so as I mentioned last post, Callum has learned to crawl. Yvonne and I thought that this would mean a bit of relief for his weary parents (us!) as we figured that his being able to crawl around and explore his surroundings would make him content. We were right – he’s very happy to crawl all over the house, grabbing anything he can get his hands on – but now that he’s learned to crawl it seems that he won’t truly be happy unless he finds new and fun ways to stand up on things. So he’s constantly crawling over to us, climbing into our laps, and then trying to continue his way upwards to a standing position. It seems that we spend a lot of time with him standing in our laps, often jumping happily up and down.

Here is another of baby’s newest tricks (his hair’s a bit wet there – not greasy), kneeling in front of the coffee table. Also note that he is eating the table. Pretty soon I’m sure he’ll be able to push fully up on the table to a standing position, which is likely his ultimate goal, at least until he starts trying to move around standing up. I’m sure he’ll land on his butt a few times before he masters this feat, but hey, it’s all part of growing up.

until next time…

    Eating the table is an important step on the way to eating off the table, and eventually off a plate on the table….

    It’s never too _late_ for insanity, either.

    OK… please don’t take this the wrong way, since your son is a delightful little urchin, I’m sure. But I have to say that often, when I see his name, I read it as Gollum. And then when I look at his picture with those big luminous eyes, I giggle.

    There. I’ve come clean.

    Just don’t let him grab any rings and start gnawing on those.

      fear – that’s a good point!!

      I think it might be too late to officially change his name to Gollum though… and actually, he does have a teething ring that he gnaws on every once in a while, so I’d better go check it over for ancient runes right away!
