|One of his favorite standing aids...a peanut can.|

I am one of those moms that really wants her kids to grown up to be humanitarians. I want Silas to help the needy and be grateful for what he has and therefore share with others. I want him to fight for what he believes in and all that. I just had no idea that it would start so early. My boy has taken a stand...a stand for standing. He his on a sleep strike until the rest of us realize the importance of his standing. We lay him in his crib sound asleep and he just pops his tiny head (well, it's proportional but he is tiny too) up and grabs the crib railing and just stands. He refuses to lay or sit anymore. The kid is devoted too. He falls and busts his face time after time as he trips over stuffed animals or loses his grip but he cries a few seconds and then yanks himself right back up again. I don't know how long this strike is going to last but I hope that maybe he loses a little steam for the cause so that we can get a little sleep here soon.
