|This is how we BOTH felt about his 10 month photo shoot....|
Anyway, as I mentioned earlier Charlie's 9 month was full of fun memories and milestones, so here's the update:
-We had plans to drive to San Diego and do the zoo, the beach, and Sea World, but a big snow storm came that weekend so we ended up doing a staycation instead. It was SO much fun!
Landon and I went skiing twice while Charlie was babysat by his Aunt Emma and also his Uncle Joey and Aunt Lorena (thank you!)
|Hanging at Aunt Emma's :)|
|We got stuck on the ski lift for two hours... but it was fun re-living our first date at Sundance ;)|
|Out to dinner at Tucanos|
|Completely passed out haha!|
|Landon's favorite animal. I sure love him!|
I wish Charlie would've been awake to go through the bridge with Dad. Landon is so funny. I almost peed my pants. He sat and waited in line with the kids hahaha!
|The shark tunnel! We also got to see a shark feeding.|
|Red Lobster with Joey and Lorena|
|He wanted Daddy's steak!|
|Our cute little chef wanted to give Charlie a Japanese fortune telling, but Charlie wouldn't give him his hand. Boo! Haha|
-Since he's officially on the move, he's less and less interested in "toys" and more interested in exploring. He LOVES to find all the "naughty' things like cords and phones and remotes.... He's quite the adventurer and loves making his way around the house. His favorite thing to do is play with the vent, coat hanger, and slap the hardwood floor.
-Charlie had his 9 month appointment and weighs 19 pounds 14 ounces and is 27.8 inches tall. He's in the 30th percentile, with the exception of his head... which is in the 70th percentile. He's so smart... ha! I knew that he didn't have to get any shots, but didn't realize that they still had to prick his heal.. Luckily the front desk lady gave Charlie a rubber ducky and he was so busy chewing on that, that he seriously didn't even flinch for the prick. Brave boy! He also tore up all the paper on the exam table... he's just crazy! On our way out, the lady at the front desk let Charlie have another toy because she said he was just way too cute. I completely agree. :)
-On February 3rd I had my exit interview with BambooHR and I'm officially a full time stay at home mom! It has seriously a dream come true and I'm now crying as I type this. I am just soooooo extremely grateful that I get to focus all my energy on being a mom and a wife. Even though I only worked part time and I got to work from home, it was just getting too stressful for me. Being Charlie's mom is definitely the most important thing I could ever do and I LOVE that it's my sole focus now.
-On February 11th Charlie got his first tooth (bottom left)!!!! I had no idea he was even teething! Charlie loves to chew on our fingers and of course when he does it I always have to say, "ouch! Charlie bit me!" (from that YouTube video) but this time it actually hurt! He bit down and I felt his tooth and I immediately broke into tears! Not because of pain haha but because he is growing up SOOO fast!
|If you zoom in, you can see that little tiny tooth!|
-My brother-in-law Dan and little nephew Bodhi came into town from Hawaii for a snowboarding trip. I was so happy that Charlie finally got to meet his Uncle Dan. He's officially met everyone from my huge family now! :)
-Sometimes Landon gives Charlie back massages and his reaction is PRICELESS. Seriously so dang cute!
|He does a really good job at sitting and playing with his toys independently. So big!|
|Is there anything sweeter than a sleeping baby?!|
|He's my buddy.|
|Not sleeping... just squinting because he hates the bright sun and won't keep his sunglasses on anymore!|
|Charlie LOVES books! He has recently discovered how to pull them off the shelf.|
|He's getting more mobile in his crib, so I frequently find him at the opposite end of the crib...|
|Charlie played with a doll for the first time at my friend Jenna's house. He loved it!|
|It's blurry, but I love this picture and how he's holding my face!|
|Fell asleep on his tummy for the first time!|
|I absolutely LOVE watching Charlie pick toys from his basket. He definitely has favorites!|
|Playing in his "fort." Ha!|
|He gave Dad a snuggle for approximately 5 seconds. I'm glad I caught it on camera!|
Charlie Dean! We can't believe you are 10 months old! You are getting so big and we are so proud of you. I know that sounds silly to say to a baby, but we really are. You are everything to us, sweet boy, and you make our life soooo happy! How did we ever survive without you?!
