9 months!

Theodor has now been gracing our fair earth with his presence for a longer period of time then he was inside of me, growing and stretching out my once fab stomach.He has completely enmeshed himself in our lives and we are all happier for it.

So much is happening now and at a whirlwind pace. He pulls himself up on EVERYTHING. The first week of this new skill he was unsteady, fell often, and seemed to need everything just so to make it up on his feet. Now a good week later he is pulling himself up on anything, even if it is moving, and although he still falls he rolls right out of it and keeps on going. He now "cruises" (I didn't come up with this term- it just means walking with the aid of your hands being supported by objects in a room like a chair or table) from table to sofa to dishwasher and back again with a huge grin on his face.

When I see how much he has accomplished in a week I can't imagine what I will be writing about at the end of this month.

We all had a great Christmas and New Year and I am looking forward to all the wonderful things this year will bring us.

We got Theodor one Christmas present, A Duplo Lego set. He likes it! Right now he mainly likes banging the blocks and putting things in and out of the container which is so cute to watch. You can also see where our couch table normally is in this picture....
And where he recently pushed it to! He pushed it all the way to our TV and then walked it back:D

This metal storage locker from Ikea is one of his favorite things to "play" with. There are 2 keys in keyholes which he is constantly taking out so that he can then slam the doors open and close.

Trying to climb up on to his walker, surprisingly he didn't fall.

Deciding that perhaps walking around the walker makes more sense.
