Bam! Look at all of these milestone.

This weekend has been the weekend for milestones!

1. Silas can climb the stairs without assistance.

We now have to keep the baby gates closed at all times!

2. Silas can walk.

Silas had been taking a step or two here and there for about a week now, but this weekend he started taking far more than a few! He isn't consistent yet. He'll drop down to crawl when he gets tired, but he sure does try!

3. Silas is saying words!

He's been saying Dada and Mama for a couple of months, but this weekend he has said "cat", "wow", "papa", and "bye-bye". I can't believe how much he's picked up already.

4. Silas drinks from a straw

We have been working with sippy cups and he just wasn't having them. He has been showing interest in straws so my MIL tried giving him sips from her water cup with a straw and he loves it! I bought him some sippy cups that have straws and he does alright with them. He is still working on closing his mouth so the liquid doesn't dribble out.

5. Silas likes to feed himself with a spoon.

Silas has suddenly become very independent and wants to feed himself. It's messy, but he feels so proud of himself!

When did my little guy become such a big guy?!
