the last update on him, 6 months ago!
Like most 1.5 year olds, he isn't terribly inclined to sit still, especially now that he is walking, although he will if you are reading him a book that he has brought you. And while he is very active and trying to keep up with his sister, he is also a cuddler who gives great hugs. He usually hates diaper changes (though sometimes a toy or Calista will help him along) and loves to giggle and run away from me while getting dressed.

Craig can go up and down the stairs with ease, occasionally even thinking about walking up the stairs... but he's not quite there yet.
Craig still isn't sleeping all the way through the night, which is frustrating. He usually wakes up once and insists on nursing before he'll go back to bed. If I try and hold him without nursing, oh, the screaming.

While he doesn't say a ton of different words,* Craig is definitely on his way to talking. He also loves to shake his head if you ask him a question ("Do you want more food?), but shaking his head "no" actually means "yes." Not confusing at all, and pretty adorable. If he actually means no, he will make it very clear... by pushing said food away, for example.
While in Oregon at Christmas, we gave him a little haircut. But more recently, I pulled out the big guns, and he got his hair cut with the electric clippers!
The best "after" picture I could find? Much shorter!

I love you (kind of... he says the same mumbly phrase after we tell him "I love you" and it sounds kind of right...)
