What else? He's SO close to sitting up on his own! He really likes to stand up more, though. I'll try to get him to sit up on his butt sometimes and he'll keep straight legs and just want to stand. He's pretty much outgrown his swing so we're working on obtaining a jumperoo of some sort so he can have some solo jumping time. He's pretty big in his bouncer seat as well, so when he's not in mama's arms or working on sitting he's hanging on the floor on a blanket with his sister or something. He's doing a lot of tummy time, and while he CAN roll both ways now, he doesn't do it much. If he's naked he's more apt to roll back to tummy, but I hesitate to keep him naked for TOO long - we have to pile a couple towels underneath him when he's airing out, as you can imagine!
We're just having a lot of fun right now. The kids are both really fun ages and we're getting out and doing a lot of great fall activities on top of going on walks and out to our local park. We visited an apple orchard and pumpkin patch recently with my grandma, and tomorrow we're going to another apple orchard. On Saturday we went to the last day of the farmer's market at Mill City in Minneapolis, which was fun, and we've been doing fall baking, too - we made crockpot applesauce & then oatmeal applesauce bread in the bread machine with the applesauce Maia & I made! So fun! We're just really living it up right now and having a blast doing it.
And the kids - did I mention I'm having a blast with them, too!? They are both at such a fun age, as I said, and I'm loving it! Maia is the sweetest big sister and loving on her brother constantly. The other night he fell asleep nursing while I read bedtime stories to Maia, and she insisted I leave him there - she said "Go! I want to snuggle with him!" So I sat outside her door for a minute and let her snuggle, then grabbed a picture. What sweeties!
