abe at 10 months.



runnin' a little late but abe is ten months and holding for a few more weeks at least!

at 10 months:

WAIT. 10 months?! old man abram.

ok, at 10 months:
  • 4 teeth. eating anything he wants. we're trying to transition to milk. but he's not crazy about it so we're kinda doing a mish mash of nursing/milk in a sippy/formula. he's down to nursing just a handful of times a day, like if he wakes up in the night or naptime. 
  • still not up on his knees crawling or pulling up much. but he gets around with his little army crawl! he has pulled up on the bottom stair a few times in pursuit of the brothers. 
  • waves, blows kisses, points, gives high fives, claps. my favorite is the clap. oh my heart! says mama, dada, bubba, papa, bye, ball, and more. tries to imitate a horse and elephant sound and it's the cutest. 
  • loves to be outside and especially loves to swing. he just holds onto the ropes and when you take him out of the swing he screams! swing forever!
  • had a few more surprise ear infections this month because he's either the king of undetected ear infections or i'm the queen of clueless moms. probably a combo. 
  • working diligently to get him to go to sleep on his own. so fun. 
  • sneaky little rascal that puts all the things in his mouth. 
  • LOVES beeping people's nose. he thinks it is the funniest thing and will laugh and laugh. and he has the best raspy laugh in all the land. 
  • momma's boy. 
  • easily the cutest 10 month old around.    
abe is the best. he just is.

2 months.
3 months.
4 months.
5 months.

coker boys and miller girls.

our friends, the millers, have girls the same ages as our oldest boys. isaac henry and mclaine have already decided they're going to get married. and grant (monkey see monkey do) is fast pursuing marriage with his co-part, mallory.

mallory and grant are fire and ice. they fight like crazy and love each other so much. mallory might be the only person that grant considers a friend. because every time we ask him about friends.. like, who did you play with? "mow-ry." who's your best friend? "mow-ry." anything.. "mow-ry." it's the cutest.

a common household phrase around these parts is isaac proclaiming, "i'm going to marry clainey!" and grant chiming in "i marry mow-ry!!"

so just in case our/their wildest dreams come true, i'm just gonna leave these pictures here for safe keeping until it's time to put together the wedding slide show.

























abe will just be over here holding out for another miller sister so he doesn't have to die alone..

isaac says.



after losing a lego and looking "everywhereeeeeeee!" he petitioned me, "momma, can you please call the lost and found??"

praying: God. please let it change into summer. i love you. amen.

asked me if we had any chickfila batteries (triple a batteries).

we were telling isaac that it was time for bed.
isaac: but i have to give my speech!!
bryant: your speech?? what are you giving a speech about?
isaac: numbers, old jokes, christmas. and you have to drive me there! 

after it had snowed i was telling isaac how i liked snow because it reminded me of when Jesus saves us and how he makes our heart clean and white as snow. 
isaac: ..but hearts are pink.


walking through kohl's isaac sees a mannequin in the lingerie department and hollers, "hey baby! lookin' good!" lord help us.

isaac was trying to convince grant to poop in the potty.. "grant, tony stark poops in the potty!"

i changed clothes from yoga pants and a tshirt to a dress. when isaac saw me he said, "you look good momma, but can you put on your other clothes? they looked better." awesome.

bryant and i were working out and isaac henry was watching/encouraging us. 
"you guys don't have to do this if you don't want to."
"momma, when you finish, i'm gonna bring you up a piece of candy!"
best. fitness coach. ever. 

i was putting on a show for isaac and jokingly asked, "what do you wanna watch? the news?"
isaac: yeah. i need to see what the weather's doing. 
"momma. i've got good news and bad news. the good news is that we found jessie's hat. the bad news is that we lost jessie."

isaac: what's today? 
me: monday. 
isaac: so tomorrow is tuesday? 
me: yep. 
isaac: can we have tacos? 
me: sure. 
isaac: what are we eating tonight? pancakes? 
me: no. chili. 
isaac: well you guys can have chili but i'll have pancakes. 
me: no, we're all eating chili. 
isaac: but i don't like chili. 
me: i'll make you a grilled cheese. 
isaac: awww thank you. but i don't want cheese in it. just a hamburger. 

bryant was saying he's the only person that likes pickles and isaac was arguing "lots of people like pickles! in California! in tennessee! and san diego!"

isaac had to take amoxicillin for strep throat and it turns out that isaac is very allergic to amoxicillin. whompwhomp. so he had a pretty ugly rash all over and told me.. "momma, i think what has happened to me is what happened to jonah."

grant is trying to do something and grunts.
isaac: are you tryin' to poop? 

isaac to grant: do you wanna start pooping in the potty or not?
grant: no.
isaac: why?!? you're a big kid! OR ARE YOU A BABY??? 
grant: yeah. 
isaac: well, i guess you're half baby, half big kid.


grant got his first big haircut and afterwards isaac looked at him and said "grant! you look like me!"

bryant and i were talking about baby names and how there is no name that i love for our next kid so i said, "why don't we just call it quits?!" isaac chimed in, "quits?? i don't like that name."

isaac hands me a bugger. [glamorous life i lead.] 
me: what should i do with this bugger???
isaac: put it in your nose.

isaac, asking me: when grant grows up and gets married and i go visit him, can we call him grown up grant? 
me: i guess? 
grant: MY NAME IS GRANT! 

a random dog was playing in our yard and so i was imagining getting a dog for like 15 minutes and bryant was being the reasonable adult and shutting it down.
me: i don't know why you're acting like that! you like dogs! 
bryant: of course i like dogs. who doesn't like dogs?!
isaac henry:  i don't know.. maybe.. BAD PEOPLE.

isaac henry has always been really artistic. but lately he's gotten really into drawing pictures for people and i think it's the cutest. plus, maybe i'm just being a braggy momma (and always will be) but i think he does a pretty darn good job! here's some of his latest drawings:
