Oh Silas. He's climbing on everything, breaking wine glasses, pulling everything out of the drawers and cupboards in the kitchen, pulling all the books off the bookshelf and ripping pages out of them, dropping whole rolls of toilet paper into the toilet, eating june bugs, and crawling all over the house, including onto and across the coffee table. The kid cannot be contained. He won't sit still, he flips over constantly while his diaper is being changed, he squirms out of your arms when you try to hold him, and he bites.
But OH.MY.GOSH. He gives the VERY best hugs, plays peek-a-boo, entertains us constantly, smiles incessantly, waves hi and bye, claps in excitement, is happy ALL THE TIME and laughs at us. He laughs at us, and it is my favorite thing ever! The kid thinks I'm funny. If I do something silly or say something in a funny voice, he will laugh out loud. He also does things to try to make us laugh and then cracks up when we do. And he climbs into his toy box. What a genius! He is pure joy. Seriously, this kid is the best, and I am LOVING this stage.
