To celebrate being nine months old today, Joseph learned to clap. Yay!
Samuel, reading "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" to Joseph in a cowboy voice: (after the Saturday binge) "Gosh dangit! Did I eat all that food?" (when he wasn't a little caterpillar anymore) "He was the fattest caterpillar you ever did see!"
At almost 9 months old, baby has gotten VERY good at climbing the stairs. We generally allow it (with a spotter) but he's SO fast that sometimes he's a good way up by the time I sprint over there! #mamaneedsadrink
Joseph's favorite book is Sandra Boynton's "Moo, Baa, La La La". We read it aaaaaallll the time. Went to the State Fair yesterday, pointed to an ACTUAL cow, and said, "The cow says, "Moo!" Blew his mind.
Sitting here listening to Pandora and web-surfing while Samuel sweeps the floor and washes dishes: BWAHAHAHAHAHA! This is why you have kids: free slave labor! Oh, relax, as soon as the baby quits nursing and wakes up, I might consider accomplishing something, too.
How am I supposed to get anything done when I have this baby to tickle?
