What's The Big Deal?
BWF wonders why I’m so excited

◊ B stands without help (with support)

The last thing that happened today will be listed first. While MF was bathing RLF, I sat BWF next to his exersaucer and took a few camera items into my office. I was gone four seconds. When I returned to the living room, he was standing. He’d pulled himself up using the bars of the exersaucer. It’s the first time he’s pulled himself into the standing position without anyone’s help.

◊ Improving the flash bracket

Just before supper, I turned one of my DIY dual flash brackets into a triple flash bracket by drilling an extra hole in the middle of the T-strap.

◊ Other notes on our day

BWF spent most of the day trying to pull himself into the standing position, using my leg, RLF’s high chair, the sofa, the entertainment center, and everything else. He did play with toys some, and ate decently. Took a nap at the same time as RLF.

RLF played well, alone, with me, and with BWF. She’s getting better about paying attention to him — he craves it, but she usually avoids him.

◊ Late packages

I keep getting email alerts from Amazon that a couple of my packages are running late because of “weather conditions or a natural disaster”, without any specifics. These are the Christmas gifts I’ve ordered for family members. One arrived without issue on Thursday, despite the natural disaster and/or weather conditions, having come by the same route (according to tracking information). The others were supposed to arrive on Wednesday but are still at large.

As long as they get here within a week or so, I’ll be able to get them to my family by Christmas.
