A new game we like to play around here is hide and seek! I will be the one who hides and Weston seeks. I usually sit him down and then say "come and find me" in a high, squeaky voice as I run away! It is so much easier playing with a 10 month old! Some fun spots are on the family room floor with a blanket over me, on the side of the couch, or behind the stools. It us so cute watching him try to find me. He actually looks under things and moves stuff out of the way! And sometimes he gets distracted...

A few weeks ago Chad and I had to buy Weston a new car seat. He was outgrowing his carrier and it was getting to the point that I was struggling to buckle him up. We ended up buying the Safety First convertible car seat. It can sit either rear or forward facing and later it will turn into a booster seat for when he gets older. So hopefully it will last a while! At first we were thinking that we should have just started with this car seat (since it is for 5-100 lbs), but the carrier was really nice when he was an infant. We decided to keep the box in the house for a while so Weston can play with it. Well he LOVED it. After a few days of playing with the plain box, I decided to tie my fabric and ribbon scraps to it and write “Weston’s Club on the door. It was a big hit!!
Today I made the yummiest soup!! Chad LOVED it! Click to see the recipe :) YUM! - Chicken Tortilla Soup
I also made 2 Ham, Broccoli, and Cheese Quiches. We are having one of them for dinner tomorrow and the other one is going into the freezer for another night when I am too busy to cook! Love freezer meals. :)

It has been almost 10 days since I posted! Time is FLYING by. The photography business is at its busiest time right now. Everyone wants pictures for holiday cards. I am now learning to say no and that I am booked! I decided not to do many shoots in December because of Weston's birthday and Christmas. The week of his birthday party I am only doing one session and then after that 2 a week. Now until the week of Thanksgiving I have 4-5 sessions a week! I am having lots of fun and we really can use the money, but I am so busy. Some days I even forget to eat breakfast and lunch! That is not like me at all! I love food!!!! This winter I will make up for all of my missed meals. :)

Crawled under the high chair and could not quite figure out how to get out! ;)
First time on the airplane!! He did such a great job. We had a blast in Atlanta!Working on holding the bottle all on his own. This lasts about 10 seconds!
Meeting Sam's puppies for the first time. They are sooooo cute and tiny!
Helping Mommy in the kitchen!
It's getting cold outside! BrrrrWe bought Weston a new car seat. He is having so much fun playing in the box it came in. :) By the way... Go Ravens! The Jersey looks so cute on him!
