this guy has filled my life with more joy than i have ever known. he is one week away from being 10 months old. i can’t believe how fast the time has gone by! here are some things that i want to remember:
he crawls. he says “dada” and “baba”. he hates wearing hats. (i pretty much hold this hat on his head until he gets distracted with something else and forgets about the hat). he still loves his cribby crib. he is about to get some major teeth-age on top. his poor little gums are so swollen. he decided he is done with nursing. (his mom has been mourning this loss for the past five days, but she’s doing okay now). he sleeps all night long. he is too “skinny” according to his doctor. we’ve gotta fatten this boy up. he loves babies and other little people. he loves to lay on a blanket outside in our backyard and crawl around the perimeter feeling the grass and leaves. he loves looking at airplanes. every time he hears our neighbors’ dogs barking he stops what he’s doing and tries to find them. he is the happiest baby and i adore him.

i don’t know if you remember me. i run this here blog. i have a really super cute baby boy, and an equally attractive husband. i’ve been m.i.a. lately for many reasons. i won’t bore you interweb folks with my excuses. i’m just going to start semi-fresh.
first things first. harrison. nine months old today. eats normal human food. almost crawls. sleeps on his belly. has two teeth. has crazy scare hair. has pretty blue eyes. loves his blankie. loves his cribby crib. loves to be outside. loves going on walks. loves dogs. loves his Dad. says “Dad” all the time. especially loves his Mom. ;) he is my eternal sunshine.
secondly. we moved to utah. thirdly (is that a word?). we bought a house.
after moving to utah i made james and harry get family pictures with me. they were both pretty good sports. i bribed james with a treat from the bakery down the street. i bribed harry with nursings ifyaknowwhatimean. i think they turned out really great.
we are so grateful for the time we got to spend in Midland. it is where James became an air traffic controller, i got my degree in nursing, and we had our first precious baby. we left behind some amazing friends that we miss a lot. we are really glad to be back with our family, but Texas will always hold a special place in our hearts.
psst- all of our professional pics were taken by the fabulous Jennifer Fauset.

duck pond adventures
little guy has a certain affinity for ducks. we decided he needed to see some real ducks and took him to the duck pond.
he. loved. it.
anyone who knows me well knows that i am particularly frightened of all things that fly. i think it all stems from the time i was driving with james and decided it would be fun to drive into a small flock of birds to see them scatter. they didn’t scatter. i am forever traumatized. also when i was a kiddo my dad was attacked by a swan. yeah. so having ducks and birds all up in my business made for one nervous Mama. but Harry loved it, so i put on a brave face.
Harry also loves the no pants dance. that’s what i call it.
