Pulling up- On Monday, Little Ish surprised us by pulling himself up in his crib, and then later he pulled himself up on the coffee table. Admittedly, Little Ish has been able to pull himself to a squat and a kneel for quite some time. He also pulled himself to what appeared to be a stand a few weeks ago while in his high chair which resulted in quite the fall. I don't count the highchair incident though since it was so singular in nature.
Clapping- This may not be a formal milestone, but it is really cute. On Wednesday, Little Ish started clapping for the first time. Now, if anyone says "hooray!", he starts clapping.
First word- When Little Ish is being fussy, one of the few things that always calms him down is letting him talk on the phone. After a particularly fussy Thursday morning, I called Ish on his lunch break in hopes of calming the little guy down. When Ish was talking to him, Little Ish responded with "Dada!" and then looked at me with a big smile on his face as if to say "Look what I just did Mom! Did you hear me? Did you?!"
High-Five- Another informal milestone. Little Ish now gives high-fives.
