Big milestones for Bryn...

Today I left Bryn with Dave for the longest time I ever have in his short 15 month (tomorrow) life... I went to my counselling session, then met Jen for lunch afterwards and all in all was away from him for 6 and a bit hours. Apparently, he started crying as I walked down the driveway (I heard that but kept walking, as I didn't want to confuse him by coming back and seeming concerned, afterall he was with his dad and his big brothers who love him, and who he loves and trusts)... Then Dave sat with him for a bout 10 minutes while he settled down, finally getting distracted from his upset by the appearance of B1 and B2 on ABC, LOL... After that he was fine... Went down for his nap at the normal time, slept nearly two hours, played with the boys, and was calm and smiley when I came through the front door. Had REALLY long boobies (much to my relief, LOL)... And has been fine, and went to bed as if nothing different had happened today.

This is soooo good for me to see...

I was thinking about why babies want to be with their mums and dads ALL the time while sitting on the train going to the counsellors, and I came t the conclusion that for our babes it's like being IN LOVE... You know how when you're first in love with someone you just want to be with them all the time, and your heart ACHES when you can't be with them, and if they go for a short while, you can manage, but if they start to want to make a habit of going away and doing stuff without you, you start to wonder why they don't want ot be with you as much as you want to be with them... Well, I reckon that's how it is for our babies. They simply fall in love with us, and being away from us just pains them, and if we going away often they just can't understand why we don't want to be with them the way they want to be with us... So, basically, to be able to leave them without them blaming themselves, we have to ensure they fall in love with other people too, LOL, like dad, and nanna, or other people they see and can trust to be there for them and they can feel love them too...

Other miles stones... Ok, if you're not aware of my preoccupation with Bryn not walking yet, you must be living under a rock, LOL... BIG NEWS!!! Yesterday (Dave and my anniversary) he took multiple steps right off his own bat... TODAY he crossed the loungeroom TWICE!!! I think it's fair to say HE'S FINALLY WALKING!!!!

It's so funny... Erik walked in the week before turning 16 months. Luey walked in the week before turning 14 months, and now Bryn has decided to walk in the week before turning 15 months! The must be something special about "the week before"...

Finally, he's CLIMBING! It had to happen, this was NOT something I was long awaiting mind you... It started last week with climbing up on an upturned crate, then up on the couch, and finally his MAJOR goal, my very much coveted (by ever male in this household) black leather chair by the tv! Boy was he pleased with himself when he managed that, and thus come the following pics, LOL...

Bryn making it quite clear what he thinks of my requests for him to sit on his bottom in my chair...

Boogying down to The Easybeats and The Monkeys....

Aren't I the cleverest little chappy in Australia!!!
