Noah Shenanigans

Jeff and I finally had a nice work free weekend together.  Can I just say how much easier it is to take care of your child when you do it with someone else?  I really have to give credit to single mothers because that is hard work!

Noah's been working hard on his walking this weekend.  Within forty-eight hours Noah when from just standing holding onto furniture to moving all over the living room! We hold his hands and walk with him all over the house and he just loves it so much.  We're really thinking he's going to be walking on his own very soon. Of course, this new mobility has kept up on our toes.  He opens all drawers and cabinets and any chance he gets he's all over the fridge.  Gotta explore new places I suppose.

On another note, Noah has also learned his first super bad habit.  He's always been such an amazing eater that this is really throwing us for a loop.  He starts eating no problem, and them, about half way through his food, you'll put a spoonful on something in his mouth and he literally coughs it up.  At first we though he had something in his mouth he didn't like, but now he just keeps doing it over and over and it gets all over everything!  It's done very purposeful. Our clothes are completely covered with spit up food, the floor around us; it's a giant mess.  We're still trying to figure out how we're going to fix this.  It's not like you can put a nine month old in time out... Any ideas?

Overall, it was a great weekend.  We had a lot of fun playing with Noah, listening to all his new chatter and watching him learn to walk right before our eyes. I especially loved seeing Noah trying to stand.  He does it so slowly.  First he lets go of one hand, then the other... and then really fast he'll lunge over to me not realizing he should move his legs to get closer.  So hilarious.  Now if we could only get him to move his legs after standing on them... soon we will have a walker!
