10 months

Wow. Jason is now 10 months old. He is not much of a baby anymore, and that makes me sad! I saw a baby the other day in the mall that was sooo tiny, that I had to ask the mother how much he weighed. He was 7 pounds. That's way more than Jason weighed at birth, and almost twice what his lowest weight got to. I have no memory of him being that tiny, much less smaller than that baby!
Look at him! He looks like a teeny tiny baby doll!

Now that he's in the double digits of age, he's pulling up and crawling on everything. We have gotten this gate/playyard thing and put it around our couch. We tried to make it just a rectangle, but Jason didn't like playing in it without us. So, now we've included the couch, and we call the whole area the "Booger Bear Palace". We mainly have it to protect him from the dogs running like crazy. They haven't hurt him yet, but I just get scared when Peanut hears someone at the door and flies from wherever he is to check it out. Now, with the Booger Bear Palace, Jason is protected, and Peanut still has an alley to run through! Everyone wins!

The other day (3/3/10), Justin took Jason outside for a photo shoot to celebrate 10 months. Since it was a little cold outside, Justin put his hat on Jason. What's funny is that one month ago, that hat swallowed him up! Now, it's not so big! Justin had gotten a new toy camera, and the black and white pictures are with the new camera (Holga Twin Lens Reflex). The color ones are with his real camera (Canon 5D Mark II). I actually like the Holga ones, which is funny, since the Holga camera only cost $60! The Canon, well, it costs waaaay more. Anyway, I hope you enjoy!

My favorite of the bunch! Guess who he is looking at?

Another fun thing he does now: when I am holding him, he sometimes puts his arms around my neck and hugs me. My sweet baby...I made him from scratch!

Field Trippin'

Justin took his RHS Art Club on a field trip around Jackson. He had Jason and me come along as chaperones.

I really wasn't too keen on the idea of bringing Jason, since I thought he would be a handful. Boy, was I wrong! Turns out that teenaged girls love babies, or at least, my baby, and they took him over the minute I got on the bus.

They even held him while we ate!

We went to Mississippi College and toured the art department and the galleries there. Then, we went to Two Sisters to eat, and then walked next door to the Commons and toured their galleries. We finished up with a trip to Cups, which was really just to keep us from getting back to school before the bell rang. It was loads of fun!
