These are a few of his favorite things

*Opening and closing anything. Doors. The gate to the stairs. Drawers.

*Giving great hugs while saying "ahhhhhhhhhh". So sweet & funny!

*Eating. Especially Mac & Cheese & bananas. (I don't think this one will ever leave his list!) By the way, in case you were wondering what the proper way to eat a tortilla is, here you go:

*Sneaking into the bathroom and unrolling the toilet paper, then tearing it up to pieces.

*Sneaking into the pantry and pulling down anything he can reach. We perpetually have tea cans, plastic spoons and formula cans on the floor.

*Climbing up the stairs the second the gate is off.

*"Helping" me put away clothes. This usually means taking things out of drawers and messing up my neatly organized piles of clothes. He also likes to help unload the dishwasher. Spoons all over the place!

*Babbling non-stop.

*Making "vroom" sounds while playing with his car or plane toys.

*Jumping up and down in his crib when he wakes up from his nap and turns on his aquarium thing.

*Trying to bite my leg. Specifically my knee. Did anyone else's babies ever try to do this?

*Being with people. He loves the nursery at church. All of the nursery helpers always comment on how happy and fun he is :)

*Dancing. The second music comes on- he starts bouncing and puts one arm in the air and starts waving it.

*Clapping with both hands open. This is new as of the past two days. He used to clap with one hand closed in a fist. Somehow, he finally figured it out this week.

*Starting to realized that he can stand on his own. He gets a little nervous and then bends his knees and goes back to crawling. I'm fine with that :) He can take his time getting to walking.

*Chasing his daddy around the house. They love playing together.

We are having so much fun with him. David says, "he is rocking life right now". He is super happy all the time and keeps us entertained. He is getting big- we love his chubby cheeks. He got his 3rd tooth a few weeks back and is working on #4 & #5.
I love this picture of him! It was taken by the lovely Jenetta at our fall party (a post soon to come!)
