Rumor Had It

About two weeks ago Eric told me he was laying on the couch watching the TV while Austin was crawling on the floor. All of a sudden Austin's head popped up in front of Eric's face... he had pulled himself up. I had yet to see the magic that day until I went into his room after he woke up from his nap, and this is what I found.

I guess it's time to lower the mattress down before he falls out.

Austin cracks me up. If you haven't seen him in the last 5 or so weeks, he is completely mobile. Crawling everywhere is no problem for him, in fact he is often scooting around the corner and down the hall to find his brothers so fast, you don't even realize he's gone. He loves to climb on top of things too, like the fire place, the box of wipes (he doesn't actually sit on them, but he tries) and yesterday he climbed on top of an old DVD player we had on the ground. He gets so proud of himself when he does that. When he made it on top of the DVD player he turned around and grinned his huge toothless grin at Eric and started bouncing up and down. And now, yes, he's pulling himself up on everything he can get his hands on. The problem is he forgets to hold on sometimes once he's up and it's a much farther fall when you are standing vs. crawling on all fours. Oh well, I guess anything is better than falling 4 feet off a doctor's exam table. I still need to post about that, one day soon.
