And just like that, Devon decided to stand by pulling himself up on the furniture. He just started to crawl two months ago and seemed to be in no particular hurry to stand — in fact, any time we tried to make him stand he would immediately bounce on his bum again.
But yesterday I went into the kitchen to check on the soup for a minute, and when I came back he was happily standing by his toy box. When Shauna came home, he was pretty proud to show her how nicely he can stand.
Shauna and I are both excited and terrified. While he figured out the standing part, getting back down is not as easy. This morning he had a big thump on the ceramic floor and he needed so many pets to stop the tears.
