Wow, it has really been a long time since I have posted to this thing. I don't really think that Joshua has done anything majorly groundbreaking since the last post, but he just continues to develop in such an amazing way every single day. He is crawling like nobody's business now, finding every little nook and cranny of the house. Each day we find ourselves saying "Joshua found such and such, guess we need to find a new spot for that now!" "Such and such" would include Copper's water and food dishes, the dish towels hanging from the oven door, the coasters from the end table, and a million other things. He has also mastered crawling up the stairs, although we definitely don't let him do that alone. He loves the hallway light on the landing, smiling and laughing everytime he sees it, so that gives him a little extra motivation. He is also pulling himself up on everything, including stuff that is shorter than him (he kind of hunches over stuff... being so tall he better get used to it!). He is babbling like crazy now, and we think that he may actually know what "ma-ma" means. He says it quite a bit when Mommy is around. He is currently getting over cold #2. This one hasn't lasted as long, but the cough/congestion has been much nastier. You can hear the gunk rattling around in his chest from time to time... I need to teach him to hock a loogie so he can get that out of there. He was doing much better today, so I think we are on the tail end of this one.
Mommy and Daddy finally got their new computer (we are hoping to reenact a scene from Office Space with our old one), so once I get the right cable and play around with some software, I should be able to post some movies online. We just added some more 7 and 8 month pictures to the photo album, so be sure to check those out!
