Bumps and Bruises

Not to mention being dirty.

That's the phase Colin has just entered.
And when exactly will this phase end?
I'm guessing years.

Last weekend he decided to throw caution to the wind and see what life was like standing on his own two feet. Since then, we haven't been able to get him to stop pulling himself up on anything and everything. In fact, I now find him standing up in his crib every time I go get him up.

He's gotten a few bumps on the head and a scratch on his cheek (the scratch we have our brick fireplace to thank for), but Colin is determined, and he gets extremely happy when he succeeds.

With his new sense of adventure, he has taken to opening the bottom drawers throughout the house. This one in the kitchen is a favorite of his because of all the fun things inside.

And he is quite the helper...look at him helping me fold the laundry :)

In other news, his third tooth just popped through the other day, and according to our home scale, he weighs about 17 lbs. He's growing up so fast!

Just wait until he starts feeding himself. Then you'll really know what a dirty kid is. :)

Have fun!
