Lets see, what else is new? Well Brody's first tooth popped through a few weeks ago, and along with it he was sick for the first time in his life. Because of being sick, I wasn't really sure if he was cranky because of the tooth or from the not feeling so well. Luckily he didn't get too sick. We just put a humidifier in his room and waited it out. We knew the doctor wouldn't be able to do anything more than what we did, so we didn't bother going to him. Tooth number 2 popped up this week, and Brody seems to be handling that fairly well. He has been a little cranky here and there, but not bad at all. Normally he sleeps all through the night, but he woke up and stayed up for a couple hours one night. Other than that, all went well.
Brody can now pull himself into a sitting position all by himself. One day he was lying on his tummy and the next thing I knew, he was sitting up. He did it again without me watching that day, but I finally caught him in the act. He gets on his side and then pushes himself up. Trevor finally witnessed him doing it today. It takes a lot of effort, but he can do it!
Another milestone has been standing up. He will pull himself up with our help, but now Brody stands up whenever anything is in his way. He will just climb right over the top of us. I am just waiting for the day when he falls backwards and smacks his head on the floor. That won't be so fun.
Cheesy grins are the best new thing. Anytime we get out the camera this scrunched little face all of a sudden appears. It cracks us up everytime. It is so stinking funny. The nose scrunches, the eyes squint, and you can even see the tooth.
Lastly, we will tell Brody shake your head and then we do it, and pretty soon he starts. If he is sitting up he nearly falls over from shaking his head so hard, but it is funny.
