Up...up...and away?

A very exciting thing happened just last week. Ben pulled to stand in his crib! We knew he was getting close to figuring it out and sure enough Daddy found him standing up in his crib one morning last week. Now he's pulling to stand everywhere and it's scaring the hell outta me. It's OK in the crib where he has a railing to hold onto plus he can fall onto a nice soft mattress. It's not so OK when it's on the side of the crib with no railing to hold onto plus he can fall on a very hard tile floor! Here's a pic of him standing in his crib (I wanted to post a video but can't seem to get it to load).


  1. YEAH!!!! I know it's scary in the "unsafe" surroundings, but I know you are so proud of his progress!!!! That's fantastic!!!

  2. woo hoo! that is so great. i hear you about the diggers, esp since we have hard wood floors throughout. drake has hit the front / back of his head countless times and still seems okay. :) babies heads are designed to take some bumps as they learn their new tricks.

  3. AWESOME! You know what's neat - Alex just started doing the same thing. He just figured it out in the last week... :-)
