M&M Cutie

Growing up, we never really celebrated Halloween. I still don't want to make a big deal about it. Carsyn has this cute little green M&M onesie given to her way back before she was born. It made the perfect little costume without going overboard.

We went to some friends house for the evening. They have a little parade for the neighborhood kids.

Happy 10 month Birthday!

Is anyone else shocked by how fast the last 10 months have gone by???

At 10 months you are nothing shy of amazing.

You wear size 3 diapers.

You wear 12 month clothes.

You adore your daddy.

You are always so happy. Workers in the church nursery think you're fantastic.

You don't need a baby bath tub any more.

You can feed yourself now too. Peas, Carrots, Rice, Puffs.

You're actually drinking out of your sippy cup now.

You're a master crawler.

You pull up on everything, but aren't confident enough to let go.

You say "momma momma, momma momma".

You've also said 'dadadadadada". You're giving it a little rest right now, but I know you'll pick it back up soon.

You love to snuggle and pat. We pick you up and you pat pat pat on us.

You wear shoes almost every day.

You clap when you're excited.

You've been going to bed around 7 every night and sleeping until I come get you around 6.

You take a three hour nap at Ms. Brandy's.

You're basically the best baby ever.

We're so happy you're in our family too! :-)

Baby's First Boo

I know it's the day before Halloween, but Carsyn had to wear something cute to Ms. Brandy's house.

Hey! Look at my cool new shoes. I love them.

It's Rough Being Elmo

So I was looking at the blog today. Despite all evidence to the contrary, we do have more than one outfit and more than one set of BabyLegs for Carsyn. I guess she just did all the cute stuff in one day. And we go lucky enough to make it through one day in one outfit.
Here is Carsyn having fun with Elmo!

Big People Food

Carsyn and I ate the same food for supper on Saturday night. We had brown rice and yellow squash. Yum Yum.


I'm a little late in posting this. Tony and I got some amazing tickets for the game. His buddy, Donovan, got two tickets from someone else for FREE!! They were on the 50 yard line. I sat right next to these two really old Texas fans. Carsyn spent the weekend with Granny and Papa T. A fun time was had by all!

Pumpkin Patch!

We went to a HUGE pumpkin patch this afternoon. It was CRAZY busy. We're brave/stupid parents and went in the middle of Carsyn's normal nap time. Once again she proved she is the best baby. She was so happy the whole time. Carsyn likes being outside and looking at people. She's nosey like that.

She really didn't know what to think of sitting on the hay surrounded by pumpkins.

Peek-a-boo it's Carsyn the friendly ghost.

We went with Sean and Lisa and Noah.

Somebody sure loves her daddy!

Noah was so sweet to hold Carsyn for this pic.

Clearly the wagon was not her favorite part of the day.

She loves her little pumpkin. It was a great day!

Garage Sale Diva

Our neighborhood had a garage sale today. Now, I'm going to be honest. I like a good garage sale. Some people don't. Think it's just someones useless junk. I'm a little more hopeful. Especially when it comes to baby/kid things.

We had a successful morning.
1. exercise - walked whole neighborhood
2. two new toys - ark and some other thing with animals
3. cute book
4. 2 swim suits with built-in floaties
5. best find of the day - hook on chair!!! I've been looking at one for $60 at Babies-R-Us
Grand Total $20 LOVE a bargain.
To top it off, everyone said Carsyn was so cute with her bow, so sweet, such a happy baby...makes a momma proud!

Peas and Carrots

As Carsyn grows, so does her food. She is doing an amazing job of feeding herself. Quite the unique skill really. She grabs as many pieces in her hand as possible and then shoves what will fit into her mouth. Then she'll use the back of her hand to hold it all in while she chews. The girl is smart. Hate for any to fall out!

Play Date

A couple of us from church with babies got together this afternoon for a Fall play date. All the kids played so well.
Carsyn wanted to share her toys. She is the oldest, but everyone weighs about the same. She is a little aggressive. She knocked Logan down. We're working on gentle touches.

Can you say proud momma? A few cameras to capture the moment.

London Bridges...

OR...Daddy Bridges. Look at Carsyn playing underneath her new found bridge.

Note the white hanger in Carsyn's hand? We, much like the Native Americans of long ago, believe in using all parts of an item. We get a new dress. The hanger becomes our play toy. It's so fashionable to be Green.

Nine Month Vitals

Carsyn had a check up yesterday. She was such a sweet baby. She laughed and played. Peed all over the sheet. All the things a baby is supposed to do.
weight: 19 lbs 9 oz
height: 28 1/2 inches
Head circ: 45 cm

All in the 75%

The doctor said she is normal and healthy. Mentioned that she didn't have ballerina legs. That's true. They are strong and sturdy.

Carsyn loves to crawl into the kitchen at my mom's house. It's where the action is. How fun is it to get underneath the island and discover what Granny has laying around.

Potatoes! A Scale!
