Brady Nine Months

Brady- Our little Dracula is going away! You finally have cut your two front teeth. Leave it up to our little Jelly to do everything differently than others! You figured out how to crawl forward. At first you would pull yourself with your arms and then kick your little back feet like you were swimming, it was so much work. We tried to help you by showing you your hands and knees but you wanted no part of that. At the end of this month you finally figured out how to army crawl, you get around much quicker now. You also love your little V-tech bike and Winnie the Pooh bus-bike. We push you around our house on the hardwood floors and you sit their so proud. Towards the end of this month you figured out how to make yourself go back wards on the bikes as well. You love to go backwards kid! You also pulled your self to a standing position on your caterpillar in your pack and play the other morning! You have only done that once, and my, you sure were proud of yourself you stood their screaming and smiling for five minutes! I have a feeling you will go straight from Army crawling to walking, forget this crawling stuff that is for babies! You are starting to become more independent in your eating you still love cheerio’s and puffs but you also eat avocado, noodles, and banana! All by yourself! Such a big boy! We love you little man!

Brady Eight Months

Brady- Wow how time flies! My little Jelly bean is getting so big! You look like Dracula with you two front fangs hanging out. It is pretty cute! You may be the only Dracula that Mommy has never been scared of! You are sitting up so well now and you still love to roll and jump in your jump-aroo. You still haven’t mastered crawling but you love to tummy surf. You eat cheerio’s pretty well now. I might even venture to say that you think you are pretty cool putting stuff in your own mouth. You still love to hear yourself talk and have also started a new screaming thing. You love to scream as loud as you can and then wait for your voice to come back to you. Our house echoes a lot it must be all of the hardwood floors. You started banging two objects together now. You think it is really fun to make a bunch of noise. Your favorite store is Costco, you stair up at the ceiling and all the crazy warehouse lights. You are pushing through your last bottom front tooth, you finally have a complete set down there. Towards the end of this month you have started trying to move forward crawling but only go backwards. It is quite funny to watch. You don’t think it is too funny though as your object of attention gets farther away from you. I know you will figure it out though. Love you Jelly Bean!
