Blake turns 10 months

Blake is now in double digit months!  Where does the time go?  He is learning lots of exciting new tricks.  Finally he is a proficient crawler.  He has a funny little crawl where he uses one foot and one knee.  I’ll post a video.  With crawling comes a new found freedom that Blake LOVES.  He used to whine and cry if ever he was left alone in a room even for one second.  But now that he can move, he loves to crawl from room to room or toy to toy discovering new things. He is a much more content baby.  He also LOVES to stand and is so proud of himself when he pulls up on the couch or on a chair. 

He can also play peek-a-boo.  It’s so cute to see his chubby little hands cover his eyes. 

And most importantly—he has learned his first word.  He says, “Light.” Every single time a light goes on or off, he looks up or points his little arm and says, “light.”  I’m trying very hard to teach him mama….

Although he enjoys his new independence, he still likes it best when someone is playing with him or holding him.  When I pick him up, he puts his head on my should and says, “ahhh”  It’s so sweet.

Rainbow Cupcakes

To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, we had a little preschool party and made Rainbow Cupcakes. The kids had a great time dying the batter, filling up the cupcake wrappers, and frosting their cupcakes.  We also made cute little cupcake toppers.  But of course, the most fun was had EATING the cupcakes! Yum Yum!

Everyone deserves a snow day

On St. Patrick's day Susan, Jen and I went skiing at Copper Mountain. It was a PERFECT ski day. The snow was soft, the sun was shining, and there wasn't a stinky diaper in sight! It was so fun to have lots of girl talk, good food, and to find my ski legs again. We caught the first chair up, and the last chair down. I don't know if we'll make it back up this season, but I am already looking forward to "snow days" next season. Thanks Susan for concocting this brilliant plan. (and finding the sitter!)
