1. I came into his room after his nap yesterday afternoon and he was standing up in his crib. He was shaking his arms so as to rattle the crib. That was the first time he's been standing up in his crib without our help. It's funny because when Carson was just born and we'd watch him sleeping in his crib we'd say "I can't believe one day we are going to be walking into his room and he's going to be standing up". That day is here and it came so quickly.
2. He gives high-fives. You ask him for one, his eyes light up and his hand goes right up in the air. He doesn't quite know to move it and hit your hand, but he puts his hand up ready to receive a high five.
3. As I mentioned earlier, I'm trying to get rid of his third nap in the late afternoon and it's coming along quite well. He's still pretty sleepy in the afternoon but he's OK for the most part. Yesterday we went over to Carrie and Rob's for pizza to celebrate Ethan and Isabelle's first day at JK (I can't BELIEVE how old they are!) and on the way over Carson fell asleep in the car. When we got there, we left him in the car and he slept for about half an hour. Jeff and I kept going out to the car every 3-5 minutes cause the thought of him waking up in a car without anyone there was killing us, but he needed to sleep. It's the first time we've done that - but I'm sure not the last :)
