9 Months!

As of yesterday, we are nine months old! We thought we would share all of the neat things we can do now that we are three quarters of a year old.

We both:

  • Love blueberries! They are our favorite foods by far
  • Think Mom's earrings are the coolest toys in the world
  • Love jumping around in our exersaucer and jumperoo
  • Are great sitters and are starting to be able to get from sitting to laying on our tummies without causing bodily harm
  • Have no interest in feeding ourselves
  • Love our nuks
  • Think it's funny to be upside down
  • Love tubby day! We've discovered splashing and think it is so much fun!

Here's what Aidan is up to. He:
  • Is the best at getting up on his knees, but hasn't found something he wants badly enough to move forward yet
  • Loves things with lights, especially the light up key toy
  • Is great at using a sippy cup!
  • Loves to play fetch. He'll throw anything as long as he gets to watch someone go pick it up!
  • Could spend all day standing up against something
  • Makes lots of grunting noises where he starts and stops sounds
  • Says "More" very consistently while eating
  • Is not tickilish at all!
  • Makes you work to get a smile if you want one, but if you aren't trying to get one he'll laugh at the oddest things 
  • Likes to play "fold the baby in half" where you put his toes in his mouth for him
  • Loves to lean forward to make faces at Dad, especially while he's in his pack and play

Here's what Patrick is up to. He:
  • Is so ticklish! His neck, his shoulders, his tummy, his feet... you name it - he's ticklish there!
  • Loves his new found freedom now that he is army man crawling
  • Will crawl anywhere to get at electronics
  • Loves to laugh
  • Enjoys any toy that can spin, like his rattles and the triangle. Okay, he enjoys anything that has to do with spinning. Remember the video of him spinning himself?
  • Loves to snuggle
  • Hates bibs
  • Thinks sippy cups are for wussies
  • Shakes his head "no" for no reason at all
  • Gets a huge grin on his face when someone he knows walks into the room
  • Gives the best hugs and kisses (even if you lose a large chunk of hair in the process)

We're growing up so fast and man are we cute!

Love, Aidan and Patrick
