Happy 10.months.old Calvin Dean!!  You are growing so fast & furiously.  It is amazing to watch you learn new things & become more adventurous everyday.  My favorite thing that you do, almost daily, is your little head-bobbing-dance in your high chair when you enjoy what you're eating!!  I have tried in vain to get it on video, but you just get this please-as-punch look on your face and you sway!  Aahhh, I hope I always remember that little dance move.  It warms my heart.

melt momma's heart wearing a baby peacoat!!  This was your brother Hayden's.  ;-)
1st bath with your big brothers!  CRAZY.  but fun.

Oh.Calvin. You are quite the climber!!  I laugh & joke, but you really aren't impressed with toys.  You'd rather climb the stairs or try to scale my dresser (using only the knob pulls).  Today you pulled up on the kitchen chairs, and then made a reach&grab for the table top!!  Who knows what you expect to happen next, pull yourself up using only your arm strength?!?  I am continuously surprised.

1st time in the sandbox!

1st time in the grocery buggy with Hayden!
You are the happiest baby.  You are doing more baby talk these days, cooing, and lots of laughs.  You laugh at your brothers quickly & easily.  You are so ticklish & we all love give your tickles & raspberries.  You are just a joy.

all 3 on Grandpa's back for a horsey ride! haha

FILLING up the bassinet
Your sweet romper from hOpscotch kids - your brothers love the blast-off-rocket-ship!

The fun of sitting with you to play.  The sweet peace of having my coffee & watching you play while your bros sleep in.  LOVELY sunshine waking us all up.  Hoping to capture this moment so I can relive it again in the years to come.

I have to say, of all the baby carriers I've used (which are many), my favorite for infants was the Happy Wrap (very similar to Moby but lighter weight fabric).  My favorite for after 14/15 pounds is the ergo baby.  I was fortune enough to borrow one to try out, because they are pricey, but absolutely loved it because it is just so easy to use & so comfortable.  I needed to return it & tried using an alternative one. I ended up with a really stiff back!!  Calvin is over 20 lbs now & we had to hunt one down on craigslist.  Lucky us!  Love it & so does he.

This adorable, big, happy baby absolutely lights up my life.  Calvin Dean, you are dearly loved.
