As you can see, Noah is quite proud of himself these days! He has been working all week on picking up Puffs - little baby finger food. He has learned how to pick up Puffs with his whole hand, like he's wearing mittens. He has also learned how to get the food to his mouth, chew a little bit, and swallow without gagging. It's been a big week! He really loves feeding himself. Noah is also starting to learn how to use a sippy cup, but it will take a while to master. He currently uses it as a teether.
Noah is crawling all over the house, and he can easily make it from one end of the house to the other. He is still doing the "army man" crawl, where he pulls himself along with this right elbow and his left hand. He also is quite good at collecting all the dog hair as he goes around the house. He thinks it's really funny when we lint-roll his clothes to get rid of the dog hair. He has some new favorite things - his piano keyboard, his baby hair brush and Laura's watch.
It's been a beautiful week here, so we have spent some fun time at the park. Noah still loves to swing, but now he swings and claps as he watches the big kids run around. It's pure joy! Here's a few pictures.
