Everett | Ten Months

Age: T.E.N. Months. Double digits.

Weight: (unofficially) 24.4 pounds. He is wearing 18M clothes and size 4 diapers.

Likes: bath time, eating, the play kitchen, the dogs water bowl, removing outlet covers and the kitchen floor vent cover, annoying Sissy, playing with Sissy, really anything involving Sissy.

Dislikes: diaper changes, being hungry, sleeping through the night, long car rides

Milestones & Big Moments: He is thisclose to walking, and I feel like I was just having concerns that he wasn't crawling yet. Whomp whomp.  He has mastered cruising around by holding onto furniture and things.  He will walk anywhere when holding onto my hands. He loves pushing around the activity table and occasionally gets brave enough to push the shopping cart and the little lion walker. And y'all, I am 100% not prepared for it.  

He is definitely more advanced in his motor skills than his verbal as he is still a fairly quiet child. He only really says hi, dada, yay and the occasional, very rare, elusive mama. (And I know that this is actually considered quite a bit, BUT I am doing that whole compare to Sissy thing and, by comparison, the kid is basically mute.)

We have more teeth. We officially have seven teeth with #8 coming in soon.

Looking forward to: Getting our pictures back from Liz of Hough Photography :)  We had them taken on Sunday and the previews are super dreamy. Liz had a sale on mini sessions and Everett's godmother, Kerri, got him the cutest picture worthy outfit so I figured it was a good reason to get some more pictures of the kiddos. I feel like I literally cannot have enough pictures of them. Clearly there are no #secondbabyprobs when it comes to his life being well documented.

I cannot believe this little stinker has been around for 10 months.  I also cannot believe how fast 10 months have flown by. He is really starting to get a little personality and he is 100% a mama's boy and I love it.  Natalie has always been incredibly affectionate with me but the way Everett loves is completely different. It has been one of the most interesting things to watch unfold and grow.

Party planning for Everett's first birthday is in full effect.  I am so excited for the theme we have picked and to see it all come together. I have created and ordered his invitations. I have started work on his milestone board. We have scheduled his one year pictures with Liz. It is crazy to think how quickly it will all be here!

Overall, I am just really excited for our first full summer as a family of four.  B and I have been doing 710 house projects to really make our house feel more like home and as the weather has started to get nicer, we've been working more on the outside. I am excited to basically live outside with the kids for the next 4+ months so we needed the space to be more functional and fun. I can't wait to show some before and after pictures of that project!
