Stands alone

We put Alex down for a nap this afternoon and I kept hearing this clicking sound from the other room, so sent Chris to check on him.  Chris says, "he's standing up!"  I said, "what??"  He had been pulling himself up on stuff recently but never in his crib.  He was playing with the dial on his mobile, which was the clicking sound I had heard.  I took pictures.

Octopus on wheels

Alex had his most recent well check on this past Tuesday and all is well.  He is 18.5 pounds, a little on the small side I guess, but the doctor said it's normal because he is so active - finally, justification for me feeling so worn out all the time!  We're not close with any other people Alex's age so sometimes I have nothing else to compare him to & don't realize this kind of stuff!
