IT'S OFFICIAL!!! MY BABY BOY IS ON THE MOVE!!! He has been "rockin" up on his hands and knees for quite a few weeks....although he will walk himself around the ottoman, he couldn't stand up on his own. All of that has changed in one weekend! He started officially pulling himself up this past weekend. It's hysterical! Although...that being said...bedtime has gotten a bit tougher because while he can pull himself up, he can't get back down, SO when he gets tired of standing in his bed he just cries and cries. Then we go in and open the door he immediately stops and gets a huge grin on his face like "hey guys! glad you're here!" Makes me laugh. He also started crawling last night. Talk about AMAZING....although I have a feeling we're in trouble now. I don't think it will be that much longer before he is walking....I'm going to guess that before his 9 month day (April 25) he'll be walking. I mean seriously...he is THAT close. When he plays with his toys on the floor, he is now making himself stand up and then just leans down to the toys....I'd say a matter of days before he realizes if he just straightens up he can stand. S-C-A-R-Y!!! Hubby and I were talking last night about how we've got to really get to baby-proofing the house. Make sure all the outlets are covered, and cabinets "locked". We already keep the doors to the bedrooms and bathrooms closed because one of our dogs is a chewer....so that won't be any different...we probably also should invest in a gate for the stairs, but at this point I don't know if he'll even go over in that direction. Only time will tell I suppose. :) Talk to you soon!! xox

  1. Yeah, a gate for stairs is probably a good thing. Once they get mobile they want to explore EVERYWHERE! They get facinated by steps too. It is even worse when they walk because it is even easier for them to get around. It is a fun age but exhausting for the parents. It is hard to even go to the bathroom when you are by yourself because they will find things to get into trouble!
