My Big Boy

Henry is doing something new and exciting, sitting up all on his own!  No more does he need to be propped up with pillows or giant stuffed animals.  He started doing this a couple of weeks ago.  This new feat has him feeling quite proud and he makes the happiest coos and squeals as he sits and reaches for everything around him.  We have yet to get a highchair for the house so his first highchair experience was at Mama's in San Francisco.  He was beside himself, he loved it!  Another first was his ride in the shopping cart at Trader Joes.  Not having to carry him in the carrier will make shopping a whole lot easier on me and my back.  Greta kept him happy by crouching down next to the cart and jumping up and yelling "BOO!".  They were both laughing in hysterics the whole time.  I can't tell you what delight it brought me to see them play and laugh, and seeing my little Henry sitting there in the cart.  What a big boy.

How adorable is that? I love that the angle of the picture makes Henry appear to be slanted like the leaning tower of Pisa! Kiss them from Gramma!
