Ready, set, go!
Baby just keeps moving faster! Prepare yourself for some intense playtimes as baby scoots all around the house and puts anything he can get his hands on into his mouth. As long as you keep him in your eyesight whenever he's on the loose, though, it's fine to let him explore — after all, that's the best way for him to learn!
[tip] Lay newspaper around the foot of baby's high chair to make cleaning up after meals easier. Now that he's able to grab and throw small objects, expect things to get a little (okay, or a lot) messier.
