Anticipation is building...someone has a birthday next week and he's more than excited!

He makes this exact surprised face all the time. And then he points. Doesn't matter where, but his pointer finger goes up as if there's something exciting or magical.

Steve, Hunter and I took a quick trip to Disneyland to celebrate Hunter's birthday - fortunately this mouse did not go with us!

When I look back at pictures over the last couple months, I can't believe how much Can Man has grown. They go from infant baby to toddler in no time. He's pulling up on all the furniture and getting bumps and bruises in the process. He crawls on his hands and knees unless he's on the hardwood floors and then he army crawls (too slippery to crawl!) He can hold a sippy cup and drink from it sitting up without any help. This is a huge milestone!!

He's found his pointing finger and points to everything.

As of two days ago, he's no longer a nursing baby and I'm not sad about it one bit. It was good while it lasted!

He's 11 months and I'm down to one feeding a day with this guy. He takes the sippy cup like a champ and pounds the food. He had his first try of ice cream. He got more on his face than in his mouth and he was loving every minute.

He is into everything. All the time. He will find anything that is not secured shut. He does not do stairs and we've barricaded the staircase.

After being woombie free for 3 months, I broke down today and put him in it. We have been struggling (for over a month) with sleeping during the day - corresponding with him becoming completely mobile. He gets in his crib and immediately sits up or stands and refuses to lay down. And no, he will not cry himself to sleep. Seeing him exhausted today, I put him down for a nap and he cried and cried. After a while, I rummaged through the garage to find the box of baby clothing and I pulled out a woombie and swaddled him.

That stinker fell asleep within 5 minutes!! I was elated to have a napping child in the afternoon and then disgusted with myself that I resorted back to the swaddle. Desperate times call for desperate measures. I want to think I'm strong enough to not use it again - but there's a part of me that can't be trusted.

Yep, he's big.

Every week he's growing and learning new skills. I really just want him to master one skill: sleeping. He needs more sleep. He wakes up early and fights naps like crazy. We consistently have an inconsistent sleeping schedule and it needs to change!

One thing I'm totally loving these days: his smile. His four tooth smile is killing me.

Full of laughs and giggles - he loves the tickle monster - which ends up being just about anyone in the family.
Life with Fingerprints: Weekly baby photo, chalkboard prints, weekly onesie
The stage he's in right now is tough. He's everywhere, climbing up on anything he can hold on to and he gets around quickly. I found myself putting the same books back on the shelf day after day - it only took me a few days to realize I was losing a battle and I removed the books all together.

Look at that smile - he's lovable!

He's ten months and he is a mover and a shaker. He's pulling up on things all over the house. He still army crawls, dragging is belly which makes for some awesome dirty shirts, but our floors appear to be cleaner. His top two teeth just poked through and I'm hoping that was the cause of our terrible two week napping fiasco.

Oh sweet child of mine - I love you to pieces and I think you are just about the cutest thing on the face of the earth. However, it has been two weeks now of you not taking naps. Two weeks! I'm not looking for three naps, not even looking for two naps. I just want you to close your eyes some time during the day and sleep. I'm flexible as to when that should happen. I will be happier and you will be happier if we can make that work! Love, mom.

Obviously life is far too fun for sleeping for this guy. Too many places to explore, too many toys to put in his mouth, this house is his playground. After 10 months of sleeping in the laundry room, we finally moved Bennett out of the crib and Cannon finally got an upgrade to a bedroom. I would think his lack of naps was related to the move, but he dropped naps about a week before we transitioned. He's started crawling all over the place and now goes from crawling to sitting. And then the naps stopped. Its as if he can't soothe himself anymore. I walk in after a great deal of him crying and he's just sitting in the crib. Tired as can be rubbing his eyes, but the minute I lay him down he sits right back up. It's a mystery. I'm telling myself its a stage that he's just on the cusp of getting over.

Its a good thing he has a million dollar smile!

We sent the kids to school and this guy is my main man all day long. We snuggle and laugh and I follow after him cleaning up his messes.

He scoots around the house non-stop and has mastered the high pitch squeal. He's starting to pull up on things which inevitably means he's more a likely to fall. His two bottom teeth finally poked through and his top tooth is close. His favorite time of the day - the minute the kids come in the door from school, ready to play with and hold him.

So long summer...your lazy summer days have been good to us. Until next year.
Life with Fingerprints: Weekly baby photo, chalkboard prints, weekly onesie
He's started scooting around the room. I can no longer leave him in a place and expect to find him there 3 minutes later. Which means we got some work to do to make sure we're officially baby proofed. Legos are going to be the death of me. I find them everywhere and I'm trying to train the kids; we've got our work cut out. His best friends (his siblings) are on their way to school tomorrow and I've got a feeling he's going to be a little lonely! He adores them and they play with him so much. It will be a happy reunion when they step off that bus!

We've spent more time in the water and on the water this week than any week this summer. My kids constantly smell of sunscreen and popsicles and my washing machine is always full of towels.
Life with Fingerprints: Weekly baby photo, chalkboard prints, weekly onesie
Cannon's napping is sporadic at best and I'm hoping with summer coming to an end next week he'll finally be on a schedule again. We had family here this past week and he was loved more than he could handle.

