To celebrate their 9-month birthday (which occurred on January 16), the beautiful Alexandra and Norah accomplished the following:
1/14/10 = Norah crawled for the first time. Twenty minutes later, Alex responded to Shannon saying “Hi!” with a boisterous “Hi!” of her own.
1/18/10 = Norah was able to identify “nose” and “eyes” on Curious George. Not to be outdone, Alex (a renowned kicker) somehow kicked hard enough while seated in her bouncy seat to move forward about four feet. (Maybe trying to get closer to the TV, I don’t know.)
This fatherhood thing is crazy awesome. When they call me Dada for the first time, I will likely melt into a puddle.
