we have lift-off!

Imagine my surprise last night with Rohan sat up in his tub, leaned forward, grabbed the opposite side of the tub, pulled with his arms, and lifted that cute butt of his OFF THE TUB FLOOR! Granted, he did not stand all the way up, but I was floored. Floored!

After the bath, when he was lotioned and diapered and dressed, I took him over to his play area to see what's what. How far could he pull himself up? Could he hold onto something and stand on his own? Pretty far, and yes. After about 10 minutes of this structured workout, we rolled around on the floor in fits of laughter and got a little too worked up for bedtime (oops). If we keep working on this, though, I think we may skip crawling altogether and go straight to walking!

don't teach your kid how to walk until they understand the meaning of "NO!" or you'll get yourself in trouble!!

haha - he seems to be learning the walking thing on his own! although we do practice in the crib every morning. he stands up, holds onto the rails, falls, tries to pull himself up again. he wants this bad!
