Who needs toys when you have fingers?
Or cupboards?He was after the Miracle Gro. Seriously. It's been an issue! Do you see that smug little look? His chubby fingers were just about to grab that wondrous green bottle.
Or cupcakes? This was Jack's birthday cake. I totally ripped the idea from a cake book. I was grinning a huge goofy smile the whole time I was decorating them. They were a lot of fun to make.
Jack is jabbering. He says a lot of sounds, and sometimes it sounds like words or phrases. It's fun to carry on a conversation with him. Yesterday I got him to repeat DADA a whole bunch.
He has developed a fake cough, and loves to play a game with it, where I answer, "Bless you!"
He gives high fives and knuckle knocks.
He gives me kisses on command. Sloppy, drooly, mouth-wide-open kisses that are so sweet to my heart!
He is showing more interest in walking, and willingly takes supported steps.
He is now, finally, completely weaned but still won't drink much out of a sippy cup. (And we have tried. I've got at least 4 or 5 different kinds!) He just eats a ton.
He is working on the next 4-5 teeth. The count is at 11 or 12-ish right now.
He loves attention and loves to be tickled.
He goes to bed at 8 and wakes up LOUDLY around 6 each morning.
His own personal siren songs are cluttery objects like DVDs and CDs and the classic, toilet paper.
His crawl reminds me of a wind-up toy baby. His whole back end waggles back and forth as he moves.
And he is awake from his nap right now.......
