Today is Claire's 10th month birthday. She weighs in at a whopping 15 and a half pounds and is 27.5 inches tall.
Josh spent all day in the backyard cleaning up the mounds of dog poop and pulling weeds. Then he planted a tree and a few bushes. It may sound like an easy time, but digging a hole for that tree in the concrete-like dirt was no picnic. 7 bottles of water, one youth helper and 6 hours later, the tree was in the ground and he even planted a little (and I do mean little) flower garden around the base of it.
We are hoping to get a sprinkler system, sod and a cement patio put in by the end of this month. I can't wait to have a yard so Claire can play in the grass back there instead of in the community green belt.
My sweet pea flowers are finally blooming. I don't know why they are so far behind my sugar snap peas.
It was a very productive day in the backyard and a day of celebration for Claire's 10 months with us. How fast the time is going by!
