Al is walking all the time now. He only returns to his hands and knees to go up stairs or down stairs. He still insists on carrying things around in his mouth - we are a bit scared he models more on the dog than the other people - but also walks around the house 'singing' alot of the time.
The books say he should have six words by now. He has none. That is not to say he doesn't know what is going on - he certainly does. Or that he can't get what he wants - he certainly can. He has a raft of signs and grunts to inform and engage. He has started throwing the most wacking tantrums too. Fun times ahead
