March 14th, 2011 - Ten Months Old

How can I have a baby who is TEN months old already?

It actually makes me sad:(  I know some parents love when their kids grow up, but I honestly miss my little bitty baby.  Do I have baby fever already?  No, I couldn't possibly!  I think I just realize that he has been "out" for the same amount of time that he was "in".  He was in my tummy for this long and now he has been out in this big world for TEN WHOLE MONTHS!  Ahhhhhhh!

I have come to terms with the fact that I can't totally protect him from everything and he has to cry sometimes and he is going to do everything on his own time.  But, that doesn't mean I miss my little baby who slept in his swing so peacefully, who loved to be swaddled, who couldn't crawl away from me to get to the dog food!

So, ten months, what do you do with a ten month old baby when you are a stay at home mom and it's too cold to go outside?  Well, here is what our little family did....

3-14: We shopped at Home Depot to make a new "for sale" sign for our yard

3-16: We shopped at Bed Bath & Beyond, came out with nothing, but I've been searching for the "perfect" bedding....someday, it will be mine!

3-16: We ate lunch at Red Robin and gave Dallas static hair from one of their balloons
3-17: Dallas took lots of baths and learned where the water comes from!  (We call it Faucet Falls, thanks to a book Dallas has about taking a bath.)

3-17: Still in the tub...

3-17: ...still in the tub:)

3-22: Dallas had a bottle, or two, or twelve, with crossed ankles, and no shirt (this is the redneck way)

3-22: Dallas shared a teething ring with Daddy

3-23: Daddy put Wasabi under a blanket where he likes to be and Dallas thought it was pretty funny

March 31st, Dallas also got his 3rd tooth, the top left, he loves to grind his teeth and it makes me cringe!!
(I wish I could get the tooth on camera!)

So, that was our month, we hope you had a great month as well!


  1. Your baby is so cute!! It's so great that you are documenting all of those fun times!!

    Thanks for your comment on my beadboard cabinet backsplash. I think a beadboard kitchen backsplash is a great idea. Do you know Thrifty Decor's site? She installed beadboard in her kitchen and it looks awesome. I think you would need to do a semigloss or glossy paint so that cleaning it would be easy. Good luck!
