Graham hasn't taken any steps on his own, but he now loves to walk holding onto his pooh train that he got for his birthday. He's getting pretty good at it. =)
A new thing that Graham has just started to do in the last week is carefully letting go and standing on his own. He is so cautious! This morning he stood for about 10 seconds. Hopefully this means that he will figure out walking pretty soon. Otherwise, I'm not sure how much longer I'll be able to carry him - he is getting so big and heavy!
Graham makes a lot of messes, but it's my pleasure to pick up after him. Every morning he has to make his rounds. First he opens the end table in the living room and pulls out all the remotes. Next he goes into the kitchen to look for leftover food in the seat of his high chair, and pull down the dishrag from the oven door. Then he finds his diaper bag and empties it. Last he looks to see if any doors are open for him to explore (I try to keep them closed). He also loves to pull items out of kitchen cabinets, empty trash cans, and clear off any surfaces he can reach. He keeps me on my toes!
