Well, it is December and I realize I haven’t been writing much lately so I’m going to try to do a better job. My little life has been quite hectic lately and I’ve been on the move so much I haven’t had any time to sit down and write. But it is a dreary afternoon so I figured now would be a great time to pull out the laptop and start filling in my loyal readers on ‘life in David land’. All has been going well since my birthday. I’ve been playing with oodles of new toys and dressing in the hottest of fashions thanks to all of mom and dad’s fabulous friends and our family. I am definitely a candidate for ‘best dressed’ in school. I also have started standing and pulling myself up on everything and anything but I am very cautious and must make sure the surface is stable enough to hold me. I usually give it a few pats with my hand and make my assessment off of that. If I think its good, up I go and I will stand there for quite awhile. I am also getting so comfortable that I’m climbing onto the fireplace and even attempting to open the doors and go inside. That is not making my mom happy in the slightest and she keeps pulling me off. One of these days she is going to turn her head and I’m going to win. Either that or when daddy is around, I’ll outsmart him and he’ll find me sitting there with my gummy grin.
Aside from learning to stand, I’m climbing on stairs as well. I am having so much fun going up the three little steps between our living room and dining room. Trouble is, I don’t know how to get down so poor mom is always tagging right behind me. Yesterday, I got so adventurous that I climbed up half the stairs from our main level to the bedroom level. I was breathing pretty hard but was determined to make it as far as I could. Daddy couldn’t believe this amazing feat of mine so he made me show him when he came home from work. I think my little legs and stamina blew him away.
One other new detail in my life is I finally got a tooth on the top. Nearly two months ago, my bottom two teeth came in and it has been silent ever since. I’m guessing my other front tooth should appear in the next week or two. This is all so exciting. Now, maybe I will be interested in trying some new food although, meatballs seem to be my favorite so far. I definitely get that from mommy!
