So a week after his run in with Francis the cat Xander's face is looking much better already. Hopefully it won't scar- there are a couple of deeper spots that still are pretty pink but I think his skin is young enough that he should heal up no problem! It's been a very interesting week all around though. He cut his first tooth yesterday- it's still just sitting on his gum but he has a tooth! It's the front lower left tooth. Also I think he has been going through a growth spurt b/c he has been nursing every 2-3 hours all day and all night! This is in addition to eating 5-6 jars a baby food a day! The little piggy man... He has also decided that he needs to be a grand adventurer. Yesterday I found him three steps up the stairs! I was in total shock. The little bugger crawled right on up the stairs and then looked back at me like hiya mommy- aren't I the cutest! I just about died! So the true babyproofing began last night. Daddy needs to put the baby gate at the base of the stairs and we are slowly cleaning the living room of anything that can't be chucked on the floor or chewed upon! Away go the DVDs etc. Hopefully Frank will have time to build us the new entertainment center that we have been designing in our dreams! That way we can get all our fun things-like the playstation controller that he is totally obsessed with- out of his path of adventure!
