10 months old

I'm a little over a week late but better late than never right?

My baby turned 10 months old on July 16!

Weight: 17.2 pounds
Height: 27 inches
Wearing: mostly 3-6 months with a few 6-12 month stuff. We're officially out of 0-3 clothes and maybe out of 3-6 shortly.
Eating: ANYTHING and EVERYTHING! He's not a fan of bananas, smashed green beans, or peaches. We still haven't tried milk, nuts, peanut butter, or honey.
Doing: crawling EVERYWHERE and getting into ANYTHING you he can reach.
Funny things that he does: when he crawls he takes about 3-4 crawls and then stops for a break, sits on the floor and spins in circles, stands at couch rests head on couch and dangles hands.

We spent Drakes 10 month birthday at Lowes getting the materials for his birthday present. But sshhh don't tell him.

The big birthday party is coming up quickly! I have almost everything ready and invitations go out in a few weeks,

We're now a family of 4.

We got a puppy!! Most of you that know me, know that I'm not a dog person. Heck I'm not an any type of animal person. BUT I think Drake is going to love him.

His name is Bentley and he's full of energy. Drake was asleep when Aaron brought him home last night so here are a few pictures of the puppy and Aaron last night and then Drake and the puppy this morning.

Our long and busy 2 weeks

I'm so glad that I can now post from my phone! Hopefully I am able to keep up on my blogging now.

Last week started a LONG and busy 2 weeks for us an thankfully today is the end of that 2 weeks. Getting ready for any trip with a baby is difficult. A trip with just me and the baby was even more difficult but I got us all packed and ready to go before Aaron left.

Aaron went on a team bonding exercise to Oklahoma last Thursday. The guys had a blast, they floated the river and did 'guy things.' While daddy was away for the night, we took the opportunity to have a sleep over with Bailey and Peyton. Drake loves them and they help me so much.

Friday was a blur, we started the day off early and with pancakes! We had to wait for Aaron to get home before we packed everything up in the car and headed out. The trip to Tulsa went extremely well (considering Drake HATES the car). Security was a breeze compared to what I had imagined it to be. People were helpful and we didn't set the metal detector off :) Drake did amazingly well on both flights and the 3 hour layover. Again, not how I imagined it would go. Mom, dad, CJ, and Alex all loved seeing Drake! And I love that he got to see them.

Saturday morning were up and out of the house by 9am. We had ALOT to do and I think we got it all done. First on our list was Roe Ann's but it was closed. So, the zoo became first on our list. The Boise zoo was a slight disappointment. There were no elephants and the giraffes were in their barn. Drake did like feeding the goats. He laughed when they would like his hand. The heat from Arkansas must have followed us to Idaho thought because Saturday was the hottest day they'd seen this year. After the zoo we headed to lunch and to do some shopping. I try to hit the stores that we don't have in Arkansas and some of my favorite stores just to see what items are different. Drake tried a whole lot of new stuff at lunch that day. What would be a trip to Joes Crab Shack without crab? He tried both crab and two types of shrimp. Both of which he liked!

Sunday was more relaxing. We did have to run to walmart but, other than that we lounged around and then took pictures of Drake and Lola. That evening we had family over for Mexican dinner. I love being able to see my family and hate that we live so far away.

Monday. HAPPY 4th OF JULY and its time to go home day!Drake and I liked Idaho and our mini vacation but we were ready to go home. The flights went well and we ended up at home about 1am.

Tuesday, was the naturals game. It was hot! We Didn't stay for the whole game because it was hot and past Drakes bedtime. Aaron and Drake took pictures with Strike and got a first ball game certificate.

If you're still reading this I applause you. And thank you for keeping up with our tiny family.

*disclaimer* All of the pictures are iPhone pictures so they aren't the best. AND I can't figure out how to upload them where I want them

Fruit loops or Pops?
