Last week just shy of 9 months, Calvin took his first step! I couldn't believe my eyes, I knew he was smart and all..but trying to walk at 8-9 months? All my sisters and nephew walked around 11 months so you could say we're a family of early walkers but he's beating us all out! We got him a activity walker toy and he toddles around pretty good with it. He will still try to walk without it and fall down after the second step. Anytime now I suppose...
There isn't a day that goes by that I don't find myself yelling something I never thought I would.
"Get your foot out of my bra!"
"Open your mouth so I can get the cat food out!!"
"Stop hitting the babies with the hammer. It's not nice!" <---- cabbage patch babies BTW, NOT real ones!
Calvin is pretty good at inventing new ways of being destructive. A few days ago I was unloading the dishwasher and he crawled over to "help". He managed to not only yank the bottom rack off the wheel track but he pulled the entire rack out of the dishwasher with pots and pans! Strong little boy!
His latest obsession is our dresser. He has figured out how to take one of the pulley handles off. He is always so proud of himself!
