Destination of nowhere...

As of the past couple weeks, Christopher is getting all around the house. He can get to his destination by crawling, scooting, rolling...and sometimes by tricking others to pick him up and take him ; ) It is amazing how much him being mobile changes things. Last week we got a fence put up in the backyard to keep him from escaping, we got the carpets cleaned and this weekend we are baby-proofing the rest of the house (gates, outlet covers, locks for the cabinets). Not too long ago we could set him down and leave the room for one second, without having to worry about what he might be doing and what he might be getting into. Now, we can set him down...sit down...and as soon as we hit the chair, we are jumping up to stop him from pulling the t.v. over on himself.
His personality has blossomed a lot too over the last couple of weeks. He is now interacting with other kids at the sitter's and gets really excited to see his cousin Ella. They talk and play now. Although, most times they are tumbling over each other, stealing toys from one another, smacking each other...or yelling back and forth. They seem less like babies now and more like little people.

What a great blog!
Loved both the pictures and your commentary. Can't wait to see you all in person in a couple of weeks.
(I'm jealous, nothing is more fun than a little one in the pool on a hot day).
