9 Months Old Today AND First Steps!!

3/4 of a year old! My how time flies. In honor of his 9 month birthday, Noah took 2 steps today- BY HIMSELF!!! These were his first two solo steps ever. They weren't repeated, so there is no physical evidence, but I saw it with my own two eyes. He also now says 'ba' and also sometimes 'va'. Yesterday it actually sounded like he was saying 'va va,' which sounds very close to the Portuguese word for Grandma (what he will call my mom). I know supposedly at this point he just makes sounds and doesn't know what they mean, but today he went toward Boston and said 'Ba!' It was seemed so legit!

I would never have guessed a few years ago that in my future was stay at home mommy-hood. While sometimes I do miss adult interaction and problems that can be solved with logic, on days like today I consider myself to be extremely lucky. I got to see my son take is first steps- how cool is that?! Every day I get to watch a little human develop- and it's pretty darn amazing.

It's been a rough week so far in the Leis household given the awful news out of Boston. It's a city near and dear to our hearts, so there have definitely been some tears over the past few days. Luckily we have this little guy in our lives with his big innocent smile to help bring some cheer back.


  1. OMG! He is so cute I can't take it! And he is getting so big.....First solo steps at 9 months! Clearly he is advanced and athletic :) Miss you guys.
