Jeremiah Opens Gates and Climbs Stairs

Today Jeremiah decided he was going to open the gate at the bottom of the stairs, climb up the stairs, and close the gate at the top of the stairs. We watched him do it, then got the camera and he did it again! Here's the video (kind of long, but we're sure family wont mind).

JP turns 11 months & counting

Jeremiah is now walking!! He still loves to crawl all over the place because he can get there faster but look out he's walking now. He still stumbles and falls a lot but I bet by his first birthday he will be running. He has 6 teeth now and I think he's working on more. He does not like to let me look to see if more teeth are coming in. He is teething on everything and drooling a whole lot. He said his first true word now "book". We think his favorite color is green (for now). He seems to like all his toys or balls that are green. He now communicates in his baby language telling us what it is he wants. He is more expressive about what he does and does not like. He walks (or crawls) over to us just to give us hugs. He loves to try and feed himself. Which he doesn't have down yet. He does have the right idea on how to use the utensil but most of the time it just goes all over the floor or all over him instead of his mouth.

He enjoyed going to Cali and did extremely well with the very long (15hr. straight through) drive. We left at night so he could sleep the whole way. It was a great idea and worked out wonderfully. He had a lot of fun visiting his Uncle Scott, Auntie Christine, and cousins Avery and Mia. They have changed so much in just two months.

Jeremiah got to open his birthday gift from Uncle Scott, Auntie Christine, and cousins Avery and Mia. He was really good and made sure to read the card first.He was so excited to see what he was going to get...

He loves his new toy and plays with it all the time. Thank you Uncle Scott, Auntie Christine, and cousins Avery and Mia!

We also saw Uncle Nate and Auntie Marsha who is ready to deliver Baby Erika any day now. It was a short visit but it was nice to see them. She is past her due date and ready for Erika to be born.

We also saw each of the Grandparents.

We had fun visiting with everyone and wish that we could visit more often. The time is never long enough.

Things that Jeremiah is looking forward to...camping, his first birthday, his baby sister Rachel, having another cousin, and learning to ride a bike!

Jeremiah and the toilet paper roll

Jeremiah had a lot fun discovering the toilet paper in our bathroom today!

His look makes me think that he was waiting to see if he was in trouble or if I was just going to let him play. I decided that since this was his first time that it would be fun to let him play with the toilet paper, take pictures, and see what happens. We are not made of money though an next time will not let him play with it.

Now that he has discovered it we know that he will be back trying to play with the roll again. We knew that this day would come but still thought that it was far off. Some more pic's for you all to see and enjoy.
