as i mentioned previously, P has become quite the busy body. he hardly sits still for one second and loves to be on the go. however, he also loves to pull himself up on furniture and see what he can get into. a few weeks ago, he began the charade of pulling himself up in his crib and standing. he would stand there for a really long time because he wasn't really sure how to get down yet, and most of the time he was happy just to be hanging out on the side of his crib. however, he would eventually let a shriek (or fifty) of frustration when he finally got mad about not being able to sit down. then, a few days later the shrieking stopped. so, being the genius new mommy that i am (*ha!), i just figured that P had finally learned to sit on his own and had gone sweetly to sleep. boy was i wrong! instead, upon waking him up, i discovered that he had found a new hobby...chewing on the crib rails!
