Big milestones.

My son is nine months old, today. He said his first word yesterday. It was "Daddy," if you were curious. Again, here he is with a stuffed monkey for size comparison, at four days:


And here's the same monkey with him at nine months.


And here's another, for good measure.


He is just an amazing little guy, and cracks me up on a regular basis.

  1. Absolutely. He's more than quadrupled his birth weight, and already eating us out of house and home in baby food. :D

  2. You must be breast feeding him,
    with a bite of 2 of steak and potatoes!

    He has incredible eyes..dark blue--can't tell.

  3. I am breast feeding him. And don't joke about the steak and potatoes--his favorite meal is beef & gravy with sweet potatoes and corn.

  4. And yeah, his eyes are pretty blue. Kind of a bright blue with a dark blue ring around the edge.

  5. You know, now that I look back at this post, I'm just a touch surprised that "Daddy" was his first word. I sort of expected a different word...

  6. Like what? "Fuck you?" He gives one of my very good (but very far left) friends a look that says that all the time. :D
