10 Months

IMG_6631ebw webIMG_6615ebw web2IMG_6572bwc web

Will turned 10 months over a week ago, so I guess it's time for an update! The photos above were actually taken for a Mother's Day photoshoot before he turned 10 months old. I did take real 10 month pictures of him, but haven't uploaded them yet.

- He waves! Sometimes he waves with both is so cute. A lot of times he even says "hiiii" in a really high pitched voice while he's waving.

- He claps! He loves to clap especially if we clap and say "yaaaay!" at the same time.

- He will stand for a couple of seconds on his own, but if we try to get him to walk...he immediately drops and starts crawling. But he walks circles around his Leap Frog learning table and cruises the couch.

- He now has 5 teeth, I think. The two on the bottom are still there and then he recently started getting at least three more on the top...maybe four. Teething still doesn't seem to bother him.

- He thinks he is hilarious.

- He still says "dadadada" a lot, but has started say "mamamama" more often (but not as much as dada). It's usually when he's whining though. hmmm.

- He can throw a ball and roll a car around the house. These are probably Chris's favorite accomplishments.

- He eats about 24 ounces of formula in a day plus a container of fruit for lunch and vegetables for dinner. He has started eating some table food and he seems to really enjoy it.

- He goes to bed about 9 or 9:30 most nights and sleeps until 8 or 9. Yesterday he slept until 9:15 and we had to wake him up to get ready for church.

- He is a great traveler. Will and I went to Dallas with my brother, Lance, his new fiance, Olivia, and my parents for just one night last week to look for a wedding location and he did great. He even slept through the night in the hotel crib (aka pack n play).

- He loves other kids! He just has so much fun watching and playing with kids his age or a little older.

We love you so much, Will!

A Wedding

I photographed a wedding last weekend and posted some of the pictures on my photography blog. Go check it out and tell me what you think. I haven't decided if I will be doing anymore weddings yet. :)

Mother's Day

My first Mother's Day was perfect! We went to church with my parents, then ate lunch with the family (Brandi made us some awesome lasagna), and then I got to come home and take a 2.5 hour nap!! That night, the girls in the family went to see Made of Honor...I loved it! I thought it would be too much like My Best Friend's Wedding...but I liked it better.

Chris took the day off of work on Monday to hang out with Will and me. They took me on a mini shopping spree to Old Navy as part of my Mother's Day present, then we took Will to get some ice cream for the first time, and then we headed out to Legacy Play Village. We had never been to Legacy Play Village and we were all very impressed! Will had a ton of fun and thought he was too cool for school in his rockin sunglasses. It was hilarious!
























Sorry for the picture overload...I had a hard time narrowing it down!

Something funny.

This is the card Will gave me for my birthday...

Does Will think he has a sibling? Perhaps he already has imaginary friends? I am going to have a talk with him about this later.

Happy Birthday to Me!

I had a GREAT birthday today. Will and I went to lunch with my mom, Grammy, my aunt Chrissy, and Lacey...then Will went home with my mom so that I could have some alone time. It was fabulous. I love hanging out with Will everyday but it was definitely good to have some time for myself. I got a pedicure, went shopping, and got a haircut!

I wish I had a good before picture to show you, but I haven't had my hair this short in a very long time and I love it.



When I got home, Chris and Will gave me sweet cards that they had written. Chris also got me the prettiest flowers!


The three of us went out to dinner and Will had the best time, once again. He even sang me Happy Birthday towards the middle of this video.

Sorry if you are tired of all the videos, but I cannot get enough of them! I have been having so much fun with my Flip video camera that Chris got me for my birthday (he actually got it for me over a month ago). It has been the best gift!

After dinner we came home and I found out that Will had one more surprise for me....


An Oreo ice cream cake!


With 26 candles, of course.

Will and Chris sang Happy Birthday to me, I blew out 26 candles, and we enjoyed the cake. By we, I mean Chris and me. :)

Thanks to everyone who called, sent a text message, myspace message or email! I had a great day!!

My poor little sick baby....

Will has two ear infections, a snotty nose, a bad cough, and an off and on fever.

This was recorded ten minutes ago...
