Month 9

This month has been chock full of changes for us. Indio is crawling at warp speed and definitely making us rethink much of the organization of our house since anything within two feet of the ground is fair game for him. He loves to pull himself up while holding onto the furniture or our hands and is ready to take his first steps. Cassius has fallen prey to Indio's curiosity, and has become his own personal jungle gym!

Indy finally babbles the wonderful sound of 'mama', though I still don't think he is calling either of us with his 'mamas' and 'dadas'! He loves blowing raspberries on our arms and bellies, while Emil and I try to sleep. It's cute, even in the haze of the early morning.

I've been working this month [doing a short-term stint at a Montessori school here] so we decided to look into childcare for Indio. We found a wonderful woman, Maria, who will be looking after Indy 3 days a week. He has only been with her one day so far, but he seems to love it! I, on the other hand, was a ball of tears on my drive into work that day.

Going to the babysitter for the first time.

Indy has become quite a foodie, expanding his repertoire to include Vietnamese pho, Korean kalbi, Indian butter chicken and curried cauliflower, and now homemade Italian food at Maria's place. He is eager to try everything and anything, and often protests when we are eating in front him and not sharing!
What's summer without watermelon?

I didn't know what everyone was talking about when they kept telling us, "Just wait until he's about 9 months old because that's when babies are so much fun," until now. Everyday is an adventure with Indio, who keeps us laughing and loving him more with each passing day.
