Wow!  I have a ton to say about this kid.  What a week this has been for his development!  Let's see...first of all, I think that I have mentioned that he sits alone.  So far, it is only for a minute or 2 before he gets distracted and falls over.  Anyway, he had never rolled over.  I found this highly amusing that he would sit before rolling.

Well, he has rolled AND rolled AND rolled some more.  He loves it.  This has made for some ANGRY awakenings in his crib, but overall, he loves rolling.  I went to change over laundry yesterday and found him 180 degrees turned and rolled over from how I had left him. 

He has started scooting.  He's scary good at it.  His older siblings didn't crawl (either of them) until the day after their 1st birthday.  They both waited to walk until just before 15 months.  I think that he might be wanting to get in on the action!

Now, for the thing that I wanted to get chronicled most of all.  He responds to questions.  I'm not even joking.  If you ask him if he wants something, he will do 1 of 2 things.  He will either reach for it OR....HE WILL SHAKE HIS HEAD NO!  I'm not even joking.  I got it on video on my phone.  He did it twice on my video.  Mark and the kids have all seen it.  I don't know what to make of it, but it is truly amazing.  In the middle of the night last night, I offered him his paci and he shook his head no and pursed his lips.  It isn't a fluke, it is a real response.  Pretty crazy.

Still no teeth.  I'm going nutso with this teething.  I'm not sure that they will never break through.  They've been SO close forever, it seems.  Oh, well, they'll come eventually!

Well, that is it. Just wanted to get some stuff written down.  Thanks for stopping by!

Go Keaton Go!! I can't believe he is responding to questions, but how nice is that?? Then you at least know what he does/doesn't want, eh? That's awesome! Can't believe I've never met this little boy :(.
