Just a quick update because I’m packing!
This month, Phineas got to meet my folks in Brooklyn. He is almost standing unassisted, but not quite. He’s much surer on his feet, though, and can easily cruise around and use one hand to prop himself up while standing. He also figured out how to climb stairs and has even used furniture placement to navigate onto higher surfaces (like using the trundle to climb onto the bottom bunk). He has had a sound explosion and makes any and every sound as he babbles day and night. He’s a very exuberant boy and my dad gave the perfect description of him after meeting him. “Every other kid is coaxed into smiles. Phineas is always the instigator: ‘Hey, whoever you are, wanna smile with me?’ followed by the goofiest wonderfulest grin on earth. TRY not smiling back.”
