Son #2 is really getting the hang of pulling himself to a standing position in the crib.
Today, I got home from work and walked into a silent and peaceful house. Son #1 played quietly on the living room floor. My brother was relaxing and watching tv. My husband was surfing the internet and Son #2 was taking a nap in his crib.
I sat down on the floor of my husband's office and chatted with him about the day. After a moment my husband picked up the guitar and played a soothing tune. I perused the day's mail. Time passed and then we heard a squeaky little voice coming from the baby monitor. Was he awake already?
Son #1 confirmed it. "Mama, the baby's awake."
My husband walked into the baby's room. Lo and behold our baby had pulled himself up to a standing position on his own. He stood with a cheshire cat grin and then promptly bit the railing with delight.
He is such a big boy.
