My Baby Is 10 Months Old Today :-(
My Sweet little one is 10 months old today. It is so unfair that they grow up so quickly. In 2 short months he will be one year old. I love him so very much and cant believe that his 1st birthday is going to smack me upside the head soon with a reality check that I will no longer EVER have a little baby again. I'm gonna soak up the the snuggles and hugs and squeezes as much as I can and rock him (although he hasnt let me in months) all the time.

Come join me in Family Fridays.. Write about something You and your family have done together over the past week or plan on doing, whether it be watching a family friendly movie, a fabulous family recipe, a fun family recipe your child(ren) helped with, a fantastic family game, products your family thinks are far out, or just simply taking a family trip out and about. Whatever it may be we would love to hear about it!

Just add your name to Mr. Linky

Mommy & Son Giggle Fits

Today my 3 1/2 year old had my laughing so hard that we both could not stop laughing. My almost 10 month old went down for a nap and I was tired, So me and Guy cuddled up in his bed "trying" to take a nap.

First he says to me.

"Mommy you smell like chocolate" *chocolate is his favorite and the way he said it was hysterical.

Then you have to have a boy to appreciate this. I hear him singing "rock a baby, rock a baby" over and over for several minutes..

I turn around to see what he was doing, he has his hands cupped together swinging them back and forth as if he had a baby in them singing "rock a baby, rock a baby". So I take a closer look.. What was he rocking?? A BOOGER!!!!! Yes a booger. I was laughing so hard even though it was so gross. For 5 minutes he was putting a booger to sleep.

Then he says.. "mommy my bed stinks"
I know that's the spot he drules in so I said "move closer to mommy".
He said " mommy you stink too!!"

Again laughing so hard because I had just showered so I know I didn't smell.

Kids are too funny!!! What a clown!!! I have to write these things down so that at times like this right now where he wont go to sleep, I can look back and laugh.
