Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas, everyone! Today I had my first Christmas experience with mommy's side of the family, and tomorrow we fly to Chicago to see daddy's side. So far I think its FUN unwrapping presents, but I'm fairly uninterested in what's inside. In a few days, I'll post pictures of all the fun I've been having.

Merry Christmas, Jesus!

Kubik Look-alike Meter



Okay so here's the deal. Mommy learned about this website from her friend Stephanie and gave it a shot. According to this, I only look like daddy 4% more than mommy. Me and mommy both think this is a bit inaccurate. If you've been reading my blog for long and have seen my posts called "Identical" (in September) - you'll see that I look almost exactly like daddy! Oh well...it was fun anyway. What do you think??

Golden Globe Nominee


Mommy tells me the nominations for the Golden Globe awards are in, and I'm on the list! I've been nominated for Best Camera-Loving Baby in a Home Video award. If I win, I'll definitely have to thank God first...then mom, for taking all of these videos.

Today I proudly displayed a few of my new skills: clicking my tongue, shaking my head "no", and inexplicably "roaring" at mommy (daddy taught me this skill). Check out my amazing cuteness below!

9 Month Portraits







Okay, I know I'm 10 months old, but mommy just realized she never posted my portraits from 9 month session. So I told her to put these on...and we'll post my Christmas ones this weekend.

Trickster


Well I turned 10 months old yesterday, and it seems I'm learning a new trick every day! Here's a rundown of the new things I can do:

- Wave hello and goodbye consistently (and with both hands when I'm really excited!)
- Give kisses and hugs when asked
- Give "high five"
- Pull up on anything and everything
- Stand up from a sitting position, if I'm holding onto something (even if its a short something)
- "Walk" behind my Fisher Price walker
- Climb the stairs (with mommy hovering over me like a shadow)

Of course, I still say "dada" with every other breath I take and in response to any question I am asked, even if it has nothing to do with dada.

Mommy and daddy think I'm growing up WAY too quickly. Good thing I'm such a peanut....at least I still LOOK like a baby!

So Fresh and So Clean


My new thing when I'm feeling tired or frustrated is to rub my face all over with my hands. Unfortunately, when this happens at mealtime, I tend to get my food all in my hair. This picture was taken about 1 hour after mommy had given me a bath and my hair was all fresh and clean...until I got bananas and apricots in it!

I'm always keeping mommy on her toes!

Kissing Fool


In the last couple days, I've really perfected the art of kissing on request. Someone just has to say "Give Mommy/Daddy a kissie" and I lean in for a big open mouthed kiss. Its too cute. My secret was practicing on the refrigerator...although noone told me to kiss it, I certainly find something about that fridge to be totally appealing. Check out the video below to see me in action!
