G(ideon): What? You mean I shouldn't eat this dirt? But I can reach it? Doesn't that mean I can have it?
M: Even though you think that is true, it is not really the case. We can't really take our eyes off of you now because you are always into something.
M: I know. What else are you up too?
G: Well, I love to stand and I am starting to cruise around the window sills. It is fun to look outside and see everything that is going on. I am also getting really fast at crawling. I like to look at books and play with toys that make noise. I am starting to drive cars around too and that is really fun.
M: It is fun to see you figuring things about this world. Any new foods?
G: I love to eat and try new things. I really like yogurt, peaches, pears and bread. And cheese is pretty good, too. And blueberries are very yummy, but I need to test them all to make sure they are not too squishy.
G: I like to sleep at night. Sometime I have a hard time taking a nap, but then I get really tired later in the day. I just don't like to miss out on the action. I like to be by people.
M: And we like to have you around, Gideon.
