Today's Trip

Today while Daddy was at work, Mama and Mr. Munch spent some time relaxing. After a bottle breakfast and some time in his bouncy, Mr. Munch needed a nap. A good thing, too, because the Munch Family spent the day out and about! As soon as Daddy got home, the whole family whirled about for a quick turn around time in order to get Mr. Munch to his doctor's appointment!

I like to stick out my tongue...

Mr. Munch was given a clean bill of health from Dr. Ron. He currently weighs 18 pounds, 12 ounces and is measuring 29 inches long! He was very well behaved throughout his entire appointment, so he was treated to another ball! This time he got green, but he didn't seem to mind too much. It was still fun to taste!

Maybe green and purple taste different. There's only one way to find out!

Because the Munch family lives in a house that was built about 100 years ago, Mr. Munch was also treated to a not-so-fun lead screening. The nurse had to prick his toe, so socks were worn for the rest of the day to make sure that he didn't try to pick his band-aid off.

Such cute stocking feet!

After other time consuming errands were run, Mama sank into her chair at home and realized that she didn't have quite as many pictures as she wanted. While laying on the ground trying to get sock pictures, she noticed that not only were the feet a little further from the gate than normal, but that Mr. Munch was a little shaky. Standing up, Mama realized that Mr. Munch was standing on his own, shaking a teething star.

 The exact moment he realized what was happening.

 Wanting to get a better standing picture than yesterday, Mama snapped picture after picture while Mr. Munch tested his new talent over and over and over again. For a few minutes he alternated between sitting (not for long), standing supported by the gate, and standing on his own! He even continued to shake his toy while standing, further impressing his parents.

One step closer to independence.
