I can't believe Allistar turned eleven months old on Friday! Seriously!? If the first year flies by like this year has we could have 5 more kids and I wouldn't even notice that I was 40. This won't be happening...I'm just messing around!!
A couple people have been asking for ideas for birthday/Christmas gifts for him already so here's a couple.
Not that I'm against toys but he really doesn't care about the ones we have. He does love hitting things and I think there is a toy drum out there that lights up and plays music. He also looooves Thomas the train right now. A picture for his room of some trains or stuffed trains or even battery operated trains that will fit on the train table are all good bets. We only have 1 Thomas book right now, and it plays sounds and he loves it. We read it every night before bed and most nap times too. I sure would like another train book cuz I'm getting mighty sick of this one. He also likes those books with the fur you can feel, etc. We don't have very many bath toys, but our kids love taking baths together now. We don't have any Thomas DVD's either. Well, that's a great start if I do say so. He could use a scarf for the winter too, and a coat that fits him (size 18months I think). He will be wearing Keegan's old one from last year, but it's a size 2 so it's pretty big still.

Now we can seal up the walls in the basement (they're already insulated) and put up some drywall/wallboard and start using it! The empty shelves will probably just get filled with DVD's when we move some couches and a TV down there. I even have some designated sewing shelves and my old desk to sew on. Now that it's cooler outside we can ignore those projects and focus on some inside ones.

Sorry I haven't been around much. This week has FLOWN by! On friday my little man turned 11 months old. Yyyyyyyyyyyikes! Where has this year gone?! I am sooooooooo sad that he's turning 1 in less than a month. I don't like to think about it. He's so snuggly and this week has been saying "mama" a lot! Saturday I went to a craft show and Nathanael said most of the day he was crawling around saying "mama" looking for me. It just melts me. I'll try report more later, but for now I need to finish organizing my basement onto shelves ...the BEST invention ever!!
