Uncle Mark sets a high bar

Haven's birthday is coming up.  Her first present coming from Uncle Mark, her godfather, sets a high bar in Haven''s pleasure for the rest of the family to match.

Starting at point guard, number 11...

More play

The new favorite toy is the push cart, and a persistent favorite is the big ball.  Now, she likes to "play catch." She gets a thrill out of sending the ball a long way and having one of us leap to get it.



Interactive

Haven's increasing social interactivity is evident.  She babbles throughout the day, and does so in social exchange with some word-like sounds.  She also is becoming familiar with some cues-and-responses, like the sheep going baaaa.

Walking

Haven was standing at 8 months, taking single steps on occasion at 9 months, rare multiple steps over the last few weeks, and in the last 2 days (>10 months) is regularly doing short walks.  They are more like staggers.  In any case, they are free-standing and involve movement.
