Bill thank you for the info on them it actually made me think it isn't so bad after all...Everything people have been telling me is the worst about them even being temperamental but I guess I hadn't taught had they ever lived with a Too. My little super star is standing on his own well he is not totally standing the right way he kind of sits on his bottom but his feet are well placed on the ground. I started holding him to stimulate his walking I am not sure if this can help. On Wed. we have the doctors apt. I have already made a space in my florida room for him :O).
