Julian is almost 10 months and standing up is now his favorite thing. Excuse his bare bottoms but if you can handle that, you will be able to handle anything in life. The wash-out effect is not added, it was just too bright in the bathroom and there was a flare. Julian also stands up inside the kitchen cabinets, in his crib, and on his way to conquer the stairs.
His big brother, on the other hand, has put bouncing off the walls on hold for the moment, and is more and more often inclined to quietly "read" a book on the floor, or to fall asleep there at random times throughout the day (usually not his nap or bed times).
And a casual portrait of Shelbycat, because she is the silkiest, fuzziest, prettiest girl in the whole wide world.
