the thirteenth month

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a walker.  
Last week Callum started braving the space between table and couch.  
He can also be coerced into walking from a trusted mom or dad to another trusted person or object several steps away. 
In the last few days he has proven that he can accomplish this feat on his own accord.  He can bring himself to a stand and take up to ten steps or so.  

I guess that means he can walk, right?  

Some things that stand out to me in this thirteenth month--
-s sounds.  S is is his go to letter sound.  When he wants us to notice something, he turns to this trusty letter.  
-the fascination with the fan and lights has returned.  He hasn't cared since he was a newborn, but now that fans are constantly on wherever we go, he excitedly points them out to us.  When we enter his room to pick him up from his crib, it is the first thing he does.  Points to the fan and says a word that sounds a lot like "see."  
-other kids.  His ability to actively play with other kids has really taken off.  Before now he didn't care that much.
-humidifier.  He loves his humidifier.  He inspects it constantly.  It cracks me up. 
-toilets.  At least once a day I have to chase him out of the bathroom so that he doesn't put his hands in the toilet.  It's probably time to babyproof. 
-I don't think he's going to be a pasty white kid.  He seems to already have a tan going even though we are only 2 days into summer break.  His tan skin with his blonde semi-curly hair is more than I can handle.
