Some days I ask myself "Is being a mom really supposed to be this much fun?" Yes, we have our meltdowns, but overall being a mother is the best thing in the world! So many moments I want to stop time and be in that moment forever with him.
He loves to laugh and play. He thinks Mayer is the best thing ever. He chases him around, tries to chew on his toys, and loves to play in the water bowl. It is great entertainment and tons of laughs around our house these days.
Since today is actually "the day after" he is 10 months old, I was thinking about the day after he was born...I remember being in that hospital room and just being so proud and amazed that Brian and I were now parents! Not really having a clue what I was doing, but knowing that God had somehow prepared us for this along the way(I guess all those years of babysitting for me could count for something!) just calmed my crazy nerves.
For Tanner to be born on Thanksgiving Day just says it all...He is a blessing to us! I am so thankful for so many things ...the wonderful nurses that came running when we called,wonderful parents, family, and friends that came to cheer us on and love on Tanner, and for our church family and friends that brought us supper for so many weeks after he was born. So, I don't really know that any of this makes sense to you, but it has been on my mind to share something since he is now another month older...the pressures of blogging, I guess! Laura

At almost 10 months I am...
crawling everywhere, pulling up and taking some steps, starting to eat some table foods, exploring, keeping Mommy and Daddy very busy chasing me around, listening to music and dancing, enjoy playing with my friends at daycare, loving to follow Mayer around the house and lay on top of him, yelling "mama" when I am mad or hungry and saying "dada" any other time, eating yogurt (one of my favorites), enjoying taking strolls around the neighborhood, love to ride in the shopping cart, waving at people, and just being all boy!
Tanner is truely a blessing in our lives. Brian and I are just so thankful for our family. God has been so good to us and has already taught us so much as parents. On another note, we are continuing to pray that Tanner's urinary reflux is healing as he is growing. He has a doctor's appt. in Memphis at the end of December to have another VCUG to see if it is correcting itself. So, please continue to pray that God has his healing hand on him and that we do not have to think about having surgery in the near future. In Christ, Laura

It doesn't take me long to get around the house anymore. It looks like I'm not afraid of the dark either because I love to go in the bathroom when the lights are off and investigate my surroundings. Maybe I like the bathroom so much because I know that's where I get my baths.

This was after my 9 month check up on Thursday. Nurse Lindy drew some blood from my finger and I loved the way my band-aid rubbing across the rug sounded. Finally, my band-aid fell off because I kept dragging it on things and chewing on it-gross!
