The second announcement is that Jeremiah is 9 months old (yesterday). So it may not sound like a big deal, but I can't believe how much he's growing. He's not a baby anymore. He just recently started eating finger foods. He's eaten O cereal, and whole-wheat banana pancakes (without the syrup, of course). He loves eating! He also enjoys crawling and standing. He'll even crawl over to me when I'm working in the kitchen and use my legs to pull himself up. Here a picture and video of the "big boy."
This is especially for the grandparents- just pretend he's crawling onto your lap. :)
