Gideon is now closer towards the 12 month milestone. I knew that he is getting older every day but now he is able to do more than just sit and be cute. He can return a smile when you smile at him. He laughs at funny faces. He loves to play peek-a-boo. He is practicing his wave goodbye when someone leaves. He is feeding himself more foods with his hands. He currently loves fish sticks. He loves feeding himself. He would stuff one half in his mouth and continue with the other half with a full mouth. We hope that he learns to wait and "gum" the food first before adding more.
This weekend, Garrett and I went to a marriage retreat in Seattle. Christine Nakano invited us to attend since it was hosted by the church that she ministers to. We appreciated the helping hands to take care of Gideon while we were learning more tips and strategies to strengthening our marriage. Thank you to Grandma Chan for Friday evening fun! Thank you to Auntie Kimmie and Uncle Jonathan for watching Gideon all day on Saturday!
We took Gideon's weekly picture after giving him a bath. So his hair looks slicked back but it's just wet. He looks very different when his hair is swept away from his face. He was also really into holding the transformer's cup in the bath. He would not let it go. When we tried to switch it with another toy, he would make a yelp. So that is why he is holding a cup in his weekly picture.
