Is this really my kid?

Sometimes I look at Easton and cannot believe he is mine. Case and I, with Heavenly Fathers help, created this amazing little person! Easton is filled with personality and brings so much joy. I am afraid I maul the poor kid daily and smoother him in smooches constantly. I cannot get enough of him. I love him and feel so blessed he belongs to me. I think he is pretty dang cute if I do say so myself ;)

10 months old!!!!

Easton James
10 months old

Easton Loves:
baby einstein

Easton Hates:
being wiped
getting dressed
having his diaper changed
sitting still

A lot has changed in this past month. Easton is now a very fast scooter. He likes to stand holding on to things and he cruises around the furniture very slowly. He loves for us to hold his hands and walk/run him around the house. The faster we go the more he enjoys it. His little legs getting moving so fast and he can totally keep up. Both Case and I think he will be a speedy little bugger. He also tries to climb over or lunge off of everything.

He loves playing peekaboo with blankets. He can now wave bye bye, clap his hands, and give high fives. He insists on feeding himself and finally figured out how to hold his sippy cup. He is a very determined young man. He decided he was done nursing and basically weaned himself. At first I was really sad, but now I am loving the freedom of not having to pump at work!!!!

Easton makes the funniest noises. He always trills his tongue and makes these high little yelping noises. He says bah bah, momma, dada, and yeah. Yeah is my favorite and it kinda of sounds like uh yeah.

He is starting to learn how to be a stinker. He will look at Casey or I right before he is about to do something naughty and will shakes his head no, no. He can also shake his head yes but uses no a lot more often. He also has started throwing things out of the high chair, bath, shopping cart, car seat, etc.... He thinks he is hilarious. He also gets very upset when we take something away from him that he wants but shouldn't have. He basically flings himself on the floor crying. Isn't that supposed to happen during the terrible twos? We are in trouble!!!

Easton is really starting to love his books. This makes my heart happy as I am a fellow book lover. He can turn the pages on his own and will pat the characters and feel the little touch and feel patches on each page. He babbles the whole time like he is reading the story out loud.

We are so in love with our little man and feel like the time is flying by way too fast. It has been hard for me to let go of my sweet little baby and see him get closer and closer to the toddler stage. I kind of want to freeze time for a little while and just keep Easton little. I am sure many other moms feel the same way. Its hard to watch your babies grow up!!

Easton's first Easter

Easter has always been on of my favorite holidays. I remember that getting a pretty new dress was such a big deal to me. Well and the candy is the best candy all year!
I had a hard time picking out E's Easter outfit. I found the jacket and those adorable socks first and knew I had to have white shorts to go with them. This was not an easy task. When I finally found some they were $32!!!! I couldn't justify spending that much on something he was bound to wear only a few times and probably ruin anyway. After much heartache over walking away from the $32 pair, H&M came to the rescue. I think the outfit turned out to be darling. The tiny Sperry's were just the icing on the cake. I thought he looked so adorable I just had to do a photo shoot.
He didn't really care much about anything in his basket aside from the paper grass. He wanted to eat it so bad!!! Silly baby boy. It was a fun first Easter for our little man. So thankful for our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. He has given us everything and brings so much peace and joy!
