Every week Devon becomes more confident in the use of his hands. Last week he started drinking milk bottles by himself.


“He can fend for himself now,” I told Shauna. “We can set him free.”

Shauna, however, doesn’t share my enthusiasm for free-range parenting of eight-month old babies.

But this week Devon also mastered the ability to throw objects at other objects from across the room. Pretty soon he should be able to hunt down his own dinner, I think.

Look how he prepares for a killer throw.  At this rate, we should be able to set him out in the back yard to find food in no time.
