10 months

This is a little late but I'm happy to say we've made it to double digits! I can't believe it. This has probably been my favorite stage with him so far-sure he is BUSY BUSY BUSY but oh so fun and cute!

*finally sprouted two teeth--his top two--nice big buck teeth!
*loves to get into the kitchen cabinets and also all the dvds
*likes to be read to and will actually sit quietly and cuddle with me while we read-this is one of my favorite times of the day
*is a great eater---the other day i made this nasty spinach/cucumber/parsley smoothie and the kid couldn't get enough of it! he kept crawling all over my leg trying to get more!
*loves to randomly scream, he's really happy but just really loud...not quite sure how to deal with that!
*pulls up on EVERYTHING and walks along the table and couch, he looks so grown up when he shuffles all around the living room

v-day recap

We are pretty boring when it comes to Valentine's day but I don't seem to mind. I DID get a card with a kitten on it so I was happy! If only it would have been dressed up in some costume....there's always next year. Saturday morning I ran an 8k race. 
It was cold. 
It was crowded.
I got bottlenecked like every 12 steps. 
My pictures got deleted.

After the race we had a yummy lunch at Il Mito's in Wauwatosa. It was SO so so good. We figured we skip the dinner crowds and celebrate v-day with Grant by having a fun lunch. I'm already planning our next excuse to eat there!

On Sunday I attempted to make fondue without a fondue pot. Hum. I've had better meals;) It was still fun to try something new. 

I sure love all my friends and family...and I suppose my two men!

When it rains it pours

Sheesh just when I thought my life was turning into the movie "Groundhog Day" I up and had a crazy busy week. I loved it! I love play dates, girls nights, baby showers, parties and enrichment or whatever it is now called! I sure loved being home relaxing with Grant today though! LOVED IT!

He has had quite the week himself! It was like he grew up overnight. One day I found him standing in his crib...that pretty much gave me a heart attack. The next day I noticed he has a tooth trying to pop it's way into the world. He slithers around EVERYWHERE but one day he was hungry enough that he actually crawled over to where I was to get some food, with cereal puffs in chub-a-lub cheeks he slithered back over to his toys. One day I walked in and found the dvd's all over the room....and then all the wii stuff about an hour later. Yesterday I noticed another tooth that wants to keep #1 company. Oh and he knocked over my spinach/blueberry smoothie which surprise surprise stained the carpet! What kind of mother leaves a smoothie on the floor you may ask? The kind of mother who is suffering from a heart attack and bent over putting away dvd's that's what kind of mother! There is beauty in renting right???

Anyway he sure is a busy busy boy....well at home anyway. Whenever we are out in public he just lays on the floor and stares at his hands or positions himself on his side to seduce the ladies. He's a goofball but we sure love him!
