Apples and pears

Alex climbed all the way up the stairs today! And without any assistance, either. He had his grandpa Foley behind him all the way to catch him if he fell, but there was no pulling or pushing involved. He just clambered his way to the top, one step at a time. Wow.

Still no real sign of him walking, though. He has mastered the art of crawling about on his hands and knees (he was still commando-crawling last time I wrote anything here), but that seems to satisfy him for now. He can get everywhere he wants by just crawling, so why get up onto his feet and toddle?

Sooner or later, though, he’ll figure out that by walking he can still get everywhere–only faster.
