He's getting around much better now. He's still working on his balance, but is able to walk with some help. We hold his hands to help him walk around. He can also walk while holding onto his car which converts into an almost upright position. He's still a bit unsure but is gaining confidence every day. He's started cruising while holding onto the furniture which he was afraid to do before. There have even been a couple of times where he let go of the furniture and stood for a little while. I think walking is in our near future! I am super excited about it and am really looking forward to those first unaided steps!
All the sudden he's decided he doesn't want to lay down for diaper changes anymore. He almost instantly rolls over to his tummy and either takes off crawling or pushes up to a stand. When he's standing he stares out the window and holds onto the blinds for support. When he's wearing disposables it's pretty easy, but when he's wearing cloth diapers with all the snaps... It doesn't go very well! I'm thinking it's about time to retire the changing table and convert it into a bookshelf.

It does my heart good how much he loves books. When we play in his room his favorite thing to do is crawl over to the book shelf and pull books off. He loves flipping through the books, reading to himself. I used to take Carter's fingers and run them over the pages of touch and feel books. Now he'll reach out to feel the special parts of the pages on his own. He especially loves and notices pages with fake fur. His favorite touch and feel books are Pat the Bunny and That's Not My Bunny... Yesterday he pulled a touch and feel book off the shelf and flipped through the pages touching each of the special parts of the pages. It was so cute to watch!
Carter is so much fun and picks things up so quickly. Just in a few short days he's gone from wobbling along as he walked with his upright car to steady walking as he cruises on the couch. I love my little man and am so excited to see what he'll be up to next!
