Here ye! Here ye! I'm starting a new tradition in my little corner of blogland today! On the last Thursday of each month I'm going to share with you my favorite pictures from that month for the past few years. Here we go...

Welcome to a new edition of
If you're new around here, every so often I take a post to share all of Clay's bloopers and funny pictures from my phone and camera in a post called Dear Future Girlfriend. You better bet I'll be pulling these out to show a girlfriend one day and hopefully Clay won't hate me too much for these when he's older. ;)

I can't believe Clay's first birthday has snuck up on me! I have a little over a month to get everything done. Eeeek! I picked out the theme (football!) in January but haven't done much since then except pin a few things on Pinterest.
Originally I was going to do a baby divided theme (Steelers and Cowboys) but then I happened upon this pin:
- Hot dogs
- Chips & dip
- Corn on the cob
- Cupcakes & cookies
There are a bunch of other details in the works that I'll keep you updated on as they get finalized!
Did any moms out there use evites? Thoughts?
The invitations I love on etsy aren't available anymore.
Did you plan a big bash for your little one's first or keep in simple?
We're just having Grandma (his only other family in Charlotte) and our close friends...probably around 15-20.
Thoughts on making an Amazon Wishlist?
I've had several people ask what I wanted Clay to have and thought this might be easier.

It's perfectly acceptable to post for High Five for Friday a day late after taking 10 days off from blogging, right? Right.
So here we gooooooo:
1. My wonderful friend Liz is letting me make her gender reveal cupcakes at the end of this month. I am SO excited. Except for the whole keeping it a secret from Wednesday until Saturday thing. Clay really wants it to be a girl (or I just want a chance to buy little girl dresses).

I was a little upset about not having a little girl to dress up when I found out Clay was a little boy...then I realized I could still have lots of fun with a boy! One day I'll get around to doing a "favorite outfits" post; but for now here are a few staples from Clay's closet:
Linking up with Trendy Tot Tuesday! Take some time to go check out all the adorable kiddos!
Major mommy fail...
So Clay's 10 month pictures didn't get taken on the date (28th) because I forgot, and forgot again...and forgot again. I finally remembered to do them on the 2nd...right before bedtime. So we got some of this...
Clay's favorite toys are his drum, guitar, and piano. And he loves his stuffed animals!
Clay's diaper size is a size 3.
Clay's favorite foods are it depends on what day it is... but toast with jelly, eggs, and bananas are usually always winners.
Clay's clothing size is...oh, who knows? Haha. He can still fit in his 3 month onesies but we've got a few 12 month clothes in the rotation also. The other day I looked at his pants and they looked strangely like "manpris" so I checked the tag (his dad had dressed him) and he was sporting some 0-3 pants.
Clay's newest "tricks" are squealing, laughing hysterically at everything, trying to climb on everything, shaking his head "no."
Clay weight and height are: we didn't measure this month but I'm gonna guess 19ish pounds and 30ish inches.
A look back:
Linking up with Mommy Mondays!
