Happy 9-month birthday!

JJ turned 9-months old today. His 8th month saw a bunch of milestones. He has two teeth (one on top, one on bottom) and luckily they line up! He has been eating scraps of bread and had his first Cheerios yesterday. He is crawling up every person and object he can find that will allow him to stand. He has progressed from saying "dah-dah-dah-dah" to "mah-mah-mah-mah". He can climb stairs (under close observation). And he learned the multiplication table. OK, that last one is not true, but it was a big month nonetheless. Let's go to the videotape!

1) JJ does this new thing during mealtimes when he's in a really good mood.

2) JJ likes to tell us about his dining experience after each meal. You can see he keeps his face pretty tidy during dinner.

3) JJ likes to chase the cats around from time to time, particularly Kater. You can see his crawlspeed has really improved.

4) JJ likes to dance his various musical toys. He usually just hits the first couple notes and then chills out. His dancing usually consists of head-bopping, hand-waving, stomach-convulsing, or a combination thereof. Here we see demonstrations of all three techniques.

  1. Happy 9 month Bday, JJ! Love the videos. Grandpa and I didn't know you were crawling on all fours or that you had cut your first two teeth. We are very proud. Be sure to warm mom and dad about putting their fingers in your mouth now. Let them know that you are not responsible for your actions if they do! :)
