Regardless of how he gets there- he is EVERYWHERE. Favorites? Pushing open the screen door to let the dogs in, playing in the dog's water bowl, and of course, chasing the dogs.
Pulling up- it's so fun to watch his slow, deliberate movements to get himself into a standing position. He lifts a hand and waits to steady himself before raising the next. Then scooting his knees up under him before taking the final step to pull himself all the way up. I know soon enough he will be able to do it quick as lightening, so right now I'm enjoying the 'process' it takes.
Reading. Forgive the poor quality of this photo, but I couldn't resist. I found Jackson like this reading his favorite 'touch and feel' book all by himself.
Oh, and while I certainly don't consider this a milestone, I stood Jack up against our dining room armoire and took this super cute picture. It's hard to believe sometime soon he'll be standing on his own and taking those first steps. . .
And my favorite memory of the day (ok, week): After getting home from a BIG day of errands Jackson was elated to be free from the car seat, stroller, and being held. He speed (low)crawled over to the music table, pulled himself up, and grinned. At that moment I let out a hiccup, one of those very loud, sometimes embarrassing, HUAAH noises and Jackson burst out laughing. He continued to laugh at each hiccup I had- oh how I love that baby's laugh.
