TEN Months!

We got the chair back out... and Callie learned how to climb.

She walks around... can you tell?

and finds the toys that she wants to play with...
and what gratuitous picture post would be complete without a sleeping baby picture?

New Carseat!

She's really a lot happier about it than she looks.
I've been coveting this carseat since before Callie was born, when I started researching them. It's a Britax Marathon and has high weight limits so that she can rear face longer* but is a little bit spendy. I found this one on sale ($100 off!), in a cute pattern, so I jumped.
*the research that I found indicates that kids are as much as 6 times safer rear-facing and the AAP recommends rear-facing until at least age 2 AND the limits of the seat - which is why the high weight limit is important. I've got a lot to say about this - if you want to know more, just ask. :)

Callie and Anthony (and Lindsey, too)



Callie taking a break with Joan, my sister's Mother-In-Law.
This is what Joan was laughing at in the other picture. Haley has no fear. And her PoPo thought that it would be a grand idea to set up the Little Tykes Slide next to the pool. Haley agreed.

Milestone City

1) Callie is up to three steps at a time, definately On Purpose. She is especially willing to walk if she can finagle whipped cream as a reward.

2) Last night was Night Four of Sleeping Through (or basically through) the night. No tears involved on the part of the Mama OR the Baby. Go on ahead. Be jealous.
