eight & nine

Jack is nine months old now, but here is the 8-month picture too:He is busy army-crawling everywhere. He can bustle along our floors very quickly, and doesn't let much slow him down. Yesterday, he left his jeans behind on the living room rug! When he's hungry, he finds me and scratches at my feet and ankles until I pick him up and feed him.

He's extra fussy right now. I think the crankiness may be due to teething and also readiness to hit a new milestone. Last night he pulled himself to standing by Owen's bed. His mind tells him he's a big boy that can stand up and play by the ottoman, but his coordination and balance haven't caught onto that yet.

Guess he gives new meaning to the phrase "ankle-biting batallion" if he scratches your ankles for attention:). Such a cutie. . and you'll be planning a 1yr b-day party before you know it !!!! Jan

Oh, Joyce, this description of Jack makes me want to grab and hold him. He's just too cute and funny all together. How would you know Jack was hungry if he didn't let you know? Love, Grandma Ruby
