I can’t get this kid to sit down – even in the bath. It’s a little concerning because he has slipped a couple of times (and swallowed quite a bit of bath water) but he just won’t sit down and relax.

And it’s not just in the bath. If I sit on the floor for any period of time, Samuel is soon next to me, pulling himself up on my arm – or using my hair as leverage. Even when I’m standing up, he’ll pull himself up on my leg.

Yet he doesn’t seem very interested in walking, aside from a few instances when he has moved carefully from one piece of furniture to another. Still, I think he’ll be an early walker. He turns 9 months old next week.
