Emery is a champion eater, hardly able to get the food into his face fast enough. He seems happiest when we lay it out on the tray and let him handle it himself, although this certainly isn’t the neatest route. His favorite right now is banana but sweet potatoes and avocados run a close second and third. He also likes bread with hummus, carrots, and peas.
I don’t know what it is about my offspring but wow, do they ever get their legs under them in a hurry! Emery has been pulling himself around on his belly for several weeks. He started getting up on his knees a few weeks ago and we thought, “Oh cute… he’ll be crawling soon!”. A few days later he was getting up on his hands and feet, kind of like a downward dog. And in the last few days he is wowing us all by standing up on his own. At first it was using my hands, then a laundry basket, and now it’s pretty much constant… the couch, the plants, the television stand.
I do love to see my boys step through these phases but my goodness… the child isn’t even seven months old and he’s walking behind the stools and laundry baskets! He knows it’s a big deal too – he is so proud of himself!
He definitely has Oliver’s 8 1/2-month record in his sights!
