9 Months Old - Mr. Meatball

Monday, August 10, 2009

It's been another busy month for Timmy. His 8th tooth has appeared, we've had loads of daytrips, and he is more active than ever. He's standing up wherever he can grab hold of something and in the last few days has even started to cruise a bit. He loves to play Pat-a-Cake and Peek-a-Boo. Perhaps the biggest change has been that he's begun to use his voice again. He's a '"da-da" boy which I suppose is appropriate since he really is a daddy's boy. (Katie's first word was "ma".) I do get the occasional "ma" from Tim, but usually only in the midst of a cry. But he's most talkative during meals. He likes to eat and he likes to eat a lot. And he doesn't want babyfood; he wants big chunks of meat....chicken fingers, meatballs, hotdogs... He actually yells at us when we don't get it fast enough. The kids spent the day (and dinner) with my sister this week and when she brought him home she laughed about how much he had to say during dinnertime. I laughed and impersonated his "eh, Eh, EHHHH?" She told me, "oh yea, exactly, he was fine as soon as I gave him some meatballs though."

He is a little monkey and loves to try to shimmy up his gate bars.
The matching smile and ears don't hurt the resemblance either.I've mentioned before that Katie is quite sure of her future and plans to be a doctor. I think that Timmy has decided on dentistry.
We've had a few visits to Ocean City and Clementon Lake Park this past month. Timothy still loves being out and about.
And he has really developed a fondness for splashing in the water.
His Beavis and Butthead laugh has gotten more pronounced since he's more active and loves to laugh at us when he knows he's doing something he shouldn't be doing, particularly taking off down the upstairs hallway as soon as a door opens and going at full speed for the cat water and the dog food/water.
But most of the time he's just charming. He loves to try to make us smile and laugh back at him when he's being silly.
And I'm sure he can't wait for football season to really get underway since he loves playing catch with his sister.
He's been practicing his hollering and clapping this whole past month so he should fit right in with daddy.

I am sure Russ will be glad to see the broncos bib, esp now that the stupid eagles signed a dog killer. (had to get that out of the way!)

WOW! He's becoming a big boy! It won't be long before he's a toddler! CRAZY!

How was Vegas? We need to catch up!
