Mine's still a baby!
One next Sunday, the 13th! He can't walk yet, he get's around fine though, thank you. He actually started doing some creeping on hands and knees this last weekend. I think because his usual combat crawl didn't work so well on the beach (He looked like a sea turtle just hatched and headed for the sea). .After a few tries of that he got up on his haunches a bit more! He cruises everywhere, and I think he could walk soon if he chose to, but I don't think he will. Who knows! We rode a ferry to the beach last weekend and he discovered birds. VERY excited about seagulls.
He is really into his shape sorter right now. Great at circles, always reaches for those first. Ocassionally he gets the other shapes too. Gotta start somewhere! He's very verbal, (or should I say vocal) but not anything really recognizable. Understands a good deal, but not sharing with us yet! There may be a 'mama' at times, and occasionally, 'dada' might actually MEAN dada. Then there's the universal word "dootah".
Simple party, a few friends with babies and older siblings. Nothing big. All parties must have cake. It's a simple law of nature.
