Natural Progression

So, about a month ago, all AJ could do was lie on his back. Sometimes he'd roll over, but that was pretty much it for his bag of tricks. I mean, he was darned cute and all, but pretty stationary.

Then he started his belly crawl.

Around that time, we really started working on this:


Maybe a week ago, he started doing this (not always with the pillow):


And a few days after that, he did this:


And a couple of days ago, this:


Well, I didn't get a picture of it, but today, he pulled himself to a stand by the couch. Since _his_ intent was to climb _onto_ the couch, he managed to take a few steps, "cruising" down the couch, prior to falling over and hitting his head. :) He's been doing a lot of that lately.

They tell you that it all happens so fast....but really...it's been like three weeks since he was a lump. Now he _HAS_ lumps from falling over and hitting his head so often! It's so bittersweet. I mean, I really am proud of him when he pulls himself up (and he's obviously so proud of himself)...but he's growing and changing so fast!

Sigh...

Good luck with baby-proofing the condo!! My nephew was visiting recently (his parents too), and he had started really walking (as in room-to-room) just two weeks before. I had to move everything to high ground .. and he still found stuff!

Yes, they grow up so fast.

He's very cute, and has eyes that tell you he will be a very dynamic person...LOL!

Congrats with his development.
