Oren is crawling and pulling up, but it slow to the cruising and still hasn't got much core strength - squishy, squishy tummy. And he still falls and bonks his head on everything. But he's big on the communication. He does point, and has different sounds to go with his pointing if he is just interested, or if he wants something. He consistently and appropriately signs more, all done, eat and milk. He usually says "Moah" when he's signing for more too. He has a few other "words" he uses semi-consistently (Mama, Dada, muh-muh for milk, hi and yay). He waves, claps and does high-fives. He beeps everyone's nose. He initiates games, and will play along when I initiate games. He repeats sounds and actions very consistently.
It's super crazy to me, because DD was SO into activity, and at this age was climbing onto the kitchen table, cruising everywhere, walking with a bucket and standing unassisted, and all of this communication stuff for her came later. But she is very precocious with her language now (and pretty uninterested in mastering gross motor skills).
Also - he can throw a ball. I don't think DD could throw a ball until she was like 2. Oren plays fetch with himself, it's hilarious. He'll throw the ball, then crawl after it, and throw it again, and crawl after it.
