Carson is making so much progress this past two weeks. He is pulling himself up from sitting to standing by holding on to the tray on the new padded coffee table. He can pull himself into a crawl position and move about two small scootches before falling back down. He spins circles and circles on his tummy.
In music class he entertained everyone by standing up and hitting the drum with one hand while holding on to it with the other hand. We are always letting him go and letting him stand without holding onto him. He can last several seconds, sometimes longer than others. He is starting to cruise along the couch and can bend over to pick up a fallen toy.
We caught him saying "da da" on the baby monitor before falling asleep one night and could hardly contain our excitement. However, he has yet to do it in front of us ;-) He is getting more vocal and says something that sounds a lot like "Heyyyyyy Youuuuuu Guysssssss" from the movie Goonies. We die laughing every time it happens.
No teeth yet but he's working hard on them. Still sleeping through the night other than our vacation, not being in his crib was not great for him. He eats more than most babies and we can't seem to satisfy him! I feel so badly for the cashier every time I come through with thousands of baby food jars, as he goes through 5 a day!
We started Baby Sign Language class last week and he wasn't really interested in sitting still. In fact, he never really sits still. Quite an active little baby! We're working on the signs for milk, eat, all done, and more. Daddy keeps trying the daddy sign but no success yet!
I have been sick for 6 days now and am very worried that Carson is going to come down with it before we leave for Hawaii on Friday . . . that could put a damper on our vacation! We'll see!
