10 Months

Two VERY short months until Keifer is ONE! (Which is so weird typing that because I have slacked on updating his blog and as I write this he will be turning one tomorrow!!!) Every day that passes I grow more and more in love with him! I never knew I could love someone so much but I thank God every night for blessing us with him!
There is some big news that came with turning 10 months old, Keifer FINALLY started to crawl on all fours! And let me tell you... He is FAST! So many people have commented to me how fast he can crawl. I think he is making up for lost time. He is thinking wow, why did I wait so long?!?
Keifer's Stats
Weight: 15lbs. 6oz
Size 2 Diapers
Clothes: 3 months and 3-6 months
This is the list of new foods that I have introduced him to this past month....
Cheerios, Cucumbers, Strawberries, Spinach, Rutabaga, Navy Beans, Black Berries, Cinnamon Oatmeal, Grated cheese, Apple slices, Brisket, and crackers
Sleep Schedule has been so bad and off! He has not been taking afternoon naps and waking up twice in the middle of the night. I have had my small group at church praying for us!
He says Dadda, Momma, Banana (which sounds like nana) and dog


Going to the ZOO

 The weather has started to get nice and it puts you in the mood to go outside! So we decided with just a few days shy of 10 months we would take Keifer to the zoo for the first time. Since he is always so observant, studies every thing and LOVES playing with Balboa and Nova, we thought this would be the perfect idea! However, Saturday got here and the weather had cooled down again. It was a little chilly and windy but we were determined to have some fun so we bundled Keifer up and headed to the Gainsville Zoo. Jason had just told me this zoo existed. I had only ever heard of the Dallas or Ft. Worth Zoo but this one is so much closer to us. It is not a very big zoo but for a young child that can't hang all day it's perfect! Just long enough to have a good time and enough animals to get a variety. 

Keifer wasn't near as interested as we thought he would be and was in a very blah mood. Not like him at all but little did we know that he was sick. He started running fever on our way home and his nose was runny. He had gotten his first cold so the next few days we stayed home and let him rest. We decided we would try again when he was feeling better.

Reading the Paper

Jason has been getting the Wall Street Journal in  the mail and we have been just collecting them after he reads them and saves them in a box next to the fireplace. Keifer loves pulling them out of that box and dragging them ALL over the house! I use to stop and pick them up but he would be on my heels pulling them right back out. So I decided to save some time just letting him play with them all day then after he goes to bed, pick them up. Just to start the whole process over again the next day! : )
