G(ideon): I am doing great mom. Though I have a bit of a runny nose, but I still am pretty happy.
M: What is new this month?
G: Well, I keep trying new foods and I like them quite a lot. I wasn't so sure about chicken the first time around, but when you put some sweet potatoes with it, then it was really good. I like purees and cereal the best. Some days I like bread an other things with more texture and other days not so much.
G: I am very happy dragging myself around the house. I have been able to explore so many interesting places. My favorite is under the desk. There are so many pretty lights and cords down there. Why don't you let me stay, mom?
G: I like my cow and anything that makes a crinkly noise. I also like things that make sounds and light up. And I really like the red dome top of the stacking cup tower. It is so nice to chew on.
G: I am working on sitting and crawling on my hands and knees. And I like that you caught on to my signal. When I rub my head and ears, I am tired and just need to go to bed.
M: It is fun learning more about you every day, Gideon. You are a joy to have. Love you, buddy!
