Baby Steps

He's been taking steps on his own for a month or so but has been reluctant to do much more.  Just this week, he started taking four, five, six steps towards a particular point, goal, person.  He is very much in control and is very strong...no doubt he'll be diving off the couch before too long.

Matter of fact, I turned my back on him and looked back to find him ON THE COUCH.  The little monkey climbed up there using the ottoman.  Good thing we taught him to go backward off of steps...nevertheless, I won't be leaving him to get into trouble, but boy oh boy, it can happen in the blink of an eye.  Handsome rascal...
serious business...looking to go deep.
(sorry Packer peeps, but we are a blended family here.  Have to alternate game days)

He and Mario have always played hard but lately it's been so fun watching them.  They play chase and laugh...Mario encourages him to make as much mess as possible (I know, hard to believe, right?) and they smash stuff (loudly) together.  Xavi has a twinkle in his eye if his dad is anywhere in the vicinity...so much so that he's refused to go to bed for the last two nights because he doesn't want to stop playing.  We wake up with him in between us, cuddled, cozy, and I hope, feeling as loved as he is.
