1. In the last week or so, Jacob has started pulling himself up on absolutely everything. He is content only if he is standing while holding onto something. Unfortunately, he loses his footing or balance pretty quickly and has also been falling a lot. I no longer feel safe leaving him alone for one second. I just lowered his crib a week ago, and thank heavens I did because today after his nap I found him standing in it. I thought he couldn't pull up if he was in a sleep sack, but I was wrong. He will not give me a moment's rest, the little stinker!
2. Today while I was nursing Jacob in the boys' room, Jamie rushed in and said, "Mommy, I saw a bug." I asked what kind, where it was (a stinkbug--man, I hate those things), and I told him okay, but I needed to finish nursing Jacob before I took care of it. He ran off. A few minutes later I heard the toilet flush; then Jamie came back to announce he had taken care of it. Apparently he smashed it with his rain boot, picked it up with a tissue, and flushed it. I never even saw it. Having kids has officially paid off.
