Happy 10 month birthday, Presley girl!
|Showing off her bottom teeth!|
Alright, so, there have been a TON of changes this past month!
- We've got a big, bad CRAWLER on our hands! And I'm talking, belly OFF the floor kinda crawling. One day last week she just decided that she was gonna get a move on and the rest was history.
- I believe we will be moving to your bigger car seat pretty soon! You still fit in your baby one, but you sure are pushing its limits. I think you will be more comfortable but it will be tough for me... just another indication that you are growing up!
So, I would be lying if I didn't mention that I am a bit bummed we won't be starting any Christmas traditions for our little family of 3 this year. Because when I think about how nice a relaxing Christmas at home would be, it sounds pretty darn wonderful. Plus, babies are just not made for traveling, if you ask me! Though, I know if we stayed home for Christmas we would end up being pretty damn sad and just wishing we were with my in-laws and sisters the entire time.
Plus, like my sister and I talked about, our kids are so small now that it won't matter a ton in the big scheme of things... it's not like they will have any true memories about this first Christmas! So, I am just telling myself that we will have another year to prepare for any and all family Christmas traditions we look forward to sharing together.
With that said, any sacrifice is worth the reward we'll be gaining because we will be spending time with our family whom we only get to see a few times a year. That includes traveling to Memphis, Nashville, and possibly Chattanooga (gotta iron out those plans). We'll be having another big "first" along with Presley's FIRST Christmas and that will be first plane ride! I'm just a wee bit anxious about how it will go, especially since Presley hates to sit still now that she has started crawling... but she really is such an easy-going kid. Now, any tips/tricks/advice for flying with a baby in tow - send them my way and don't be shy! I really would like to take our Boppy with because I can't imagine being without it, but I'm just not sure we'll have room since the plan is (for now) to not check any bags. We are flying with Delta, which I am super pumped about because they still serve in-flight snacks (SWEET!) and have no problem with us bringing our car seat and stroller (not sure if we'll bring that or not) and neither of those things count towards our carry ons! Woo!
In other news, we just had our first big snow of the year. This resulted in Presley and I being home bound all day. Which resulted in these silly pictures.
Happy ten months, Presley Rose. Ten down and only two to go until we're all celebrating your super special first birthday! Very hard to believe but even more exciting.
