Teeny yogini

I just found out about a free mommy and baby yoga class where we used to attend the new mommy mixers so we checked it out today. I thought it would be fun and mellow, but today was abs and third chakra (whatever that is) day. My stomach is going to be so sore tomorrow.
Funny thing: Brandt did his first downward dog this morning before yoga class! I think babies generally do that before the figure out crawling. Brandt is crawling a bit more: he'll crawl a couple steps, then flop down on his belly and slither to his destination before pushing back up to crawl the last couple steps. He's going to be so happy when he realizes he can just crawl the whole way.
I didn't get a picture of Brandt's downward dog, but I captured his first stand. I'm not sure if it really counts, though, since he was leaning on the truck with one hand and forgot himself for a moment and toppled over as soon as he took both paws off.
Waiting for yoga class, Brandt was mistaken for a girl yet again. I tell myself it's because he's a pretty little dude, but I just don't get it. I mean, look at his outfit: all blue! Plus he had his manly brown shoes on before class. Granted he's got leg warmers on, but they're blue. And his shirt has a skull on it, for crying out loud (OK, it's a rainbow skull).
Oh, and since they have a scale at the Barbara Greenspun Center, I checked Brandt's weight and he's over 15 pounds! 15 pounds 5 ounces, to be exact. I may not have mentioned his weight results from his nine-month appointment--it was 14 pounds 8 ounces, but since he'd been puking so much for several days leading up to the appointment, it seems unfairly low.
