My Little Prisoner

These days Collin is into EVERYTHING!!  I remember a few months ago when I was worried that he wasn’t attempting to crawl yet, so I would help him practice & encourage him to push up on his hands and knees and take a few steps…WHAT WAS I THINKING??

I ABSOULTELY LOVE it when I walk into another room and he comes crawling along right behind me with a huge smile on his face – so sweet!  But he is FAST!!  You literally cannot take your eyes off of him for a second or he will be halfway across the room…

eating dog food…

trying to unplug the nightlight from the wall…

putting the dog’s toys in his mouth…

pulling up on the oven door…

trying to escape outside through the doggie door…

Not that any of these things have actually happened, because I am a much better mom than that *wink, wink* but you know, I can just imagine what he might get into…right??

Now that he has crawling mastered he is working hard on standing on his own.  He can pull up on ANYTHING – even just next to a wall, and he tries to let go & can actually stand there for about a second before he either grabs back on or plops down.  Thank goodness for the built-in padding that comes with wearing diapers :)

Here he is showing off last night – he was right next to the previously mentioned doggie door & I think he was contemplating an escape plan…

And here is one of his 10-month pictures…he was sitting in the version 1.0 car seat cover (the one that came out too small).

That reminds me, I really need to get going on finishing up the new & improved version.  Seriously, this morning Collin’s little sock-feet were dangling out the end of the “bucket” seat.  Do you think that may be a sign that he is outgrowing it??

LOL – why does Collin look like a little prisoner in these pictures?  I guess he really likes his stripes these days…or maybe he is still doing time for the battery charge resulting from Monday’s incident at daycare :)

Only 2 more days till our TEXAS TRIP!!!!!

He is such a cute little escapee! Maybe I should stop encouraging Dallas to learn to crawl? She's already into everything and she can't even move around yet!

He is a-dor-a-ble! I thought I wanted my Collin to roll over, now I'm like "just hold still!" so I know I'm going to feel the same way about crawling!
