Another Chair at the Table

My little boy has been growing so much in the last couple of weeks. First it was a few unsteady steps, then he toddled around after his big sister, and now he will chase her around the house. I would almost say he runs. Recently he has started to speak and understand language. First he responded to simple commands like, "sit" and most recently has responded to things like, "do you want to take a nap?" he will nod and walk to his crib.

But the one that broke my heart was, "Are you hungry?" he nodded and walked to the table, pulled out (wrestled with) the chair, and tried to climb up. We had been spending the last 2 weeks all sitting at the table together; 2 toddlers, mommy, and Connor in his highchair pushed up to the table. Apparently he was ready to join the rest of us.

It made me so sad to see my tiny little man sitting at the table, only barely seeing his food. His legs so short that they don't even hang over the edge. He had difficulty eating that day, but I got a picture. The next meal was in the highchair, but soon he will be with us permanently.
