10 months!

Dear Drake,

Where has the time gone?? I saw a one month old baby today and it's hard to remember when you were that little. Today, you are 10 months old!! In just a couple months we'll be celebrating your birthday.

Earlier this month, we had the fall time change which didn't have much of an effect on you thank goodness. You woke up early the first couple days, but since then you have been back to yourself sleeping 12 hours at night.

We started third foods on the 16th, but now you are almost exclusively on table foods! You do still have cereal in the morning and once in a while get baby food, but you are starting to refuse it. So far, you have had corn, tortillas, taco meat, bbq pork rib, zucchini, french fry, McDonald's cookies, chicken nuggets, beef sausage, cinnamon rolls, baked beans, stuffing, and tator tot casserole. Kahlua really likes when it's time for you to eat because that usually means she gets some. :-)

You are doing lots of babbling with more distinct B, G, P, M, and D sounds, but we haven't detected any real "words" yet. We're trying really hard to get you to say momma and dada, but we know it will come in time.

You have been walking with your push toy and by holding our hands for quite a while now, but this month, you started standing unassisted! You even took a couple steps between your Aunt Michelle and Uncle Jarrod at Thanksgiving.

We transitioned you to the regular tub!!You have figured out how to shake your head "no"...although I don't think you know what it means.

Your daddy has started building forts with you! You seem to love it and I'm sure they will get bigger as the years go on!

For your first Thanksgiving, we went to Grandma & Grandpa Williams' on Thanksgiving day and then celebrated with Grandpa Patterson on Saturday. You also had your first car accident, but you slept right through it! We hit a deer on the way home from Grandma & Grandpa's. We had to get rid of the car seat you were in which meant that you got to try out your new seat!You now have 3 teeth! A top central incisor came in at the beginning of the month. Your top gums are pretty swollen so I'm sure you'll be getting a few more teeth soon.

You are wearing size 9 months clothes and size 3 diapers.

Drake, we love you SO much and can't believe you how big you are getting!!

Happy 10 month birthday!

My name is Jeanie Bree and I'm a friend of Tiffany Michaels. I'm trying to update my blog and am interested in putting a picture/design on the top of it like yours. Would you be able to tell me how you did that? You can e-mail me at
Thank you so much,
