the monthly pics of Everett are genious! oh, my poor under-photographed little boy... ;)
Rushil's mom, the backward crawl is how it all starts. beware, he'll figure out the other direction real soon.
Junis is moving about really fast (proper forward crawl since the day he turned 6mo and standing up since 7mo). I am also quite impressed with his sitting skills, so stable, iykwim. My others never really sat that well LOL
Now I am kind of curiously awaiting the day when he will be balanced enough to stand without holding onto something. He already does when he forgets because he takes something in his hands but will only last a second and then fall on his bum. I'll keep you updated though :) He definitely is in a hurry with his motor skills.
Also, has any of you noticed handedness in your kids yet? for a while junis seemed to prefer his left hand over his right - now I am not so sure anymore. But he is the most receptive of my kids towards music. absolutely fascinating: he loves when I sing and will stop complaining immediately when I sing him a song. I think he is the most adorable thing when he looks at me with this intent adoring gaze (my interpretation obviously) and listens to my voice - just melts my heart. even more so than when he smiles and giggles, which is pretty darn adorable too. anyway, sorry for going off topic a little ;)
