Eaten posts...

So I've tried to post this twice and have lost it twice too. I'm going to try to recreate, but who knows.

We've taken A outside a lot in the past few weeks. Most of the time, he just sits in the grass and fusses, but will eventually come around and have a blast. M took some pictures of A and I raking leaves the other day.

Today we had lunch in a local park. We all sat on the "Neat Sheet" and A crawled around while we ate.

I completely forget what else I said in the other posts...

As we approach the 9 month mark, what can A do? (I was looking in my own baby book, and all these milestones were listed--they aren't, however, in his book!)

  • Make sounds that include: dah, ah-dah, k (we think this means cat or kitty), bah.
  • Army crawl
  • Push himself up to sitting, often in his crib
  • Gets distressed when Mommy leaves the room
  • Doesn't like "strangers"
  • Can self feed
  • Waves hi
As for foods, I don't think there's anything he doesn't like. The other day, I tried to make myself some steak on the George Foreman grill. It was gross, but I figured rather than throw it away, I'd put it in the food processor and give it to A. M mixed it with some squash and A LOVED it.

Last night, we left A with a babysitter again. He cried when we left, but was good for the rest of the night. YAY! I think his napping right before she got there helped a lot--I was also happy that he woke up again right before we left. I was nervous that if he woke up and we weren't there, he would think we left him.

Tonight, we have plans with friends and Grandpa will be watching A. Hopefully that will go well too!!
