10 months

Life can sure get crazy sometimes. This month was a mix of good crazy and bad crazy, but its hard to complain about too much with such a cute little baby around. 9-10 months old has been my favorite yet. I've said that before! But I'm not kidding people, this kid makes my day every day. I just had my first Mother's Day and I just feel so beyond blessed to be the mother of this sweet spirit.

Some highlights of our month:

We went to Portland for my brother Masen's wedding! It was so beautiful! I love his cute little bride and am so happy she is part of the family now! It was also really fun that we got to explore the area for a few days after the wedding. Bennett was a total trouper, he slept great and was happy the whole weekend, no joke. Such a little love! We also went to Park City one weekend, went canoeing and swimming on Memorial Day, and spent lots of time at the park! (Oh, I also dyed my hair brown and I love it and I may never go back!)

Bennett still has just two teeth, still only army crawls, and still nurses like every 2-3 hours in the day. He usually only eats once in the night now though, which is heavenly! His doctor told me to try eating dairy as a trial, and he has been totally fine all month! I think its safe now to say his infant allergy is gone!!! (I have been enjoying this a great deal as you can imagine. bring on the ice cream and pizza!)

Kiddo can sit up from laying down by himself and has also has started pulling himself up on everything. Its so fun to see him learning new things, but I will be happier once he figures out how to sit back down, especially when he is supposed to be sleeping;) His army crawl is so hilarious, and he gets moving so fast! I've seen him rocking back and forth on his hands and knees though, so I think its only a matter of time until the army crawling stops:( its so cute, I'll be sad to see it go!

Kyle is Bennett's best friend, it is ridiculously cute how much he loves his dad. He saves his best laughs and smiles for him. Its the sweetest thing:) He also loves pretending to drive, turning on the windshield wipers, etc. He loves anything involving going fast- being run around the park, getting spun in a circle, getting thrown in the air... you name it. Little daredevil!

He is still very stingy with his smiles and prefers to just stare at people he doesn't know. He loves the dog that lives in our col-de-sac. He has started crying when you take away something he wants. He is FINALLY a decent sleeper, taking 2 naps a day and only waking up 0-2 times a night, usually one time:)

So much personality in this little guy! He is the light of our lives!
