Crawling is for Suckers

The Munchkin’s favorite thing to do for a while has been standing. It used to require me holding his hand, but could also be satisfied by putting him in the exersaucer or Johnny Jump up. Not any more. I made the mistake decided to see if he could hold himself up on the edge of the exersaucer, and that is all he wants to do now: Play with the exersaucer toys…while standing next to the exersaucer. Yay?

I moved the exersaucer back to it’s “hideaway” position in the corner of the living room, between the two couches, and that was not a problem for The Munchkin. Slowly, but surely, he made his way over to the couch, just like he did when the exersaucer was next to the dining room chairs. (I wasn’t sure if he’d be able to hold on w/o something he could wrap his little hands around.) It was going well, but as with all good things…

…They eventually come to an end, lol. Faceplant in Mommy’s lap.

But my little man wasn’t done! He surprised me by turning himself around and attempting to scoot over to the exersaucer, presumably to pull himself up and start the whole process again.

He ended up scooting back to me. We’re not quite there yet. 😉
