G(ideon): I am going up the stairs. Can't I go up the stairs, mom?
M: I would feel better if you knew how to get back down. Why don't you come here and tell me what is new with you?
G: Well, I have my first tooth just starting to poke through.
M: It is pretty excited. And it looks like a few more are on their way as well. You will soon have a mouth full of teeth.
M: I am pretty impressed with what you eat each day. A whole piece of pizza, any vegetables and any fruit. It is great. What else is new?
G: I am getting really fast at crawling on my hands and knees.
G: That happens most often when I am trying to get to the window to see the tractors.
M: What else can you do?
G: I can clap and wave my hands. I also am getting braver at standing with only one hand.
M: You are a big, brave, boy and I can hardly believe you are almost one year old!
