It took Soren forever to learn how to crawl, so I sort of thought he'd be on the slow track to gross motor skillfullness. But in just the past week, he's gone from being able to hold onto something when we stand him up, to pulling himself up to standing, to cruising around the living room holding on to furniture.
The other day I was mentally congratulating myself that we have actually done a pretty good job with the babyproofing. No sooner did I have the thought than I turned around and saw what Soren was playing with--one of those giant lighters used for the fireplace. So basically, a flame-thrower. The perfect baby toy.
