9 Months, 3 Weeks 2, Days
Thanks to Tabitha's comment, i signed up for the free add-on feature to Blogger that allows you to phone in audio and have it posted on the site. You'll see i tried this with Henry tonight so that you could hear him. The problem is that you dial the number, put in your code, and then after the tone it just starts recording. Henry doesn't exactly comply with the tone so tonight after a few false starts we at least got Henry laughing. I'll try again a little later, but hopefully this will tide you over.
Henry did something else for the first time today-- he pushed himself forward. Brenda said he had backed himself into a wall and was really upset. She left him to sort himself out and he managed to push against the wall and propel himself forward. Then he got excited and dug his toes in and managed to do it again. He didn't repeat it there later or at home but hopefully these things will start accumulating and he'll find a way to crawl forward! We can't wait to cheer him on.
Today's picture is what he looks like now when he gets excited-- he just kicks his legs and shakes his arms!
