Getting older ... But Still Not Walking ... Or is he?!!!??!!
You'll be happy to hear that this post is about Henry getting older. He is 14 months now, and starting to look like a little boy. Although he is a champion cruiser, and will stand for a second unassisted, he still won't walk unassisted. I guess he'll just be a late walker. I've read that kids who walk later pick it up quicker, so hopefully that will translate into fewer bumps and bruises.
Henry is, however, communicating with gusto and confidence. He points at everything he wants and grunts. He has a few words. He hands me books he wants me to read to him. He points at the balloon in "Good Night Moon" when asked "Where is the balloon?" He lies on his back in the tub and kicks - I support him with my arm. He smiles and poses for the camera. Henry can also use a fork - sort of - and tries to put his own shoes on. He's very interested in putting things into other things - stacking cups are his current favorite toy. He also stacks blocks instead of just knocking them over. Although our little boy is behind in walking, he seems to be A-OK in other departments.
I can't believe how much he changed over the 2 days I was in Austin. His poops have even grown in size.
An of course, after writing this entry, Henry took his first 2 steps + 2 more steps unassisted. My eyes welled up with tears of pride and joy. :) tee hee. It's the little things that make my days special and meaningful.
