Calvin is growing up so fast – can’t believe he’s already 7 months old!

He’s standing up really well, now – he’s been working on it almost constantly for the past few days. It’s funny – he already seems to be getting frustrated, like “okay, I’m standing up, now what?”

He’s doing a great job of keeping his balance. The other day I watched him stand up, bend over and pick up a shoe, and then stand back up without losing his balance. It’s funny how simple things like that are so amazing when you see a baby do them for the first time. He’ll take steps if he’s holding onto something, but so far hasn’t tried to take any steps while he’s free standing. I suspect it will happen soon (probably too soon for my comfort).
