Ten Months

Janey is ten months old today...which is just about one of the best ages ever if you like squishy, silly, happy, loving, cuddly, funny babies.
And also if you like to never sit down.
We have started building barricades in rooms.

On a different note,
tonight is a full moon.
My baby nephew or niece is going to be born tonight maybe, just maybe.
Full moons can make that happen sometimes you know.

The moon is called the Strawberry Moon this month and doesn't that sound delicious.
Do you know that every full moon has a name?
I made my kids memorize all of them because I think it's so fun.
It gives every month it's own little special signature.

Here are the Native American full moon names:

January: Wolf Moon
February: Snow Moon
March: Worm Moon
April: Pink Moon
May: Flower Moon
June: Strawberry Moon
July: Thunder Moon
August: Green Corn Moon
September: Harvest Moon
October: Hunter's Moon
November: Frost Moon
December: Long Night's Moon


  1. So fascinating Sarah, I had no idea about Native American full moon names! Janey is getting so big, I see a little of you and you're right, she looks a lot like Patrick, how sweet!

  2. I had no idea every full moon had a name! Cool! I'm showing this to my kids. :) Your little Janey is adorable!!

  3. I've never heard the full moon names before, my kiddos will be thrilled to learn something new!

  4. I LOVE 10 month olds!!! My baby is almost 18 months now and is a little terror:))) Good thing they're so darn cute:)

  5. We call our babies "Wheels on the Bus" at that stage. They just go, go, go. Look how proud of herself she is! So stinkin' cute!

  6. Sweet little girl!!!! She is so cute!!

  7. I have heard of Harvest Moon, but I didn't realize every moon has a name. Maybe we will take the memorization challenge!!

    I love how you love your kids!! It is so refreshing to see a mom who enjoys being a mom!

  8. Our new grandson was just born on 21st - a Strawberry Moon how lovely! I love the fact the moons all have individual names.

  9. I love learning new things! I've never heard of these! Thanks for sharing--excited about teaching the boys!

  10. We saw the strawberry moon rise over Lake Erie last night. It was the most amazing sight! We tried to capture a photo, but we were driving home late at night and I was too tired to stop. The reflection on the water was beautiful and it was going in and out of the clouds.

  11. Janey is so cute standing there smiling! Can't believe it's been 10 months.

    The preschool that I teach at uses The Long Night Moon by Cynthia Rylant to teach the children about the moon names.

  12. I never knew this - thanks Sarah! Teaching me, as always. xo
    *** Janey is, of course, adorbs. She can go to prom with one (or both!) of my 7-mo-old-twin-boys

  13. I didn't know about the moon names, either. Cool!
    I also completely agree with you- 10 months is THE BEST!! I feel most "in love" with my babies at the 10-24 months stage. They are so much fun to watch!

  14. I just have to say - Janey is so adorable! Love that smile. Especially when she is on your daughter's hip. What beautiful girls you have...

  15. Happy Summer, Sarah!! She is so sweet. Looks like you are having a busy but wonderful summer...yay! :)
