I saw snow falling for the first time! What a great way to end my visit with my cousins in Ithaca!

Now that I’m 8 months old, I’m getting more and more active.  Last Saturday, I took 4 consecutive hand-and-knee crawling steps!  I feel like I’m days away from graduating from my military belly crawl to REAL crawling!  I’m also standing up for longer and longer periods of time.  That’s with the help of a couch or a coffee table, of course.  Mama and Papa are brainstorming ways to set aside a safe, designated play area for me in the apartment.  Papa thinks we should put up gates to give me as much room as possible and Mama thinks we should get a large but lightweight playpen so that we could take it with us when we visit friends and family.  I’m not sure what I would prefer.  All I know is that I love to move!  Changing my diaper is always a challenge because I LOVE to flip over and/or kick like crazy!

Today, was a very special day.  I saw snow for the first time!  It’s still feels like winter where my cousins live!  I also met my Tita Mally and Uncle Phil for the first time on our way back to NYC from Ithaca.  We also got a chance to have dinner and play time with Uncle Wahley, Auntie Joanne and my new buddy, Jacob.  We hit it off immediately!   Hope we become as close friends as Papa and Uncle Wahley are.
