Chase's Year in Review
Here were the stats for our little guy:
Chase David Trimble
June 5th at 4:24 p.m.
Height...21 inches long
Since then, he's gone to 18 lbs and 26 inches long. His 1st birthday is only a few months away! Where does the precious time go??? He's crawling now...has been for a few months. He's almost walking. He has seven teeth...has had them for a few months.
From the moment he was born, Chase has been so sweet and lovable. I don't know what I expected with a third baby, but I didn't expect to be blown away yet again by how amazing it is to have a new baby in our home or the capability for him to completely capture my heart from the beginning. I realized that babies will do that, no matter how many kids you have...they are that amazing and wonderful. It was an easy adjustment, espeically considering how many people told me three kids was by far the hardest adjustment. I've found that I'm a much less stressed mom with him and I'm enjoying my little boy to the max. I imagined him looking like Jaxon which he does...a whole lot...except for his blue eyes.
Nicknames: Ace, Chaser, Chasey, Buster, Mister
I think I used nicknames far more than his name for the first few months of his life.
I love how much he loves his Daddy (just look at the family picture at the top of our blog....from about 2 months on, anytime Dad spoke or walked by he couldn't take his eyes off of him. I would be pulling out all the silly voices and off tune songs to try to get him to smile, but Jeff just has to walk by and he's all smiles.) Chase loves his big brother and sister. I love watching how much they loved him from the moment we got home and how much fun they have helping with him and watching him learn new things. They have been so good with him....amazing how quick he became a part of our family and we can't remember what life was like without him. He also holds a special place for our dog Toby. He brings a smile to Chase's face almost as quick as his Daddy does. Toby is extremely protective of him and will come get me when he wakes up from a nap.
I love everything about him being a 10 month old...I love his laugh, I love the new words he's starting to say, I love the way he stares at me with his adoring eyes, and I love the way he will go and play, then will crawl back to me almost for reassurance and then will go play some more. I love that he sees our family as his whole world.
Here are more than a few of my favorite pictures of him over the last nine months:
We love our little Chaser!!! Welcome to our family!!
