Horrifying New Developments

21 Oct

The G.I. crawl – Did you know that the Army hires babies to teach this technique to new recruits?

I don’t know why, but October has been a month for milestones. David was getting pretty good at rolling around, but once he realized he could roll toward things he wanted, it was as if a switch were flipped in his little brain. Here are some of my notes:

Oct. 7: Started sitting himself up

Oct. 10: Bottom incisors came in

Oct. 14: Started G.I. crawling toward objects (and I got laid off. Now I can watch my crawler full-time…)

Oct. 20: Real crawling

And on Oct. 24 he will be eight months old(!!!). He hasn’t started taking things with him but it will be cute when that happens. I loved when Dominic started carrying books and toys in his mouth. Here are some pictures:

Here he’s bundled up to go to the mailbox and walk around the neighborhood. This is fall bundling. Winter bundling will be less comical.

Fat lips

Thin lips

He is very huggable, if you were wondering. And he loves kisses!

He can do 55 push-ups in one minute.

His head is not shaped like that. That is his hair!

His hair is hard to see but he is really getting a lot more of it lately.

Time to move the basket of cat toys. Also time to put a baby gate at the top of the basement stairs.

He almost never gets diaper changes in the living room but if we put the changing pad and wipes away, he won’t be a newborn anymore.

The End.

He Is Taking Over My Blog And My House

1 Oct

Here are some pictures from the last month or two that haven’t made it onto the blog because they were not related to our trip or the piano or the crib pads. To start us off, here is Dave relaxing in the bath with his neurotic lifeguard nearby. If you come visit, be sure not to let Tom in the room when you shower because he is super annoying.

Here are his legs after his six-month shots.

I’m fine, really.

I had him try on this dinosaur costume to see if there was any chance it would fit on Halloween. Nope!

The pack ‘n’ play is back out! Seeing him play in it reminds me so much of baby Robert.

How the mighty have fallen.

On a day with nice weather I opened the back door in our dining room and realized the neighbor’s dog has just enough space to stick his whole head between the wall and the fence. Tom was sure surprised to see a big dog head practically touching the back door. By the time I got the camera the dog had gone into its house. But Tom’s fur was still puffy!

I swear this big baby dwarfs my husband.

But Ida dwarfs him. If p then q.

Here is one of his new bow ties from OhSweetHome. You can see Davy was in a very playful mood:

This one reminds me of Brain, I think. (Try to take over the world)

Here he is ready to try green beans for the first time. I added butter and garlic and they were not great but he seemed to like them, just like his dad. Although his dad tasted these ones and thought they were terrible.

You can watch his dignified reaction:
