And a milestone

Iyyar took his first independent steps yesterday. Go Iyyar! He will now walk around the house quite well holding on to one of my fingers, and yesterday pulled himself up on the rocking chair, took two tentative steps, and went boom. And then did it again. And again. He won't walk if you try to get him to do it--just gives you this completely innocent blank look--but once he thinks you're not paying attention, off he goes.

Oh, and in the stroller this morning? He wore the hat.

I don't have any words of wisdom re:hat wearing. My son, now 14, did the same thing. He added a cheerful "Oops!" before each toss.Just keep trying to be more persistent than a toddler.Cyndy
