Michael celebrated turning eight months old by casually holding on to Daddy while playing with a toy standing up... and then letting go! So he's officially stood unassisted for a few seconds!!
Elizabeth keeps saying "I'm not ready for him to grow up" and "I still remember the day you were born". We're very amused, although we sympathize with the sentiment!
If seven months was locomotion, eight months is vertical. Now that he can pull to standing Michael spends a lot of time doing exactly that. Amelia finds his newfound mobility and height "'nnoying, Mommy". Daddy says Michael is showing signs of being as wild as Matthew. Michael certainly likes to roam about and get into all the things.
Michael is communicating more and more, especially with Elizabeth. He's also made a surprising amount of progress on the using the toilet front, to Amelia's great chagrin.
