10 Months Old











What's up?











I'm so happy to have my picture taken!














Look at those legs!












Fat and Happy sitting on the bench outside.












That's right peeps! 10 months old. He has grown so much! Yesterday he puked all over his pants so he was just hanging in his onesie. He's got some fat little legs! He is now an official crawler. I tried to get video of him pulling up but every time he hears the camera turn on he gets all excited and distracted. He loves to just grab your head and try and bite you. The biting is not fun but the grabbing part is pretty funny. It's like rabid baby.

And he's up!






















Nathan just pulled himself up to standing for the first time! Let the concussions begin!

Sleep is for the weak





















It's been a crazy week here in the Black household (or maybe it's the half black household). Mom and Pat came down and spent the weekend last weekend.












I was on the last few days of whatever illness Nathan had given me the week before. He seemed to be doing ok. Then on Sunday he had a runny nose. I didn't worry too much, we had a well baby check on Tuesday. But then we didn't sleep Sunday night (well, maybe 3 hours split up in 30 minute chunks). Monday he had a cough. We didn't sleep much Monday night. Went to the Dr. (it was crazy there) and he had his first ear infection. So that explains the not sleeping. He's on amoxicillin and seems to be doing much better. But the medicine has given him the flying shits, literally and now he has a chapped ass. Poor baby.

I am so excited to be on spring break. The last two weeks literally almost killed me. You know you are in for a long day when you are falling asleep driving TO work. I am used to being tired on the way home. Then factor in all the freaking construction and what was a 50 minute drive is now over an hour. It sucks royally.












But we are going to have a great time this week. I am having Nathan take his naps in the crib as opposed to the car seat so that we can wean him off of that and hopefully this will smooth the way to him sleeping in his crib at night. I am not sure that I am ready for him to be away all night long, but I am sure I am ready for some sleep! He is now very restless between 2-4 am and turns over and over and over. While it's mildly amusing to see him kick David in the head, it's not so funny to be awake at that hour. So we are trying.











Nathan is really talking these days. His favorite is dada but he's branching out.




And here he is playing in the kitchen with a measuring cup. Why do we buy toys again? This video hasn't completed yet on youtube so just be patient and hopefully it will show up soon.

This kid is funny
























He really is. He has figured out that he can fake cough. He finds this very funny. He is also using both legs in his commando crawl now. It's only a matter of time till he figures out that he can get around much easier when he is balanced on all fours.



He has also figured out that he can open and close the bottom drawer on the oven. David installed cabinets locks on a few cabinets last week before he could get into trouble there.



We went to Red Lobster today and all he did was stare at the waitress and drop things off the table. He likes to drop things and for you to give them back. It gets old for me real quick.











He also for some reason will not go around the walker, he has to go through the bottom part.

He caught a little cough from the sitter and then gave it to me. It didn't do much to him but it's knocked me on my ass. Hopefully another day at home will help and I can get over this soon. Here's a few pictures for the masses and a couple of videos I think you will find amusing.


He does this strange head thing when he is playing with the Tommy Boy card. I tried to catch it. After several takes I got a version of it.
