Jaspy’s Milestones – Climbing and Standing

Oh my goodness this little man amazes me everyday! I know it’s inevitable that these milestones will come around quickly but it still takes me by surprise and more than often causes me to cry!

Jaspy is almost 9 months now, he will be on the 16th Jan. This week he started climbing. He started by climbing the two steps that go from our lounge to the hallway. This was scary enough but surprisingly he actually stops at the top and waits for me to help him back down! Well he’s now started on the main stairs! He was crawling about in the hallway while I was hoovering. I started hoovering the stairs, turned around and he was hot on my heels! He made it 8 steps with me behind him before I freaked out and stopped him; he would have definitely made it to the top if I’d let him!


Not only that but tonight he pulled himself up to standing! Usually I’ll prop him up against something and he’ll stay for a while then sit down. Sometimes if something is very low he’ll pull himself to his feel but will be bent over. Tonight though, he was full on straight back standing!


New safety measures will need to be taken around the house; corner covers and stair gates and I’ll probably need to be a bit more camera ready too!

Well done little man; next stop walking!!

Thanks for reading!

      He’ll be walking around like Amelia in no time it scares me! We need to arrange that playdate, especially as the weather will hopefully be getting nicer!
