Wells is Ten Months

well, he’s a bit more than 10 months now but posts are late these days.

Mister is such a big kid – wanting to walk, talk, pull up and move around. He’s got to keep up around here and I just wish time would just slow down.

He’s a big cheeser, hair puller and hugger. He’s starting to tantrum when he doesn’t get his way. He’s found his voice and calls everything da or ba.

His little pointer finger makes a regular appearance and I just can’t get over how animated and cute he is. With 4 teeth he has quite the chomp and a hefty appetite.


Your first year is flying by little man, I can’t believe it. As we embark on this magical time of year, I can’t help but start to mentally prepare for your first birthday. To make it just as special as Hudson’s and Palmer’s first birthday. You’re our last and I want to relish in all the baby things and special moments as much as I can. Even through your temper tantrums and stubbornness is a sweet soul with so much love. Wells, you’re pure bliss baby and we all love you so very much.

love mama

Work Your Closet - Holiday Gift Guides
  1. Berry bowls w/ saucers $56 – I leave them out because I use them all the time. With kids, I’m constantly rinsing and prepping fruit. Fill the bowls with some holiday snacks or home made cookies or candy in the meantime – after all it’s the key to their heart.
  2. Make it official with a sweet apron with their name on it. Lots of customizable options and support independent artists in the process. $36
  3. One can never have enough – cookbooks last forever. Plus, this one is quite practical. $15
  4. So if they are literally a chef, they might not need a toaster BUT if you’re like me and waffles and bagels and sandwich toast is on the regular, a cute toaster for the pantry is a must.
  5. Coffee. Like really good coffee from a town that means a lot to me. But really, I could have stopped at coffee. Shop their coffee subscriptions for a gift that keeps on giving.
