I probably won’t be doing Baby Bits much longer… once E walks, he’s a toddler, right? Although “Toddler Bits” doesn’t have the same ring. I’ll have to think of something cooler.
Here are some photos from this week.
We had a visit with a friend (L) on Wednesday. Two little blue-eyed blondies sittin’ in a pool. It was great. And what a contrast! E is all about syllables and words, but L can walk! And he’s a month younger. He had colic and reflux as a small baby, and I think it made him antsy to take life by the horns. (Or the toes, the nose, the hair… whatever.)
And I thought my kid was busy… well, this one showed me. He was in and out and in and out of the pool, walking and tumbling all over the yard, back to the pool, raucous splashing, etc., and E… sat in the same spot in the pool and observed the goings-on. Got splashed, and seemed to like it. Did a bit of his own mini-splashing. I knew he was pretty laid-back, but suddenly it started to seem like shyness. (Though he’s not at all shy with pretty women.)
Here’s one from this morning. He went and got the sash from my bathrobe and put it on like this all by himself! And then proceeded to put a bunch of clean laundry on the floor all by himself. As I watched and laughed and took pictures. How’s that for mothering?
E, as I may have mentioned, is resisting naptimes and bedtimes “somewhat”. Today he was decidedly un-calm, despite droopy eyes and yawns, so I just clocked him upside the head.
HA! Actually, I simply left him to calm himself. He didn’t even fuss for long, and this was the result. 🙂 Yay!
And on that note… it’s time for me to go to bed. Stay tuned for more photos soon!
