Hayden has been showing signs of getting up by himself lately. He's been making the effort to try and stand on his own (he's been able to stand against an object like a couch but we've always had to prop him up to do it). Yesterday Liz and I were down in the foyer - I was about to haul some folding chairs back to a neighbor and I needed her to open the door for me. Hayden crawls to the top of the stairs and is looking at us through the gate. Sure enough, we're both looking at him as he grabs onto the gate and stands up all by himself.
Needless to say there were two proud parents clapping at him in the foyer. He was grinning from ear to ear.
