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.

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.

    I can definitely tell his hair has been growing a lot! He looks like Nick in the pic above the “he can do 55 push ups in one minute” pic.
