There are now 5 toofers in Wyatt's mouth, and a 6th one is poking through! He has 2 on the bottom and almost 4 on top. I have mixed emotions about seeing his top teeth. It's very cute, but it also makes me a little sad that he looks less like a baby than he used to. Guess I've just got to get used to it!
Wyatt is still crawling around and pulling up on everything. He has started "cruising" on furniture, and can take steps with the support of our hands or one of his wheeled toys. I'm anticipating a walker in our not-so-distant future and I'm a little frightened! He continues to use his mobility to explore household items that are not intended for his use. Pretty much anything left lying on a table is fair game to him. He likes to swipe his hands and knock everything off. While I appreciate his efforts to help us clean, I have informed him that his services aren't necessary.
With the exception of a few purees here and there, most of Wyatt's daily diet now consists of table food. He loves being able to feed himself, and actually does a pretty good job of getting most of it in his mouth. It's comical to watch him smear pieces all over his tray and drop bits of food on his bib. However, it can also be quite messy:
Wyatt continues to babble, but no real words besides dada and mama. I've been working on saying doggy and bye-bye, and I swear one time he actually did repeat bye-bye. But he has yet to do it again. We'll keep working on it!
This month has been such a blast, and we're reall enjoying this stage in his life. We look forward to the exciting changes that are yet to come!
And now for the photos:
After numerous failed attempts...
...we finally got a keeper.
