M(om): Joash, you are 8 months old today!
J(oash): I know, Mom. Isn't it great?
M: It certainly is.Why don't you tell us what a typical day is like for you.
J: Well, I get up around 7 and have breakfast. Then I play while you do some cleaning. I am usually in my ExerSaucer and I really like watching the vacuum move back and forth. I have a morning nap at 9:30 and I usually sleep until 11. 11: 30 is lunch time and then Dad comes home and I watch you and Dad eat your lunch. 1:30 is my next nap and most of the time I sleep until 3:00. Then I have a snack and if it nice outside, we go for a walk or to the beach. I love being outside! My supper is at 6 and you and Dad eat either at 5 or 7 depending on the milking schedule. I play with Dad for a while after I eat and then my before bed snack at 8 and then off to bed.
J: I really like jumping. I jump in my ExerSaucer and I have even jump on the trampoline with Dad. I also like to play the piano and look at books. Since I can sit up all myself now, I like to play with different toys that you put around me. I really ones that make a noise when I shake them.
J: Well, we went to visit Dad in the barn. That was fun.
M: Any sign of teeth?
J: Not yet, but I think they are coming.
M: How about talking?
J: Well, since I love Dad so much, I say "da,da,da" all of the time. I like to tell you stories too, Mom.
M: Any other new feats?
M: Any thoughts on crawling?
J: I can see how it would be a good thing to do. Then I could get my toys that are out of reach. But, I am not ready for it yet.
M: Thanks, Joash. I hope you have a great day.
J: Thanks, Mom. Now can you get my book for me?
