look out mom and dad!

hello world, it's oliver again!
a lot of events are going on in my life- i got my first tooth, i am eating big people food, i can clap, i am crawling and climbing all over everything. i am very curious and love being able to move around to explore. i have figured out where my basket of toys is and go over to it and pull out everything. who wants to nap when there is so much to see and learn and get into?

i have been pulling myself up on all the furniture. first it was just the sofa, but now i climb on the tv stand, the bookcase, even in my crib. i like to wrestle and climb all over daddy when he comes home from work. and i don't like to sit still, everyday i move a little more and a little faster. i like to keep my parents on their toes. mom is always watching me and telling me no- maybe that will be my first word. she tries to distract me with toys, but getting into things i am not supposed get into is so much more fun.

mom thought i wouldn't be so good at pulling myself up until i was about 9 months, but i proved her wrong. it helps that our couch is a little lower to the ground. and i can stay standing pretty good, when i pull myself up and hold on. i sometimes forget my balance isn't so good yet and let go, then fall down. but i am a tough boy- usually, i laugh, but sometimes i get scared and cry a little. our couch is my favorite thing to climb on. it is big with lots of pillows so i can fall an not get hurt. don't worry, mom watches me close to make sure i don't fall off. with all this movement and curiosity, she is worried i am going to be an early walker.

check out this video of me. i was trying to find the remote control (one of my favorite things). mom thought she hid it out of my sight, but she was wrong...
