Jeff's sister, Emily, and her family came down to Utah for a wedding this weekend, so Jeffy got to play with his only cousin. Clara is 14 months old and really cute. At first they got along great. Clara came to sat by him and was very patient while Jeffy tried to figure out what was going on. He's not extremely coordinated yet, being only almost 7 months old, so Clara got a few scratches. But they were getting along great! Until . . . .

Clara gives "love" by resting her head on someone. It's super cute, but Jeffy didn't think so. She sat close by him and laid her head on his head, and he just lost it. I got a picture at the exact right moment. I have never seen him make that face or that sound before. He was absolutely petrified!! He wouldn't go remotely close to her the rest of the evening. By the next morning they were friends again. We got lots of cute pictures of the two of them together, but I have to wait to upload those until I can find the card reader. For now, here's a video.

They're 7 months apart and almost the same size. They weigh almost the same, too. But she can walk, and he's still working on crawling. It's funny because Clara would look at Jeffy and it seemed like she was thinking "Hey, what's the matter with this kid? Why can't he walk like me?" And Jeffy was thinking "Wait a minute, she's the same size as I am, but she can walk. What's going on?" It was kinda funny.

On a different note, Jeffy is getting REALLY close to crawling! He's been sleeping in a play pen thing, and has discovered he can push himself onto his toes by using the side. So now he does that all the time, and doesn't need a wall to push off of. He gets up on his hands and toes and kinda shakes his belly up and down. It's cute. He's also spending a lot of time on his knees, rocking back and forth. It's so cute! He's getting really close. Yay Jeffy!
