5, 10, 15 steps!

I took my first two steps on the fourth of July when we were up visiting Memere and Grandpa, but Mom didn't get to see them. Since then, I've taken a few steps here and there but nothing regular. But I really started to get the hang of it this week. Since Thursday I've been taking as many as 15 steps at one time before dropping to my knees and crawling. The funny thing is, since I've been working on walking I've forgotten how to crawl. I used to be Speedy Gonzalez but now I'll crawl really fast a bit and then sprawl flat on the ground. I, of course, think this is hilarious!

In other news, I also started saying my first "word." We have these touch and feel flash cards with pictures of animals and cars and things on them. When someone shows me the dog flash card, I start barking softly "woof woof." Everyone gets a kick out of this.

Tooth #5 is finally here!

Nolan's front-left middle incisor is finally coming in, to join the two top "fangs" that came in a month or so ago, making Nolan look a little like a vampire bat. The tooth first showed signs of coming down a few weeks ago and the entire length of the tooth finally popped through this morning! No word yet on when this tooth's friend, the other top middle-right incisor, will be joining it.
