On the Move

 Though not quite crawling, John is on the go. He does a military-type scoot, where he pulls himself with his arms. One of the baby gates (at the top of the stairs going down) is up. He is one determined little guy. And he's happy, too.

Play Time

Every time the camera comes out, John smiles, but then this red light flashes (whether or not you are using the flash) and he regresses to the "stunned baby" look. Usually, he is very smiley. He also is quite active, so getting a non-blurry shot is tough. He's scooting and rolling around right now. He's not interested in eating solid food, and honestly, I'm not really interested in the mess that goes along with baby food. He has one tooth, and judging from the drool and chubby cheeks, I would guess that he's going to sprout some more teeth pretty soon.

Elizabeth and Helen are - for the most part - being good helpers. We read quite a bit. They are really into painting right now. And they have really great imaginations. Luckily, they are at the age where they spend many hours together just playing out some imaginary story. Sometimes, it's Rapunzel or Sleeping Beauty; other times, it's "Mouse and Kid" or some concoction like that.
