10 months old and counting...

Sheesh... where does the time go?

We officially have a crawler now. He's been getting pretty good at it the last couple of weeks. He's had to learn quickly in order to avoid the enthusiastic licks of Grandma and Grandpa's new puppy.

He has two little chompers now - and he delights in demonstrating their use on unsuspecting fingers.

He's got the "bye-bye" thing down pat. It's adorable to watch him wave, first with his whole arm, then with his hands. He knows how to sign "want" - especially where food is involved. If you're eating something he wants (which is like, always), he'll pretend to chew and wait til you give him something. But you gotta be quick, or the "want" sign comes right out, along with the "um, um, um!"

So far his sign language vocabulary includes: dada, mama, papa, grandma, sleep, want, more, play, run, eat, apple, pancake, bath and a few others I'm forgetting.

We head back up to Children's Hospital in a couple of weeks - hopefully we'll get a definitive answer on surgery soon.

Our little miracle is doing great - we are blessed. Drop us a line and catch us up on how your families are doing :o)
