"Look Ma, no hands!"

Houston we have a problem. A 7 month old, not EVEN 7 1/2 months yet, that can stand and balance with no help. And not just for a fleeting moment, for like 60 seconds.
I am amazed, and overjoyed that he seems to have covered this milestone in no time flat....buuut....
I am quite scared at how our life is already changing because of it. He is suddenly a very active baby. Not that he wasn't before, but his activity is turning out to be quite demanding. The other day I got home from work and Alex looked like he had been in the trenches of a war, except this was just a day at home with Forrest!

And don't get me wrong, he is still the most amazing baby EVER, and has that charming smile to boot, but he is putting his parents through the paces.
So, needless to say, I wouldn't be surprised if we had a walker on our hands soon. At this point I just hope he at least waits till 9 months.
But according to Forrest he wants it now. We'll see what those little baby legs can do!

John says that's what happens with the first. You don't realize that your egging him on and they end up walking sooner than all the rest. Mayzie was up on her feet by 7 months too. It's a crazy world, but so much fun too. Best of luck to you parents though, you're right when you think your world is going to change!

So exciting and scary at the same time! Why must they grow up so quickly?!
