You are starting to get into everything now! You're army crawling and scooting your way to every exposed wire and outlet in the house the moment I put you down to play on the floor. Something tells me you are going to be a bit more challenging than your brother was at this age, when it comes to keeping you out of trouble.
You're really enjoying your new solid foods. I was planning on just doing baby led weaning with you, but I typically give you some finger foods in addition to purees at each meal instead. You're getting quite proficient in getting little pieces of fruits and veggies into your mouth. Your favorite purees are pears and ...well, really anything other than apple. Yogurt is a big hit too. And as far as "real" food goes, you lose your mind around broccoli and bananas. Peas, rice, peaches and watermelon are all favorites too.
The jumperoo is getting more jumping action lately and you've been doing this funny thing where you lift one or both arms in the air as you jump. I tried to get pictures, but you're just a wild blur.
You continue to watch my hands as I sign the names of animals, foods and objects. I think you created your own sign for MORE, even though I've been doing the standard ASL version. You managed to get your pointer finger up and I swear you were trying to sign FAN the other day. You move your hands a lot and it looks like you're trying to communicate something to me, but I'm not sure what just yet. We'll keep practicing.
Nate is still your favorite person and pretty much everything he does, including spitting, is hilarious to you. You two have been able to play more together and it's pretty much the best thing ever. I love you both so much that I can hardly stand it. Daddy and I created some pretty awesome humans (through magic, obviously).
I love you more than tongue can tell.
~Mama (oh and you've been babbling Mamamama too. I hope one day soon you'll figure out that that is my name!)
