Now as you can imagine, a toothless baby can't do shit to an apple, but oh does he try. So I take a bite, he reaches for the apple and shoves it in his mouth. Gums at it for a second, sucks, gums, sucks, basically he just drools all over my apple. Then I get a bite again. Gee thanks! Then he wants it back again. I think he is just trying to be nice letting me have some bites of his apple. He repeats the not doing shit to the apple. Meanwhile he is laughing and smiling because he is like stupid excited to be....well nothing the apple. We repeat this process until I have eaten the whole apple.
The first time this whole apple-eating happened, I didn't give it back to him after my second bite. He went into a hulk-like rage. Clamping down his fists, yell/growling, and shaking until I got the apple in range where he could grab it and pull it to his mouth.
His hulk-like rages are hilarious. Most of the time it isn't because he is mad. It is almost as if he just has a burst of energy and has to let it out somehow, so he like growls and flexes and then 4 seconds later it is over. Usually it takes us by surprise, so we just stop and look at him. When it is over it hasn't even phased him just what happened, but it cracks our shit up, which makes him crack up.
His laughs are so awesome. I love his laughs. And he is getting sturdy enough to like toss him onto the bed and shit, which makes him laugh super hard. God damn I love this kid. He gives me so much joy. I am one lucky momma.
He isn't walking hands-free yet, but he is cruising around the coffee table and bravely transferring his reach from the coffee table to the couch (so standing without support for half a second at a time). I quietly hold my breath every time he does this because I still brace for a fall, but he does it and then is like 'eh no big deal'. His days of bashing his head into things are thankfully over as well. That was a scary month (like 7mos-8mos) where he was hitting it on everything! Andy was ready to get him a helmet.
I can ride my bike with no handlebars....or at least walk while holding on. One of the two.
