It's hard to believe our little [big] Adrian has been out in the world for as long as he stayed safe and snug in my belly. Each day as I look at him, I see a little boy more than I see a little baby. It's so fun to see him learning and exploring. Oooh, exploring, he's into everything! And he wants to follow me everywhere. I love it!
We have been teaching him a few signs: all done, more, eat, milk, and ni'night. He understands all of them except 'more.' Or, maybe he understands more, I'm not sure, we haven't been using that one for very long. Well, I shouldn't say that, I think he learned 'milk' in two days, for some reason it humors me that he learned that particular sign so quickly. He has signed 'all done' once or twice on his own, it's awesome to see him catch on!
At about 8 months, Adrian learned to pull himself standing, now he's starting to walk along furniture. Today, he actually reached overhead and pulled something off the table; there's not much that he can't get to!
I have tried a few times in the past few days to get a decent picture of him but he's been a little under the weather (I thought we were past that season) and it's supposed to rain tomorrow. Bummer dude.
