All by myself….

Come on, admit it, you sang that blog title, too.  Was rather hoping someone on Glee would sing this in last night’s episode, but oh well.

We seem to be in a break from teething. The whimpering has stopped, and although we can’t see them, 2 sharp little teeth can be felt on Curly’s lower gums.

In the last few days Curly has suddenly become really good at sitting on his own and he’s beginning to figure out how to get from belly/crawl position to sitting and back again.  But he’s become IMPOSSIBLE on the changing table. Thank goodness it’s not every change, but more and more often he flips himself over and tries to crawl away.  Even if we’ve got both of his ankles in hand, he flips his torso.  The other night I ended up holding him nearly off the table by only his ankles.  I am not looking forward to the day when he tries these antics in the middle of a poopy diaper change.

Oh, and we got this cool new toy that when you press on the top of its head it plays a cheery little tune and “crawls” along a hard surface slowly for 15 seconds.  Great motivation for a baby that’s beginning to crawl.  I wouldn’t recommend it for anyone with dogs that play with/destroy toys, but cats would likely be fascinated and entertained by it as well.

  1. X started doing the flipping around during diaper changes right around Curly’s age. We’ve had to get really creative about diaper changes. Emily has gotten very good at standing up against the wall diaper changes and I have an assortment of changing table only toys that often work. Or really silly songs. Good luck!

  2. The changing table is getting rough over here too! I love that both boys got so good at sitting so quickly!

  3. how much fun! can’t wait for a run away baby during diaper change

  4. I’m cringing at the the though of a poopy diaper flip. Eeeew. I think that little man will be scooting himself aroung the house in no time at all. How exciting!

  5. I didn’t sing it the first time I read it, but I can’t get it out of my mind now! I know I probably say this all the time, but it really struck me how much more grown up he looks in this photo – maybe because he’s sitting up?

  6. He’s so cute and I LOVE his jammies!!!

  7. He’s so big suddenly! Every time you post a picture I discover a new “most adorable” feature. This time it’s those eyelashes. What a doll!

  8. Curly don’t flip during a poopy change. Have some mercy on your mamas!
