On the move!

Preston has been walking really well for about two weeks now. The kind of walking where his feet will touch the ground and he'll be off for the races. It's very cute, but the problem lies in the fact that he now has both hands free to get into stuff. We work really hard at trying to give him appropriate things to get into, but he actually has a sixth sense makes him want whatever he's not supposed to have. Cords of any kind, anything decorative, small screws and houseplants. Fun times.

He's seriously talking up a storm. I've heard that kids can focus on either walking or talking, and I'd say that he leaned toward mastering the art of language first. His vocabulary consists of: dada, mama, hot, up, down, ball, no, eat, go, shoes (sounds like shis) socks, (sounds like ox) dog, light, mooo, woof-woof, meow, baby, bath, bed, buh-y (for his bunny), tuh (truck) and he does the signs for more, milk, all done, eat, and please. His signing has come in really handy, but now that he's becoming more verbal, I am not sure how many new signs we'll introduce.

He can also bust a move. His new thing is to walk to Kevin's alarm clock, push the sleep button, and groove to whatever station it's set to. Even static or NPR. So far, it appears he's inherited Kevin's dancing skills, but nothing a couple of years of tap or jazz class won't fix, right?

As the weather gets colder, we are desperate to do as much as possible outside- trips to the park, playing in the yard, walks to friend's houses, etc... I'll try to post more pics in the coming weeks, but lately, my hands are too full for the camera. :) Here are some fun pics from this past week...

I do not appreciate your slanderous remark regarding my dancing prowess. Our son will be lucky if he inherits my skillz on the dance floor.
