Almost Toddling

Well, really not almost. Getting there, but slowly. He is still technically a crawler. Nick will take a few steps when prompted. He does seem to want to walk, but seeing as he gets over excited, and thus his head gets way out in front of his body when trying to walk, which then results in a crash, which then results in the comfort that he can just crawl and get there faster. He does really well when he doesn't "realize" he is actually walking.

Tonight, for instance, he was pushing around the dining room chairs, because, you know it is fun to re-arrange furniture. He got one stuck, and walked the two steps to the other by himself, with out realizing what he was doing.

I don't think it will be long before I am indoctrinated into the role of a "toddler mom", but for now, I am content with the happily crawling, thus slightly easier to keep up with,version of my little man.

Yesterday was an anniversary for Nick. One year ago yesterday, I brought my little man home from the hospital, 111 days after he was born. I remember thinking I would never get to bring him home. Now, not only did I bring him home, the first year has already gone by. My how quickly this year has flown. How much he has grown!
In other news.... Nick took a few steps today! Nick still has his therapy every other Monday. Today, His therapist decided to see how well he could do standing on his own. He will stand unassisted on his own for a few seconds. When prompted, he even took a few steps. It won't be long now - but OH I am not ready for this!

Can Someone Please Tell Me....

Can someone please tell me why a child who seems to absolutley love a particular food, so much that he eats the entire bowl of it, will two days later, when trying to be fed the same EXACT food again, spits it out, and furrows his eyebrows at his mother. Yeah, happens alot!

Also, could the same someone tell me how to baby proof when your child figures out that he can stand ON A DOG to get on the couch. Came into the living room the other day to find Nick on the couch. I couldn't figure out how in the world he got up on the couch. Until I saw him do it again. Took a photo, then got him down, again. How do you baby proof this?????