His cousins took turns holding him, playing with him, feeding him and giving him every possible toy that was out of reach. I'm convinced with the kids starting school soon he's going to start crawling because nobody will constantly be shoving toys at him, he's going to have to work to get a toy in his hand!

Our little "Cannon"ball is 9 months old.
Life with Fingerprints: Weekly baby photo, chalkboard prints, weekly onesie

This guy is a pool regular these days. There's a reason why kids in Arizona learn to swim at such young ages - we start them in the pool pretty young.

He's a solid boy weighing in at 19 lbs (50%) and 29 inches tall (95%). He's built the most like Mr. B. We're expecting him to be mobile any time now, but I'm not looking forward to it. It's funny because your first kid you want them to hit all their milestones as quickly as possible - if they don't they're doomed to be in diapers forever. Then you have a couple kids and you're grateful that they're not crawling around because they're much easier to keep an eye on when they just sit at your feet.

At nine months he's still breastfeeding, although its growing more and more difficult as he gets older and easily distracted. Because of his height, all of his onesies and sleepers are 12-18 months and he's still in a crib in the laundry room. He's learned to drink from a straw and is getting better at getting food to his mouth, although right now he's mastering "fist" eating.

Give me a couple weeks and I just may have manipulated his first words to be momma. There's got to be some perks to staying home with the kid all day!

He's ready to rock. He's mostly working on his high pitched vocals, but he's pretty much mastered them.Life with Fingerprints: Weekly baby photo, chalkboard prints, weekly onesie
We've entered a new realm with this guy - his sister loves to feed him and begs to feed him each meal. I can't describe how awesome this is. I don't always take her up on it, especially it it's something that stains...but you better believe, she gets to feed him oatmeal everyday and it makes her day, and mine! I'm dreading her going back to school in three weeks. She is the biggest help and she enjoys it, he's a glorified baby doll...if only I could get her to change his diapers!

That boy, that smile, those legs. I want to eat them all!
Life with Fingerprints: Weekly baby photo, chalkboard prints, weekly onesie
He's mastered sitting and it's really convenient to give him a bucket of toys to sit and sort through. He's developed this piercing, high pitch scream which isn't so adorable. Still no teeth, yet every night that he wakes up screaming I swear it's because he's teething. No proof yet!

He likes to mimic sounds that we make and then proudly smile. He's also picked up a new skill of shaking his head back and forth, smiling the whole time of course. He's a happy kid.

He's finally sitting! And he's been sitting right in front of the television soaking up the world cup. And even though we're really disappointed to have the U.S. out of it - it won't stop us from watching it til' the end!
Life with Fingerprints: Weekly baby photo, chalkboard prints, weekly onesie
We've had a couple really rough night's with this one. Saturday night he was up from 12:30am - 5am. Not just up, but miserable and crying - and still no teeth. It was at 4:15 that morning, in my tired and frustrated state that I took the woombie (swaddle) off and we haven't gone back. I figured if he was going to be up all night, we might as well make some adjustments and I knew the swaddle would be a tough one. It's been three days and I'm confident in saying we're done with it.

After his all-nighter, the next morning he rolled right into the door frame and it left its mark with a large goose egg and two large scratches. It was just not his day!

Luckily he's been feeling much better and he's happy as can be and we finally got around to his second hair cut.

I'm not sure if he's teething or if he's just come down with something but he's been pretty miserable. He's fevered, lacks interest in nursing, and can't sleep at night to save his life! Last night we had a three hour rendezvous and he cried the majority of it. Ugh. At times he's lethargic, his eyes are watery, he's stuffed up, he's coughing. I'm hoping I see signs of a tooth soon, because if he's going through all this and I'm losing sleep, he might as well get some teeth out of it!

We visited one of our favorite ice cream stands this week. There were tears, blue stained lips and shirts, ice cream headaches and plenty of goodness.

This guy is officially sitting. He's still a little wobbly but he is sitting on his own for long amounts of time. We went on a long road trip last week, the longest time he had spent in his carseat, and he was not a happy camper. He now cries every time we put him in his carseat, not a good position to be in!

Hunter has mastered making him laugh and Hallie has mastered the side hip hold - even when I ask everyone to leave him alone, somehow Hallie manages to find a reason to hold him!

He's started waking up two times a night...we're going backwards and its exhausting. The other night he was up from 11:15pm to 4am - that is worse than a newborn!

This guy gets more yummy with each passing day. He is loved and adored on every possible front. There isn't a family gathering where he's not passed around from cousin to aunt to cousin to grandparent. There's advantages to being the youngest in a family with so much family - plenty of people to love on your kids!

Life with Fingerprints: Weekly baby photo, chalkboard prints, weekly onesie

He's got the best giggle and an awesome closed mouth grin that push his cheeks to his eyes.

He likes to roll to his stomach and flap his arms and legs as if he's swimming. Its funny to watch because he really flaps hard and I think he believes flapping that hard moves his body, as if he's crawling. Silly kid.

After a couple days of sleepless days and nights we went back to swaddling. He's happier and we're happier. We'll try again in a month!
