10 Months Old

Standing up on my own- and as you can see, I love it!
 Hey everybody! Hope everyone's having a good week. I'm doing all right- and on Monday, I turned 10 months old! That's right, just two months until my birthday.

Things have generally been good, just a week after I got my first tooth I'm starting to get my second. But I haven't let it bother me- in fact, I'm smiling more than ever!

We had a very fun day on Sunday. Mommy and Daddy and I, along with Poppop Joe and Mommom Ev, drove up to Uncle Stephen and Aunt Cheryl's house in New Jersey for a celebration for my Cousin Shoshi and her new husband, Reuven! They got married in Israel last month, and they had the party to celebrate with the people who couldn't make it to the wedding. It was so great to see everyone, and Mazel Tov, Shoshi and Reuven!

The whole gathered family- that's me up front!

The newlyweds- Mazel tov! 

Also exciting- the Eagles scored 59 points Monday night! I've got a feeling the next time that happens, I'll be a lot older than I am now!

Anyway, I'm excited for next week, when it's my first Thanksgiving, Mommom's birthday, and Cousin Daniel's birthday too! That's all for now, thanks for checking in everyone!


P.S.: Here's a bit more of what I've been up to:

What's up, Cousin Joshua?

I'll be crawling before you know it

Bring me more food!

See you later!

Not-So-Toothless in Minnesota

Ah! My hat!
Hey everybody! I'm back home now after an exciting visit to Minnesota with Mommy and Daddy. I got to spend time with Grammy and Grandpa, as well as a whole bunch of other family and friends. We even got pretty nice weather- for November anyway. Once again I handled the plane ride quite well, which Mommy and Daddy really appreciated!

Something else exciting happened while we were on the trip- I got my first tooth! It's a little tiny one, right in the middle on the bottom. Mommy and Daddy thought for months that I was getting one- and there it was. I just can't wait to go to Poppop's office and get it cleaned!

Anyway, here are some highlights from our visit:
Here I am in Daddy's old highchair

Yea, you remember this, right Daddy?

This new one's more my style- mmm, Cheerios!

Skyping with Aunt Amy- turn the computer this way!
Out to lunch with my pal Isaac

Daddy wants to read his book- but I want to eat it!
 We had more fun Sunday morning, when my great-grandparents, uncle, aunts and cousins came over for brunch:

Aunt Bonnie and me

Tearing into the croutons- that tooth will come in handy soon!

My meals for some reason get a huge audience

So now we're back in Philadelphia, and it's great to be sleeping in my own crib again. I'm excited for more family next week, for Cousin Shoshi's wedding party in New Jersey! Time to get back to sleep, thanks for checking in!
