Climbing Up on EVERYTHING all of the time.

Facial bruises and a cut on next to his eye. 
I just can’t seem to protect him. He is unstoppable. 
He as two teeth fully grown on the bottom of his mouth, that make a little V.
His four top teeth have now all broken the skin and are on their way out. 
He says “Mama”, “Dada” and Mah- for more we think. 
This kid is an eater. His favorite foods are cottage cheese and yogurt. 
He also most Oat/ Fruit purees.
He loves to eat well cooked broccoli and green beans too. 
He will see me eating, and will start clenching his fits, shaking and yelling. This is my signal he wants some. 
He loves to be read to. We read ABC books, and he especially loves books with textures in them, like the kitten book we have. 
He mostly sleeps through the night, although 3 times a week he will wake up and want a bottle. 
He is cruising everywhere, and he has bumps and bruises all over his face to prove it. 
He is a super fast crawler. He pulls himself up on to furniture and can climb up the stairs and so we have become a gated house. 
Karl thinks he will be walking any day now, but who knows. 
Here he is out to lunch with us the other day.
I love these kids.
