Careful what you wish for...

Oh man, we got what we wished for and now we are in for trouble! After C's 9 month appointment, we decided to encourage him to pull up on things. In the couple weeks since, he has made huge progress. So this morning Matt went to grab a bottle from the kitchen and turned around to see this: C had crawled to his toy bin, pulled up onto his knees, and went through the toys. Then when he was put down for a nap, Matt went to check on him and we was standing up in his crib! I am happy that he figured this out, but now getting him to sleep is 10 times harder...he pulls himself to standing, and can't figure out how to get down!

Hangin Out and Getting Around

Yesterday C and I took a road trip for the day, spending time with two of my girlfriends in NH. We had a great time, and C was a good sport and modeled some winter hats for my crafty friend. We ate lunch at a cozy seafood place on the water and C had the perfect spot near the outdoor deck, so he could look at everyone as they passed by. Both my friends are amazing with cameras, so I have a whole album of the day that I will be printing up!

Monday was his 9 month appointment and he is weighing in at 22 lbs and 7 oz. We have decided to work on helping him pull himself up (no small task with that gut). We have done a little each day, and it is amazing how much he has already picked up...he is now constantly eyeing the coffee table and wanting to stand up! He still drags his tummy as he crawls, but he is getting fast. In the time it took me to rinse off a bottle, he had made his way across the living room and into the kitchen!

Moving and Shaking

We had a great weekend and C was a rock star. It was our 10 year college reunion, and we had a busy weekend that included Friday dinner, Saturday lunch, and Sunday breakfast with friends, being babysat on Saturday night and a house guest too, and through all of it he smiled, put on his cute face, and tried to make friends. He would catch short naps when there was a dull moment between gatherings, but pretty much he just wanted to socialize like usual. We got a fun toy from Aunt Kate in the mail which has been a favorite all weekend. The second picture shows 2 things that he is into right now: running his tongue over his bottom two teeth, and trying to "climb" up our legs in an effort to pull himself up.
