New trick: standing up by himself, kind of

Will has always been a stander - in fact, before he could sit up by himself, he would cry when we tried to hold him in a seated position, and would stop when he held him in a standing position. This was especially true when we would burp him after feedings. He even falls asleep standing up sometimes! Now he's getting sturdier, and we found that as long as he can hold on to something, he can kind of hold himself up for a little while. At least for as long as there are enough things to keep his attention directly in front of him, like the TV remote. As soon as he sees something interesting on either side, we are ready to catch him as he nosedives.
