Climb every mountain

Curly is ten months old today. Can’t believe how quickly we’re inching towards one year. We actually bought him his birthday onesie this past week and are making plans, but not big ones, for his birthday gathering. Curly’s new-found 10-month skill is climbing. Up until now, he has been sticking with the big bottom step area leading from our living room to the staircase. Our daycare provider has a sunken living room that he likes to climb out of, so it wasn’t a big leap to try it with a stair at home…until he kept going that is, right up to the top (with us spotting him of course). He kept making frustrated/determined grunts throughout, but he made it. The new baby gate is getting installed today 😉

The highlight of our weekend was a play date with W over at Creating Motherhood. W and Curly are very close in age so it was totally cute seeing them both in action, from sharing toys to eating together to crawling everywhere and climbing over one another. We all had a lovely lunch and also took the boys to the swings. Oh, and to celebrate the occasion, Nutella made, for the first time, nutella cupcakes with strawberry frosting. They were delish, and we replaced our blog header photo with her creation. Not the kind of cupcakes our Cupcake will get for his first birthday, but there’s definitely something in the works for him.

Not so sure about this, mommy!

  1. I can’t believe how big he’s getting! Go, Miles!

    Looks like he had a great time with his pal. Those swings were the best…wish I could still fit in them. 🙂

  2. PS – where did you get his great shoes?

  3. His shoes are by “Goody Goody”

    But we found them used at a consignment sale.

  4. Yum! Those look good.

  5. completely adorable to see those two together — and I hope that they’ll do it when they’re old guys too!

  6. Next in Line

    I can’t believe that he can do so many things now. I excited about his birthday already.

  7. Look at him go! Little mountian goat!

    What a fun day for you and the boys and the cupcakes, YUM!

  8. whoa, look at him go! crazy how mobile he is already!

    the cupcakes look yummy! 🙂

  9. Wow 10 months! Its going by so fast! We too are planning a bday party, and while we have said all along it will be small, its getting harder and harder to keep it that way!

    I’m so glad we don’t have stairs! Its hard enough keeping track of two crawling babies without worrying about the stairs. You girls are quick with the gate though!

    Miles and his friend look so cute together… I wonder if our boys have the brother thing going or if they are just going to be stingy because they have gotten to the point of stealing eachothers toys on purpose then tossing them and watching the other one cry! Its cute now, but I’m sure that won’t be the case in a few months!

  10. Wow he is so big, and so accomplished! Looks like the boys are having a blast together–so cute. Those cupcakes look delish. Happy 10 months, Miles!

  11. Wow, he’s growing so quickly! I love the picture of the two boys crawling together!

  12. awwww! I LOVE these photos!
    Still amazed at how advanced Miles is with mobility.

  13. Mmm…now I want to make cupcakes…

    Miles is so big! I love the sweet serene little expressions he makes. Very old soul.
