The day has arrived...

I had been preparing, and expecting this day for a few days now...and it still shocked me! I walked into the nursery on Monday after Jacob's first nap...and he had been playing happily in there for a few minutes...so when he started crying I went in there to get him...and there he was...STANDING IN HIS CRIB!! I'm not sure how long he had been standing there, but he wasn't happy when I walked in. I had to get pictures though...which made him cry even more! So I only got a couple of pictures and got him out of the crib. The next morning when he woke up from his first nap, I went in right away and got pictures of a much happier baby standing up. :) He has been standing in his crib ever since! And that has made it difficult for him to take naps...since I usually just lay him down in his crib while he's drowsy but awake, he will sit up, then stand up...and stay awake! He really only took about a 20 minute nap all day yesterday. He was too busy trying to climb on things, crawling around, and exploring. Last night he even tried to climb upstairs to where Randy was! He successfully climbed the first step but tried to sit down and fell back...He wasn't a happy baby in the evening...he was cranky and not his usual smiley-faced boy, but he just didn't want to sleep! Too much to do I guess...At the end of the day he was an exhausted baby, he fell asleep around 7:30 and slept until 7:30 this morning! Here is a video...for some reason it won't let me add pictures right now so I'll have to post some pictures later...hope you enjoy!

I remember when Benjamin started to do that I was so frustrated with the whole nap and bed time thing. I just had to put him in there and let him cry for 5 mins go in not talk lay him down let him cry for 10 mins do the same thing and keep adding 5 mins on. It eventually worked and now he, usually, knows that when I lay him down it is time for sleeping.

Randy's laugh sounded a little high-pitched and girl-like. I thought it was Claudia at first.

Cute kid, though. :)

I agree with Joel- Randy sounded a bit more like Candy there for a minute...I think it must be a Taylor thing - when Mark gets mad he sounds like Marsha! The video is too cute! Slade has started pulling himself up a bit from a sitting position, not from laying down- what a bittersweet day that'll be. Ahh, what adorable cousins (and parents)!
