Competition for Rudolph?

Henrik is very determined in his quest for walking. He can walk all the way around the kitchen holding on the cabinets. He can also walk pretty much all the way around the front room by holding on to the sofas, coffee tables etc. This morning he managed to pull one of my pot plants over that I had thought there was no way of him reaching it. He still ikes to hold on to things with both hands so if you only offer him one hand for support he grapps hold of your trousers or holds on to the same finger with both of his little hands.

His little adventures sometimes end in trouble...most often he has just got to a point where he can't go any further but he can't go back the same way he came for one reason or another...this results in whining until we come and reposition him! Or even more serious - he falls over. Sometimes he doesn't even notice and just pulls himself up, other times the world ends and there is nothing you can do to stop him cry.

On Saturday night his nose was little bit red but not that much so we didn't think anything of it. When I went to pick him up on Sunday morning when he woke up he had a bright red nose! I first thought that I must have forgotten to wash his face properly and he still had some tomato sauce or somethign on his nose...but it didn't come off. It turned out to be a carpet burn. So the poor little lamb has a red nose from falling over, hopefully it will get better by Sunday, otherwise we'll have pictures of him trying ot blow the candle out on his 1st birthdaycake with shiny red nose...
