ten months!

Ten months...really? 
Where does the time go?
I wrote a {day in the life} post  forever ago.  Or at least it seems like forever.  It was when Baby Cormac was only six weeks old.  You can read it {here.}  When I look back at that time I realize how things have changed.  As brave of a face as I put on, at that point I was:
Those first eight weeks of motherhood were a bear.  Labor was almost easier than the "new mama" adjustment/survival period.  

Each month since then has gotten easier -- and more fun!  
Watching this little baby grow from a quiet, completely dependent little poop machine into an  
an interactive, high-energy, intense and actually fun 
little boy --
has been awesome.

Our days have have also changed, morphing from being completely different and unexpected every day, to a routine that makes me and baby a lot happier.

Ten month updates:
Still 20 pounds.
Has four teeth.
Sleeps 12 hours every night, without a peep.
Took three steps completely on his own this week...but none since.
Sooooo close to walking, though!
Says "mama" and "dada" but we're not sure 
who he's really addressing.

Only two months until his first birthday party -- ah!
I just finished designing the invitations...
can't wait to share!
