Sunday we went to church and had a nice lunch at home while Jonah napped. In the evening we rode the world's longest tramway up to the Sandia Peak and enjoyed a nice dinner at a restaurant at the top of the mountain. Then we trooped over to Dad's hotel, put Jonah to bed in the hotel bathtub and the men got to watch sports while I watched a movie on our laptop. As Dad would say, "It doesn't get better than that!"
So the buffin is not quite crawling yet, but he's very close. He gets up on his hands and knees and rocks back and forth. Today he even pushed forward with his legs and ended up doing some nice face-plants into the carpet. While he hasn't mastered forward movement, he is really getting the hang of rolling all over the place and scooching backward. He definitely does not stay put when you set him down. Last week I left him sitting up with his toys and came back from the bathroom to find him on his tummy wedged under a chair. He has also discovered that he can scooch over to the bookshelf and empty it of its contents. Looks like we need to start baby-proofing...

Here Jonah demonstrates his excited dance. He does this little dance for anyone and everyone who gives him attention. He dances for each person who says hi to him at church or in the grocery store. He watches people and waits for them to acknowledge him so he can greet them with a dance. It makes me sad to think that the day might someday come when he doesn't do this anymore. All the more reason to catch every moment on video, right?

Of course Jon had to try out the helmet too. It doesn't look as cute on him. Sorry, honey.
Jon is pumped about his vintage '70's Schwin road bike that was completely overhauled and tuned up like new.
And Jonah had to try Dad's bike too.
I love my Schwin "comfort bike". (aka "mom bike")
I'm starting to put Cheerios on Jonah's high chair tray and letting him play with them. I call them Obby-Os because that's what my brother called them when he was little. He's starting to get the hang of the pincer grasp (for those of you who don't read tons of baby books, that's the ability to grasp a small object between the thumb and forefinger) but he has a hard time letting go of the Obby-O once he's put it in his mouth. So for the purpose of this video I put the Obby-O in his mouth for him to demonstrate how funny it is to watch him eat it.
