10 months and change

Bayer at 10+ months

-Starting to walk on his own! Just yesterday he left the couch and went for the TV console!
-He loves to be hold my hand and walk around
-We have been swimming everyday for the last 2 weeks--because he's a little fish!
-He loves baths!
-He babbles all the time!
-About 2 weeks ago he started mimicking the words, "Ut-oh!" I'm counting that as his first conscience word.
-He is obsessed with the caps on toilets, the part that covers the screws to take it off--Yuck! I bleach it all the time!!
-He's not a very good eater, he likes bottles a lot (I weaned him at 9.5 months)
-He has the BEST gap in between his two first teeth, it's going to be hilarious as he ages
-He loves balls, he chases them for ten minutes at a time
-He hates being left alone or if you leave his sight
-He love love loves his daddy
-He loves it when you bounce balls, he literally giggles
-He LOVES to be read to, his favorite books are, Jungle Jeep and Where is Baby's Belly Button?
-He still likes to be held A LOT
-He is very sensitive to loud noises and kids crying or yelling--such an only child

We love him to absolute pieces.

La Traviata

Brandon surprised me with Opera tickets to see Guiseppe Verdi's La Traviata, it was our first opera and we really enjoyed it. It was really nice to go out on a real date and spend some time together. We went out to eat at Flemmings before the show and had some pricey but oh so worth it steak (Brandon) and veal (me) and this "you can die now" chocolate lava cake. It was really needed, he was just about finished with finals after the hardest semester of his life.

Sometimes you just gotta spoil yourself. When you spoil yourself, you should go all out. Right? Well that's what I keep telling my guilty conscience.
