Stephen's trainer is convinced that Stephen is going to be an independent walker within the next 2-3 weeks. In fact, she asked us to call her in Michigan while she is on vacation when it happens! She was also extremely impressed with his imitative play - he showed her how he "cleans" his table with a baby wipe, which I showed him how to do last week.
You would think that an hour of PT would wear him out so that he would be willing to take a good nap for me, though, wouldn't you? Nope, not our boy! His new "trick" is to throw his bitey out of the crib and then yell and cry until someone comes up to give him back. On Monday, he tried this trick, but I caught him in the act. He was standing up, about to drop Bitey over the side of the crib when he spotted me. Stephen laid down immediately, and attempted to cover himself back up with his blanket, as though he was doing nothing wrong... He is very sneaky!
