Will Stand for Applause

With only a few weeks to go until Shav hits the 18 month mark (the age at which my boys "normally" take their first steps), he's progressing right along, perfectly on schedule.  Who cares that all the child development books say he's late?!  :)  He's an expert at cruising, but his big, new accomplishment recently is standing up by himself, without pulling up on something.  See?

It's amazing what a person Shav will do for a little public acclamation!

And speaking of Shav, I was really hoping that this would be the year in which his sleep habits would show marked improvement.  I was looking forward to many nights of peaceful, all-night-long sleep.

So far, we're 0 for 3.

Sigh.

I love him anyway.  ;-)

I love the photo at the top! What a gorgeous family.
And I love, love, love the wee guy. And his gorgeous expression when he's accomplished this wonderful achievement of standing. Oh my darling. How I miss having a toddler :(
But joy to you (and I suppose I don't have the sleepless nights ;) x

He is such a cutie pie! I too love his look of pride as he stands there. He will be zooming around in no time! I can't believe almost 18 months have passed already in his life!

I LOVE your new blog picture. It is such a nice one of all of you. I too am going to try to change my blog title picture monthly. You are my inspiration!

I'm so sorry about the sleep, Davene...
