Mack started crawling at 8 months, on September 11. Within about 4 or 5 days he was trying to pull himself up on the kitchen foot stool and other short things. He mastered that in about a week, then moved on to pulling himself up on taller things like the couch, the computer desk and the fire gate. He started cruising along the furniture this week. He is now 10 months old and has figured out how to open the kitchen cabinets.
Wait for it...wait for it...
"Mama, those pans attacked me!"
I guess it's time to install the safety latches before he discovers he can get into the cleaning supplies.
