Anyway, don't die of shock, but here's an actual update on our littlest person.
Levi is pulling up now, AND standing up in the middle of the room. He triumphantly smacks his fat hands on the coffee table in triumph. He also crawls VERY fast!
He is also getting pretty handy at this whole NOM NOM NOM thing. See evidence of banana destroying abilities, to left. Still totally variable whether/how much he's actually ingesting, but he's having a blast with it so his budding relationship with solid foodstuffs is going well.
Favorites besides banana include green beans (frozen are fun too for the soothing feel on the gums), soft cooked squash Mama fished out of the soup, orange slices grabbed off the big kid's snack platter, roast beef pieces, and scrambled egg.
(If you're curious about our approach to solids right now, it's a mish mash of Baby Led Eating and real food for babies. Only, no liver. *shudder* If I won't eat it, he doesn't have to!)
We are really loving our used Didymos wrap we bought. It is far and away getting the most love of any of our carriers right now. Micah has always liked the mei tais best, but is very partial to the wrap as well. He grabbed Levi the other morning to squeeze in some extra daddy/baby snuggle time while getting ready for work.
(Babywearing geeks, that is a back wrap cross carry with chestbelt. Pretty much our favorite, although I am loving the rucksack carry more and more these days, especially when wrapping in public!)
Levi is a total joy right now - I forgot how much fun this age is! He is a very happy baby and his funny expressions and giggles are beyond adorable. I told Micah I think I am a babyholic - each baby seems cuter than the last and each babyhood seems more precious! :)
