The other day, Josiah decided that he could stand up without using anything to help him (like furniture or the wall). He was sitting in the middle of the floor and he just stood up! After the first time, he took some time to practice. He must have stood and sat down, stood and sat down, stood and sat down… Twenty times in a row. It was very funny.
He’s also been walking a lot more. The current “official” count is ten steps without falling, but I’m pretty sure that he’s had some longer walks than that. Now, if he’s standing and sees something, he’ll try to walk to it rather than sitting down and crawling.
Josiah is getting a little more cuddly with us, which is nice too. He likes hugs and kisses (when he’s happy, of course) and sometimes he’ll play like he’s wrestling me when I’m laying on the floor.
One of his bottom molars just came in as well — and with little fuss this time. It seems like his two top molars took over a week to come in, but this one came in over the course of maybe three days. The drool was back for a couple of days, but it’s already starting to dry up.
For some reason, Josiah has been waking up earlier than usual. We can’t really figure it out. We’d like for him to sleep until 6:45a to 7:15a, but he’s been waking up around 6:00a. Weird.
