If you're happy and you know it, clap your hands

Yesterday, as Sierra and I were baking Christmas cookies, she handed Bodie some puffs. He was grabbing for the container, so we handed it to him to play with while we worked. The next thing I know, I'm stepping on something crunchy. THIS is what I looked over to see: Somehow, Mr. Industrious had managed to open the Puffs container and dump them all over himself, his highchair and my kitchen floor (which I had swept oh, about 20 minutes before)! His response to my incredulous look? To start laughing and clapping for himself!!! I guess he knew he needed to do something new and exciting to take the sting out of his naughtiness! Yep, the first time he's ever clapped - and he's been doing it nonstop ever since. It's SO cute.

And, in other milestones, he's also SITTING UP all by himself! Just in time for his 10 month birthday on Thursday, he's not just tripoding, but really, really sitting! Up until this weekend, whenever we'd try to get him to sit up, he'd just topple over - but he's now sitting and will steady himself when he starts to fall. He still can't do it for very long, but we're so proud of him that he's now doing it! Go Bodie! Here's a pic of him sitting up at church this morning... And one of him attacking his cousin Michael in the nursery...
And, just for kicks, one after the fact...


  1. He is so adorable! Congrats on the sitting up!! Go Bodie!

  2. What a cutie!! I remember Logan dumping out an entire box of rice crispies onto our kitchen floor after he had crawled inside the cabinet to fetch them. He was super proud of himself and proceeded to smash them into the floor. Gotta love them boys!!!

    Congrats on sitting up!! YAY!!!
