The Little Elvis work-out

It is so fun to watch Little Elvis crawl around and cruise around on the furniture. He tries to pull up to standing on everything he can get his little hands on, and he's successful a good bit of the time.

We are so proud of him and his accomplishments, but man have my days become more hectic. He is a pro at scouting out whatever it is in the room that I don't want him to find and putting it in his mouth.

Somehow he found a leaf in the living room yesterday (maybe it came in on the bottom of my shoe?) I found the leaf sticking out of his mouth.

Little Elvis can pull to standing on all the ottomans and chairs in our living room, he can pull himself up with the latch on our hutch, the oven, drawers, my legs, (standing, sitting or lying down) his safety gates, the inside of his playpen, the outside of his crib and his high chair.

My favorite is the high chair. This entertains him for several minutes while I fix his food.

He's also pretty good at pulling to standing on the walls. He's not 100 percent at this, though.

So our days are pretty much filled with standing and sitting. If that was it, then we would have a super happy house.

Unfortunately for the cats, standing and sitting aren't the only things he loves to do.

Little Elvis adores the cats. He's just like Elmyra from Tiny Toons. He wants to love them and hug them and pull their ears.

For some crazy reason, the cats don't enjoy this. Little Elvis doesn't realize that they don't enjoy his version of petting them, so he chases after them.

I'm hoping that this new game will help Wally tone up his belly.
