9 Months and Smarter than the Average Parent

Today, Charlie is 9 months old! I know I say it every month, but WOW time is flying. It seems like every day we watch him learn something new. Playing with him becomes more and more fun every time we sit down with him. He's babbling more, becoming braver with trying to move, and eating finger foods! Here are three little videos of his newest tricks... (notice my amazement and "how did you learn how to do that?!" in the last two...and the last one explains my title for this post)

Happy 9 Months Charlie!

Those are so cute! Ian has that little toy, too, and he can sit there and open and close that laptop ALL DAY LONG! :) Maybe Charlie will share with Ian when we go see you guys!

We just can't help but laugh when we hear that precious guy laughing! I think I'm going to listen to it everyday after work! And, of course, we knew he was the smartest baby in the world!

i totally understand the "how did you learn to do that" thing! i still experience it daily in fact. :-)

i love his laugh and his wave!! i can't believe he waves side to side like that with no instruction! i think most babies do the open and close hand wave and usually start out waving to themselves first cause that's how they see it. he's so adorable and a genius baby!! wow. i'm amazed! did i mention i love his laugh!! :-)
