- Cruising on furniture
- Growing about 4 teeth
- Babbling near-words
- Able to say Dada, Mama, and Bop! The latter is mostly repeating us when we tap him on the nose.
And it is all still wonderful. Christmas with the In-Laws, then New Years with my folks in FL. I didn't rant here about the new house drama, but we're on the next to last (I hope) round of contractor work, after the plumbing, then the asbestos removal, then the waterproofing. Now it is just the drywall and floor repair, then the fixing of the concrete in the front where they did the plumbing stuff.
Fortunately, homeowners insurance is paying for most of this, but man will it be wonderful to have the bottom half of the house back.
And that's the news.
