Forever and Future Best Friends

I was blessed with the opportunity to join Kerry in Palm Desert last week as he attended a conference. Any excuse or reason to go to California I take because my best friend Katie is there! Even more special was that I finally got to meet her little guy Isaiah! Katie is truly one of those friends that you know, no matter how far apart we may live from each other, we will always be forever friends and my hope is that Isaiah and Christian form a special friendship too through the years. 

Here is photo journey of our trip!

Their first meeting :)
can i play with him?

cutie patooties in plaid

hey buddy!

let's hug and be forever friends... ok?

The four of us!
 One of my favorite parts about this trip was that Katie and I really didn't go out and DO anything. Instead we just did the "mom thing" together and did life. Man, I wish we could do this all the time!

Sweet Isaiah... your Auntie Katelyn already loves you!

Christian became quite the crawler on this trip and even sat up from laying down for the first time!

A walk to the pool

gazing at each other.... notice I am having to hold C's hands down. He wasted to grab Isaiah SO BAD!

10 months!

Happy 10 months Christian!

10 Month Stats
Weight: 18.7 lbs (5-10 %)

Clothes: Christian has been growing like a weed and is in 6-9 month clothes.

This is one active baby boy! He loves to roll, army crawl and have you hold his hands to stand. I had to buy him some new toys this month as he out grew all of his infant toys. The stuffed rattle just wasn't cutting it! He loves playing with blocks and still loves to jump in the jump and go. 

Christian has 2 teeth. (The second one popped through days after the first) He is army crawling, can sit from laying down, learned to open doors and drawers and pulled himself up to stand on the ottoman. He has become so much more mobile this month it amazes me every day! He also will give high fives, clap and sign more. Looks like "dada" is in the lead for most said "word" but I am still pushing for "mama". :) 

Eating: breast milk, avocado, rice cereal, oatmeal, banana, sweet potato, carrots, applesauce, pears, peas, green beans, blueberries, squash, puffs, cheerios, pasta, quinoa, corn, chicken, little cremes, prunes

I love sleep training.
Ok well I love the RESULT of sleep training!
After 2 nights christian is now falling sleep on his own without a single peep and sleeps through the night. Praise Jesus! It is amazing what a full nights sleep does for a person!
Wake up- 6:45ish
Naps- 9 and 1:30
Bed- 7:00 with maybe one wake up around 5 but he falls right back to sleep

Firsts and Fun!

We have been having such gorgeous "Fall" weather around here... mid 70s what?!! Kerry and I took full advantage of a sunny Saturday and took Christian to the park for his first ride on the swings. He lounged back and was so relaxed as the sun shone on his face. He loved watching the other kiddos swing as well. I love how this boy just takes everything in and his even keel personality shows through. Here is to many more park adventures in our future!

ready to go!

just chillin' 
hey this is fun!
taking it all in...

Fall Day at the Farm

Last week we went with the Angelos to a local farm to celebrate my favorite season, Fall! After decking C out in his plaid garb, we took a hay ride to the pumpkin patch, picked out pumpkins, enjoyed some fresh apple cider and wandered around the produce shop. It was so relaxing and fun and a blast introducing C to our seasonal traditions.
