a storm... He talks all the time!
  • And it has arrived.... He has found his temper!!! The first time he balled up his fist and let out a frustrating screech was hilarious but not so much anymore (ok I do still laugh from time to time... especially when my mom pushed his had away and he hit her back and made the same frustrating screech at her)
  • He loves books, especially the touch and feel books. He loves to turn the page and feel the different textures!
  • He saw his first horse this month (pictures below) and did not get scared, which I was surprised by seeing he is terrified of our dogs.
  • He weighs a little over 16 lbs and is 26.5 inches long! both below the 5% but his head is in the 50% ..


This was his picture from Thanksgiving! You can see his two precious bottom teeth!
This is John and Kelsey... he absolutly LOVES her...Don't even think about taking him away from her, he will make sure it is the last time you ever do that again!


This is from John's first trip to the park! He loved it!!!
John is just the most amazing son, I never thought he would be as big of a joy as he is to us! We look forward to each and every second with him! God truly has blessed us with him! We love you so much buddy!!!
