he stands...



Once Liam hit 7 months, he started crawling everywhere. For real crawling. And nothing stops him, either. Chairs, toys, me. He'll crawl right over whatever is in his way.


Then suddenly I turned around and he was pulling himself up to the dishwasher. And pulling himself up to everything else he could get his hands on.



And out of the blue a few nights ago, he did this:


All on his own. He went from crawling to standing. Now he won't stop. He stands up everywhere, especially using Graham's big dinosaur walker. He loves that thing.

I give it a month (maybe two) before Liam is cruising with the walker.

He even self-feeds himself puffs and cheerios and anything else he finds. He's good, too. Fast little sucker. Got to keep the carpet well vacuumed.

Holy cow. Where did this little boy come from?

It always amazes me how quickly babies go from looking like babies to looking like toddlers! Liam's growing fast!

Haha, Liam is learning from Graham! My friend Susan basically went from crawling to walking super quickly after watching her sister (also 14 months older) learn how to walk.
