Standing.....without holding on!

Harrison has started to test out if he can stand unassisted. He started doing this yesterday, he will be standing holding onto the couch, then let go and have a look of amazement on his face like"look what i can do!" He only lasts a few seconds, if that but its a start.

The result of this is lots of bumps and bruises! He is such a daredevil, he has no fear! He falls a lot because he will try and walk or reach to things out of his cruising capability, and then fall. He has had 3 little bumps or bruises on his head so far........i see lots of Dr's and Urgent care visits in our future with this boy! I cant wrap the whole house in bubble wrap, or follow him around waiting to catch him all day!

On another note, I went to the store today and it is starting to become more of a challenge. At the checkout he is reaching for all the goodies lined up right at his level, all this while i try and unload the cart/trolley. How you Mums go shopping with a gaggle of kids I have no idea!

On yet another note, it is starting to become easier to let Harrison feed himself finger food than try to fight with the spoon! He cant manage to get any food off a spoon into his mouth just yet, and he would rather try and do it himself, especially at breakfast time!

8 Months Today!

Happy 8 months today Harrison!

Harrison is 8 months old today! Its going so fast, since he turned 6 months he seems to learn something new every week.
Some of the things Harrison has learned to do recently...
Sit up on his own
Pull up to stand on anything he can
Fall down allot too ;o)
Cruise just a little, he will move a few wobbly steps
Fall over!
Wave (just not very often, he is still learning)
Say Mama, he does this in his crib in the morning till I come get him.
Feed himself lots of finger food
Stay awake and play or stand in his crib when it supposed to be nap time!

Look what Harrison can do!

Harrison has been trying like mad to pull up to stand, and managing it with a little help, or if he uses Mummy or Daddy as a climbing frame.
This is the first time he stood in his crib, and the first time he did it all by is this when the trouble starts?

What I got up to on my Vacation.....part one.

...But before I tell you all about it, here is me before my vacation with bed head.

I got to go on an Aeroplane again, this time just with Mummy. She told me I was really good, and so did lots of other people on the plane. She brought lots of toys, but I didn't want to play with those, I liked the tray table thingy, and the sick bag, those were cool!

Once I got to California
I got to hang out with Mummy.

and Auntie Jules too. She took me on some walks and...

we saw some funny toadstools.

Auntie Jules played with me in the tub as Daddy wasn't around.

And we all hung out some more.

I hung out with Nana lots!

She is lots of fun! She gave me lots of kisses.

Because she thinks I am so cute you could eat me up!

She baby sat for me loads and loads so Mummy and Daddy

could do grown up things, that was really nice.

I finally got to meet my Great-Grandad! He is 82 years old and I love him very much!

He was loads of fun too!

I also hung out with Grandad, he had something funny on his head which I liked to try and eat.

and Evan too, he had funny fur on his face.

I played outside lots as it was nice and warm!

And I worked on my Buddha Belly. I did a real good job see!

I played with bubbles, they were funny!

And I got to see lots of my family.

And when my Daddy arrived we got to hang out for a whole week!

We planned a fun trip to a great place called San Diego!
Mummy, Daddy, Grandad, Great Grandad, Auntie Jules and Evan went to a nice lake called Lake Perris to go out on Grandads Speed Boat!

I went on it when I was 3 months old, but I don't remember that.

Anyway, I Grandads truck broke down for the first time in 6 years just as they were about to pull in to the lake, so they had to get towed and come home :0(

They were sad.
Lots more things happened on my vacation but Mummy doesn't want to type anymore, so she will try and do some more another day! Byeee

Love Harrison

He gets it!

I know, I know....I haven't posted anything about Harrison's vacation! I will soon I promise......

In the mean time, Harrison followed a command today! He was in his high chair having some finger food while I was preparing his lunch (which was roasted carrots, butternut squash and acorn squash, yummy!) and he decided it would be fun to keep dropping his food on the floor for Guinness. As you can imagine Guinness loves this game too :-)
Anyway, Harrison had a hand full of bananas, cheese and Cheerios and was hanging it over the side ready to let go and give them to Guinness. So I said "Harrison, please don't give those to Guinness, you eat them." And guess what....he brought his hand back and ate some! I was very impressed, and so was Harrison when I gave him a big round of applause!
