Sam is nine months old (as of yesterday!), and the past month and a half have been a blast. Sometime in there he's shifted from interacting with us to communicating with us. We have exchanges of blowing raspberries at each other. He'll shake his head back and forth, and get very excited if we do that back at him. He's started high-fiving and waving (next up: the terrorist fist jab), and is starting to understand when
to wave. All these exchanges make him very happy.
It's all very cool, because he's not talking, but it seems like these are all ways of us telling each other, "Hello! I am here! You are here! I love you!"
Also, he is properly crawling, although he's still faster at the inchworm method.
He is also still crazy kicking all the time. Here's the most recent video of him kicking, behind the cut:( kicky Sam! )
Seriously, he is crazy active, as can be seen in all these videos
. I guess it's no surprise, as he was always a very wriggly fetus. Maybe, uh, I should cut back on the caffeine?
Right! Life is good! I know I keep saying this, but 9 months is a very fun age.
