He can stand!

He only does it for about five seconds, and then he slowly lowers himself to the ground (no hands). Obviously he can do it. He stands there with a look of amazement on his face, and then it turns to a look of "OMGWTF". That's the best way to describe it. He chickens out and then sits.

My househusband (giggle) tells me that Andrew has been standing up holding the strap that hangs down under the high chair.

Yesterday, we were driving in the car on our way home from the grocery store when Andrew coughed. So I imitated him with a fake cough. Then he did a fake cough. I reciprocated, and this went on for about 2 minutes. It was so funny! My little guy definitely has a sense of humor...

What else is new? Well, he loves to blow bubbles (spit bubbles) while saying, "Mooooom...Moooooom". It is very entertaining! He puts his mouth on my thigh and blows (like the belly farts I give him)!

It would be really sweet if he could walk by his first birthday! August 25th, 2008 is the day my little boy officially becomes a toddler. However, he will still be my baby. :)

Here are some pictures from when Andrew was born (as I wipe away my tears in reminiscence)...

Mommy snuggling with Andrew in the minutes after his birth:

6 lbs, 6 oz. (so little!):

Daddy admiring his new son:

The day we came home from the hospital (look at his little head compared to my arm!):

Andrew in his preemie outfit (NB size was too big; and no he wasn't a preemie!):

Asleep in his bassinet:

No fair! You were glowing after his birth! Hard to believe he's almost one, and he's practicing standing on his own (he's got Lex beat on time, but I'm bound and determined to have Lex walking by his birthday).
