Two Buddies

Joshua and Andrew really are nuts about each other. It is SOOOO cute to watch them play together. Joshua just loves to make Andrew laugh, and Andrew loves to laugh, so it's a great combination! About 2 weeks ago, Joshua was pretending Andrew was pushing him over. It was adorable.

The push:
The fall:

Andrew, by the way, is now 8 months old. He has 4 teeth and getting better about hanging out on his tummy, although he has still yet to roll over. That's right folks...another lazy roller in the Hines household. I don't know what we're doing wrong. However, we are forcing him to spend time every day on his stomach and he appears to be contemplating thinking about considering the possibility of pursuing the idea of of these days.

He loves to eat solid long it doesn't come in a jar. He doesn't like baby food. At all. But will eat chunks of anything you give him. So, he eats lots of cheerios and steamed carrots, peas, bananas and other assorted items that make nice little pieces.

He responds very well to verbal cues and makes the sign for "milk" at the seemingly appropriate times, so I am hoping we may get some sign language out of this kid. He is babbling a good bit too these days, practicing those consonants!

As you might guess from the pictures, he still Mr. Happy-Go-Lucky and just a joy to have around!
