You've reached double digits.
You're getting bigger, and heavier I'm afraid. I still haven't located that scale, but according to my aching back you've gained a pound or so in the last month. All muscle, I'm sure.
You've been crawling at high speeds pretty much everywhere in the house. You have free reign downstairs when gates and doors are closed accordingly and you go where you wish.
While crawling is still easier, you've started walking. It started out as a few steps every few days and has pretty much turned into quite a few steps many times a day. It is so fun to watch you concentrate so hard on your steps.. and so not fun when you bonk your head when you fall down.
Communication has really developed between us recently. I know what you want and you know what I'm saying sometimes. It is just so neat. You love to shake your head no, although you really don't know what it means.. except that we're going to "argue" with you and laugh. You have started shrugging your shoulders lately, too.
You are very generous with kisses. Sometimes though, kisses include teeth.
Some of your favorite things to do are:
-Open and close the gates.
-Climb the stairs.
-Lick the toilet, floor, and other disgusting things.
-Being "scared" by mom or dad.. but no one else, because, well, that's scary.
-Eating popcorn, cheerios, yogurt, apples, tomatoes, cheese...
