The new Simon

Simon became mobile just a couple of weeks ago, finally crawling. Because he had been cruising for some time before that, he's also walking with help like it's his job, and standing a few seconds at a time without touching anything. He's even doing a dive between us as his first steps toward independent walking.

All of this mobility has naturally made him much, much happier, and he now approaches everything with ten times the enthusiasm. He's like a totally different kid, in a good way. Sure, it leads to a fair amount of bumps and bruises, but now his curiosity literally knows no bounds, and it seems to encourage all of his other development as well.

But just as all of this new awesomeness comes about, he's got a few new issues. The first is, and I don't know why we should be surprised, he just might be working on those two-year molars. He's putting his hand deep into his mouth and drooling again, and has been having some strange whiney discomfort that seems just like his teething days.

All this change is the reason I wish I could spend more time with him. You only get one chance to see your kids go through this. The crazy rate of change will certainly level off before too long, but what a ride it is for now.
