This guy gets around!

I'm not sure if I'm ready for walking. My usual view of West these days is generally the back of his head on his way to something I'm realizing I need to babyproof. He's growing so fast. He's still doing the army crawl, but maybe 10% of the time he'll do a REAL crawl! His latest development is waving hi and bye. It totally shocked me! We are always trying to get him to do it and the other day we were talking to my mom on the web cam and she said "bye bye West" and waved and he waved back. So we tried it again and he did it again. We're having so much fun with him as he's becoming more and more interactive with us...he is so sweet!

This is his determined look as he's going for whatever he's about to get into...

Our little prodigy...I didn't help him get into this position at all. The only thing I did was turn it on for him, once he started playing. He LOVES the keyboard.

NOTHING about this set is baby proof. The whole thing is going to have to go!

I grabbed him right after this picture. So far I've been successful at keeping him from eating dog food, but he is pretty determine. Most of the time I've started keeping the laundry room door shut, but then I forget to open it and poor danger is probably starving (you'd really think that if you've seen his latest hair cut!)

He still loves his swing. He won't sit in it anymore, but he climbs all over it. It freaks me out. Sometimes he climbs up the actual swing. He thinks it's hilarious swinging it back and forth, but I'm not brave enough yet to leave and pick up my camera to get a shot of that.

All that action and he's still got his beautiful cheeks. I love it!

He's getting so big. Brennan loves to crawl all over his swing too. It's a great toy now for letting him walk all around it and push the swing. We just took it down to storage yesterday. I'm sure Weston will taste one of those dog foods soon enough. He'll think it's a cheerio - until he tastes it.

Wow that Weston is a little mover and a shaker, what a cutie!!! You are in for it if it is only August and he doesn't turn 1 until December! ;)

Wow, he is getting around. I'll enjoy Kara as she is now... not moving because they sure get into stuff don't they? I love that determined look in the first pic!

I hear you on not having the house baby ready! Wynter started crawling on all fours instead of army crawling, she is even faster now! We are in trouble aren't we?!

I can't believe how much he looks like your baby pictures! He is so big!! Don't worry about the dog food, he's bound to get into it! I miss you!!!

holy crap that kid has gotten some chub since I last saw him. He is looking more like a prop, and less like a wimpy wing like his dad. Chelsy, I agree that I am much cooler than your husband, but you are stuck with him, so you had better at least act like you like him! So when are you guys coming to Seattle anyways?

Talk to you later,

Dawson
