Get up - Stand Up....and other Stuff

Lil Chloe is now 10 months old! She weighs in at 16 lbs 9 oz and she is about 28" long. She is babbling non stop, and waving "hi" to strangers. It's fun to watch people stop, smile like goofballs and then wave back to her. Chloe has reached another milestone....she is pushing up to the standing position. She can accomplish this feat if the object she is using to push herself up is at her waist or lower. She uses the stairs, the bottom rung on our dining room chairs, and Camdyn's red folding chair in order to push herself up. She seems so small to be standing there like that. So, I take her hands and try to help her walk and she is all hula girl, with her belly wiggling back and forth while she tries to muster up the control to take a step. I predict that she is going to walk after her 1st birthday, she still has a long way to go before that will happen....I'm guessing she'll be 14 months old when she takes her 1st step!

Yes, I realize that Chloe is only wearing one babyleg and it's a completely strategic wardrobe

statement. Her uncovered leg provides her with enough traction to crawl on our wood floors.

When both knees are covered she ends up in a face plant.

Look at me, Mama! I'm Standing!
