Meanwhile, B now has 6 teeth! That's a record among his peers who have on average 2 teeth. He got the 2 lower central incisors at 6 months and then the 4 upper incisors (central and lateral) over the past few weeks. Ouch! While the teething resulted in plenty of sleepless nights, seeing his pearly whites makes all those groggy pats/cuddles/rocking worth it. I hope there'll be a brief respite so that he can eventually settle back to sleep "through the night" again (i.e. sleep by 8p, may wake briefly 1-2x but settles back on his own, real waking at 6/7a to start the day). Also, he seems to put everything in his mouth these days -- that is, everything BUT his actual teethers. What irony.
Physically, he's pushing up to stand wherever he can -- cot, sofa, toystool, etc. though he tends to tiptoe still. He continues to creep, roll, turn, scoot backwards, rock and bounce as he tries to move more than 2 steps forward. We've installed our window grills and bought a play "fence" - waiting for him to crawl for real! Guess B's been too busy growing teeth to focus on his crawling this past few weeks :)
