10 months gone

10 months has gone by quickly...and brought with it one busy boy!! Danen took his first steps in the end of his 10th month-I cannot believe it! He is a busy boy on the move all day long! He is up from sun up to sun down and on the go. We have been trying to go on walks every day that it is nice out-he love love loves being outside and cries when we have to go in. Some of his likes and dislikes at this age are:

Loves Klaire...and most other kiddos but will only snuggle up to Klaire
Loves his mom and dad and cries when he sees either leave, but gets distracted easily :0)
Still hates being strapped into anything or being kept out of or in a room alone-does great strapped in if      he is outside
Loves having something in his mouth all day long while he moves around-usually it is the farmer or chicken from his little people farm
Love love loves eating and gets super excited anytime he knows food is coming
LOVES being outside-period
Loves when dad comes home and instantly crawls to him whining to be held
Hates having his diaper changed
Loves sleeping on his belly at night-which I hate because then his diaper leaks
Loves walking around-weather it is with a finger, furniture, or walls-he prefers it to crawling if he has an option
Loves to play with all things that are not conventional toys
Does not like me to be working at the computer...I either have to be down playing or he wants stuff off the desk
Loves to be anywhere where mom or dad are
Loves to be in pictures of other kids, but does not like his own-silly kid
Hates having to wait for anything-he has very little patience
Loves the bath
Love love loves books and could read or play with them all day long
Loves balls-that is usually how I get smiles at his photo shoots
Does not like getting dressed
Loves big people food and tolerates baby food
Loves climbing
Loves to point at things-especially pictures and outside
Loves the garbage's and toilet paper rolls
Still does not like being swaddled-but it helps his naps

He is still a bit small, but he packs a lot of punch in that little body. Recently a friend had her kiddos over and her little boy is twice his, but it didn't stop him from tackling him and trying to wrestle him. He  is both a little lover and a rambunctious boy. He still doesn't really love to cuddle...but he shows affection in his own little boy way.  We love our super busy little monster. He keeps us busy and on our toes. He keeps like exciting and we love watching him learn and grow everyday. I cannot believe we are only 1 month away from his first birthday-which we are already planning. This last year has gone by so quickly and has brought us so much joy. I wouldn't trade a minute of it!

On another note we are looking into building again-this time in town on one level. The builders are asking more than our last builder-but the quality will be better. We are keeping the project around the same price, but getting less square footage.  It will work for us though, and we have really thought out the floor plan to make the most of the space. We will hopefully find out this week if it is a go...and the best part is that it has a studio space for me!! I shot 5 times this last weekend and look forward to the opportunities having my own studio can bring!! Eric is excited to get a garage for his boat. The lot we are looking at is right next to a park in town, and also by the bike path. It will be a great spot for kiddos to play and less maintenance than having a large property. Wish us luck!!

Happy sunshine days to all our friends!
