Last night, Cason was playing at his little table and it started to move. Much to our surprise, Cason just started walking right behind it. Yikes!
All in one day, Cason got to see his Uncle Kevin and then got to see Uncle Eric and Aunt Whitney. We went to our neighborhood supper club and I left the camera for Eric and Whitney. Looks like Uncle Eric is working really hard to be the “cool uncle”… letting Cason do things he’s not supposed to do…
Looking at the (not made of cardboard) photobook …
Sliding down the banister…
Ha, all kidding aside, the pictures show that they had a fun night!
We had our first blood yesterday... it turned out to be pretty minor but was a gusher.
We were at the doctor's office for a recheck of Cason's iron levels and I was letting him crawl around on the exam table. He was crawling toward the window and his hand slid off the end of the table before I could save him and his head hit the corner of the window sill. I didn't realize he was bleeding at first -- I was more concerned about comforting him. Then I looked down and saw blood running down his face. I had blood all over my face and didn't even realize it... the nurse looked at me and said "sweetie, let me clean you up". Ha. I guess its good to be at the doctor when that happens so you don't have to worry about anything.
So far there is no black eye, just a little bruising that you can't even see in this picture. Like I said, minor and didn't slow the C-man down at all.
Standing all the time!
He loves the bar stools which definitely pose a safety risk.
On the move!
Mom, if you insist on sticking that camera in my face all the time, I'm gonna get reeeeealllll close!
I really have no clue how I got the above picture, he is so fast and DOES NOT stay on his back long (unless he's got his bottle). This is really what the photo shoot was like...
Cason is into everything now. He loves the door stops and just noticed the actual door the other night
And now that he's such a good crawler, he's loving his tunnel
At 10 months...
I totally copied Suz and her Valentine's Shirts. When I found out Cason was having a Valentine's party at school, I had to make him a Tie Shirt for the occasion.
This tie shirt is very easy to make. After I washed my other shirts I realized that the zig zag stitch was really the best option as I got a little bit of fraying in my straight stitched shirt.
And a few pictures of on-the-move Cason.
My mom's spaghetti has always been a big hit with anyone who tried it. I'd been wanting to let Cason have some but Ryan insisted we get a mat for under the high chair first so I ordered one. It was delivered last week so I made a batch of spaghetti tonight.
I think this first picture pretty much tells the whole story...
He loved it! He also did a pretty good job of actually eating the spaghetti. I'd say about half was in his bib pocket, chair and on the floor. He had to have a serious scrubbing in the bathtub. We kept joking that he looked like he'd had a little too much spray tan. His whole face and his hands were orange.
For some time now I've been want to make one of those cute tie onesies, like this one from "Crap I've Made". Suz's cute valentines shirts for her boys finally got my totally inspired so I got to work.... but I didn't make anything with a tie on it. Ha. That's coming though!
Suz sent me the tutorial to the "Sort-of Applique T-Shirt" (I love that name) and also told me where to get all the supplies for cheap! We all know I love a bargain and I already had lots of cute fabrics in my stash so I just needed the heat-n-bond and the shirts.
First, I did this cute little onesie for the newest little baby in our lives... Miss Ava. Ava's parent's are some of our good friend and her mommy also works with Ryan. We met her yesterday and she's just the cutest little thing.
I also made Miss Ava another onesie with a cute lowercase "a" but I never got a picture of it before we went to meet her.
Then I made a couple of shirts for Cason. They are probably too big for him so I hope it doesn't turn 100 degrees too soon!
See, since I had this cute Guitar fabric and Truck fabric, I couldn't resist making a Guitar Shirt and a Truck Shirt instead of a tie.
I know another little boy named Mo that needs a guitar onesie and a truck onesie so I'll be repeating these projects very soon!
