Baby :: 10 Months Old

Yeah, Milo is so over these photos. It's about the memories, not how awesome the photos are. Milo is pretty hard to keep still, especially on his back which makes changing his diaper a real treat these days.

Ok, so what is this baby up to? Milo took his first official steps at 9 months and 1 week exactly and then started walking longer distances while we were in Seattle. Milo can totally walk on his own now but usually prefers to hold my hand so that he can run. This kid wants to go fast! I think I'm in big trouble.

I think I said two months ago that Milo was about to get a third tooth but now I'm positive that that is the case. His top two teeth are right there about to pop through. Milo deals with teething pretty well from what I've heard from other moms. These teeth are making him wake up a lot more than normal in the night but other than that and a little extra grumpiness he's fine. People often ask about the amber teething necklace and I say I'm on the fence about whether it helps or not. One thing that I have noticed though is that Milo doesn't really drool like he did when he wasn't wearing it. So, there's that.

I think that's all that is new on the baby front. Oh and of course, as always, I can't believe how quickly the time is flying or how much we love Milo. It's pretty nutty.

What I Wore :: This Used to Feel Normal

It is strange to look at these photos of an outfit that I would have been 100% comfortable in before and kind of feel like I am wearing a costume. I have worn all of these items many times before but it has been so long since I've put together an outfit like this that I felt a little strange. I already knew my style had changed but this really confirmed it. I would love this on someone else but it just doesn't feel like me anymore. It is really strange to feel this way but I guess it makes sense; things change. So why am I posting this? I wore it for the whole day and I do think it is a cute outfit so I'm sharing. Also, I painted my nails so I'm pretty impressed with myself. As you can see, I casually placed my hands on my head so that you could check out the paint job.

I really do like these cat tights but I think they might work better on someone with legs that are a little less large and in charge. I am really testing the tensile strength of this bracelet...er pair of tights. They are super cute though so I'll probably still wear them once in awhile.

Just to be clear, the tone of this isn't gloomy. It's casual and I'm just making observations. Anyways, I really hope you are all enjoying your day! Have a great one.

Photos :: Miscellaneous Shots

I still have lots to document from Seattle but here is a little round of random shots from our first weekend there. 

This is just a neat looking building. There were tons of buildings with old signage painted on but I didn't take photos of as many as I would have liked to.

A heart, a maze, and the Children's Museum near the Space Needle. I really wish we had a cool Children's Museum here in Hamilton. The one in Seattle was great! It had so many different sections including a place to play with instruments, a kid sized grocery store & cafe, and so many more neat things!

We went on the Underground Tour and it was really neat. I was carrying Milo so Ivan was in charge of photos. I can tell I'm tired because I just accidentally typed "I was carrying the camera so Ivan was in charge of photos".

We had a good Easter weekend. We got together with some family (which we actually do every weekend) and we have a bigger family dinner tonight. It is really nice to see Milo interacting with his grandparents more lately. He is getting a lot more comfortable with them and will hold their hands and walk them all over the place. I mean, he was ok with them before but now he seems to really enjoy them which is awesome. Oh yeah, also, Milo is exactly 10 months old today!!

I hope you all had a great weekend!
