Here is the kiddo's surprised face. There was a lot of standing up alone today! It wasn't just pulling up and then letting go, either - he stood up all on his own from a sitting position. He can only do it for a few seconds and it's a little shaky, but he's doing it more and more. He has had a couple of great days, been in a great mood and had a lot of fun with J. He's still chattering a lot and at bedtime I think there was something that sounded like "Mama". I'm not getting my hopes up just yet, but it was nice to imagine I heard it.
Looking forward to spending some time with my little Monkey this weekend.
