11 Months!

WOW!! Lane man is 11 months today, and wow is all I can say!! I can't believe that in one very short month he will be a year!!! It's crazy how fast it goes by. He is becoming a "big boy" more and more every day! In honor of this occassion here are the Top 11 things I love about Lane....

1. His big smile.
2. The way he loves his daddy.
3. How every time when I walk in the door at daycare, he spots me and smiles!
4. His small little curls that are appearing on the back and side of his head.
5. How he gets excited every time he hears the water run.
6. How he walks with his hands up.
7. How every once in a while he will give me one of his Cheerios.
8. His big milk belly.
9. How he loves to eat oatmeal cream pies with Paul.
10. When he makes his high pitched squeal.
and number 11.... how much joy and happiness I get every time I look at his sweet, handsome little face!!

P.S. I am already (and honestly have been for awhile now) in party planning mode!! I want to give him the best 1st birthday! Even though he may not remember every detail, it's all about looking back one day and seeing how much everyone loved him! Anyway his party is all set for March 29th! I'll be posting more on that later!!

A trip to the park!

This past weekend Paul and I decided to take Lane to the park for the first time. Lane loves to be outside and since he is a full time walker now, we thought he would like it. The park had a section just for little ones, which was perfect for Lane! We didn't stay too long but just enough for him to have a fun time. And I do think we found a new favorite.....his sweet face speaks for itself!!

On the other side of all these smiles, was alot of cries this weekend. Lane is cutting his 5th and 6th teeth and they have been the worst yet. And it doesn't help that they are taking their sweet time. It was a pretty draining weekend (and not much better today)! We kept baby Orajel and Tylenol close by and been giving him lots of lovin! Hurry up teeth and break through already!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. This week was pretty busy and went by fast. This weekend had even gone by faster! I guess because we have been going non-stop. Friday when we all got home we took Lane to play outside. Since he is always walking now, he loves to play with his walking push toys! Lane was pushing it all down our sidewalks. He is such a mess now that he is brave and can get around. Here are some pics of little man playing and burning some energy!! His new thing is to stick his tongue out! Luckily I grabbed a shot of it!
Whenever Lane was going and he ran into the grass, the toy would not go forward. So all of the sudden we noticed that when he got to a point where he could not go any further, Lane would actually pull back on the toy and kinda move it in another direction! It was so funny and neither Paul nor myself showed him to do that, so I just couldn't believe that Lane "understood" that he needed to do that! Just another sign that he is growing up!!

Going along...
Look at me....Walking with daddy Playing in daddy's truck

This is also another one of Lane's new faces he makes! He makes this face when he growls at us or is making noises! And yes is has been known to "growl" when he wants something!! More likely than not that something is food!!

My cutie pie! Looking more and more like a little boy!

This is hilarious! Yesterday Lane spent the day with my nana so that Paul and I could work in the house. When we met back up, we all went to Kincaid's. Paul had a chocolate milk shake and decided to give Lane a try. And Lane LOVED IT!!! He would growl at Paul meaning he wanted more and as soon as Paul got the straw out to give him some Lane got the biggest smile on his face!!! It was the cutest and funniest thing! We could not stop laughing! Let's hope thats a sign of a smooth transition to milk!

Yum, Yum!

The majority of our weekend was spent doing our room. We are so happy with the outcome and I love just walking in there! I am not completely done with decorating it. I still want to put some more things on the wall, but that will come in time. So here are some pics of the new room. Some of the pictures have some clear dots on it. Not really sure why my camera did that and didn't know how to take them off, so please ignore those!

This is the media stand. Let me explain why it looks a bit bare. See we do have a perfectly fine tv to put on top, however, my dear husband wants to buy a new one...a flat panel.
I'll let you know who wins that one!!
