This is a picture of Noah standing up in his crib after a nap! He pulls himself up in his crib and squeals with delight. He's quite delighted with his new view of his room! Emma the dog waits patiently while Noah naps, but is always excited to go see him as soon as he's awake. Noah is getting at least two (maybe three) new top teeth, so the last few nights have been sleepless and restless for everyone at the Diamond house.
Noah's favorite songs are currently "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" and "Open Shut Them." Both songs are about body parts, and he is always pointing out his own nose and mouth, along with Daddy's and Mommy's. He is also very interested in toes, feet and socks.
Noah is standing more than he is crawling at the moment. He is very intent on pulling himself up on everything, and once he is standing up, he looks for things to drop. He practices his balance and flexiblity by leaning over and picking things up. His balance is really improving, and he is also trying to learn how to get back down into the sitting position after standing.
Here's some more pictures. Enjoy!
