My Baby is Growing Up

My darling Monkey turned 9 months old this week and it suddenly hit me. My baby isn't such a little baby any more. Today, he pulled himself up all by himself! He saw something up on top of a box that he wanted (actually, bait placed by yours truly) and he got his little fingers up there and pulled himself onto his knees and slowly walked on his knees a little bit until he was close enough to get leverage and then pulled himself right up onto his feet. He stood there for a few seconds and promptly fell hard to the side, looked around to see if Dad and I had noticed and then started crying. Isn't that always the way it goes? Obviously, he survived the horrendous fall and lives to the tell, I mean babble, the story.

I guess it's time to go baby proof the house...

They do grow and change WAY too fast!!

I catch myself calling my little guy a baby and at 17 months he isn't a baby anymore. He is a full blown toddler. Yes, he is still "MY baby" of course...but you know! ;)

Enjoy each moment!!!
