Playful Day

Robert and I had fun times today! He was in an energetic mood, and we spent all day around the house, so we worked on some skills acquisition. He is so close to sitting up by himself! He can't get himself into a sitting position or anything, but if I sit him up, he'll sometimes stay there for several seconds before he starts to tip. I set him in the Boppy to sit, and he really liked it! Sitting up means he can see, and have the use of both his hands, and it's great. It's just a matter of time before he doesn't need any support. He's getting so big, so fast!

We also spent a substantial portion of the day away from the computer and the TV and the tunnel and the jumparoo, just playing. I took him outside for tummy time on our bamboo picnic mat. He liked watching the cars go by, so much that he hardly cried about being on his tummy. We also played on the bed, Mommy read a book while Robert chewed on one, and played tickle games, and I showed him Pat-a-Cake. When M got home, he played with Robert as well. It was a big playing day for the baby. We also weighed him again, for the first time in a few weeks. Fifteen pounds! He's still a little on the small side for his age, around the 25th percentile, but that's okay. He gets a lot to eat, he just burns a lot of calories! His next checkup is the 18th, but so far he's very healthy, and meeting his milestones too. Such a clever boy.
