Collin is sort-of waving now. Not so much actually waving, but if he sees someone leaving and they say bye-bye he sticks his arm out high in the air. Its so damn cute. I am really impressed with that, I didn’t realize that was something he could learn so early.
C is at the point now where he just wants to play all the time and its so much fun. He doesn’t want to just sit around being held or in his exersaucer or jumparoo, he wants to be on the floor digging around in his bucket of blocks, or playing with one light and sounds toy after another. He does this back arch, push off, stiff body thing when he wants to get down and I take it as an immediate signal that he’s bored. Its great that he’s able to communicate with us that way and even more great that we can sit him on the floor with an assortment of things and he’s happy as a clam.
He’s no closer to crawling today than he was last time I posted, or even the time before that. Its funny to me because he wants to move, move, move, but once he’s on the floor on his belly he just laughs for a few minutes, wriggles around a little bit, then just gets frustrated. He wants the instant gratification of getting from point a to point b, but doesn’t want to do the work. I think its because he’s smart enough to know someone will just do the work for him! Oh well, he’ll figure it out soon enough.
We had quite the week this week. Collin has been great, though, as usual. This has been the first week probably since before Christmas that he went to daycare all 5 days. I am so happy for this, because 1. we pay for it, and 2. he loves it there and it keeps him on a routine. I am excited for that and hope it continues.
I have the cutest video I really want to post, but we don’t have the right cord to get the video from the video camera to the computer, so it has to wait. I am dying to share, though. We’ve got to get on that.
