Tadhg standing and Brendan's woody mammoth

In the middle of a bum change. Arrghhhh.

A couple of things I've been meaning to post about for a while now.

Tadhg is now pulling himself up to standing any chance he gets. He then looks around for someone to share his excitement with and gives us the biggest smiles. In the last couple of days he has started 'walking' his feet along while holding our hands and this evening he was 'walking' towards daddy holding my hands and when he got close enough he let go of one of my hands and reached for Steve- all without being prompted. I wasn't expecting that! I can't believe he's still only 7 months old. Maybe he'll walk early but we were thinking that with Brendan and he didn't walk until 11 and a half months was it? Anyway, it's exciting to share it with them isn't it?!

And Tadhg has just got his first tooth. Ouch. Although he already eats as though he has a mouthful of teeth. He likes his food so far. Fingers crossed it stays that way.

For a while now Brendan has been calling his penis his 'woody mammoth'. It started as a misconception I think... confusion between willy and woolly mammoth and he can't yet pronounce 'l' and says 'd' or some other consonant sound instead. So 'woody mammoth' got a few laughs and consequently seems to have stuck.
