9 + 10 + 11 month favorites

three months included here and as I look back at nine months it seems like forever ago! 
but since tanner hit that age and has been nonstop mobile, we've used a lot of the same items and not much has changed in this department.

life these last couple months have been a whole lotta food, sleep, playing, + me running around.

george hats //  this one has been a more recent item for us as summer has approached. I feel like I'm constantly putting a hat on tanner to protect his little head from the sun. because sunscreen IN THE HAIR is the absolute worst. it's also so cute on him that I wish would've been having him wear one forever ago! and the sun hat is just perrrfect for pool days!

honest night time diapers // we used these with both our babies and they are THE BEST. once they reach the age where middle of the night diaper changes were out & in tanner's case tummy sleeping started causing some leaking. honest dipes for the win!

contigo water bottle // what harper has, tanner wants. siblings!! so the boy version of the contigo kids water bottle was added to my target shopping list. I've loved the stainless steel for keeping the water colder longer. though it is heavier and he no longer gets to have it in his highchair cause when he throws that down-- I fear for my toes every time.

honest baby multi vitamin // tanner gets one packet of this every morning in his yogurt and loves it!

baby finger toothbrush + gel // boy has EIGHT teeth. and eats LOTS of food. so those chompers need some cleaning! I used to use a baby washcloth to wipe them, but he started biting my finger, so this gives a little more protection on my part haha!

snack cups // so many snack cups out there! we fill them with cheerios, puffs, goldfish, ect. I love these OXO ones cause they come with a lid for when they're stored in the diaper bag. helps save on some of the crumby mess!

booth bath mat // this thing has a hook to HANG over the shower head so it can hang and dry out after bath. finally someone came up with this!!

Photo (or two) Every Hour | Father's Day 2017

it was a rough night with a teething tanner. my intent was to bring brandon his coffee before he got up, but instead he did it for me. on FATHER'S DAY.
man have I got a good one!
wakey wakey tanner boy!
sweetest little church girl holding her daddy's hand.
these good looking hjelseth boys!
... & a family photo attempt
at church they had maple donuts with bacon for all the dad's. harper tried a bite of brandon's and immediately said... "this is not good." 
so funny! 
so we made our way to the donut shop :)
... & so we drive :)
to nana + papa's house for a father's day bbq + some swim time
her second "pink ice cream cone" of the afternoon :)
how special it is to see brandon this father's day with his son.
such a precious relationship
literally 10 seconds in the car and he was OUT!
night night babies
then it was a little clean up around the house, but to the bonus room to lounge on the couch, and then we rolled into bed just shortly after 10.

happy father's day, Brandon!
thankful for all you are and all you do for us.

Tanner Ross || 11 months

my baby.
how, oh how can it be!?
you're E L E V E N months old today and I honest to goodness don't know how we've even gotten here. 
boy you just bring so, so much joy to us all. 
such a happy camper, with a calm spirit. 
a mama's boy at it's finest + you are ever so dear to me.
sensitive, yet determined.
I dream about you and what your future holds so often. it's such a bright one ahead for you and I pray you will always hold your mama close to your heart.
sweet boy, it brings tears to my eyes as we're getting closer to closing in on your first year of life. it's been a year of challenges and you've taught me so much about myself. made me stronger. made me more patient + compassionate. 
this past year you've molded me into who I am.
though it is so emotional and breaks my heart a little seeing you get so stinking big, it also brings me the biggest joy and I couldn't be more excited to continue to watch you as you grow more and more into yourself.
thank you my sweet tanner boy.
mama loves you!!!
and not knowing it was possible to love you any more than I already did--- this month you've been soooo solid with your sleep and we've had daysss of you sleeping all through the night :) mama loves you baby, now keep it up!! ;)
