He's also been letting go and balancing on his feet for up to 3-4 seconds at a time. He loves the pool and can walk all over the baby pool in his floaty, although he is a little too tall, or it's too low. It's giving him lots of balancing practice. He has started yelling at us when he's mad, and did I mention that as soon as I start to sing Pat A Cake, he will begin clapping on his own? I don't even have to touch him, he just is very smart and knows that we clap during that song. I am excited and grateful to see these changes in him as he gets older and can communicate and interact so much more. He's really turning into my little boy now instead of just my baby.
