Today’s photo: Breakfast (plus 2 important updates)

13 Feb

A couple quick updates: teething is proceeding right on schedule, with a confirmed two teeth now clearly visible on the bottom (and I think perhaps we can feel more coming in), and possibly some up on top getting ready to come in as well. Poor guy has been having teething pains, mostly in the middle of the night, but he’s a trooper, aided by lots of comforting from his sleepless parents and the occasional application of teething gel.

More importantly: the young man is figuring out how to crawl – and Sunday afternoon, he actually got it! Butt up in the air, propped up on his front arms, he scooted forward! It was a legitimate crawl, though just a one-time deal. But he did it again this morning. It won’t be long until he figures out how (or builds the strength) to do it for extended periods. At that point, of course, the entire apartment will be up for grabs. We’re still not sure how we’ll deal with that; the kid has boundless energy, and we can just imagine the hijinx he’s about to get into…

And here’s today’s photo, taken at breakfast this morning. He decided he wanted to hold the spoon and feed himself. Results, as you can see, were less than ideal, but it’s a start. (He grabbed it with his left hand; will he be a southpaw?)
