Just one of them days

Today was one of those great days when everything just goes smoothly. The baby slept in until 6:30, so I could shower and get ready while he slumbered away. My drive in had no traffic. Work was great and everything went to plan. When I got home the ear doctor made dinner while I played with Sammy. After dinner we walked over to the ice cream parlor for a couple of cones. When we got home the baby went right to sleep.

And now the ear doctor is watching Ninja Warrior.

Crisis averted

Bad news...I almost dropped Sam on his head this morning while trying to put him in his Johnny jump up. He was heart was beating 200 bpm.

Why did they make it so darn hard to get kids in and out of that thing?!?!?!

Pull ups

This morning I sat Sammy in his crib for a few minutes while I was getting ready for work. When I came back to get him he was standing up ON HIS OWN!!!! 

He was just standing there slapping his chubby little hand on the wall behind his crib, grinning from ear to ear.

I was simultaneously terrified (because we hadn't moved the mattress down yet, so his hip was basically at the top of the rail) and proud (because he's only just barely 8 months old and look what he figured out!)

Is this how all his developmental milestones are going to feel? Thrilling that he's figuring things out and scary that he can get hurt in new and exciting ways.
