Brecken started doing many new things last week while we were at Carolina Bible Camp!  First, he figured out how to get himself into a sitting position from laying on his tummy. He still can't sit straight up if he's lying on his back, but he sure knows how to roll to his tummy and then get up!  And he's very proud of it too - now when I go in to pick him up in the morning, he's sitting up grinning at me. Such a sweet smile! And even last night when he woke up in the middle of the night, I went upstairs and he was sitting up crying. This boy has no use for laying down anymore - as evidenced by the fact that it takes 5 minutes just to change his diaper because he's so wiggly!  Brecken's second new trick is pulling up to standing on furniture and such. The first time he did it was when me and mom were giving him a bath in a Rubbermaid tub (since we only have stand-up showers at camp). He was so proud of himself! He got this big smile on his face and then we couldn't get him to sit down. The rest of the week he tried to pull up on EVERYTHING. Dad claims that at one point Brecken was holding his fingers and standing and he kept standing for a few seconds even after he let go! I haven't seen him do that yet - he's so wobbly because he's got so much weight to balance and support.  The third milestone he reached last week was crawling! Granted, he's not flyin across the room yet, but he'll move one leg and then the other and then stop. Or he'll do a little frog hop. It won't be long before we won't be able to keep up with him!  It's amazing that he reached all these milestones within days of each other but it's probably because he was trying to keep up with Salem all week! I can definitely understand why second children tend to meet milestones earlier - they have to keep up with older siblings!
