If you knew H, then you’d be able to see that he’s a very bright baby. He really thinks about things and is always trying to figure things out. I can see a lot of frustration with him because it looks like he’s trying to say something or tell me something and it’s just not working. It seems like he’s going to be a really chatty little boy.
Sometimes I’m not sure what is advancing more quickly – his brain or his body. Today we were playing on his fun alphabet play mat and there were a bunch of toys on the ground around where he was sitting. He looked around at everything there was to offer for him, and he reached down with two hands and picked up the pacifier and stuck it right into his mouth the way it should go in and then held it in there. Saying that he put it into his mouth sounds like no big deal, but two weeks ago he never would have had that kind of coordination. He’d be like jamming it in there sideways with one hand and scratching his head with the other hand and totally not able to sit on his own on top of all that.
We were at the doctor today, and instead of laying on the scale like he usually does he actually sat on it. This was totally a huge turning point. Every single appointment that we’ve had so far (and there have been a ton of them) he’s laid on the table and on the scale. Today he sat like a big boy on both! He liked it that way much better. I think he enjoys growing up.
