10 months


You are 10 months old. It's so hard to believe in just 2 short months we will celebrate your 1st birthday!

You are 17 lbs and 26.25 inches long. You are still our little peanut. 

You are still breastfed, take bottles during the week. You love dinner time when we all sit at the table and have dinner together. You love to eat whatever mommy and daddy are having. Your favorite things so far are ground beef and beans. You have a jar of puréed as well as whatever else you get in your mouth. You do really well using a sippy cup so hopefully that makes the transition from the bottle easier. 

This month you got 3 teeth!  Now you have 5. 

You are in size 6-9 month clothes, size 3 shoes, and size 2 diapers. 

We've had a busy month and next month will be wen busier. You were baptized and had a family celebration. You had your first Halloween and dressed up as a black cat. 

One of the biggest things that happened is you have started to walk in your own. You are growing up so fast!

Ranch Chicken

A new favorite recipe for our house is Ranch Chicken.  This was given to us by a family member in our wedding cook book, but we had never tried it until a few weeks ago.  It's very easy and we could probably have this once a week and I'd be happy!

Ranch Chicken
3/4 Cup crushed cornflakes (I use crushed rice krispies)
3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 envelope dry ranch dressing mix
8 boneless skinless chicekn breast halves (Approximatley 2 lbs.)
1/2 cup butter, melted

In shallow bowl, combine crushed cornflakes, parmesan cheese, and dry ranch dressing mix.  Dip chicken in melted butter then roll in the cornflake mixture.  Place in greased 9x13x2 baking dish.  Bake uncovered 45 minutes or until juices run clear.

It's so moist and yummy!  Blair LOVES it- last night she just keep reaching for more.  We have also coated pork chops in this and it's good too.

No pictures, but I wanted to share this super easy meal.

A month Collage

I'm hoping to get back in a blogging mode, so to start a collage I made of Blair from the day she was born until her 9th month.

I cannot believe she'll be 10 months next week!

I've been in a blogging rut, just don't know what to share or topics to begin with.  On top of that life has been crazy!  I know it will only get worse with the holidays, but I hope to keep up better than just once a month.
