brief update

9 1/2 month update:
-Dylan loves to play peek-a-boo with just about anything. Around corners, going up the stairs at night to bed with daddy holding him and mommy peeking around his shoulders, under the covers.
-He has been rocking himself on hands and knees to help put himself to sleep for naps and at bedtime. I
read online last night (partially out of concern for normal development and curiosity) that "stimulation of the vestibular system is very important to motor learning and possibly higher cognitive development."
-When playing with his toys, he now will carry one with him while he crawls to another. And sometimes when he is standing at the coffee table, playing with something and drops it, he reaches back down to pick it up again. Pretty amazing how these little developmental milestones just happen.
-And yesterday, according to Ryan, while feeding him breakfast: Dylan reached out for Ryan's closed hand, opened his fingers with one hand, then placed his plastic egg toy into it with his other hand.
-Seems to "study" the workings of wheels on his toys.
-Still loves shoes and doorstops.
-And today held up his right arm in response to daddy waving at him across the room (probably a prelude to a wave-back)!
