A Few Mini-Milestones

It seems like every time I would turn around this week, Holden was getting the hang of something new. I can see his little mind at work. He is twisting and turning his body just so that he can normally get where he needs to go. But still not crawling. I sit and watch and think that any moment it’s going to happen. And I don’t want to miss that moment.
Holden finally learned the sippy cup. I haven’t been too consistent with it because it felt like such a waste of time. For the past couple of months he would have much rather have watched that cup fall to the ground than drink from it. And since it’s a “no-leak” cup, it takes some major oomph to get the water out of the thing. But on Monday it happened. He finally got it! And a taste of water was the grand prize.
He isn’t pulling up to a standing position yet. He is just on his knees in this picture. But we did decide to go ahead and drop the crib that particular night.
I think ball might eventually be his first word. Since he is a little boy, we have been given a few of these little balls and he laughs when I say the word. And here he decided to use his little basketball as a chin pillow. How very clever of him!

The picture of him and the "chin pillow" is the most adorable thing. He's such a sweet boy. He reminds me of Colin at that age.

Oh my goodness that little face just makes my heart melt.

Could there be a cuter face peeking over that crib?

And, how come your floors always shine??? That wood is oh-so pretty and anything that dark should show some dirt/ amaze me!
