    Fun Firsts - He's walking! He took his first steps about a week ago and has been getting a whole lot better at it though he takes some spills.

    Monday Moans - Another ear infection, blah! Starting running a fever during the weekend and is on antibiotics again poor thing

    Time for ME - Not much time for me lately though when little man goes to bed (around 7) and the hubby is at work I sit down and read or watch some TV without interruption

    Hi Allaya9 - Can't believe he is walking! Your world is changing, pace will get slower and faster at the same time!

    Where are all the other mommies???

    Here is a pic of a really interesting sunset from last week. Sunset and storm brewing at the same time.

    LO's Age and Stats - He is 10 months now and I cant believe it. 18 pounds and some odd onces.

    Fun Firsts - Well we are waiting for him to take his first steps but it hasnt happened yet still cruisin around with his walker he is so fast I think he is going to be a runner rather than a walker lol. I guess he did learn to dig in his puffs and pull the top off and start eating them right out of the canister I usually have to put them on the table.

    Monday Moans - Well its now Friday but wow its been a LONG week picked up extra shifts at work.

    Time for ME - Time for me haha. When Kaden goes down to bed I usually clean or put my head phones in and jam it makes me feel brand new with a positive additude. Hubby has had way to many friends at the house this week so extra cleaning for me and not a lot of space to go be alone oh well.

    The positive this week its our county fair! Oh how I love fair food! Going tonight after im done with work. Hubby brought Kaden the other day and I guess he loves it. I cant wait to see his reaction to all the lights and what not tonight. Only three more hours I can do this lol.
    Hope everyone has a good weekend.
