|What? I may not crawl, but I strike a cute pose...|
This past month we celebrated his first Halloween, where he dressed as a chicken and attended a fun Halloween party with plenty of other adorably-garbed baby friends.
|Party fowl--a chicken, a penguin, and a duck|
|Ready to "trick or treat"|
|Notice dog, Peach, lurking beneath the high chair...the only reason my kitchen floor is ever "clean."|
We're still working on waving, he can do it and will on occasion, but not consistently yet. He claps all the time--unprompted, to get our attention, or when he's excited. His smile melts my heart, and he smiles all the time...he has a sweet dimple and adorable teeth! The top 4 teeth are all in the process of coming in and he has 3 teeth on the bottom.
|SC State Fair-wonderment at its best|
His favorite toys are anything that he can shake or bang together to make noise--blocks, rattles, balls, anything. He also loves to grab the entire box/bin/basket of toys that are nearby and dump it--and then play with the box. Looks to be a cheap Christmas around our parts--Jones will be content with cardboard boxes :)
|Jones channeling his old man persona--the boy loves a hat (and so does momma)|
Our sweet boy is growing so fast--pulling up on furniture and wanting to stand (with our assistance) all the time! He is babbling constantly now, and though he hasn't said it directly to him yet, he says "DaDa" pretty often.
And, just to embarrass him someday, I leave you with this picture of his "rooster hair" that he woke up with one day this week.
|Look closely--there's a nice spike at the crown :)|
