Up up up DOWN

Zander is regularly climbing the stairs - when he can get to them. We keep them gated off for most of the day. He even tries to go back down but his prefered method is head-first...so we are working on that. The other day, he did try and sit down and scoot one leg and then the other over the edge of the stair but even that is awkward for someone with no balance. Crawling down backwards is still confusing - he tries to go up if you position him to go down. All in good time.

No second tooth yet, just the hint of it. Just the afternoon whining and moaning until someone more interesting than mom comes home. If the front door is open, Zander is drawn to it like a moth to the light. He crawls over and stands at the storm door, peering out at the world, at the children playing after school. I got to see this from the outside when I dashed out to the car to get his diaper bag this morning. DAMN CUTE. You can see just his little round head and little round blue eyes. We can't wait until it gets warmer so he can play outside. He's very curious.

Nothing dramatically new. He's getting faster, stronger, heavier every day. He had a cold earlier this week and rubbed his snot all over me. Seems now that I have the same cold I am not extended the same priviledges.
