Yesterday TJ's teacher came over for the first time in just over a month, since she'd been on a break.
She went to pick him up thinking he would be light, and had to stop and readjust for a better grip because he's so heavy! she was suprised. lol,
Then we played with him, practicing tummy time, reaching for things, etc. And she got out her Oball which is a toy used in therapy that has holes to make it easier for baby to grasp and is very light. At one point she had managed to shove one of those jingling cat toys into the Oball through alot of determination (because it had to stretch the hole enough to fit through but couldn't be small enough to pop out and choke some child)
Well TJ focused on that little jingling ball, and he put two and two togther, at least in his own little way.
He decided he WANTED That ball in there so he grabbed the Oball with both hands, and tried to stick his tongue thru one of the holes to get the little jingle one. it was SO funny, he had this determined look on his face as he kept moving the toy back and forth (to bring the smaller ball towards his face)
It was HILARIOUS!! My little man is getting so smart, it's unbelievable. This morning he let us sleep in nice and late (10:15am!) and when he woke up daddy made his food and then brought him into our room to snuggle while we had him hooked up to his feeding pump. He kept looking at me and studying my face (not crosseyed either, lol) and then just softly making noises and "talking"...
I can't wait to see how he changes and grows over the next few months before Mason gets here!
