John Thomas' Fortieth Week

TOOTH! TEETH!

<< Last week's page Next week's page >>

On Saturday (when he became 9 months old) Mom felt his first tooth. On Wednesday, we thought we saw a second tooth, but he wouldn't let us get a good look. On Thursday he gave Mommy a big toothy grin to reveal his first two teeth! And he has started using them already! He will tear off pieces of bread with his teeth. As for eating table food, he hasn't yet found a food that he can feed himself that he doesn't like. And that includes lemon wedges. He had lasagne two days in a row and gobbled it up. After his dinner on Friday we went to Pizza Hut and he insisted on sharing our meal. He had garlic bread, tomato and pizza crust.

John Thomas has started climbing stairs at home. If it's a set of 3 he's happy to go up them on his own, but for 6 or 7 stairs he usually prefers that Mom or Dad carry him up. He can crawl pretty fast now, and will sometimes chase us around the house.
